CNN's excellent news coverage

This morning I made some obnoxious crack about CNN preëmpting election coverage because a white woman had gone missing. Then what happens? Someone who happens to be watching CNN at that moment tells me that is reporting on a missing white woman. I certainly don't wish this missing white woman ill—I mean, my mother was a white woman—but man, aren't there more important things to focus on? Like the Iowa caucus results? Pakistan? China? Surely something is going on out there that a citizen would want to keep him or herself informed about. Not to hear CNN tell it, though. Nowadays the most serious thing on that channel is James Earl Jones' voiceover.

If you want to keep in step with the world, you might do better to keep your TV tuned to a different channel. Try Nickelodeon.
