So many stories swirling around in the mix, and yet not a lock for the lead among them. This day will go down to the wire. We have reporting from the White House (on several fronts) on health (trans fats and the news made here in New York on that topic today) and much more. This is something of a rushed posting today as I'm just in from North Carolina, where I spent the first part of the day taping a segment that will air tomorrow night.
QUOTES OF THE DAY
"I'm just trying to clarify any of the rumors that's out there about me trying to have a suicide attempt..."
- TERRELL OWENS OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS
"Terrell has 25 million reasons why he should be alive."
- KIM ETHEREDGE, TERRELL OWENS' PUBLICIST (did you all get the reference to his salary?)
And with that began the short news conference that explained (or attempted to) the most talked-about story in the sports world -- the rumored/misreported suicide attempt by a Dallas Cowboy. He says that while he might have mixed medications and supplements and pain killers, he didn't try to kill himself. He later thanked the city of Dallas' Emergency Services. Glad that's resolved.
As I write this, WNBC-TV is breaking a major local political story, which we will keep an eye on in terms of impact and national scope. It's worth reading for its reporting and content.
We still have a few pieces to put in the right places, but it's early yet! We hope you will join us for tonight's broadcast.
