Re: was who owns who, now News

I know what you mean.  I used to watch CNN International for the news  since 
it brought a more non-biased view of our news, as well as news from around  
the world.  Was interesting how much they brought that we never got to  hear, 
even relating to the US....not to mention the rest of the world.  Or,  things 
that came out much later.  Unfortunately they pulled the plug on  having it as 
part of our programming.....not sure if it is just here in Houston,  or 
I REALLY miss it though, I must say.

Just  yesterday I found 30 minutes of bbc world news broadcast by one of
the PBS  stations here. Even watched it for a bit. Amazing to find there
is a world  out there! They only had 20 seconds on Michael Jackson's
trial, and several  minutes on the proliferation of very large dams in
China. It was nice to  see some different topics. I was interested to see
a piece, although not  "new" news, on the planned relocation of 2.2
million Ethiopians (I didn't  realize the total number was that large).
The soil on their farms (from 2  acres down to 1/4 acre) up in the hills
has become depleted, and even when  the rains come they can no longer
grow enough food. So the government is  relocating them to new land
(relocation is voluntary, but it's really move  or starve). The person
the BBC was profiling was very pleased with his new  land.
