    I cannot believe this – just turned on the TV and a young man from your show says "we are looking for emotion from these families" after he had knocked on doors of the fallen's families – REALLY? REALLY? Is your imagination gone? Is this why you are a "journalist" to get a little emotion out of people? This was not good.

    CNN seems to put a lot of weight on what Donald Trump says in terms of being an expert on business and
    fianace. How does his many times in reorganization and the circumstances feflect good fiscal judment and
    good fiduciary care? He is very much like many of the people in charge now.

    So enjoying the comedy hour you seem to be hosting with Donald Trump. Hard to believe that anyone would actually be interviewing such a fool at this serious moment in US history. Thanks for the comic relief.

    I can see how proud they are about their invention but I didn't see any sujestion on how to prevent their invention from hacking in to people privacy which should have been the point of discution, to me is just like having a gorilla in a cage with an empty gun and drop some bullets in the cage and show a video how to load the gun a shoot it won't be long before it figures out how to do it. now I only hope they invent a device that can be installed in those towers to prevent what they just said it can be done with that drone, then it will be something worth been proud to show.
