However, overall, CNNI is one of the best news channels out there and provides more world news than what we US residents are supposed to be happy with. CNNUS and Fox News are on the same page now; they've sunk so low that they're in nothing but a ratings battle. Forget Headline News. Once one of the better news channels in the United States, they've become nothing but a tabloid channel now with blockheads Glenn Beck and Nancy Grace, as well as non-news shows like Showbiz Tonight and that new one they just launched that looks like it was produced by VH1.

My answer is: I don't know. Sorry!
With this economy. I'm paying food
and fuel with my Cable TV money.
But I still love CNN.
Even though this contest is:
Yes Purchase Necessary.

Later in the Q&A, Klein talked about the strategy to focus on hard news. "It takes a while to line your troops up behind that because, keep in mind, that's a new habit for folks, you know, who had been used to covering stories in a certain way," he said. "But four years later, we owned television election coverage."
Hard news a new habit? Maybe for you - but CNN before a certain regime was actually hard news. Yes, you did election coverage - but all smoke and mirror entertainment (can we say hologram?). Even one of your pundits was watching something else on his monitor. And now with no overblown election coverage - who's on fourth?

CNN may return to hard news one day but I'm not expecting it to happen while the network is under his control.

People that crave news like they crave a playboy mag or Disneyworld are funny. So what - CNN shows some re-runs, maybe it's so people watching late at night can see what they missed, there's plenty of other fuzzy news out there that cares more about ratings then accuracy; CNN always keeps it 100% legit, sexy, diverse, young and cutting edge.

By the way, they should use swine flu's initials of SIV to really scare people.

They have a "CNN Entertainment Unit" with "a need to take the next step in the coordination of entertainment newsgathering and production efforts."
Soooo much more important than say, a SCIENCE UNIT?

I was up late this morning and watching Anderson Cooper. I noticed they were still using "Swine Flu" on CNN US. CNNI changed to addressing the flu by its scientific name "H1N1" last week.
Cause us Americans are too stupid to look up what H1N1 means.

Of the three cable news channels, Fox News covered most extensively this morning's remembrances of the 65th anniversary of D-Day, anchored by Chris Wallace. FNC aired, uninterrupted, the speeches from the heads of state of France, Canada, Great Britain and the U.S. FNC's was also the only network in HD. Fox News pushed it's "Cost of Freedom" business block to 11amET in order to carry the D-Day events live.
MSNBC carried the speeches but with commercials and among their on-set guests was Winston S. Churchill, grandson of Winston Churchill. CNN stayed with the taped program "Your Bottom Line", telling viewers it would carry Pres. Obama's speech at 10amET. As it turns out, Obama began early at 9:54am and CNN missed the beginning of his speech
Really pathetic effort from "the world's news leader". The interns must be in charge of the network this weekend. Anytime Fox News trumps you with coverage, you know you've done a pathetic job!
