James Brown once said about himself, “Unless you do puzzles, you cannot hope to understand James Brown.” In James Brown – Say it Loud, CNN anchor Don Lemon will unravel the multiple paradoxes of the man who stopped the riots in Boston following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr; wrote “I’m black and I’m proud;” endorsed Richard Nixon for president; and although deeply pious, was also accused of spousal abuse. ‘The Hardest Working Man in Show Business’ rose from abject poverty to the heights of fame and wealth and was both a man of the people and larger-than-life. Brown’s career and life reflected the culture and politics of the times in which he lived and we shared.

Could changes be right around the corner
at CNN ? I just turned on the tv and Richelle
Carey from HLN is anchoring today. Last
night, Isha Sesay was in NYC. She helped
celebrate Anderson's birthday. I really like
Isha. She is adorable and has helped liven
up 360. I hope this does not mean she is
going to another show out of NYC. Isha
is usually in Atlanta.

CNN is much better on the weekends. The
anchors and the segments are more interesting.
Please don't mess with weekends CNN.Fred
is probably doing some interviews to run on
weekends. Richelle is good.

Richelle is not as likeable as Fredrika.
Let's hope Fred returns next weekend.

TJ, Fredrika, Don & Reynolds are the best.
Maybe they should try Isha on the morning
show.

CNN should be doing more stories like the
Khan Academy . A free and independent news
network should not have political ties. It should
be about the news. CNN turn over your network
to the journalists. No more pundits. What rule
says you need them.

I hope now that there is a vacancy in the
documentaries department that CNN goes
for Laura Ling. She was the brains behind
the groundbreaking documentary series on
Current called Vanguard. She left Current.
Ling likes going all around the world to cover
the stories that CNN and others ignore. Right
now it is still on Current and will be airing
right after Countdown. CNN's documentaries
can be boring at times. You will never find
Vanguard boring. Heck , hire Ling as a vice
president or something. CNN needs to upgrade.

Vanguard is why I'm a huge Kaj Larsen fan.
Vanguard is awesome. Hands down Marianna
Van Zeller is one of the best news reporters
around. Maybe CNN could get her and the rest
of the Vanguard team.CNN has something that
Current does not. It's money . CNN has
fallen behind BBC and some even would say
Al Jazeera as well. CNN could be performing
a valuable service : informing Americans about
the world. This has to be one of the few nations
in which there is an effort to misinform the
masses and we are suppose to be a democracy.
CNN could be bringing us real news. Obviously,
they have chosen not to do so.

I agree, try Isha in the morning.
She's up for it and she can join TJ and Kiran and this could be the best mix.
I think CNN is trying to find a good fit for Ali Velch but so far he fits nowhere.
Fredrika is doing well on weekends and so is Don.
