#1 SO, is the bottom line that the Public doesn't buy their stuff anymore? Or in other words, their news has little sense to common ordinary people and they don't listen or pay good money for what CNN has to sell?
Traditional Leave it to Beaver news just doesn't have much appeal?
Well there you go.
Maybe they should hand out pictures of Obama gazing at the Moon or Coupons for Obama's next book...about Obama.
That might work.
maybe the Beaver should ask Wally.

#2 When the numbers don't add up, make more epicycles to define your universe.
Or try the strategy that brought us New Coke, another brilliant idea out of Atlanta.

#3 The panelists seem to be the only ones worrying about CNN's fate. A novel idea might be to report the news and scrap the ideology that currently goes with CNN reporting and other MSM cable networks that aren't doing well. The big wigs should try to be honest and ask themselves: "Why aren't we doing well?"

#4 CNN has the ability to be the only real news agency. If the panel is worried about them and concider FOX and MSNBC real news, then I see this as a good sign. CNN got slammed in the early 80's for being 24 hours a day. Now they are too traditional? If CNN pulls of being news without the wild bias I will become a fan.

#7 I don't watch CNN at airports. They are Pravda without the prava. I use my wifi and read the Burg.
