What does piss me off is CNN has a Brit (Michael "Dead Air" Holmes) handling late night anchoring. He was terrible way before this crisis, has no context for reporting on US news, and is pretty befuddled/bewildered by the goings on..... almost ANY US person would be better able to handle the role .... hell, throw a bunch of money at Soledad OBrien even. (You also frequently get another Brit, whose name I don't recall, interviewing yet another Brit, for insights.) I actually turn to Fox for at least footage.

(Michael, US viewers all know that Houston is in the State of Texas, etc. even if you feel a need to "explain" things like that. )

Thanks for the reminder. During the Oct 1 Shootings, only Twitter provided current reliable information. The regular media was not nimble enough to cover a live, breaking , moving news story.

I had forgotten that lesson.

He's actually Australian, not British, and I believe that is a CNN International show aimed at Asian-Pacific markets that is simulcast on the domestic version of CNN.

That is inexcusable. The US does not merit its own 24 hour coverage for this market ? The result is a half-assed late night product.

(I know there are International editions, I get both the US and an International version on cable in Costa Rica. Those two however are always showing different content. )

Thanks for sharing.

You may prefer heavily edited and delayed local or national news coverage versus pretty much unedited, live Twitter coverage from the scene of developing stories, so, good for you.

My experience had been different that yours.

They should be at Carson City then. The only person that can change it is there.

Re: Coronavirus & Vegas

So they haven't started destroying the casinos yet? I guess they don't care THAT much about George Floyd in Las Vegas.
