Who is in charge of CNN ? They need to be fired.

I'm currently watching 360. They had a segment on video game violence. I happen to be a gamer. Mortal
Kombat is martial arts game. There are no guns. Yes
there is a fatality function that is bloody but there are
settings to not let the game be bloody. You can also
turn them into a baby, making them cry like a baby.
Most gamers don't own guns. World of War Craft
means a whole lot more than violence. Same thing
with Halo.

Everyone at CNN needs to be fired.
They came in fourth in cable according to TVN, even with Kathy Griffins's crotch antics.
Oh My!
Well, at least they proudly won that night.

Looking forward to CNN changes under Jeff Zucker ASAP! New on screen graphics with capitalized letters, no flipper, and less wording. New programming and hopefully keeping CNN the way it should be. News, NOT views. If I want opinionated news, I will watch The View. I hope to see Soledad O'Brien in prime time. It would be nice to have Christiane Amanpour in prime time as well. I'd love Newsroom International to expand to 2 hours and have it hosted by Hala Gorani and Michael Holmes. I hope all CNN dayside programming will revert back to 2 anchors rather than solo. I'm not too fond of the idea of having Erin Burnett in the morning. Hope she would just leave CNN. Zoraida Sambolin is beyond a snooze. They should have kept Ashleigh Banfield alongside John Berman. Both are fun, smart, and amusing. I see them as an ideal morning team.

Erin Burnett has some serious fact issues. She totally
misrepresented Obama's Afghanistan policy. Has she
not listened to speeches on his Afghan plans. This
was expected. She is clueless about news an it shows. She implied that Obama was being controlled
by the Afghan president. Cenk is righ. The _______
Erin says. You can watch the reports form CBS,
ABC, NBC, BBC , PBS and see that she got it all
wrong. CNN relies on these conspiracy theorists
for news everyday.

CNN , Obama won the election and will entering a 2nd terms. Americans voted against craziness. CNN
is so upset that Mitt Romeny lost that they try to
make it seem like the Obama re-election never
happened. CNN Mitt Romney and the tea party
lost. Face reality and stop advancing a right wing
media agenda by giving them a platform.

Isn't Jeff Zucker the man who ruined NBC Network.
How can he fix CNN ? That happened 3 years ago.
2 executives that never should run a network again
are Jeff Zucker and Jim Walton. Major networks saw
there total collapse under their leadership. Sure CNN
is a huge company and there are very few who could
understand how a company this massive work but
there had to be better choices. CNN dayside is all
but turning into HLN. Crime, crime and more crime.

I would definitely like to see CNN go back to the two anchor format. The anchors in Atlanta are all so boring they need help.

If Anderson really felt stongly about what happened to these families he'd speak out about gun control and not 'play' with these people and their feelings.
I'm really tired of Anderson 'using' all types of horrific events to promote himself.
If he was truly, truly sorry for what happened he'd speak out for the cause and the solution.
No, you can't stop natural disasters, but you can use your platform, elevate the discussion, and seek a solution.
Just sick of his handwringing and placing himself in every situation.
When was the last time he was in Haiti???
He came to national attention when he spoke out against a public official and we all gave him credit for that, and he never, ever did it again.
And then you say "Oh why and anger?"
It's not anger. It is frustration!
