It is mystifying why NBC decided to lead with the minor earthquake that occurred in Illinois. It registered just 5.2 on the Richter Scale and caused no injuries and minimal damage. Neither of the other two newscasts thought it newsworthy enough for a correspondent. Kevin Tibbles strung together videotape from Louisville and Evansville showing the slightly surprised reactions of early morning local TV news teams. Tibbles was in Chicago and he seemed puzzled, too, about why he was covering such a non-event--he slept right through it.
