I've been genuinely impressed with CNN's coverage of Obama's Afghanistan troop plan so far tonight, particularly the panel of Amanpour, Ware, Robertson etc. I love the analysis and facts the correspondents are able to serve up. CNN is lucky in the way they really do have some of the best field correspondents. Plenty of experience there.

The length of headlines at the top and bottom of Amanpour was almost the same length (maybe a little longer) as AJE's. I think 2 minutes is a good length for headlines. Much better than the 30 seconds we get which is basically no more useful than the flipper. But as you say, it was nice to see those extra couple of weather hits as Europe froze.

Yes, I agree, that was a good effort for a couple of headline updates. Obviously, that doesn't make up for all their current sins on weekends, but credit where credit is due. If anything, it only shows you how a minor adjustment can be a big improvement.

Kudos to CNN Domestic for their coverage of the attempted terror attack, and especially for having news on weekends.

Agree, great job by Ali Veshi & everyone involved for keep people up-to-date on the latest developments - considering it was Christmas Night & to be away from their families shows CNNI that they need to lift their game.

For what it's worth, Ali Velshi, who was the primary anchor of the coverage, is a Muslim. :D But I do get your point.

I didn't know that. :surprised:

I join in the praise for the coverage, finally CNN uses it's capacity in the right way. Ali mentioned Quest following the story too but I didn't see him join them from London. :no:

Overall it seems CNN, at least CNNUS, has done a very good job

I only turned on today, kinda of surprised it's still breaking news.
Anyway, saw Martin Savidge reporting from Detroit. Now if he's returned that would be a ground for major praise.

TVNewser says that he's just a freelance reporter for breaking news on weekends:

>More, from a tipster: Savidge is working for CNN on a freelance basis, primarily as a weekend correspondent for breaking news. He's been on-call for several weeks, but there had been no need to bring him in until now. He is still doing freelance work for Worldfocus.

I made a little comparison yesterday. On their morning bulletins at 0900cet BBC WN aired the report on MJ's doctor at 8 minutes past the hour while CNN aired it at 23 minutes past the hour. :Yes:
Also on Kristie's hour they had a report on it at around 50 minutes past the hour.

The Belgium train collision happened over 2 hours ago, but CNNI is just starting to work on covering the story a little more now. There were at least 3 breaking news cut ins during World View, which is a change from how the network usually just waits until the top of the hour to report breaking news. So I'm glad they didn't that today.
Let's put the NEWS back into Cable NEWS Network.
less World Sport, more World Report.

Having an international correspondent host a CNN/US program, instead of bringing in another Domestic-based anchor/correspondent to substitute for the regular host is a very refreshing move. Sara Sidner filling in on American Morning for Kiran is not something you see everyday.

CNN/US could really use more appearances by CNNI anchors/correspondents and more international news on a regular basis and not just on breaking news stories. As an example, take American Morning or CNN Newsroom. They could do satellite telecasts with Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, and London. And the recent increase of international news on The Situation Room is a move in the right direction, though it's still too early to tell.

CNNI have been very good in the past couple of weeks with their Falkland Islands coverage - especially QMB/CTW. They picked up on it before it became a 'mainstream' story and have continued to follow it since

For all the criticism of CNN US, all the trivial and sensational stories they cover, and all the good people they have let go, they still have a lot of talent with the right instincts--to cover news of national and global significance:

Wolf Blitzer
Candy Crowly
Kiran Chetry
Ali Velshi
Christine Romans
John King
Brianna Keilar

and especially, David Gergen and Peter Bergen when they are invited on.

(Wish Aaron Brown and Miles O'Brien were still with CNN.)
