Wonderful experience to visit CNN studio building and have guided tour through various offices that process daily news - both home and abroad.

We didn't have a very good tour guide. There was a woman who had a daughter that was making a little noise and he asked her to leave. I'm not going to ask you again. It just set a weird tone for the rest of the tour. I'm sure it's a cool tour, ours just felt like a dud.

Enjoyed the tour however my goal was to discover how they differ in delivering the news from regular channels doing their 6PM reports. Specifically how do they handle breaking news, what qualifications do the staff possess to be employed by this organization, how do they work with getting news from other countries. Because of the brevity of the tour - 50 minutes - combined with the knowledge the tour guide had to report to next tour group, time to ask questions appeared limited. Tour guide did ask those which I was able to pose during the duration of the presentation.

This was a great behind-the-scenes tour of CNN. It was great to understand how the news is created and the domestic and international influence in the news. The CNN Center is a great place to get lunch, shop and tour. Great experience!
