CNN's John Berman flips through political history to prove this election is mere "child's play" for negativity.
CNN has completed its internal review of Fareed Zakaria’s work for CNN, including a look back at his Sunday programs, documentaries, and CNN.com blogs. The process was rigorous. We found nothing that merited continuing the suspension.
Zakaria has apologized for a journalistic lapse. CNN and Zakaria will work together to strengthen further the procedures for his show and blog.
Fareed Zakaria’s quality journalism, insightful mind and thoughtful voice meaningfully contribute to the dialogue on global and political issues. His public affairs program GPS will return on Sunday, August 26 at 10am ET on CNN/US and 8am ET on CNN/International.
Grab a skillet and some elastic pants, and let’s dish together about gastronomic genius Julia Child and her influence on the culinary arts. CNN’s food blog Eatocracy cooked up a plateful of articles that paint a delicious picture of her enchanting personality, as well as the effect she had on fellow foodies. One post collects memories from Julia Child fans as they share stories of learning to cook or accidentally getting cut by her knife (yes, you heard that right). We’ve also conducted research and learned ten interesting facts about her: Did you know she spent time in Sri Lanka and China when she worked with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS)? Or that she once attributed her longevity to “red meat and gin”? Her life was so interesting and she inspired so many people, it’s no surprise that her kitchen is in the Smithsonian.
Oh, and we almost left off Jeanne Moos’s heartfelt and humorous piece about the Julia Child autotune. Almost.
(CNN) – CNN Thursday turned the important battleground state of Wisconsin from "lean Obama" to true "toss up" on its electoral map, in the wake of Mitt Romney's naming of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, a seven term congressman from the Badger state, as his running mate.
One contributing factor behind CNN's move was a new poll that matched two others from last week that indicate that the presidential contest in Wisconsin is close. While Ryan's announcement did not dramatically alter the presidential poll numbers in Wisconsin, it did change the way both campaigns viewed the state of the race in the state.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) explains why he thinks that the backlash against Vice President Joe Biden's "in chains" comment is unmerited on Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien.
Rep. Cleaver says, “And so it makes absolutely no sense that some kind of a little throwaway line is now being used to make Vice President Biden appear to have been throwing out these words in order to somehow attract dumb African-Americans who if they hear the words chains are going to automatically vote for him and President Obama.”
When CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien asks Cleaver if his reaction would be the same if the these comments came from Governor Romney’s speech, he answers, “I'm not sure. I think it depends on the context.”
Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
The U.S. women's gymnastics team discusses their Olympic victory and explains what they're looking forward to next on Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien.
When CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien asks Gabby Douglas if she felt confident that she was going to "nail it," she replies, “Coming in, I felt very confident. I trained so many years and put a lot of effort and determination into the gym. And you have to go in and be strong and courageous. And not be scared or be afraid of anything. So you've just got to treat it like any other competition.”
National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown says that the Family Research Council shooting was “politically motivated” and labeling the organization a hate group is “totally irresponsible.”
Brown says, “All the indications from multiple sources that were there, say the shooter actually came in and started attacking the policies of the Family Research Council.”
He continues, “Everything points to the fact that this was politically motivated…. Groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has labeled the Family Research Council, which is a mainstream group, a hate group. That sort of talk… is totally irresponsible and unacceptable and I think this incident makes that clear.”
Early Start with John Berman & Zoraida Sambolin airs weekday mornings from 5-7a ET on CNN.
