Job Inopportunity

CNN is reporting that CBS has fired the producer who decided to cut into CSI:NY to air the breaking news that Arafat had died instead of waiting 5 more minutes to air it during the news hour. For those not fans of CSI:NY, the breaking news segment started just at the point where they were resolving the case, and ended as they did previews for next week. Apparently people were so upset (my brother included) that CBS had to re-air the episode in its entirety tonight. I'm hoping that more played into it and it wasn't just that one decision that got this guy fired.
