ABSTRACT
This article comments on the decision of three U.S. television networks to rotate coverage at the end of the first round of hearings on the Watergate scandal. This decision prompted reflections on what network news department expect when they used nearly identical pooled coverage. When it became evident that high drama was not in prospect, the networks retracted and they blamed the adverse reaction of daytime audiences. However, the audience were not be blamed since it was these networks that have encouraged habits that produce a hostility towards television.
