What the @#$%, CNN?

So, I couldn't help but notice an ad during World Cup play that Christiane Amanpour, one of the most respected journalists on the planet, has bailed on CNN and joined ABC News. Apparently old news, but....

Don't worry, CNN will be fine. They are pimping their iReporters, one of which is a puppet.

You know, CNN... you used have decent ratings, but not so much these days. Maybe, just maybe... its time for a good, long look in the mirror.

Well, in the puppet's defense, there's very little difference between that puppet and the all of the photogenic "reporters" who usually just regurgitate words from a teleprompter or paraphrase what some producer is saying in their earpiece. At least with the puppet, it's slightly more clear that his thoughts are not his own. Slightly.
