Hey you guys, check out the Wrap. The List is out for TV anchors and many CNN'ers are on the list. It's about most liked and least. Anderson Cooper finished just 1 point behind Scott Pelley for #1 when it comes to likability.

This is the last week for March 2014 ratings.
TV Newser has ratings that show Chicagoland
hurt CNN last night. CNN had fewer viewers
than MSNBC. However, CNN should finish
ahead of MSNBC for this month.

The missing Malaysia jet saved CNN this month. April is just around the corner so we don't know how long viewers with stick with the story. They could chose to tune out until there is new news about the story.

Sunday morning political shows are getting old really fast. Right now CBS Sunday Morning beats all of the political shows soundly. Sunday needs to be a day to give viewers a break from politics all of the time. For goodness sake, they do that too much already,it's not like we are getting much news from CNN.

March 2014 is already on the books. The networks know the ratings already. We will likely find out sometime tomorrow. What happened to the people who would crunch the numbers. They were pretty accurate with the ratings.

Ironically, CNN & AJAM will both be launching new shows on April 13, 2014 at 9 PM. CNN will begin the 3rd season of Parts Unknown while AJAM will start airing Borderland. Pretty sure that Anthony Bourdain will continue to be a hit for CNN. Not sure about Borderland.

The hottest story circulating is Lebron meet Ebony. Thanks to Twitter Ebony Nettles Bey, a high school basketball player battling stage 4 cancer was able to meet Lebron James. It' was simply beautiful. The Miami Heat organization rose to the occasion. She lead the team out on to the court, participated in the shoot around, was hanging out with Dwayne Wade. At the end of the game, Lebron gave her his shoes, jersey and headband. People care more about this story than Chris Christie or any other politician. ESPN was was the only major network to pick up on this story. Where is the humanity on cable news? We never get the stories that have meaning but plenty of ideology, which means nothing. Cable news has become a vast wasteland and not worth watching. Social media can lead to wonderful social action, Cable news can't do this. It choses to divide and spread hate.

This is to the over 65er who felt the need to inform us of the supposedly superior boomers. Here are a few lessons...

"Seniors have money. Some of us were lucky enough to have pensions and earned status the hard way, WORKING in one job for many years."

Do you know how many younger folks would love the stability of a job for life WITH a pension? It is not being offered to us because companies blew it all on seniors. We don't get the job for life because we are often downsized, right-sized, or economized out of a job. Don't get me started on how few offer pensions any more...

" It is NOT, an entitlement, though it is called that by the Republicans AND SOME lazy ignorant Democrats."

Well call me an ignorant Democrat. Put on your reading glasses and get on the Google and look it up. "Entitlement: noun - the fact of having a right to something." Another definition..."a right to benefits specified especially by law or contract" Btw, as a GenXer, I would like to have access to those entitlements in my retirement too so quit sucking it all up for yourself!! So let's talk about Medicare. Today's retirees will consume 3 TIMES MORE medical care than what they paid for. That's right. For every dollar you put in the system, you are taking out 3 dollars in medical care.

"In fact, we possibly are the richest retired generation of people ever before."
And you have the GALL to brag you are the richest generation?!?! After talking about all your pensions, social security, and medicare, WHICH IS NOT BEING MADE AVAILABLE TO THE REST OF US.

And the scariest part of all... "And here's something everyone is afraid of: We will live longer than former generations and WE VOTE....with our pocketbooks."
Now that is something that we agree on. However, I think you may be mistaken about the living longer part. Boomers are the most obese, most dependent on prescription pills, and the least physically active. Fact is, the life expectancy of Americans has been stalling out - mostly because of boomers who don't take care of themselves and then expect us young folks to pick up the tab for it.

So, stick to the talk of CNN and stop the inane lectures on Boomer superiority. As my paychek gets eaten up by SS and Medicare that I won't get, I don't want to hear about entitlements from the person who is spending that money.

Get ready for a series of battles between CNN &
AJAM. Both networks just won some National
Headliner Awards. CNN could use some serious
news competition. CNN better up it's game. Not
sure how long AJAM will remain under the radar
as the win some journalism awards.

TVN says the ratings come out tomorrow. They predict a 2nd place finish for CNN. Already Jeff Zucker is touting CNN Digital numbers. I'm telling you, someone needs to start a 24/7 live streaming news channel that is not a part of television. Make it so you don't have to even subscribe but can just go to and watch at anytime anywhere on multiple devices
Laptops, desktops) people can watch at work, smarphones, tablets. Heck you can even download apps with your smart TV.

I posted two well written replies to someone who accused me of "boomer superiority" and neither one was posted as an answer to this anons comment.
The only reason I posted the 65+
comment was to reply to another post which demeaned the 65 an older crowd.
It would be nice if at least one of my replies to 5:49 accusations
about Boomers in General, was posted.
This person made many generalities about a large group of people that was absolutely untrue, and I should be given the opportunity to "set the record straight."
