No news is news

The hardest news story to cover is the one where there’s no news story to cover. We journos set up shop every year at the airport to tell you about the headaches that are evident on this busiest travel day of the year.

There are few lines at Minneapolis-St. Paul. There are no disruptions of note at the security area, and the FAA map shows the only airport delays are in New York City, where it’s only news if there’s delays there.

Looking at the images from MPR’s Tim Nelson, who drew the short straw this year, we’re tempted to wonder how things are at the bus and train stations.
