Tonight at 8pm (EDT)Paula Zahn's segment will once again focus on the changes announced by CCAA. (This information is not reflected on the CNN website but is based upon information obtained elsewhere.) I believe the source to be reliable so am choosing to post it here.
Based on the number of blogs and yahoo group entries I've read, I'm guessing her 'In Box' was more than full of notes from disappointed and often angry responses to Friday night's show. (Transcript can be read here. You'll need to scroll down quite a bit.)
I'm looking forward to watching tonight's show as reportedly she has done what was asked of her by the adoption community; she is bringing in an 'educated panel' as opposed to the 'panel' she had on Friday night. Tonight's panel is reportedly going to be made up of the following:
- someone from the Great Wall Adoption Agency
- the president of the Organization of Chinese Americans
- a Chinese journalist
- someone from either Families with Children from China (FCC) or another adoptive family organization.
Thank you CNN for listening to those of us who wrote to express our disappointment and anger. I for one am looking forward to watching tonight's show. I'm hoping to learn what I didn't on Friday. Possibly learn something new about the changes being made but also hear about those changes from a variety of knowledgeable participants at the round table.
I watched the interview and would say that I'm happy with most everything. Some people are just set in their ways whether I like it I cannot set out to change their thought process. I still did not agree with much of what Roland Martin said. I was happier with Paula Zahn and felt she did a much better job of the interview and CNN had people on the show who knew what they were talking about. I liked what Cenk Uygur said and was pleased that he admitted some of what he said had been incorrect.
Thank you CNN for listening to the 'thousands of people who wrote in' to express their disappointment and anger. You gained credibility in my eyes when you chose to address this program and correct some of the misconceptions that were portrayed Friday night.
