About 2 hours ago, D* dropped CNN's HLN (204) and added Al Gore's Current (358).

I will be the first to say there was less and less News on HLN, but they did cover SOME breaking news.

More people will see and ignore Current on NewsMix in a day than view or care about it all year, but really.

Current?!?!?!

wtf!!!!

Come on D*.....Bring back HLN.....At least they had better looking females!!!

Ever since HLN moved away from the 30 minute headline news format to the mess it is today, I have not watched it. I do not watch mix channels, either, except during some sporting events when there are multiple matches at the same time. A news mix seems obsessive. The first network to break a story usually gets it wrong, anyway, because they are in too big of a hurry to get it out to check their facts. Other than a tornado warning, there is nothing on television important enough that I cannot wait an hour to hear.

Come on, Fox News has all the blonde babes. CNN has Candy Crowley , if that is what you prefer.

I want to see TheBlaze Channel, with S.E. Cupp.

Well. All's well that ends well then. Now we just need to get news mix in HD.

Yes, its back of this morning.

WTF was going on overnight?

Things to come?

I had it on for close to an hour - knew I should have captured a photo and post it - but didn't really want to go through the effort :(

I can attest that you are not nuts if that is what you want. I checked it this morning and it had Current on it. So, it was there.

She's on MSNBC a lot now thankfully. Krystal Ball (no joke. That's her name) is even hotter. Also on MSNBC at times.

And make the screens bigger, so much wasted space.

I see Current is back though.

Absolutely. I agree completely. Lack of intelligence is a serious turn off.

I do have to wonder if that is just a media name - most radio jocks use a different name than their real one - or if her beautiful parents with their perfect genes were also whackos.

I once shared a Las Vegas lounge show booth with the Loves. That was their last name. They named their daughter April. April Love. How cute. Definitely whackos.

I wondered that as well but then again she spells it with a K versus a C so I'm guessing its her actual name. Plus your whacko thoery holds alot of weight.
