I've been thinking lately that CNN has a real chance at revival, should they choose to. At a ratings crossroad, the one time news leader is at an all-time low in viewership. Both sides, left and right have their diet of red meat fed to them on Foxnews and MSNBC. If CNN were able to create a true balanced, unbiased editorial stance the people would gravitate to it. Every metric can be quantified and analysed and made into an easy to read TV graphic. Think baseball broadcasts where now even OBP (on base percentage) is understood and followed along with batting averages, earned run averages, etc by even the most casual fan of the game. Imagine if every journalist at CNN was followed as closely as a ballplayer?
