Golf Coverage For The Birds

Nursing the latest blow to its credibility, CBS has quit broadcasting tapes of chirping birds in the background of its golf coverage after bird lovers complained that the birds never ventured into the areas of the country where some of the telecasts originated, the Washington Post reported today (Friday).

A network spokeswoman told the newspaper that from now on, CBS will use only natural sounds of birds or none at all.
