CNN's Coverage of the Diamond Jubilee

CNN To Provide Global, Multi-Platform Coverage of the Diamond Jubilee
Piers Morgan and Brooke Baldwin Will Host CNN’s Live Coverage

Live from London, CNN will globally televise the spectacular pageantry of the Diamond Jubilee, marking Queen Elizabeth’s 60 year reign of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. CNN’s special live coverage will be anchored by Piers Morgan and Brooke Baldwin, across CNN/U.S. and CNN International. Users can also watch the simulcast live online at or on the CNN App for iPad and iPhone by authenticating through their cable, satellite or telco provider.
CNN’s live simulcast coverage begins on Sunday, June 3, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. (ET) on location at the Tower Bridge for the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. Hundreds of boats will sail up the River Thames, making it one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river.

On Tuesday, June 5, from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. (ET), CNN will broadcast the Royal Carriage Procession. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry of Wales will depart the Palace of Westminster for Buckingham Palace, travelling along a processional route by horse-drawn carriage. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and members of the Royal Family will appear on Buckingham Palace’s balcony, at which point the Royal Air Force will fly over the palace and the Queen’s Royal Guard will deliver a celebratory cascade of rifle fire as a salute.
Additionally, CNN International will feature live programming from location with Becky Anderson, Richard Quest, Zain Verjee and CNN’s Royal Correspondent Max Foster. CNN en Español will provide coverage on Mirador Mundial, which broadcasts Saturday and Sunday at 6 p.m. (ET).
Leading up to CNN’s live Diamond Jubilee coverage, the network will broadcast four documentaries:
• Kate and Wills: First Anniversary – William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have celebrated one year of married life. On their first official trip abroad as a couple to Canada and the United States last year, she showed she has the same ability to draw the crowds. But it is not just about wearing cowboy hats or mingling with Hollywood A-listers, a 21st century Duchess needs to be clear about who she is and what she cares about. This half-hour program examines how Catherine passed her Royal apprenticeship with success. Kate and Wills: First Anniversary will air on CNN Saturday, May 26 at 2:30 p.m. ET and replay Sunday, June 3 at 8 p.m. (ET).
• The Diamond Queen – Long before Diana and Catherine, there was Elizabeth. This is the story of the young, fresh-faced and glamorous Queen of the 1950s and how she became the great matriarch. As she began a life of duty and service, she was also the ruler of the most revered monarchy in the world and helped build the new Commonwealth with a constituency of 2 billion people. In her Diamond Jubilee year, the Queen is still working and heading up a household which is enjoying an upsurge in popularity. The Diamond Queen will air on CNN Saturday, June 2 at 2:30 p.m. (ET)
• CNN Presents: The Women Who Would Be Queen – CNN takes a look at the life of Catherine Middleton, the woman who will someday become Queen of the United Kingdom. The hour-long documentary also explores the ways in which the future King and Queen have honored the life and legacy of Diana. Featured in the documentary are Jules Knight, close friend of the couple from the origins of their fairytale romance during their university days at St. Andrews, and Arthur Edwards, longtime royal photographer, who has chronicled the princes' entire lives during his 30-year career at England’s The Sun newspaper. CNN Presents: The Women Who Would be Queen is reported by anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien. The documentary will air on CNN Saturday, June 2 at 8 p.m. (ET)
• Harry: The Fighter Prince – He is the soldier Prince, happiest in combat uniform. In this documentary, Prince Harry reveals to CNN’s Royal Correspondent, Max Foster, “There's something about me, I do enjoy running down a ditch full of mud. It's the way I am. I love it.” With a glint in his eye and a healthy streak of irreverence, the young prince is third in line to the British throne, and has always been one of the lads. As his grandmother celebrates sixty years on the throne, Prince Harry has been given duties away from the battlefield. He was sent on a Royal tour of the Caribbean – a trip which senior members at Buckingham Palace judged as a great success. Harry: The Fighter Prince will air on CNN on Sunday, June 3 at 8:30 p.m. (ET).

Finally, an event where Piers Morgan might come in handy. Suppose he is gonna hack some phones of some "Hollywood A-listers" hobnobbing in London so CNN can get the scoop? Bwwaahahahaha...

Hey, you guys forgot to say Happy Birthday to
CNN. It's June 1st. CNN has been around for 32
years CNN launched June 1, 1980.

Wow. June could be a big month for TRMS.
So far this week, Rachel has topped Greta in the
demo and is only 35,000 shy of Sean Hannity.
June 2012 could possibly the worst month for
FNC in years. Sean and Greta are taking big hits.
FNC has not been challenged at 9 PM in the demo
in more than a decade. BOR will take a big hit as
well. His show has only 489,000 so far this week.
FNC is averaging 375,000 in PT demo. MSNBC is
averaging 247,000. Nothing to report on CNN
but this could be one of the worst month for
FNC for quite some time. Granted it is only 3
days. Tonight's ratings should be interesting.
Take a look at TVN.

That's because Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart
are the only 2 really paying attention to what is
coming out of the mouth of Mitt Romney. Now
even Mediaite is saying the media is not noticing
that Mitt Romney has lost his mind. The media
has collectively lost it's mind as well. Rachel is
calling out the media for not doing it's job.No
reporting on the antics of Mitt Romeny or his
lies. The FNC ratings this week are surprising.
Rachel Maddow deserves those ratings. Good
for her. It is about time for the smartest show
on cable news to rise in the ratings.

Thank goodness CNN didn't ask Anderson Cooper to cover this event.
Maybe, just maybe, they are getting away from giving him soooo much recognition that, the network is oblivious to others who just might be able to handle the same event and get the same exact ratings or better.
Not that Brook Baldwin and Piers Moron are the sharpest pencils in the pack, but they too, can read a teleprompter.

CNN just does the weakest, ineffectual critiques of Mitt Romney that they can get away with, somehow they always manage to determine that whatever Mitt did wrong, President Obama did something worse. CNN along with much of the media is all about letting Romney's lies and frequent gaffes slide by without a mention. Do they really have to be so blatant in their favoritism? The Mediaite report about Romney's mental state was an eye-opener, but all we get from CNN is how Romney is going to wipe the floor with President Obama in November, perhaps if they did their jobs as a news network, the nation would see how dangerous and damaging a Mitt Romney White House would be. It's disgusting to watch the news and not really feel that you are being told the truth or getting the info you really need to know that will affect the future of this country for generations. CNN is superficial and facile.
