CNN is a super place to get your news if you need wall-to-wall coverage every time a random twentysomething celeb is getting arrested for DUI or a weather disaster strikes a trailer park -- or if you like breezy five-second analyses of important issues that might actually impact your life. Oh, and if you like annoying sound effects while John King plays with touchscreen election maps.
So it's ... what's the opposite of super? ... not super to hear that CBS News is considering outsourcing some of its news gathering operation to CNN. It's like hearing that Tony Bennett is considering outsourcing some of his singing to Michael Bolton. Yes, Tony's been around for a while, and he's not as mainstream as he was back when, but the result would be so disheartening.
Sounds like some people need to watch Good Night, and Good Luck for a little inspiration.
There's a difference between TV journalism and TV coverage. Let's hope CBS keeps its business in house.
