It's bizarre that many cell phone videos from Syria have a higher bitrate than CNN's live reports from an almost perfectly calm and peaceful Beirut, which in no case could be called a remote or out-of-reach location. In fact, pretty much all of these broadband streams are going via broadband satellite anyways, so there shouldn't be excuse for not providing the best (full frame) picture quality from any location (excluding, of course, extreme security conditions on locations such as Misrata in Libya).
If the BBC (as a much bigger organization whose finances are always closely watched cause it's the tax payers' money) can afford to broadcast live reports via traditional satellite, CNN (as an allegedly profitable division of a huge media corporation) should be able to do the same.

Get news from Al Jazeera: Too many of us get our news from sources that think like us. A 2009 study found that viewers of Al Jazeera English were more open-minded than people who got their news from CNN International and BBC World.

I saw that article a few days ago from the Daily Beast:
It's a somewhat entertaining read. Not all of their ideas are the best, but I think it's not a bad idea to make smartness a New Year's resolution.
