Thanks so much for posting the video's of Kimberly. I've read her book and it is amazing. I highly recommend it to all. It is difficult to read in places, but well worth it; truly insightfuland inspirational.

She is such an incredible woman and a consummate professional. Thankfully she has made a full recovery. I wish her continued success for the future.

I can't help but feel that 360's ratings will change after the election in November.

Anderson's ratings will be fine after
the election he has been doing well
for quite some time now. My concern
is Campbell Brown. I am starting to
wonder if she is losing CNN's audience.

MSNBC is getting HLN's viewers. They really
need to fix HLN and put some news on the
network. Prime News is just awful these days.

Anon 10:09 AM Campbell Brown never had a CNN audience.

Someone has got to tell Geri Willis that when she speaks about foreclosures and debt, she should not be so perky. I find her absolutely annoying. If her finances were in the red, would she address it with a smile on her face?

I think Campbell Brown needs someone like
TJ Holmes to anchor the news brief during
the program. Let's face it the program needs
some help. She needs some other CNN talent
to help liven up the hour. Partisan panels are
so yesterday's news.
