Brian Stelter for NYT:

Fans of CNN may have noticed over the weekend that James Earl Jones’s voice is back, proclaiming “This is CNN” in his authoritative baritone. Its restoration was a symbolic first act by Jeff Zucker, the new chief executive of CNN Worldwide, whose first official day on the job was Monday.

The Force is strong with this one. (Seriously though, who decided to stop airing that in the first place?!)


I’m confused as to what exactly I’m accused of here. I posted a link to Microsoft’s side of the argument. And I followed up with Google’s response. As a result, CNN staff writer David Goldman seems to think he has me in some sort of GOTCHA!

Newsflash for Goldman: my personal blog is not The New York Times. I post links to things I find interesting throughout the day with a short blurb about them. Occasionally I write longer posts where I dive deeper, but that’s no longer my primary job. 

Yes, it sucks that I wrote the post burning down your industry after I left, but that was also the point. A (now) outsider’s perspective on the state of the industry. 

Feel free to not consider my personal blog the paper of record for the industry. Having said that, I’m still not sure why the two links from opposing viewpoints constitutes a GOTCHA!
