Change in the News

I was home feeling under the weather today and noticed CNN has a new format of news.........is this a temporary thing............I can't keep track of who is on when or if not. I think Anderson Cooper is still there but I haven't seen much of him lately after the hurricane blew in. Are more changes to come?

CNN has changed A TON since they've gotten a new exec producer...and I'm not fond of many of the changes.

no more bill hemmer
no more capital gang
no more crossfire
no more judy woodruff

That makes two of us....at times I have to double check to see if I have the right station on. Seems there is very little discussion any more and whatever there is all appears so pre-rehearsed.

Well times change...at least their web-site is still good. They always seem to have U2 related items quite often.

CNN is going down the toilet of tabloidization

I miss Bill Hemmer too, and I missed his last show

It's stupid to scrap the opinion shows. Even though I'm not a big fan of pundits in general some of them are pretty damn good--Tucker Carlson and James Carville, to name two.

Funny. The head of CNN's reasoning behind scrapping these opinion shows was that he was aiming to get back to credible, hard news, rather than stooping to the same hysterical antics of FOX News.

If it fails, he'll lose his job and I'm sure a new batch of hysterical antics will come back.

They'd better not get rid of Anderson.

Just realized I typed "you're" in that post when the correct word is "your". Grrrrrr.... now I have to rap my own knuckles five times for improper word usage.
