"It does kind of make you wonder how big a blood bath there has to be warrant their attention in prime time. How bad does it have to be to supplant 'Dancing With the Stars'?"

--Tom Kunkel, the dean of the University of Maryland's journalism school, on the lack of network prime time coverage of the Virginia Tech massacre. CBS expanded last night's "Evening News" to an hour, and will air an hour-long special, "Virginia Tech: Anatomy of a Rampage," from 10-11 p.m. tonight. "Obviously, it's [a] very important [story]. But at the same time, we don't want to be endlessly repeating the same information," ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider told Paul Farhi.
