in bed bugs

Just a tip we received from a reader. Thanks reader!

According to their website, the program runs from 6:30 – 7 EST.
Check your local listings, get those DVRs and TIVOs cranked up, and let’s hope it’s a good one. MSNBC has done good work on bed bugs in the past, and has many useful items on their site from previous stories. If a recording ends up on the web, we’ll link to it here tomorrow.

GAH. It’s on at 5:30 here. I’ll never make it home in time.

Oh, well. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for good coverage. Keep me posted, guys?

Yeah me too! My TV does not work and my internet connection does not seem to like video streams … but I’m sure it will be linked here if it can be linked. That is one of the greatest things about this site! 🙂

So even if I can’t actually watch it–I’ll hear enough about it to know, pretty much, what it was all about

So did it run???

I meant to say–I missed it. So i am looking for it on their website. The Nightly News podcast is from 5/16 and the Early Nightly vCast is from yesterday.
When someone sees the link, post it here.

I watch & recorded the newscast, but I did not see the story on bed bugs. Maybe it got bumped for another story.

Thanks Doug, I know that happens all the time. Maybe tonight instead.

I assure you it did get bumped for another story. My mother specifically watched and waited for it to come and and nothing. There was something about some tennis champions instead.

HI Dawn,
I was convinced already, but thanks for the confirmation, and sorry your mother wasted her time. We were working on good information, from someone who was told by producers the segment would run, as well as another reader who saw the commercial for it the same day. These things happen.
