I had to take this opportunity to plug MSNBC.

I cant say that they never sensationalize events, but I can say that IMHO, they are beating everyone else hands down.

Since the bombing, they've had every breaking story a few minutes faster, they seem to have guests that have more relavent perspective, etc...

When news breaks, I've been flipping back and forth between them and CNN to view the contrast and have been amazed.

In the Gulf War, CNN was the god of news orgs. Looks like the acquisition by Time Warner has taken its toll and then some.


I think it was the acquisition of Time Warner by AOL that finally did CNN in. <grin>
