    Cable has lots of time to fill, so they would cover this story as possible.

    But once upon a time, big stories preempted broadcast shows.

    This is a big local story. At least four broadcasters preempted for all or part of Christie's press conference.

    WNBC TV4 stayed. Not a shock.
    WABC TV7 stayed until they got really really bored, but most of the event.
    WNYW TV5 (Fox) did stay for some of it. Cringing all the time, I bet.
    WCBS TV2 cut away very early. It seems the change of tone at CBS News goes all the way down the line.

    New Jersey stations WWOR TV9 (Fox) didn't check
    NJTV is not really a station, per se. Just a program on PBS.

    cheerleaders need not apply.
