The News Phenomenon that is Justin Bieber

I’ve been with CNN for three and a half months now, and I must mournfully admit that – in that time – Justin Bieber has made a greater contribution to the network’s output than I have. I’d like to say I’m not bitter. But I can’t and I won’t.

In the 100 days it has taken me to learn the news input system and annoy the entire newsroom with my shrill Scottish brogue, Justin Bieber has:

Frankly, this represents obscene overachievement from one so young. But, that said, if Mr. Bieber keeps going at this rate, he will provide plenty of fodder for News Stream’s “Over and Out There” feature. And if this happens, I will eventually, inevitably fall victim to the Bieber Fever.

Justin Bieber. Truly a newsmaker for our times.
