I'm watching CNN and they mentioned Twitter and its role in these events without bringing up the twitter names. So hopefully they're actually learning from all the phone calls.

Phone calls, messages on Twitter, e-mails; I'm sure they got on the Clue Bus at one of these stops.

I think you're severely overestimating CNN. As someone who endures 40 hours of CNN each week at work, they Clue Bus isn't even in the same universe as those dipshits. And I'm not just referring to their Iran coverage. If you watch enough, you realize how mind-numbingly horrible that channel is.

But it's either that or Fox when I'm at work, so CNN it is.

Oh, CNN is pretty crappy, but with enough people screaming, "For god's sake, STOP SAYING NAMES," then they will, if for no other reason than to shut people up (and stop the waves of bad PR, note how CNN coverage took off after #CNNfail), stop saying names.

you know, it sucks they look at it that way, but i'm kind of like... if it makes people pay attention to what's going on over there then okay, sell it that way to begin with.

I bet its more so all the phone calls/messages/e-mails will stop, rather than any respect for the lives being risked.

Eh, just let 'em know it'll hurt their coverage if these users go missing or are killed. They'll care then.
