CNN Report: We Suck

A front-page story on CNN.Com today derides cable news networks for dumping serious news coverage in favor of talk and fluff, reserving special criticism for CNN:

The notion that people can work late, skip the broadcast evening news and catch up later on cable isn't necessarily true. Try to find a serious newscast on these networks in prime time, at least before Aaron Brown on CNN at 10 p.m. Eastern time, and you'll be out of luck.

Even CNN Headline News -- a dependable network that rotates newscasts every half-hour -- plans to experiment with prime-time talk shows in the next year.

The story, written by Associated Press TV reporter David Bauder, also shows up on MSNBC, another network criticized in the piece.
