<p>Despite now knowing that the Amtrak train that derailed outside of Philadelphia on Tuesday night was going more than double the speed limit, the &ldquo;big three&rdquo; networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued pushing the need for more infrastructure funding and an increase in Amtrak&rsquo;s budget on their Wednesday evening newscasts.&nbsp;</p>

<p>On the <em>CBS Evening News</em>, anchor Scott Pelley parroted the point that <strong>&ldquo;[s]ome of Amtrak&#39;s equipment has been charitably described as &lsquo;antique,&rsquo;&rdquo; </strong>before going on fret that <strong>&ldquo;a House panel today cut Amtrak&rsquo;s budget even more.&rdquo;</strong></p>
