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
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.
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.
