Wolf Blitzer: We’re happy you’re here. You guys did a great job. I guess you got to thank the Lord. Right?
Blitzer: Did you thank the Lord for that split-second decision?
Survivor: I — I’m actually an atheist.
Blitzer: You are. All right. But you made the right call.
Survivor: Yeah. We are here. And you know, I don’t blame anybody for thanking the Lord.
Blitzer: Of course not.”

“CNN has been in the middle of a rehabilitation ever since Jeff Zucker was appointed at the end of last year to run CNN Worldwide. Until now, the defining story in the Zucker era had been a doomed cruise ship that lost power and was towed to port, where its beleaguered passengers dispersed. This week, CNN seemed a lot like that ship.
… Part of the reason that we still want CNN to be great is that at a moment when information and news seem to have done a jailbreak — bursting forth everywhere in all sorts of ways — it would be nice to have a village common where a reliable provider of news held the megaphone. By marketing itself as the most trusted name in news, CNN is and should be held to a higher standard.”
