    Partisanship sells.

    No one wants "straight news" anymore. I've said it forever. If CNN tries to stay the course with their "straight news" format, they will wind up playing a distant 3rd fiddle.

    Murdoch is a genius. You may disagree with him, but he saw a market for what he was selling and went for the jugular. In doing so, he has created a market for his foil. MSNBC.

    CNN is "straight news"? Are you serious? They can't get through one broadcast without hysterics. Walter Cronkite must be rolling over in his grave.
