    Regarding Don Lemmon being rated as "THE WORST", he's not the worst but needs improvement badly
    I've watched him over the last four months and he stunk in the beginning, cutting into everyones answers, but he has improved. Earlier it did appear he had no ability to 'LISTEN' and quite often kept telling everyone to hurry up.
    He has gotten somewhere better but still needs some fine tuning.
    Try just listening, and at the end of a thought/sentence then asked your nest question. CNN as a whole is pretty good if you DVR it, since you must because they have commercials every 3-4 minutes.
    Is there anyway CNN can put the names of the quests under the pictures in a larger text format, and leave them on the screen so we can read them, rather then putting it up for about .05 seconds. Thank god I watch it on DVR, I can rewind and read the name of the quests.

    Pretty sad that CNN apparently does not have the resources to keep the blogs up to date. For example, why don't you cover the uncensored video of the Charlie Hebdo attack that clearly shows the gunman did not kill the cop?

    DO AIRLINE SECURITY ORGANIZATIONS EVER LEARN. HOW does someone smuggle that many guns in an airplane. (bangs head against table). Sigh. I guess without corruption,there is no news, right?

    I watch cnn daily. I'm always amazed by how hard it is to understand Brooke B. She stutters and her words are mushed together making it immensely difficult to understand. Perhaps she rushes her conversation?

    Brooke, please look at the video where they really broke Freddie's neck with terrible force most likely from a foot or knee to the neck. Its where they initially tackled Freddie and was witnessed by the man sitting on the sidewalk. This is where Freddies neck was smashed, NOT IN THE VAN.
    they are trying to divert attention to the van. Do not let them do that. The neck injury was at the site where they lifed him up by his shoulders. NOT he van. all the damage was not done in the van it was prior to that. Look at the cop trying to support freddies neck while the 2 stupid cops lift Freddie and move him to the van.
    Email me if you want more of my thoughts on this. I have x-rayed many neck injuries in my career as an Radiologic technologist.

    Brooke Baldwin is about the worst race baiter on cable. Endless banter where it seems she will only be happy once a white cop gets killed by an agitator.
    She is a perfect example of how low the cable news standards have fallen over the years. Rating and performance have little to do with the cable model today. Baldwin is a mindless parrot who can only read whats put in front of her.

    Until you take an oath, become separated from your family to serve a country so that people like you have the right to freedom of speech, and the quality of life that you've been afforded you have a lot of balls to blame Veterans for the same military tactics that have kept you safe. Shame on you!

    Brooke you truely must be a sad person on the inside. YOUR WELCOME for the right to say the horrible things that you BELIEVE deep down inside you. Yes some VETS do come back with issues, many or most do not! With the huge amount of VET suicides I am shocked that you with all the viewers that are at you command that you perpetuate the publics negative opinion of us! No wonder the public thinks simple minded like yourself! I am truely upset with the Hate you have helped spread. Yes you have the right to express yourself, but please dont think or underestimate how stupid the public is by saying you were only passing on what you heard earlier in the day! Then give the name of the person who suggested it, have them come on air and take the blame for you. That person does not exist and you KNOW what is the truth, you are a Hater! No one is perfect, I certainly am not, however, I try to watch what I say and I forgive you ONLY for being human but not for your deep hatred for the same people who Sweat, blead and die for you to be allowed to be the bad person that you are! Shame Brooke, shame!

    Concerning the comments made by Brooke Baldwin about service personnel. She has the nerve to live in the freedoms we supply as service personnel. This women should been fired. But in this world she will not be.
    Saying I have relatives who are service personnel I apologize does not do. I have memories of service personnel that serving you will never hear again. So I'm hearing for them you have the freedom to say what ever you want but it should not be on the news.
    I cannot believe people with beliefs such as yours get so far in this country today. This country use to honor the people that protect it soldiers as well as police you honor neither.
    So I will not except an apology from you till you prove you are sorry. Go out and do service for your country walk in a soldiers shoes or a police officers shoes . Until then no apology will work.

    Could newroom presenters please stop beginning their sentences with “you know,”. So very unprofessional. There seems to be a terrible lack of professionalism these days on news, etc. Do they need yo go back to school and/ or training?! It is not cute either, just lazy and unprofessional.

    That action illustrates yet another threat to airports: the ability to get a weapon into an area where security is the least restrictive.

    Airline security is a miserable business. Getting through a checkpoint is much like being in a fire drill in the middle of a traffic pileup at the busiest intersection in the city. And now, thanks to a leaked report on the Transportation Security Administration, we have a hard number to assign to our feelings of frustration: Airline security is 95 percent ineffective.
    Right Property
    ABC News reports that TSA agents failed to detect a threat in 67 out of 70 recent trials. Posing as passengers, U.S. Department of Homeland Security “Red Teams” were able to carry weapons and fake explosives (“simulant” threats) through security checkpoints without any trouble.
