You Choose! Winners and Losers!

Winning story! Option #1 – Firefighters in Georgia have rescued a 14-month-old girl from a locked bank vault.  Here's how the toddler got there... she was visiting her grandmother, who works at the bank, when she wandered into the open vault. It locked automatically at closing time. Authorities pumped air into the vault, while firefighters struggled to free her, but turns out.. they couldn't open the vault! Finally a locksmith used a drill to break open the vault -  The baby was trapped in the vault for four hours. She is doing ok.

Option #2 – A rodeo catastrophe.  Sometimes front row seats aren't always a good thing. Especially if you are at this rodeo in North Carolina!  Two spectators up front got a closer view of the action than they wanted when the bull jumped over a five-foot wall.  One fan suffered a broken foot and the other a bruised leg, scrambling to get out of the way. As for the bull – he actually went on with the show. vo.bull.jumps.stands.WITN

Option #3 – Forget the Oscars, the Razzie Awards are taking note of the year's worst films. Here's a quick look at the winners – or maybe I should say losers:  Worst actor: Ashton Kutcher for both "Killers" and "Valentine's Day." Worst actress: All four of the ladies from "Sex and the City 2," that's Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis.  The top prize went to "The Last Airbender" for worst movie of 2010. It also picked up worst director, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor and a new category - worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D. Ouch. index.html

    THANKS BE TO GOD THAT SOMEBODY THOUGHT OUTSIDE THE BOX AND WALKED IT OUT. THE DYNAMICS OF THE WORLD HAVE CHANGED – WAKE UP PEOPLE. Thanks for the clarification that this is NOT an intended effort for bias groups, but an effort to assist people in getting an education. This group would not award a scholarship to my 3 sons, but my nephew would qualify as he is 25% white. Get over it people and send them a donation. Food for Thought: What would happen if we made selections for jobs, scholarships, loans, housing, insurance and medical care with no consideration for race. Surely there is a computer program that will allow the entire application to be modified of certain information for selection process, yet keep tracking vital information separately and accurately.

    I want to see the baby locked in the vault, because we've watched the whole bull charging the crowd scene plenty of times and its getting old and I can google the Razzie Award winners. The baby one seems the most interesting. I'm curious to find out how that happened exactly.

    I understand you're trying to involve the viewers, but I personally think this is a bad idea. CNN has already shown all of these stories, and in the air time wasted on "You Choose", you could have shown all three stories multiple times. Thank you for asking for our input, but please find a better way to do it.

    It's really pathetic that the White House and UN can be taliking human rights when thier human rights are not worth the paper they are written on because Hillary Rodham Clinton has her goons beat up a man off camera for turning his back on Clinton for protesting her when he was an ex-CIA agent for 25 years including under Bush and is a veteran even though she is a democrat and voted for the illegal wars that the Bush regime fought illegally, so much so that Bush's crony Rumsfeld is making the rounds making himself not responsible to any of it.

    Talk about DUMBING DOWN THE NEWS for DAYTIME LISTENERS...IT IS INSULTING; AND ANNOYING. If I wanted to play games in place of the news; I would tune into another network. The gimmick of Choosing The News waters down CNN's generally excellent coverage.

    On 'NANCY GRACE'...
    While I'm taking the time to voice my opinion, I am not a big fan of the 'frenetic' sensationalism on HLN either; i.e., 24/7 of missing children, killing children, mothers etc. And we wonder where our young people get their ideas; this becomes their reality. What happened to HEADLINE News? You are better than this.

    I too am a proud Hispanic and I fail to see the problem with a Geo scholarship to the whites in any underprivileged area. We are one people we are Americans. If we do not do away with all the other scholarship programs then we can not in good conscious do away with this one. I do feel strongly that the pendulum has swung too far the other way and the days that we needed to help the minorities are over. we now need to help poor people regardless of their race creed or religion.
