Fluff in the Morning-Another Newspaper wakes up to the fact that the "News" is Tabloid

Hartford Courant

Speaking of cable news, you'd think they'd pride themselves as being different from the broadcast shows. Instead, they've been trying harder to be more like them. There are more substantial interviews on "American Morning" on CNN, but its "90-Second Pop" segment among magazine editors and self-styled humorists is more scurrilous than anything on the networks. (Last week, for example, someone offered the wholly unsubstantiated opinion that Constantine's departure from "Idol" may have been the result of hanky panky with judge Paula Abdul.)

Even the no-nonsense half hour from BBC News on cable's BBC America is alternated with a half-hour report on movies - as if to attain the required morning balance of fiber with fluff.

....

The countdown most worth looking for is the one toward removing the pretense that any of these morning shows actually has anything to do with news.
