Broken News?

About an hour ago, I was walking to work past the FBI building and noticed the NBC news team set up. They were practicing the shot with the cameras and the lighting, and I overheard the news correspondent say " what may be their biggest catch yet..." and then some tech guy correct him "no, we don't know that, can't say that." Ooh! I thought. Something has happened! We caught some high-up al-Qaeda operative! Or Saddam's second cousin's half-brother's lover who was also, coincidently, a reprehensible sadist! So I scurry into work and check the news pages. Nada. Not even on CNN where they tend to over-hype every breaking news story. What was going on out there? Are they just practicing on the off-chance that news happens? Or do they know something we don't know? NBC? You're suspect.
