So CNN earns itself the title of "news-lite..."

now, who tunes in to "news-lite" once a serious story rolls back around, like the invasion of Iraq or airliners flying into the twin towers?

Everyone will scramble to get on top of the next huge story, but it won't be "news-lite" to which they'll turn when a months-long, all important story next hits.

THAT is the stupid risk CNN is taking... they'll be buried when people once again need REAL NEWS from a real news source.

Of course, not too many cable news channels are much better, but at least those at the TOP of the dung heap can occasionally gasp a breath of fresh air.
