Today, I stopped by cnn.com and got the last bit of confirmation that perhaps even their own editors are unaware of contradictory content. Today was not the first time.
One story claimed that businesses were not even looking for credit, while another claimed that getting credit was still difficult. So, which is it?
I don't watch CNN so I am not sure about the stories you mention, but what you described isn't necessarily contradictory. Credit may be difficult to get because the banks are being tight, and yet at the same time, businesses may not be looking for credit if they think that the economy is still too sluggish.
But if CNN has a lot of celebrity coverage, I would abandon it too. I generally don't watch television news because there is so much fluffy stuff. Plus the news reporting tends to be more shallow than can be found in print coverage. I find the internet news aggregators, such as Yahoo News or Google News, are a more efficient way to get informed. The down side is that I miss some of the riveting video footage which is shown on TV.

Take a look at BBCnews.com. Less about celebrities amd more about global issues.
I think the BBC does a better job covering international news than any of the US news outlets. The Christian Science Monitor sometimes has good coverage, but they are a much smaller operation than the BBC, so their coverage is more spotty.
