Seeing triple

It’s not uncommon to see the same stories on all three network newscasts, even at the same time.

But last night was rather strange — the same person in the same room at the exact same time — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama being interviewed by Brian Williams, Charles Gibson and Katie Couric.

The screen grabs that follow were all taken with 10 seconds of 6:32 p.m. eastern time. By the way, NBC’s interview with Obama ran slightly longer than ABC and CBS.
