CNN is a national joke. Former first lady
Betty Ford has died. Right not MSNBC &
FNC has extensive coverage.CNN is airing
the Beyonce interview again. CNN is not
serious anymore and never will be again.

A 10 Isha Sesay did a live segment with Larry
King and Doug Brinkley.It is inexcusable for
CNN to be on tape for 3 hours in prime time
on Friday. So I guess Beyonce is the star of
CNN and is breaking news. That makes MSNBC
the only one live for 2 hours on Friday. CNN
seems to not have a plan for breaking news.

I loved Isha Sesay's delivery style in anchoring
the news. She's good. Great to see Josh Levs
back on CNN this weekend. I love all of the
weekend talent on CNN. They seem to be
having so much fun. The segments with Fred
& the Fandango critic have me laughing so
hard. You never know what she will say.
