CNN needs to fix LKL quick. Rachel Maddow
has a great show. Mind over chatter is a great
idea. The radio talk show hosts on LKL is getting
old. I wish CNN would become a lot more interactive
in the 3 hours of prime time. The twitter idea is
great but expand it e-mails phone calls and I-report
CNN is ahead of the game in this arena. Rick
Sanchez and Don Lemon are good at this, Hey
maybe when Campbell really gets her own show
outside of politics CNN and do this with her program.
i concerned that MBNBC is gaining on CNN with
Hardball up against Dobbs. CNN really needs to
add more content. I hope Campbell's program is
the most jam-packed news session for the hour
mix in the music and news hits during Campbell
and Larry. CNN has to be different to change the
game by using all of it's resources including
CNN I. I would really like to see CNN go with
a viewers choice newscast with news chosen by
viewers. Of course legitimate news from newspapers and the web that they want to see.
I hope the Rick Sanchez program is the beginning
of the revolution in TV news. CNN needs to try
and put the comments on the screen with the
anchor like Current TV does with hack the debate
it is really cool stuff. I just have to believe that
CNN is the most tech savvy news channel hands
down, I think it might help them with viewers
in some hours when they might be in danger
of loosing.
