I got an e-mail from CNN's Jack Cafferty

His question in the 4-5 hour of "The Situation Room" was something along the lines of "Does congress need a pay raise?"

I jokingly e-mailed in saying "As a 19 year old with aspirations to run for congress I say they can raise it as high as they want."

A few minutes later I got an e-mail from Jack himself saying, in typical Jack Cafferty fashion, "You'll fit right in."

Just thought I'd share that little tidbit with my fellow CNN junkies

Jack Cafferty rocks. He always cracks me up whether I agree with him or not

that's pretty cool.

still doesn't change the fact that cnn is impossible to watch for longer than five minutes at a time.

out of curiousity, do the lot of you have access to the cbc or bbc, and if so, do you watch/listen to it?

BBC allows its biases to show at times, I think that ABC (www.abc.net.au) provides some very good news coverage, their journos may sometimes have soft-left bias but it is hard to detect with their level of professionalism.

No, I don't have access to either. Sometimes PBS shows BBC world news.

I can't pick up any Canadian stations either, much to my chagrin. Alabama is a bit far away from our neighbor to the north. I would love to be able to watch Canadian news. I'm a little bored with "The Situation Room".

Hey...that's great...a live person.

Anytime I e-mail CNN I get one of those generic replies. Of course, I never have much to say as I deal in the future which hasn't even happened yet for them.

CNN's "yule log" yesterday was something else.
