Finally, CNN got it's act together. Bin Laden
has be captured and killed. For some time
when it was apparent that a huge national
security matter was rising CNN was wasting
time on Donald Trump. That circus needs to
end as of tonight. CNN should not have even
done anything on Donald Trump knowing
that President Obama would have a late
night statement from the White House.CNN
needs to make sure nothing like this happens
again. How is that the silliness of Donald
Trump took precedence over the death
of Bin Laden ?

It's interesting that Bin Laden goes down 10 years after 9/11.

After Obama/Seth Myers ripped Trump apart, NO ONE should be talking to him and especially not now when far more serious matters are afoot.

CNN really needs to knock it off with the
Obama is weak junk. Same thing goes for
the people saying he does not love the
United States. Obama knows what he is
doing and this just shows he is capable of
handling several matters at once. Don't
ever put Obama and Trump on the same
level. The President is out of Trump's
league and CNN needs to respect that.

Please be fair to Wolf Blitzer & John King.
They were the best tonight. I agree it was
a mistake for CNN to put Donald Trump
in the newscast. Did CNN not get that
this was serious for the first 15 mins.
CNN just misses the boat all of the time
with President Obama.

I am not surprised at this press release and 4 million viewers is highly exaggerated.
The cablers shared approximately 2.5 million viewers in total.
CNN probably also beat FOX NEWS tonite in the Bid Laden death report. Wolf was on, along with John King and Ed Henry...their top brass.
Fox News had Geraldo Rivera. Nothing else need be said.

1:22am You might not like Anderson Cooper but he should have covered the story from NY. I don't understand why everyone covering the story was in DC.
