Royal Baby Topped Afghan War In 2013 Network Coverage

For anyone who's wondered which stories the big three networks covered most in 2013, this report's for you. It's the Tyndall Report from Andrew Tyndall, who tracks how much time nightly newscasts for ABC, CBS and NBC spend on the year's major news stories. And the results are enlightening, to say the least.
The main networks' third-most covered story of 2013: health care reform's rollout — which obviously meant a lot of negative press for the White House.
No. 2: another politics story — the federal budget battles and October's government shutdown.
