I suspect CNN was hoping to see some images of passengers making campfires in the empty hot tubs, using wood they scrounged from the upscale deck chairs on the suite balconies, and roasting the rats they caught down on deck 2 because no other food was available.
Perhaps Carnival should rethink their default use of CNN on public TVs aboard the ships.
They use CNN because its FREE, not Carnival-friendly.
They also edit for content. I was cruising when the 22 passengers were attacked and robbed in Mexico. I know the story was all over CNN, but not a peep about it all week long on the "ships version" of CNN.
No cruises booked at this time.
Now, This is a Bad Cruise..
It's got to be so tough for all onboard, passengers and crew....they are so close to port..showers, a bed, and a real bathroom, will look good.
Not to belittle what the passengers have gone through but based on the pictures I've seen a lot worse. Tornado disasters, hurricanes like Katrina and Sandy. On a severity scale those would be 10 and this is about a 3.
I do wish all well and that they all get home to their loved ones safe and sound.

Actually, I'd say CNN has been relatively even-handed, especially compared with NBC. Now that the ship is close enough to shore to interview actual passengers, they are starting to get out the REAL picture of what it was like on board.
I'm TomS, and I approved this message.
Okay if they are going to show pictures why not show pictures of the people in balcony rooms? This just goes to show you the advantage of booking a balcony room. Just open that door and let that ocean breeze come in. Yes there is some good in just about everything when it comes to cruising.
