Meet the new boss
You probably heard that the head of CNN resigned suddenly last week. This depressing interview with the new boss, Ken Jautz, formerly the brains behind Headline News, doesn't inspire much hope that it's going to get any better.
Jautz talked about his biggest challenge -- boosting primetime ratings -- the importance of personalities and how TV news can be serious yet entertaining.He's pinning his hopes on the "new and improved" pundits, Parker & Spitzer and Piers Morgan, who I think was a judge on some talent show, to bring the zing to their coverage. That bell you hear in the distance is the death knell for mainstream news as we once knew it.
