"I think that we should be covering stories that can play in Peoria. It's a little bit like walking a tightrope, because you want to be smart enough for the fashion crowd but accessible enough that the average CNN viewer...will also be interested in watching." - reporter Alina Cho, explaining the, um, challenge of covering Fashion Week for CNN. Even though she has delivered impressive and intense coverage from places like North Korea, ACho wants you to know that fashion is tough news, too. Especially with all those not "smart" viewers in Peoria. Those shameful hicks!
(Note: We did not intend to make this "Rag On CNN Day," but, you know, with all the hard work they've put into earning the celebration, we have to give them their due.)
