    Not interested. That was dumb CNN. You're going to bring less traffic to your site. Does this have something to do with last week when the Ticker page crashed? Are you guys coming under cyber attack?

    "... best political blog in the world"? Did you take a poll, CNN? Frankly, its mediocre at best. Take a look at what you consider to "political" before you start declaring yourself the best. Stories about the debacles in the personal lives of the supposed political-elites are not worthy of being on "The Ticker" (ie, Sandford is really only politically relevant when it comes to his actions as governor - the divorce is not relevant at all). Likewise, the soap operas of the Edwards, the Palins, etc. are not "political" anymore (if ever).

    Also, you really need to drop the "best political team on television" from the CNN vocabulary. They too are mediocre at best.

  10. Ehh...

    Well, either online format is so much better than the TV coverage. I had to watch CNN for the healthcare summit cos I don't get C-Span3, and YUK!! Best political team my a$# - all they did was have biased idiots endlessly repeat their spin. After a few minutes I just put the TV on mute until they returned to the live coverage of the actual news event. Congratulations CNN on becoming almost as inane as Fox - how about providing your viewers with a service and fact-checking statements? We get enough opinions masquerading as news - if you gave us "just the facts ma'am" instead of spin you might actually distinguish yourself from your competitors.

    Cnn is your DOING all you CAN to help the GOP, RNC , and the Baggers, you can not even be TRUTHFULL ,with your so CALLED GOP Tickers. the only FACE ,that CNN has ,is the FACE of the Republican Party, and it has LOST all CREDITABILITY, with the MAJORITY of the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Cnn has CHOOSEN to Promote ,the PARTY OF NO MINDS, which means you LOSE CNN. It is a SHAMELESS way that Cnn has taken the on the GOP AGENDA, that this so called NETWORK ,has SOLD OUT to the Right Wing . Yesterday the COVERAGE,of the Health Summitt was so GOP, cutting away from President Obamas REMARKS , to that PANEL of CLOWNS,where was Rollin Martin, Joe Johns is A JOKE,and so is CNN. Will see if you POST this COMMENT Cnn?

    You are my only television source for world news. You are the best!Why then have you recently had national advertisements for FOX World News on your station. The almighty buck, got you, too! Also, since Lou Dobbs left the (whoops! can't say left. He'd hate that. He only uses the word right. When he drives, he goes in circles because he only makes right turns) CNN, your boy Jack Cafferty seems to have taken up the anti liberal, anti Obama, anti Democratic party mantra for him and instead of reporting the news as is, he is editorializing it. Maybe not always words, but certainly in facial expressions and intonation. Wolf , too! Not as often. Jack seems to be the leader. Stronger than Wolf. Why? What's the story? Cronkite. Rather. Garroway. NBC, ABC, CBS. Sorry, one of your advertisers, FOX, doesn't count.

    look – enough of this technology socializing stuff – haven't you noticed most people can't spell or put together a coherent sentence because of all this Facebook and Twitter crap! Make people read and write intelligently – and not worry about how many "friends" or "tweets" they get. This is just another step in the "dumbing down" of the country. Worry more about the content in the Ticker and less about the "facebook".

    I hope it is less of a memory hog over on Facebook. Sometimes, this page can just kill my processing power with all of the imbedded video and javascript.
