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.

    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

    I would Like to know as a disabled Veteran , as to why there was no mainstream coverage of the VETERANS march on DC today...there is no coverage of the Veteran's Day March on Wash, DC by any networks so far...including FOX and "The Blaze"

    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.

    Since no one wants to talk about Newts imorality, how about his wife? Do we want a first lady who sneaks into another womans home and carries on with her husband? I think that Calisa's moral character should be questioined. They made a song about that, (Down with OPP) If Michelle Obama had (creeping) on her resume, I quarantee Barak would not be the President. Thank you.

    I hope the audience is controlled tonight. If I wanted to hear booing and cheering, I'd go to a rally. It is not a matter of free speech either, there is free speech and there is being rude. Not everyone is privileged enough to go to the debate in person or attend a rally, so we want to hear what the candidates have to say. I want to make up my own mind, not have everyone else's view shoved down my throat.

    So the debate on Monday was a little boring, I take my citizenship obligations seriously and was not watching to be entertained. Do you go to school to be entertained or to learn? I want to make an informed decision not follow the crowd.

    MOP tried ulsscceusfulny to make a point: Democrats can ask Republicans questions....... It is not rigging it, by having a Democrat ask a question.Yes it IS rigged, if the PLANT is a Hillary Clinton operative. CNN once again failed in their alleged investigative background check.And did you notice, CNN gave more time to the gay military guy on a single topic then they gave to any of the candidates. People in the audience started booing him. This is not a pressing issue that Americans care about.CNN – Capitulation News Network
