Watching CNN is like watching a Hollywood movie. In order to get people to watch, they sensationalize the news. People are not running around in space suits and with gas masks. Everyone here is going on with their normal activities.

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.
