Discussion on the Cable News Network, carried on from this thread.

Poppy Harlow, substitute anchor for CNN Newsroom, collapsed on-air yesterday.

Harlow is six months pregnant and expecting a baby girl.

When the show returned from a lengthy break, Harlow reassured viewers that she was ok.

“For all of you on Twitter asking if I’m okay, thank you so much,” Harlow said. “I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine, we’re going to take a quick break. We’ll be right back.”

Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now. So thankful to our amazing CNN team. Update from the hospital – our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!


Not wanting to be pedantic, but the heading of this thread should be CNN, not Cnn.


Unfortunately Discourse doesn’t allow all caps topics or categories at this time. It was annoying me so much I included the full name in the topic title instead of just the acronym.


yep it does my head in - it’s a real annoyance but not much can be done.


A spokeswoman for the presidential candidate Donald Trump, Katrina Pierson, who regularly represents Mr Trump on TV, has been slammed for wearing a necklace made of bullets during an appearance on CNN.

If that wasn’t strange enough, she defiantly responded to the criticism with a bizarre remark about wearing a foetus next time.


CNN embarrassment Don Lemon is at it again it seems…

How this man remains on-air and employed is beyond me.

I was watching CNN and thought they had switched to Helvetica from Gotham:

CNN’s new custom font doesn’t really look too unique, if that’s what they were going for.

It appears that AT&T wants to buy CNN’s parent, TimeWarner…


CNN’s move toward more tabloid, down-market journalism seems to have paid off. The news network is looking at a potential $1 billion in profit alone, its highest ever.
