Chaos News Network?

Marketwatch’s Jon Friedman writes about CNN…

The Time Warner-owned network is stuck in a death match with MSNBC for the No. 2 position in the cable news ratings. Meanwhile, the Fox News Channel, the longtime pacesetter, looks somewhat like Secretariat lapping the field at the Belmont Stakes, when it comes to the ratings. (Fox, like MarketWatch, is owned by News Corp.)

Clearly there is a lot of pressure on Klein, who calls the shots for CNN’s U.S. news operations, to make tough decisions these days.

Can Klein — or anyone — ease the turmoil at Chaos News Network?

Let’s hope so. It’s no fun writing a column like this one, about the decline and potential demise of a once-great brand. Today, I have a few friends who work for CNN and I feel a little sorry for them because they give a damn about the network’s past, present and future.
