Snow Kidding! New York Dailies In Storm Coverage Photo Finish

    Why did the NY Post refer to “Snowstorm Nemo”? That’s a gimmick dreamed up by The Weather Channel, owned by the parent company of NBC. MSNBC did storm coverage leading into the shows hosted by Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell (the latter two were off and the shows were co-hosted by others) and they did NOT refer to “Snowstorm Nemo”. The 6:30 pm newscasts from the NBC broadcast network were pre-empted by WHDH-TV so I don’t know if Brian Williams ever said “Snowstorm Nemo” Maybe WJAR-TV viewers got the newscasts and could report on this.
