CNN Needs To Be Mindful Of Bernie Shaw As It Resurrects “Inside Politics”

January 31, 2014


If you are my age, and enjoy politics the memory of Bernie Shaw and his remarkable work on CNN will easily come to mind.  One of the shows he worked on, and in time would be joined by the equally professional Judy Woodruff, was Inside Politics.  With deep analysis and pointed interviews the show was designed to not only report on the current events with politicians, but look ahead and try to better determine what might next be occurring in the world of politics.  I absolutely loved the show and recorded it each day so I could watch it later in the evening.

CNN has now decided to resurrect Inside Politics with John King starting this Sunday at 8:30 A.M. E.T.  The revamped show will feature a rotating panel of political reporters.

I am hoping that the show can tap down beneath the headlines and the typical questions that are lobbed around by these types of programs.  I am hoping that somewhere there is the memory of the work Bernie Shaw provided to CNN, and then use that as a template on how this current program needs to operate.
