D'oh! Rene Syler's Short Memory

The Early Show's Rene Syler introducing a guest in the 7:30 a.m. half hour of today's program: "Last year, Ashley Smith became front page news when an accused killer took her hostage..."

Um, actually, Rene, that happened THIS year, in March.

Of course, with the 24/7 news cycle it feels like it was five years ago, sometimes looking back on it. At any rate, I'm sure I'm the only one of the show's seven-person audience who noticed, Rene, so don't feel too bad.
