Coolest dad ever - A dad in Reno had a lot of snow in his backyard and apparently a lot of time on his hands. He spent more than 50 hours building a two-story snowman complete with a slide for his kids and their friends.
Don't quit your day job - There's a new get-rich-quick scheme out there, and all you need is a camera and a computer. Partner up with YouTube and toss some ads on that snoring cat video and you just might make millions. CNN's Jason Caroll shows you how.
TV the old-fashioned way - CNN opens its archives to give you a rare glimpse at how the sausages are made. It's tough to picture how a network made the jump to 24-hour news when even creating a simple graphic was such an arduous task.

It's Libyan leader Gaddafi, not Egyptian leader Gaddafi. Change your picture caption, don't encourage people who think American's don't know geography
...or appropriate use of apostrophes :)
Hey he's not getting paid to write is he? CNN can do better if they want to be "professionals."

Perhaps not, but he is lecturing about not spreading misinformation, and using improper grammar and/or spelling does precisely that.
apparently the don't know grammar either...you didn't need an apostrophe in "americans"
... and you need a y at the end of the Ben.
I think really that should be cause for someone losing their job. Egypt? Really? *facepalm*
While we're piling on, the guy's name is "Muammar Gaddafi", not "Moammar Gadhafi".
That is a matter of applying his name to the Latin alphabet which involves some interpretation, not so in the case of the country he is dictator of.
Actually, in Arabic the first letter of his name, qoph, is pronounced as a "k" sound and usually transliterated as a "q." Likewise, the second letter of his name, thal, is pronounced as a deep "d" or "th" ("the" not "with") and transliterated "dh." Given these standardized spellings, the Libyan leader's name should be spelled "Qadhafi."

More Qadaffi bashing. It just goes on and on. Such right-wing biased reporting which goes to show just how much the MIC has gotten control of the press!
Not to mention the fact that this is the least amusing autotune video ever. Only redeeming quality is that blond dancing.
Good point, but grammar is one thing... But getting the wrong leader (if you call him that) of a country on a world wide news site, especially of a story this magnitude, is just insane!
Amezing video I have seen ever....
