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.

We are essentially in "beta mode" right now, so this is a great time to let us know what you think. You can comment on every post, so get to it.

Gotta go now, news is breaking.

    Please drop Erin Burnett's show. She is condescending, pro-wall street, and bias. She is a new low point for CNN. You will have to take her off the air anyway because I SERIOUSLY doubt if any will watch someone who is so connected to Wallstreet. That's why I never watch CNBC! To many pro-business folks who are so out of touch. The workers are not responsible for the financial crisis . . . Wallstreet is! Maybe this is the nature of CNN. News you can't trust! CNN is making a Huge Mistake promoting this women. You need to make a change! Looks like CNN is the new FOX!

She couldn't figure out what's happening even if you gave her a flashlight in the daytime! Wow CNN, who did she sleep with to get this gig?

    I agree with the other bloggers. Erin Burnett is so irritating I have to change channels. Her voice is like chalk on a blackboard. Her mannerisms are just too cutesy - they are nausea-inducing. I never thought John King was all that exciting but next to Erin, he's Mr. Charisma. There are many other females deserving of this slot – Kyra Phillips or Brooke Baldwin are two who come to mind. I'm a feminist; I want women to succeed but this gal is setting back the cause. Ah, well, I'm beginning to enjoy Chris Matthews (perhaps he could take a tranquilzer) -

    Erin Burnett! I'd love to have been in the programming strategy meeting when someone sold THIS idea. Perhaps the most oddly inappropriate choice EVER for a host. Is she just incredibly superficial? Whatever it is – PLEASE make her go away.
    She's an embarrassment to thinking women everywhere.

    Anyone hear anything about the airplane that caught on fire coming from England and had to land in Ireland?

    Oct. 21, 2011 Just heard Wolf Blitzer say President Obama has announced the end of the Iraq war. When was war declared? Didn't President Bush just do what he wanted without a Congressional vote to take the U.S. to war?

    CNN: It doesn't take much to draw in comments from the under-schooled readers who follow your offerings.
    Gross misspellings tell the whole story. But the graphics of "the storm" tell even more about your positions
    on global warming, climate change, or is it now the pending climate catastrophe? What will happen today
    and tonight in the Bering Straights and along the coastlines of Alaska and Russia has already happened more times
    than anyone can imagine since time immemorial. HL

    T minus 2 hours to Iowa Caucus, and potential GOP frontrunner, Mitt Romney is (a) involved with the $1M+ negative ads in some way OR (b) just a Boy Scout with high-spending backers that weigh the consequnces of misrepresenting the opponents' records and proceed to misrepresent anyway.

    Any who.. Not sure if any candidates would 'take charge and disavow these miscalculating backers by really being a Boy Scout and use their sound byte to direct viewers to a Fact Checking website'.

    I'd really prefer reporters to dig in to these SuperPacs, and do less trivializing of process by entertaining? us with which candidate is wearing Mom Jeans, sweater vest, or Brokeback Mtn coat.

    There is a great deal of very racist language and statements on the blog about the UNC student's murder. It is highly offensive and I am asking that it all be removed. This is truly not okay and adds nothing at all to the conversation.

    I strongly agree with President Obama's efforts to require the wealthy to be taxed accordingly. This is not how they are presently taxed. This additional revenue could be used to alleviate the dire problems facing the middle class and the working poor. Robert Brown, Windsor, ON, Canada.
