CBS Apologizes for Interrupting CSI for Arafat Death
CBS NEWS interrupted the final minutes of Wednesday night’s episode of CSI: NEW YORK in order to air a special report about the death of Yasser Arafat. CBS has apologized and says it will rebroadcast the episode, in its entirety FRIDAY at 9PM CENTRAL TIME.
“An overly aggressive CBS News producer jumped the gun with a report that should have been offered to local stations for their late news. We sincerely regret the error. The episode of CSI: NEW YORK will be rebroadcast Friday, Nov. 12.”
Hilarious. Given the topic of the show, they should have tried to work the Arafat death into the script.
(Alternate quip: Now CBS apologizes?!)
