On the future of news

Imagine news as a filter in the age of information overload.

News Stream producer Ravi Hiranand recently spoke to The Verge on the future of TV news:

"A TV news show has a finite length. So I can’t show you every single photo of Superstorm Sandy’s power. I have to select the most powerful ones, the most important ones, and I can try to explain to people who might not necessarily know anything about New York why a particular image is so striking."

If you too are a media junkie, read on. It's a great discussion piece.

    A few weeks ago, there was an announcement on CNN telling the viewers that a new program "News Room" would be aired at 21:00 from November 19 in HK. I worried a lot because I have been watching NewsStream anchored by Kristie Lu Stout for a couple of years. Luckily in the end, you still retained the NewsStream and opened the News Room anchored by Andrew Stevens and Patricia at 6:00 HKT. That's a good arrangement for me, a loyal viewer of CNN. Besides, the introductory design right in the very beginning of NewsStream is extraordinary, lots of 3-D designs, the sound track, some landmark buildings the world over...,etc. It is the best design among all CNN news programs.
