CNNI

I have a recommedation for those of you who like news but get tired of the repetitive pap you get on most news programs. Even The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer tends to go into repeat mode after the first hour. Jack Cafferty's cynicism keeps it interesting, though.

I may have already mentioned that I like BBC, but I just recently discovered CNNI, CNN's international news channel. I would strongly recommend that you check it out if you can get it. For those of you who like business news with a bit of a twist I recommend Quest Means Business with host Richard Quest. Quite informative and very entertaining.

If it hadn't been for CNNI I wouldn't have known about the cricket scandal concerning doctored balls. The cricket balls, not the player's. Although after the Tiger Woods scandal I can see where there might be some confusion (but that would be golf).

Speaking of Tiger Woods, be sure to check out this month's issue of Vanity Fair. Or at least the cover. I am holding my breath while waiting for a similar picture of John Daly.
