CNN Politics Digital Debuts ‘Being Moody’

CNN’s Chris Moody (@moody) is bringing his distinctive, offbeat coverage to viewers with the launch of the new CNN Politics Digital video series Being Moody.  

Each digital episode will get lawmakers and candidates to show a more casual side of themselves, while also highlighting the absurd, wacky and whimsical corners of political life in the 2016 campaign and the halls of Congress.

In the debut episode, Moody goes home to Palm Beach, FL and sheds a light on the behind-the-scenes fundraising and courting taking place months before candidates even declare their campaigns.

From lame ducks to chocolate bars, you’re not going to want to miss a single episode of Moody’s series, produced in partnership by CNN Politics Digital and CNN Digital Studios.

The CNN Guns Project: A Special Report

The objective was simple: Examine America’s relationship to guns - the lives they save, the lives they take, and the lives they define.

We’d seen the statistics. More than 32,000 people were killed by gunfire in 2011, the most recent year for which statistics are available. And, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 70,000 suffered nonfatal injuries from guns.

Our goal was to report every shooting that happened in that 24-hour period. We tried to track the shootings in real time, calling police stations, using social media and tapping into CNN resources across the country. In the days and weeks that followed, we dug deeper into the incidents, which left at least 35 people dead and 74 injured. We followed up on every shooting, and we profile six incidents that were representative.

After hundreds of calls, we are certain about one thing - we did not capture every gun incident. Despite our best efforts, our methodology is incomplete. There’s no national database of each shot fired. Not every shooting is reported to police.

Still, the story of everyday gun violence in the United States is largely untold.
