And they call themselves a news organization ...

but, according to this report from Drudge, CNN operates like a reality tv program. (ht: Roger L. Simon)

After weeks of intense Katrina coverage from the main press, LA TIMES guru and former CNN host Michael Kinsley divulges that CNN was coaching guests to artificially enhance emotions!

Kinsley writes:

"The TV news networks, which only a few months ago were piously suppressing emotional fireworks by their pundits, are now piously encouraging their news anchors to break out of the emotional straitjackets and express outrage. A Los Angeles Times colleague of mine, appearing on CNN last week to talk about Katrina, was told by a producer to 'get angry.'"

CNN: A brand new season coming this Fall, with a new cast of thousands. Check local listings for dates and times.
