Extraordinary scenes from Washington on CNN right now, though CNNI just cutaway for “100 Club” and “Dubai Downtime” trail!

I couldn't believe it either. Amazing incompetence by whoever made this call.

By the looks of it, it was unintentional.

Does seem to sum up CNNI in a nutshell though, showing inconsequential crap like this while important news is happening. If it was African Voices they'd cut to it would almost be a cliche.

Ah I've missed the 100 Club since becoming acquainted with it in November. Looking forward to watching that and adverts for random African banks over and over again this evening.

CNN have just gone to commercial/filler, it was abrupt so obviously something scheduled and not overridden

Yeah looked to be accidental, almost exactly at 8pm GMT.

Took several minutes to fix though which surprised me... Probably stunned at what is going on though...

She really should think before she tweets and stop using Twitter as her personal notepad.
What a dreadful choice of words!

Totally accidental. CNN’s coverage of this circus has been flawless.

And if anyone needed reminding of their Free UK stream (which works perfectly beamed to a tv). Here it is.

Interestingly RT covering the Assange extradition whilst this is live on other channels.

Presume it's live on the US networks - and to be honest I think it warrants breaking coverage on BBC1/ ITV - truly astonishing scenes.
