The Fluff-O-Meter is Working Overtime

With a Royal Baby Due, News Outlets Are on High Alert.  (The New York Times, 7/14/2013)

And you can't get much softer and fluffier than a Royal birth.

Which, as the Times reports, means that exceptions must be made.

Now, with Prince William’s child on the way, scores of reporters and photographers are on standby in London.

NBC and ABC, on the other hand, are sending over anchors. The “Today” news reader Natalie Morales flew to London on Sunday. The “Good Morning America” weekend anchor Bianna Golodryga has been there for nearly a week [and not on her own dime, I'm sure], and she will be joined sometime soon by a regular on the weekday edition, Amy Robach. Mr. Williams said Ms. Robach will board a plane bound for London “as soon as Kate goes into the hospital.”

What to name the baby?
