  As much as it pains me to agree with CNN, they are correct
DRUDGE REPORT FLASH 2005®: "CNN President Jonathan Klein implies ratings news leader FOXNEWS is mired in coverage of 'meaningless nonsense,' claiming: 'Fourteen Americans dead, and they have Natalee Holloway on,' Klein says. 'And they're supposedly America's news channel.'

'It's easy and it's brainless,' Klein charges in a telephone interview set for publication at the NEW YORK TIMES, explaining why cable news outlets had gravitated to the Aruba story. 'They're looking for an ongoing drama' along the lines of the NBC crime show 'Law & Order,' he said, adding, 'Except 'Law & Order' doesn't do the same plot every night.'

'There are an awful lot of things you can cover if you don't have people tied up with this meaningless nonsense,' Klein says.

In early July, Klein pulled CNN's correspondent out of Aruba and dropped the subject from most CNN shows in the absence of new developments.

'If Jon performed as well as he talks, he wouldn't have to explain his network's dismal ratings,' says Irena Briganti, a spokeswoman for FOXNEWS. 'We have trounced him on every breaking news story from the London bombings and last week's events in Gaza.'"
