CNN president wants to take new approach to stories

Newsweek Article - After feeling that the Michael Jackson verdict playing live on television would be stale, CNN president Jonathan Klein said he regretted the "endless parade" of Jackson stories and coverage in primetime on the cable news network, which has slipped in ratings behind FoxNews Channel. Klein has killed shows like "Crossfire" (whose Tucker Carlson has been moved to MSNBC and has an equally horrid show there) and "Inside Politics". He hopes to make primetime hours more like "60 Minutes" rather than short sensational reports about celebrity trials.
