“CNN announced Wednesday that it will premiere a new, “unconventional” weekend show hosted by comedian D.L. Hughley. “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News,” as the show is currently titled, will feature Hughley’s humorous take on the week’s events.
It will also include interviews with newsmakers and reporters, according to the network. “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News” is scheduled to debut Saturday, October 25.” (cnn.com)
CNN, the Time Warner-owned corporate media giant known for its sensational(ist) journalism, appears to have a sense of humor as well. The key for D.L., however, is to get us to think as hard as he can make us laugh. Think Jon Stewart with a closer focus on black folk. We’ll see.
