ABC evening news had some spacewalk coverage on their broadcast tonight, and I use "coverage" and "evening news" in the loosest sense possible. ABC hinted at age problems with the NASA spacesuits and seemed to base it on one comment from an astronaut about his feet being cold. Granted, they went so far as to mention the previous incident with the water coolant leaking in the Italian astronaut's helmet, but all we got other than that was...really nothing. Good god the evening news is nearly on par with local coverage. We've gone from Walter Cronkite-level clarity and depth to Desperate Housewives-level brainless shreiking.
Also, if any old timers want to pop in just to tell me how bad Cronkite was and that he abused nuns with bacon fat and jellybeans, don't bother unless you've got good photographic evidence. Actually, I think that one evening news broadcast finally broke 2013 for me. It was already fucked up to an inhuman level, but come on 2014, get here already and give that masochist 2013 the boot.
