20/20 aired an expose on the dangers of cell phones tonight on the same day that a federal appeals court reduced the Food Lion judgement against ABC to a $2 fine.

Whether there is a significant health risk is one question, but whether there is a signficant investor risk is another. If you watched it, what is your read? Nokia seemed to take toughest hit when 20/20 presented their own test results on specific models. They had a German lab test 2 Nokia models, 2 Motorola models, & one Ericsson.

My own opinion is that the public has been put through the expose drill enough times now that they are somewhat immune to the effects of such sensational story crafting. I guess we will find out soon enough when markets open.
