Christine Amanpour. Temporarily insane?
Due to a mistake that had even media analysts shaking their heads, CNN
early this morning interrupted their 24/7 coverage of the death of pop
star Michael Jackson to cover other news.
"We don't know how it happened exactly" said CNN Executive Producer
Meryl Manning. "But it seems that sometime around 8:45 EST this morning
Christine Amanpour slipped into the studio and did a 10 minute segment
on some car bomb in Iraq that killed 100 people."
CNN, known for its in-depth coverage of major news and its ability to
talk about an issue for days on end, apologized to viewers and assured
them that CNN would not be so distracted in the future.
