I can't say I really understand CNN's wall-to-wall balloon coverage. In Syria, regime forces seized a major city, Operation Roundup airstrikes reportedly hit 54 Islamic State fighters, over 200 people killed in Japanese floods, trade talks with Beijing have reportedly broken down
I maintain my dream news network is some grumpy retiree coming on and saying "A thing happened. Here's where it happened. Here's why it happened. Here's when it happened. Here's another thing that happened. Ok, no more things. On to sports, weather, and business."
I try not to knock all cable news, as there's some really great reporters out there and some shows like Tapper and Special Report do a good job.

But most of it is like watching Jerry Spring with economics and foreign policy.
