I'm actually serious about this. Discuss.

1. I seriously feel they have
but only since Katrina and only since they noticed that this administration DOESN'T GIVE A FIG.

2. No
The changes have been patchy and cosmetic at best. I think because Bush is finally down below 40% in approval, the news for the rest of us has a nice sheen on it... plus, the coverage of Katrina had a few rare and good moments.

But! Over all, CNN is stil a very right-wing (Fox Lite or MSNBC Jr.) network, and has been since the Reagan era.

3. They did a good job with Katrina
CNN did a good job with Katrina. However, it pisses me off that they have replaced many parts of Headline news with 30 minutes of Showbiz gossip. Ever since Time-Warner-AOL-People bought CNN, too much of CNN has seemed to be run by flunkies from the People magazine division.

4. Maybe, but they have a long way to go before they're credible. (nt)
