    CNN fired it's President Jon Klein and will begin "restructuring" it's lineup in hopes of bring in (and bringing back) viewers.

    What can CNN do to make you watch them again? What hosts could they bring in to get you to tune in? Who should they throw out? Lou Dobbs used to be CNNs' top ratings getter but he got canned (of course). My picks:

    1. Lou Dobbs
    2. Tammy Bruce
    3. Michael Savage

    Discuss.

    Work to lose the image many people hold of them as being nothing more than another left wing propaganda machine.

    They could start calling themselves fair and balanced while presenting an entirely biased platform with a token opposition viewpoint, while shamelessly donating big bucks the political movements just so they could make news about them. They could become Fox News.:lol:

    Tell the truth. Fire all the screamers/talking heads. Stop wringing hands over their favorite "causes" and just cover the fucking news.

    savage would not last 2 segments...

    anyway, I don't watch news for personalities. The issue I see it with all of them is, they each cover and don't cover what their subjective political slants tell them to or not. Fox covers things CNN doesn't, and vice versa. And of course when they each cover the same issue well, theres dueling delivery slants.

    strictly speaking for commentary etc. I like tammy bruce, lou dobss is okay, never watched him much, bernie goldberg is very good,....

    I think there's a market for a real news show (mebbe not a 24 channel, but they could do up historical pieces or investigative reports, etc.). I think people are fed up running from pillar to post to get "the whole story".

    99% less fluff and bullshit and a whole lot more hard news.

    BINGO!

    I don't care about Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or any other so-called celebrity. There are all kinds of things happening all over the world that we NEVER hear about unless you really work hard to get international news. So many Americans are completely ignorant of the rest of the world, except a very limited and skewed glimpse provided in a 2 minute spot on the news now & then when there isn't enough salacious gossip to spew in the guise of "news". Perhaps if we had a better understanding of the world and our place in it, we could make form more educated and realistic opinions about public policy - foreign and domestic.
