Sometimes I fanticise about how CNN would have covered 9/11 had it happened with the network in its current state with all the current anchors and programming elements. One thing I know for certain is that things would not have been handled as calmly as Aaron Brown covered it, though when I compare them then to how they cover smaller things now, it does seem as if they were much less resourced then than they are now (especially due to their lack of their own cameras and few on the ground journalists).

Anyone want to fanticise along? Here's mine:
Chris Cuomo breaks into Carrol Costello's show with the first reports of what was happening, from the New Day studio.
The likes of Miguel Marquez and John Berman are on the ground as things happen.
Wolf Blitzer takes over from Washington within an hour (what do you expect?) with Chris later provding on the ground coverage of what was.
Barbara Starr is now providing breaking news from outside the Pentagon of events unfolding there.
Alison Kosik, who is at the NYSE for CNNi's World Business Today is providing breaking news from there with Cristine Romans providing analysis of what this means
On The Lead with Jake Tapper, Jake is anchoring from outside the White House with Wolf and Anderson Cooper taking things over from him ubtil midnight.
All CNN's pundits are in studio providing analysis and Christiane Amanpour is providing analysis from London
They take things until midnight from where Don Lemon, on location, and Alison Camerota do a special CNN Tonight with Early Start starting at 3am that morning

Anything to add or remove?

 

 

Thats interesting. I just don't think they would have specially branded shows or hours like CNN Tonight or Early Start. I also don't think we would see so many different faces, especially not the less important regular presenters. It would be Wolf, Anderson and possibly Cuomo or Tapper all the time. You have to remember the shock everyone was in, for both tv and media it looked as if the apocalypse is happening and nothing was certain and certainly not the tv schedule or presenter. It took weeks or even months for any kind of regular programing to return.

 

I guess CNNI would have Maggie on air at the time and after the initial reports they would join domestic and we wouldn't see any CNNI faces for days.

I remember Ralista anchoring then as well and she did a great job.

Wouldn't CNNi ME reporters be on the air discussing those who were behind the report and/or discussing the victims who were from all over the world?

Great coverage of the 'Fall of the Wall'. I just watched an hour long commercial-free broadcast of the 'balloon' wall coming down in Berlin.


No matter where news happens, CNN is there.

CNN's immediate coverage of the death of SA king was great and showed what they can do when CNNI people are allowed to use ALL of their resources. Michael and Amara were heading it from the studio, the immediately got Nic Robertson in London, then John Defterious in Davos and also got Becky up at 4 am in Abu Dhabi. Plus a dozen of guests from the region with insight into SA and their society and royal family.

Agreed that it was great.  It certainly was a topic which the Domestic people have little to no experience.

And US kept on with their stellar lineup - Cooooper and the canned Morgan Spurlock...

Houston, you should move somewhere where CNNi is.  Maybe Saudi Arabia?

Yeah, its regular time. I suppose US mentioned it, but obviously didn't think it was important enough to bump Cooper and a rerun of that Spurlock stuff.
I went back to watching the Aussie Open when I saw it wasn't going to be CNNI, which should have been the obvious move. As Ginnyfan said, they nailed it.

CNNi made the right choice and broke away from the Blizzard to show Obama's speech in India.

Another good move by CNN.  The Auschwitz Liberation 70 ceremony.   Presumably it's being shown on domestic as well as on International.  I hope so.  

 

The elderly survivors placing the candles has nearly brought.  Oh,. one just escaped.

Nearly every promotion on CNNi is fantastic. CNNi is the best at trailers. Bold, emotional and dynamic.

I want to praise the CNNi business and CNNMoney team for making the best business news coverage. The next step should be the spin-off of the CNNi channel called CNNMoney 


"There'll be no frolicking on QUEST MEANS BUSINESS" - Richard Quest to Paul La Monica on Tuesday August 11th.

 

This is CNN - Where the news always comes first.

Today, after 30 minutes with Wolf covering police looking for someone who had been shooting an officer in the U.S., the simulcast ended, and CNNI took over with breaking news from Lebanon. We also have a big refugee crizis in the middle of Europe. So believe it or not: There were some Breaking news other places in the world, as important as these police men trying to find someone with a gun. A good decision. Should have been taken more often.

I like what they did at the Democratic Pary presidential debate, with CNNI having its own covegate before and after. Much better and relevant for international viewers than the Republican debate coverage.

Brooke Baldwin is doing a very good job while anchoring tonight's major breaking news story. I'm happy that we're not seeing too much of Richard Quest (who I love by the way). Good to know that this hasn't being skewed towards an American perspective [yet].

When CNNi is providing their own coverage of the Paris attacks, as usual they cover it extremely well, as always with big news stories.

Thought CNNi did a good job balancing the two major issues of the day  -- London bombing and US Healthcare.  Trump & GOP losing akin to UK's vote for Brexit and Cameron resigning.
