Went to the CNN newsroom in New York for the first time today, and it was certainly...freaky. It reminded me of...Bladerunner crossed with Brazil, maybe. Video monitors everywhere, and people scurrying from wherever people scurry to wherever they scurry to. Made me wonder how bad the CNN headquarters in Atlanta must be. I went to the Viacom headquarters yesterday, and it was certainly a little more laid back, though not by much. When I got in the door I was greeted by six giant flat-panel LCD screens simultaneously broadcasting the video for "Lean Back." I couldn't help but crack up (I always crack up when I see that video). CNN could use to lean back a bit, I think. Lean back.
