All Things Must Come to an End

We've tried our best to give CNN a chance to recapture our attention but we've finally come to the realization that they have chosen a direction for the network that we simply aren't interested in documenting.  So for now, and the foreseeable future, we are no longer going to be updating All Things CNN or publishing comments to this blog. The archives will remain accessible and our email account will remain active if anyone is interested in acquiring this blog. 
In the words of Ted Turner 'There's no point in sittin' around and cryin' about spilt milk. Gotta move on.'
