But it's neat seeing arguably one of the most watched News Channels in the world at work. They also have the longest escalator in the world, really. The logistics and the size of the room really suprise you, it's just a normal sized place with a corner area for film. It looks cheap and not at all that fancy. They have a New York studio that has swankier duds, this place is the factory and not the showroom.
CNN is a joke to me too, but the way they get their news is the best. A field of interns that look to be in their 20's are at a mob of desks checking online. When they come across "news" they pass it along to the leads who vet it some more and then pass it up the chain. You can totally see how bogus news and disinformation gets aired, and yet it is likely the key reason they can be so fast to act. It's just surf FARK, then send it along the chain.
So really a kid finds info and passes it along that can change world opinion, alter mindsets, and/or and be really interesting...or just they could get played by a made up somethingawful link that a goon drops on them. Funny :)
