CNN Today solo again today, seems to be an increasing trend.

Didn't Newsroom HK go the same way? LOL.

Not very nice of Amara and Michael ignoring the lovely Kate Riley at the end of the show on Wednesday. Especially when they're all on camera.

Michael was probably showing Amara his hairy panic pics. :)

CNN must either be running out of money or its a very slow news day as at 4 minutes into the sbow, they're recycling an exact story that was Amanpour a few weeks back about the Mosul dam. No new information here, and they even replayed parts of the two interviews that were on the Amanpour show. I even believe this was an edition that Michael himself hosted in for Christiane.

That's strange, but yes, weekends are very, very slow when it comes to news. Nobody ever organizes press events outside of the work week, so you pretty much have to rely on crime, disasters, and weather for news since little else goes on. I guess the exceptions this week are the Syria cease fire and Iranian elections.

CNNi are not new to replaying old stories, just thought the timing and nature of this one was strange. I also seen that CNN Today only aired for the first hour yesterday, I don't know if it continued in Asia but we got the tinsel town coverage here in EMEA region. Maybe that had something to do with.

I don't know what everyone else thinks, but I'm increasingly finding CNN Today a turn off. I usually try and catch Hala's show a few hours earlier now.

Easily the best newscast on CNNI. Lots of interviews, rolling news, great hosts, chemistry, banter. Everything CNNI had in its glory days.

I want to pick up on something Amara Walker said on the show yesterday about the diversity in Hollywood. She was talking to an Asian guest and she was saying that she looked up to Asian colleagues as she felt she could relate to them more etc... Now, I do not have a problem with this whatsoever, BUT... could you imagine if a white person said that? They would get slaughtered and called racist.

It's like if Micahel said to a white guest, I liked growing up watching white people on TV because I could relate to them more and felt more comfortable around them. He would be branded a racist.

It still seems obvious that people make such a big deal about race, no wonder racism is still a major issue. The polls about the US Election are always discusse about the black v white vote. It's quite sad to see I think.

People in general calls out racism, yet most still makes a deal about race.

I think the reason she would have said that is down to the lack of Asians in the media and definitely not for any other reason.

That's why I said I had no problem with her saying it, but like I said, if a white person had said it, there would have been hell to play.

But there would be no reason for a white person to say it as there is not a lack of white people on TV - you just look up and they are there

Im not saying theres a lack of white people on TV!!! I'm not even disagreeing with what she's saying, but if a white person had said what she had, they would be accused of racism and favoring their own race. Just trying to highlight the double standards when it comes to race arguments.

It would sound racist because white people are already favored by society. Yes, without context, there is a double standard, but keep in mind the history of the U.S. Generally speaking, minorities have faced more barriers when it came to building careers for themselves. With that in mind, who was usually the party oppressing them?

I don't mean to sound bitter because I'm not, but there is a difference. As a minority myself, when you see one of your own race make it to a high position, you can't help but think about what they must have sacrificed to get there. It's the feeling of hope that "if they can do it, so can I."

I agree with AJJ.  And I'm sure Amara had to deal with people who felt that an Asian woman couldn't do the job. Plus, she may have faced resistance from her own family. I doubt many white males .had to deal with these issues.  So you naturally turn to those who've faced these issues for guidance.

To clear up I meant a white person would have no need to say that as they are everywhere in the media.

Amara saying that it's a 'very busy SUNDAY'. They really don't understand it's meant to be for Asia Monday morning do they? The amount of times I have heard CNN Today say that or Good Evening or This Evening.

Probably one of the downfalls of not broadcasting in HK.

They soon dropped the 'Good Morning Asia' intro soon after launch. Shows they don't care.

Only News Stream and Connect The World caters for their regional audience properly.

I think Michael often says 'good day' so it resonates with everyone, does he not?
