Here is the moment CNN International took over the CNN Domestic feed anchored by Jonathan Vause from CNN Center in Atlanta.


I'm here to give you something to talk about!

No news bulletins of any sort bar headline updates on the half hour on CNNI between 4-9pm - instead several canned programs, 2 repeats of Fareed Zakaria and a Reliable Sources simulcast. Totally the "World's News Leader".

Still at least we're getting Connect The World at the moment - tackling the big issues such as the impact of Brexit on sandwiches.

Reliable Sources isn't even a simulcast, it's on delay.

Makes it even more ridiculous to show it in that case. Especially when there’s an international newsreader twiddling their thumbs in Atlanta/New York.

The schedule change recently seemed to get rid of the some more ridiculous weekday schedules issues but the weekend schedule is as bad as ever. Compare to Al Jazeera where there are just as many bulletins as on weekdays.

In a huge shock, CNNI leading on two European stories tonight. And unsurprisingly doing a good job on both. Wish the channel was like this more often rather than constant Trump chat and speculation.

I suppose one of these two stories was about Macron's announcements and/or the yellow-vest protest; what was the other European story covered?

The two stories were Macron's announcement and the other was Brexit. Watched most of the hour and not a single mention of Trump. Just a really strong hour with plenty of international correspondents.
Did chuckle when they lost the link to Matthew Chance who was standing a matter of metres away from where Hala was in Westminster.

Business as usual across the pond.

Whereas apparently they're currently airing PMQs live on CNN - and I'm referring to CNN Domestic too. Talk about a turn up for the books! Surely Trump must have tweeted what he'd had for breakfast to distract them.

Turned on last night during the Strasbourg breaking news and CNNI were airing The Leas as normal - which was talking about, no surprises here, Trump.

Have to say Hala Gorani has been very strong these last few days on-location in Westminster and Bianca Nobilo, while I didn't think she was great as an anchor, has been strong reporting on it the last few weeks.
They seem to be using ex-BBC political correspondent (and now occassional BBC News fill-in presenter) Carole Walker too for analysis.
