But wait! They're showing the news...

CNN is apparently starting to air an international news show called "Your World Today." Folks at the Columbia Journalism Review report the shock they felt when they first tuned in, at discovering long stretches of in-depth reporting and analysis. Interviewers even put their guests on the spot about national policies.
We applaud all this, and have only one question for Jonathan Klein, the mastermind behind it: Why has it taken this long? Did CNN all along think that American viewers, besotted on tales of runaway brides and Court TV, couldn't handle informed discussion concerning matters in Sudan, Syria, and North Korea?
on TV!Only the Shadow knows.
