CNN Abandoning its' Audience?

CNN President Jonathan Klein has a novel idea to compete with Fox News...............give us news that will actually keep us awake!

From MSNBC.com:

"These are only the first steps in a broad overhaul plan aimed at getting the pioneering and once dominant cable news network out of a seemingly perennial second-place finish, far behind Fox News. His unorthodox, even heretical game plan: serious news that doesn't put viewers to sleep."

Here's the article:

Now, here is the question.......will MSNBC then move to fill the vacuum if CNN actually starts reporting facts?

Can we depend on MSNBC to provide coverage of our soldiers targeting/murdering journalists?

What will we do........
what WILL we do?

I have always believed that members of the Fourth Estate should be placed in a barrel and launched into space. That said, I have a few more folks that should be selected for some genetic realignment.

DOCTORS:

(A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000

(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%
Statistics courtesy of the U.S.Dept of Health &Human Services

**********************************
Guns:

(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000 (yes that's 80
million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is
1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.001875%
Statistics courtesy of the FBI
So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous
than gun owners.
Remember, guns don't kill people, doctors do.
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE
DOCTOR.
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors
before this gets completely out of hand!!!

Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld statistics on LAWYERS for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical
attention.
