If it looks like a tab...

If it looks like a tabbed interface, it should darn well act like a tabbed interface.  OK, I know I am being picky here, and there is even room for interpretation, but this is the top of the home page of the CNN.COM website...

CNN banner tabs

In my opinion, those look like tabs, yet when you click on one, such as American Morning (which I have never clicked on prior to today), you get...

American Morning header

Now, again, it may be just me, by why the heck would you switch interfaces and use that stupid CNN section dropdown instead of something more like this?

Alternate American Morning header

Wouldn't that make more sense?  Wouldn't it be better (more consistent) interface design?  I mean, just because I'm looking at American Morning right now, doesn't mean you should make it harder for me to find Paula Zahn Now later, right?  I'm just asking.
