In Topic: Becky Anderson

I didn't think it was possible but Becky has added another tick to her repertoire! She asks a question, then while the other person responds (in this case Oren Liebermann), she keeps on uttering (saying? mumbling?) "Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm". Must be very off-putting for the interviewee. I've noticed this when she interviews from the studio and interviews via link but person to person, it must be irritating.

In Topic: CNN Criticism

Macron has named his parliament, the UK has an election coming, one of the Chibok girls has escaped boko haram, Ireland's Prime Minister has stepped down (small time, but newsworthy) and none of this is covered on CNNI.

Special counsels, Russia and Trump, FBI, Breaking News.... But nothing International.

 

Switched on this morning for CNN Newsroom and even Isha Sesay was banging on about Comey and Trump for the hour.

 

Where do I get International News? I've said it before, I'll say it again. As a non-American, I care more about the hair on a hamster's tiny testicle than I do about the FBI or who leads it.

Republican this, Democrat that, Nancy Pelosi gets a town hall, now a debate between Bernie and Kasich. Good Lord!! There is a whole world beyond American borders folks. Let's hear about it!
