A rare Amara Walker sighting on CNNI- she's in for Victor Blackwell on New Day today. She's far too good to be stuck on fill-in duty.
She was moved over to Domestic when her show on CNNi ended. She's main cover for New Day Weekend, a National Correspondent and also covers on Early Start.
Fill-in duty on the lowest-priority CNN Domestic shows essentially so a fairly big demotion.
I agree, put it on last night and it's very US-focused which is not ideal for the rest of the world.
Agreed. Hugely irresponsible for such the apparent 'Global Leader in News'. The Editorial direction is appalling. At the very least CNN could insert an 'Around The World' segment into the hour.
They've lost all perspective covering Trump's sessions for hours each day. Very sad I'm bashing what was a favourite channel of mine.
Indeed I get the coronavirus may have left them short-staffed but the channel has essentially shut down with CNNI bulletins basically just airing during US's overnight hours.
Which maybe might not matter as much if it were say a BBC News/World News type situation and the two channels are similar quality and output but they're not. CNNI's output is more often than not pretty strong whereas CNNUS is just a joke and way too America centered- US perspective on a story isn't a bad thing but on CNNUS it's the only thing.
And CNNI playing second fiddle to Domestic is just the norm at this stage - to the extent that it's a surprise these days if certain scheduled shows like The Brief or YWT make it to air. I honestly think I've seen more of say Kaitlin Collins or Brian Stelter in the last 6 months than I have the excellent Bianca Nobilo who's meant to have a Monday-Friday show on CNNI. While you'd like to imagine it's not the case I do wonders at times if CNN actually cares about CNNI.
