This is 'This Just In'

You're reading "This Just In," CNN's new news blog.

You’ll find all the breaking news of the day here, from big stories like earthquakes and elections to interesting notes on the naming of the world’s richest man and Charlie Sheen’s return to his sitcom.

There’ll be posts from yours truly and the staff of CNN at large to give you the latest from the CNN Wire, plus the scoops and interviews and insight that make this a really fun and interesting place to be. You’ll know when we have live streams of events and videos of news can be posted within minutes of them coming in. Whatever confirmed information we're hearing and reporting is what you'll be reading and watching.

We aim to look far and wide at what you and the rest of the Web community are interested in and talking about with features like Web Pulse - which takes a look at the collective conversation of the internet according to Google trends, Twitter, etc. This is also the place to find out who the day’s Most Intriguing People are and there’s easy access to our Twitter account @cnnbrk.

Gotta go now, news is breaking.

    Sadly, there just was not sufficient evidence for a guilty verdict for murder. The jurors are most unhappy and I agree – they did not say she was innocent, just not guilty.

    the jurors are having second thoughts- golly gee- 10 hours of deliberation- no notes- no questions all they wanted to do was get out of there= these folks are the worst of the worst- they and Casey will be forever together- I hope the little girl visits them in their dreams

    The only reason Casey was found not guilty was that Jose Baez LIED and CHEATED. His opening statement was done on purpose. Baez should be held accountable for this verdict. He is a Liar and a cheater.

    The Democraps are blaming everyone but themselves for the mess we are in. They are the ones that stole social security during the Johnson years and created Fanny and Freddie ruled but Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. No one seems to talk about them being the ones that brought down the economy.All I hear is, "It's George Bush's Fault". I guess there of plenty of uneducated liberals that believe that.

      repeating an untruth over and over, even when done in an orchestrated display like what we have been enduring from the right wing or Republicans, does not make it a truth. and when the same words are used in lockstep by so many it is an obvious lie of misinformation. please go bother your neighbor or kick a big rock. or just go away.

    We're all done with the dems and repubs that only give lip service. It is truly time for a change if you can't get spending in line and balance. We know you won't do it, but this will fuel the fire for what will come. It is time for you all to get out in the real world and earn your living.

    What was wrong with Simpson/Bowles if the President had been willing to lead just a little. We need real spending cuts, not refiguring, but revenue enhancement needs to be part of the solution, as well. Fair, even-handed, but a real change from "business as usual".

    Flat tax rate no matter what you earn is the way to go. This gives kids incentive to study hard in school and work hard. If we punish the hard working successful people in this country by making them give away their money, why should they continue to work hard? We need spending cuts and a balanced budget. If the "rich" hard workers sell their assets and leave this country, who is going to pay for free lunch for kids(who have smart phones and i pods), free health care for kids, medicaid, food stamps(for people who can still afford booze and smokes), charter schools for disadvantaged kids etc. Support our troops and defense for our country which is what "all" citizens, not just the "hard-working rich" should pay for. Who is going to support this country when the business owners and rich leave?

    What we see is the sad spectacle of the GOP held hostage to the tea party nuts. The GOP leaders appears as clown masters, where the clowns are now running the show. Boehner and McConnell should reflect on what brought them to this sorry state, because they are the ones responsible for it.
