How Big Is Ali’s Barrel?

I have a collection of CNN videos for you tonight. It’s been a week of ups and downs so I’m going to start off with the serious videos first. Beverly Broadman passed away this week- she was one of the original staff members at CNN.


On Issue #1, they discussed the impact of the falling US dollar on tourism abroad. Alessio Vinci talked with a few Americas who were vacationing in Rome and looked at the economic impact this could have on Italy’s tourism industry.


A “staycation” sounds pretty good to me. There are plenty of local places that I could play tourist and not really go very far away from home.

Now for a few lighter moments … and all of these come from American Morning. Have you noticed that American Morning has a new opening logo/ banner? John Roberts has referred to it as “nuclear.”

Although the color of the logo has been getting all of the attention, I found that I like the new music that they are using.

Ali Velshi had a run in with the new logo when it was used as a background while he was giving a report…


Kiran Chetry found a creative way to wrap up a series of stories that Veronica De La Cruz reported on…


Ever wonder how big Ali Velshi’s barrel of oil is? That questioned was answered this week and John Roberts found a smooth way of segueing into Ali’s segment.


And my last video tonight is of Delta-lina, from the Delta Airline’s safety video, wagging her finger at John Roberts.
