VIDEO: CNN Translates English to……English

There was an awkward few moments on CNN last night when they took a feed from a press conference where David Cameron was speaking with French President, François Hollande.

Perfect! The feed came with a translator allowing an English audience to listen to what Hollande had to say.

The problem occurred with Hollande finished talking and Cameron started. The French to English translation continued.

That’s okay! CNN just translated it back to English again.


CNN veteran leaves the network


Long time CNN anchor and correspondent Jim Clancy has left CNN.

The announcement comes just days after the journalist was involved in a controversial Twitter exchange about Charlie Hedbo’s cartoons which led to Clancy deleting his account.


Here is the full statement:

​After nearly 34 years with Cable News Network, the time has come to say Farewell!

It has been my honor to work alongside all of you for all of these years. This is one of the greatest news organizations in the world. It has truly revolutionized information delivery while driving technological advances in how we gather the news.

Through it all, CNN has been a family to my own family. That means something.

As I reflect on all of the great adventures and achievements of the past, I wish you great success in the future.

Jim Clancy

Not done yet! I’ll be covering an upcoming murder trial of a certain athlete near Boston starting next month. Thanks to all for helping me in every facet of news gathering. What a team!
