Is this really National News?

Seriously,

Is a Starbuck’s price increase really National News.  I pull up CNN.com and one of the main stories on the front page is Starbuck’s price increase.

    The corner deli on 50th and 8th avenue has countered Starbuck’s aggressive strategy by increasing a large coffee to .80, enciting outrage among the general populace of Gotham.

    Also, if you look at Starbuck’s share price since last November, you’ll see why they are raising prices…

    This press release was written in the same manner as one for a postage rate increase. And many would argue that their daily extra-hot soy latte is just as important as regular mail service, if not more so.

    I cna understand a price increase but to make natinnal news on a price increase for one particular company? That is called a free commercial.

    I would have thought CNN would have reported on a more imprtant story pertaining to food such as the recall on Chilli becasue of Botulism
