CNN International has cancelled Diplomatic License, a weekly program focusing on the United Nations.
“CNN has decided to cancel Diplomatic License,” clearly disappointed host Richard Roth told viewers last weekend. “Next week will be our last program. We invite you to send us your comments either way, disappointment or good riddance.” He repeated the e-mail address, Diplomatic.License@CNN.com, twice.
“We have been on CNN for twelve and a half years with great freedom offered by CNN management, and next week it will all come to an end,” Roth said, adding: “Where is the committee to protect shows when you need one?”
“With a combative U.S. UN rep, Security Council resolutions dealing with the prospect of a nuclear Iran, and UN peacekeepers dying in Haiti, you could make a very strong case that the world needs UN news, and that CNN needs to provide it,” an equally disappointed CNN staffer remarked to TVNewser. “I guess Ted Turner‘s network’s internationalism is officially dead.”
