Same stories on 2 and 4. Same 2 second footage. More info on that old Dejac story. Why do you news people use the same footage almost down to the story. Nothing original here. Also, the graphs of people arrested should at least be available on the computer.

I agree!! I'd be interested to know WHO was arrested. This is a MAJOR story that seems to be getting squashed by the media.

Are most of these news cast and stories more about the 4 year old child handing over drugs,and the 78 year old man using his own perscription drugs more to get attention from the public? or should they really be focusing on the "big fish" selling major drugs and having weapons. I have seen more coverage on the youngest and oldest than on the biggest and badest. Where are the names of the federal arrest?
