Cable News Network {CNN} Begins Broadcasting- This Day 1980

CNN began broadcasting this day in 1980. I remember at the time thinking this was great. I have always been a news junkie and I would enjoy watching CNN in the early days. Now we have all-news stations all over the telly and a news cycle that is 24/7/365… I have changed my mind. We have too much now. Kind of like baseball. When all you had was the Saturday Game of the Week, Monday night baseball and my team-the Pittsburgh Pirates put most of their away schedule on tv it was special. Now its all over the place and its not an event anymore. Just another ballgame on television. Less sometimes is better than too much.
