Rick Sanchez De-Twittered

TV Newser details how CNN's Rick Sanchez was among around 30 people who had their Twitter accounts hacked inside the last 24 hours.

CNN addresses the issue in a statement:


"Twitter accounts used by CNN's Rick Sanchez and many others were recently compromised. As a result, some Twitter users may have received offensive messages attributed to Rick when the breach occurred. This is annoying, though such breaches are not uncommon when using social networking sites.

Rick has notified Twitter of his account's breach and taken some basic steps to secure his account's access. Rick enjoys communicating with viewers via Twitter and he and many others at CNN find social networking a valuable tool in their shows. Rick will continue to use Twitter — along with MySpace and Facebook — to engage CNN's audience."

Rick Sanchez is the wrong choice for a program of'
this type. Hire Conor Knighton from Current and
run the comments on the left like Havoc on the
101 and add some news and get away from talk
and opinion. In 2009 let's hope that CNN becomes
the 1st 24/7 cable news network to declare it's
independence from ideological journalism. Less
talking heads and pundits and more news and
interesting stories.

I agree with the Current idea. The network is being
revamped right now and they do have some young
host that could work on the weekends and HLN
as well.I really enjoy the Vanguard journalism
franchise. For the first time a more divers public
will be tuning in to watch the news. Women &
minorities are expecting to be tuning in more than
ever. Rachel Sklar had an interesting item on the
Daily Beast. She hinted at the possibility of a
cable news network having a black male in prime
time. Can you say TJ Holmes. Hello CNN. Rachel
says DL Hugley does not count. The person needs
to be a journalist. I think a lot of the people at
Current could be a help to Larry King. Have
Knighton do a CNN type Infomania for LKL each
night and others from Current teaming up with
CNN journalists . I also think CNN should permit
viewers to submit legit news stories. Run an
Infomania type program at 3pm with Knighton
to replace Sanchez. The formula is already out-
dated. As the program now stands it is nothing
but talk radio.

I think HLN should move Showbiz to the 9pm hour
and make the show live. It might help them hold
on to Nancy Grace viewers and challenge MSNBC.

TJ Holmes can't even string together two non-scripted sentences without mumbling and bumbling and umming more than Anderson Cooper and George Bush put together.
Don Lemon would be good - he should have not been demoted to weekends. Or get back the best they ever had - Leon Harris.

If you switch Don & TJ in the above post.. You'd be right on target.
