CNN


I’d be remiss in my duties as a blogger if I didn’t mention the recent gaff at CNN. While president Bush was speaking about the anniversary of Katrina, CNN’s Kyra Phillips went for a bathroom break. Somehow her mic got switched back on and you hear her talking over Bush about her husband and brother. “He’s married, three kids, and his wife is just a control freak,” she was heard saying. CNN has since issued an apology.

CNN has announced that they will create a new section on their site dedicated to citizen reporting. Check it out…cnn.com/exchange. This is a step in the right direction and CNN is one of many networks beginning to try out the idea of allowing citizens to provide their thought, opinions, photos and video on a topic they (as B&C pointed out) are the only to do it with such a great site. ABC News Now has a new show that is very similar.
