With a major speaking role for Al Gore, I'm sure. No doubt Bush will be blamed for all pollution since the industrial revolution.

+1 You know that's a given since it's a CNN production. More climate change clap trap.

A week or so ago while at a restaurant, I saw CNN carrying a "breaking news!!!" report for about an hour. A lady (they didn't say she was a dangerous felon) was leading police on a low-speed chase down a highway somewhere out west. Nothing but aerial shots of this car driving down the road for an hour.

And their low ratings speak for themselves...

Yeah, wasn't it a low speed chase on the FL Turnpike? How does one get off there without paying the toll. ;-)

Yeah, all we need is to see Begala, Carville, etc. arguing at each other in HD.

I am wondering the same thing. They are adding 7 channels in August 15 and mentioned that more to come in September. Hopefully CNN Hd will be one of them.
