CNN's Washington bureau chief sent a taunting message to his cable news rivals about their respective coverage of the death of Kim Jong Il on Sunday night.
The news of the North Korean leader's death broke late Sunday night -- hardly an ideal time for news organizations. Coincidentally, the death of Osama bin Laden was also announced on Sunday. However, whereas that event prompted the highest, most immediate levels of coverage from all corners of the media, Kim's death was met with a good deal less urgency.
Still, the news was big enough for Sam Feist, CNN's Washington supremo, to crow that his network had switched from sleepy Sunday night programming to breaking news coverage.
