If any of you have seen CNN International i think that is the best news channel at the moment, the whole format and graphics beats Sky News(although i prefer sky news to bbc news24) and it has the best presenters although i do like Anjali Rao....shame she moved to hong kong to CNN but she is very good

Hi, Bruce.

I have never seen CNNI, and I would like to. One of my favourite male anchors works there. Actually two do. Adrian and Richard. I think that their really good looking. Maybe one day the channel will come to Canada. I hope it's soon.

CNN is an objective news agency. They present both sides of the story. ____________________

CNN dropped Reuters last week, and already maybe regretting it: ... 9/10/busin ... 10cnn.html

Outside of a newsroom, a half-hour delay in obtaining video may seem like a minor inconvenience at best. But to television news executives, the lag in catching up to the competition can be a challenge.

That was the predicament CNN faced just after 3:15 p.m. on Friday, as a grainy 75-second tape of Osama bin Laden?s latest message began running in a seemingly endless loop on the cable news network?s chief rivals, Fox News Channel and MSNBC.

Reuters had obtained a video excerpt and distributed it to clients. Unfortunately for CNN, the channel had ended its 27-year relationship with Reuters just seven days earlier.

A CNN correspondent did obtain a transcript of bin Laden?s message and used archival footage to report on it. But television relies on fresh visuals; without them, CNN, which is owned by Time Warner, continued its regular news coverage while Fox News Channel and MSNBC covered the bin Laden tape as breaking news.

Hmm, interesting, though I can't imagine a 75 sec video loop, which BTW is seldom played fully and translated complete on any western based news channel, is a major blow to the channel.

Then again, the yanks probably rely more on visuals then anyone else, so......
