We Interrupt This Broadcast

In the end, Fitzgerald accused Libby of lying about his conversations with reporters, not outing a spy.
They spent two years and many dollars to come up with this.
All three networks interrupted their broadcasts to carry Fitzgerald’s press conference live. Hmm. I wonder what other historical events were considered important enough to interrupt commercial broadcasts? (Hat tip: NC.)
