History[edit] Early years[edit]

CNN
CNN
International logo from 1985 to 1995.

CNN
CNN
International, in large part a result of Ted Turner's globalization ideals, began broadcasting on September 1, 1985, at first primarily broadcasting to American business travelers in hotels. The first studio for CNNI was at CNN's original studio building known as Techwood, home at that time to all of Turner Broadcasting System's channels. Today, it is home to the Turner Studios complex that houses the entertainment channels. Other early studios in Atlanta
Atlanta
were tucked away in various corners of the CNN
CNN
Center, and the newsroom lacked even a digital clock. The vast majority of the network's programming originally consisted of simulcasts of the two domestic CNN
CNN
channels (CNN/US and Headline News). In 1990, however, the amount of news programming produced by CNNI especially for international viewers increased significantly. A new newsroom and studio complex was built in 1994, as CNN
CNN
decided to compete against BBC World Service Television's news programming. CNNI emerged as an internationally oriented news channel, with staff members of various national backgrounds, even though some accusations of a pro-U.S. editorial bias persist. CNN
CNN
International was awarded the Liberty Medal
Liberty Medal
on July 4, 1997. Ted Turner, in accepting the medal on behalf of the network, said: "My idea was, we're just going to give people the facts... We didn't have to show liberty and democracy as good, and show socialism or totalitarianism as bad. If we just showed them both the way they were ... clearly everybody's going to choose liberty and democracy."[3] New international era (1995–2006)[edit]

CNN
CNN
International logo from February 1, 1995, to December 31, 2005.

In 1995, creative director Morgan Almeida defined a progressive rebranding strategy, to target CNNI's diverse global market, making the on-air look less overtly American and with a cleaner, simpler "international" aesthetic going forward. The word "International" in the channel's logo was replaced with a globe, and the new branding featured numerous international locations filmed in time-lapse, channel idents created in CGI with Velvet Design in Munich, and a news brand designed with The Attik in New York.[4] 2006–2009 revamp[edit]

CNN
CNN
International logo from January 1, 2006, to September 21, 2009.

The network undertook another major rebranding effort in 2006 overseen by the award-winning creative vision of Mark Wright and London
London
agency Kemistry. The ticker was replaced by a flipper, on-screen graphics were more unified and from October 2007 until August 2008, new studios were progressively rolled out. However, on January 1, 2009, CNN International adopted the "lower-thirds" that CNN/US had introduced a month earlier which were inspired by the clean modern design of the CNNI rebrand efforts. In the U.S., CNNI North America was distributed overnight and on weekends over the CNNfn
CNNfn
financial channel, until that channel's demise in December 2004. It is now available as a standalone, full-time channel, usually as part of digital packages of cable providers including Time Warner
Time Warner
Cable, AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS
Verizon FiOS
and Cox Communications. Going beyond borders (2009–2013)[edit] Throughout January until September 2009, CNN
CNN
International adapted more programs that became geared towards a primetime European audience with a few titled after CNN
CNN
International personalities, most notably the interview program Amanpour. On September 21, 2009, the channel launched a new tagline "Go Beyond Borders", along with a new logo, and consolidated its general newscasts (World News, CNN
CNN
Today, World News Asia, World News Europe and Your World Today) into a single newscast entitled World Report. The slogan "Go Beyond Borders" emphasizes the international perspective that gives the information in this string and the plurality of the audiences. With this tagline, CNN
CNN
also refers to the various platforms to disseminate their contents. The new image was created by the creativity and marketing department, and agency CNN Tooth & Nail. An important element of the rebrand was a new evening program that adds the broadcast of programs Amanpour
Amanpour
and World One. The makeover of CNN
CNN
International has subject to a lot of criticism on both the new prime time lineup and the redesigned graphics. On January 11, 2009, in a bid to compete directly with Al Jazeera's then English-language international channel, the network launched a new production center: CNN
CNN
Abu Dhabi, based in the United Arab Emirates. Then, CNN
CNN
International adapted half-hour shows in its schedule with a new evening prime program for Middle East
Middle East
viewers, Prism. In 2010, CNN
CNN
International launched new programs for its evening lineup in order to improve its schedule. In 2011, programs from CNN U.S. were added to the CNN
CNN
International schedule, including the talk program Piers Morgan Live
Piers Morgan Live
which was later cancelled and replaced with CNN
CNN
Tonight hosted by Don Lemon.

This is CNN
CNN
(2013–present)[edit] "This is CNN" represents CNN
CNN
International's rebrand with new sets and output in full 16:9 high definition. The "This is CNN" slogan is also used on its sister network CNN/U.S. Regional and online versions[edit] There are six variants of CNN
CNN
International:

CNN
CNN
International Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong
Hong Kong
SAR, CNN
CNN
International Europe/Middle East/Africa, based in London, United Kingdom CNN
CNN
International Latin America, based in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. CNN
CNN
International Middle East, based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates CNN
CNN
International North America, based in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. CNN
CNN
International South Asia, based in New Delhi, India

The schedules of the different regional versions no longer differ significantly from each other, but there are still minor variations such as weather updates and show airtimes - notably Amanpour, which also airs at 22.00 HK time in Asia in lieu of the first half-hour of International Desk, and 23.00 CET in Europe in addition to its original airtime. CNN
CNN
has reported that its broadcast agreement in mainland China includes an arrangement that its signal must pass through a Chinese-controlled satellite. With this method of transmission, Chinese authorities have been able to black out CNNI segments at will. CNN
CNN
has also said that its broadcasts are not widely available in mainland China, but rather only in certain diplomatic compounds, hotels, and apartment blocks.[5] In June 2015, CNN
CNN
International was made available online in the United States
United States
for CNN/U.S subscribers on participating television providers through the CNNgo service.[6] Simulcasts between CNNI and CNN/US[edit] Although dramatically scaled down since its early days, CNNI currently (as of mid 2017) draws from the feed of the main CNN
CNN
channel for all editions of Wolf, Anderson Cooper

Tonight, the first hour of weekday editions of New Day, Smerconish, the Sunday edition of Inside Politics, State of the Union, Fareed Zakaria

Investigations Unit documentaries. The ticker and timepiece of CNN/US are replaced by those of CNNI, although CNN/US's red logo on a white field is retained in the on-screen graphic (rather than replaced by CNNI's white logo on a red field), signifying CNN/US as the originating source. CNNI also simulcasts CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
newscasts whenever major events happen in the United States
United States
or around the world. Examples include the death and funeral of Ronald Reagan, the crash of Continental Airlines Flight 3407 in the Buffalo suburb of Clarence Center, the Hudson River plane landing, the attempted Christmas Day bombing of flight 253 and the death and memorial service of Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson
as well as scheduled events such as U.S. elections, Presidential inaugurations and the annual New Year's Eve ball drop from Times Square. Likewise, CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
occasionally turns to CNNI newscasts, primarily when major international news breaks during overnight hours in the U.S. A notable case was during the death of Pope John Paul II and the aftermath of the London
London
Underground bombings of July 7, 2005. CNN/U.S. simulcast CNNI coverage of the death of Pakistan's former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto
Benazir Bhutto
on the night after her assassination took place. Simulcasts also happened from November 27 to 29, 2008, due to the terror attacks in Mumbai, India, on January 4, 2009, when Israel launched strikes into Gaza, and during the early hours of January 14, 2010, due to the earthquake in Haiti. From 2005 until early 2008, CNNI's Your World Today aired on CNN/U.S.[7] during the 12–1 p.m. ET timeslot. That program was initially pre-empted by Issue #1, a program dealing in the American economic, financial, and housing sectors as part of the lead-up to the 2008 U.S. presidential election, and permanently replaced by another hour of CNN
CNN
Newsroom in September 2008. During the Atlanta
Atlanta
tornado outbreak in March 2008, CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
and CNNI simulcasted coverage after Anderson Cooper 360°
Anderson Cooper 360°
ended. That coverage ended around 12:40 a.m. EDT and the channels resumed their normal programming. Furthermore, the next day, with storms impending, CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
had to move onto CNNI's U.S. news set and weather center to avoid water from possible flooding during the storms. On January 17, 2011, CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
dropped its early morning rebroadcasts of ParkerSpitzer and Anderson Cooper 360°
Anderson Cooper 360°
during the 4–6 a.m. ET time period, and began to simulcast World Business Today and World One from CNNI in those slots. Both newscasts the only programs broadcast entirely in the 4:3 picture format on CNN/U.S.' standard-definition and high-definition feeds (the SD feed of CNN/US switched to a widescreen letterbox screen format on January 11, 2011). World One was dropped from CNN/U.S.
CNN/U.S.
just a few months later to allow the addition of an extra hour of American Morning which has been replaced with Early Start. As of August 2014, following the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, a permanent simulcast of CNNI's block of Newsroom with Rosemary Church and Errol Barnett was added to the late-night lineup of CNN/U.S., serving as a lead-in to Early Start. In late 2015, John Vause and anchor Isha Sesay

began to anchor a two-hour block of the simulcast from CNN

studios in Los Angeles.[8] Programming[edit] All news programming is replaced by features, except for the following:

High definition[edit] CNN
CNN
International HD is the high definition simulcast feed of the channel broadcasting at 1920x1080i, which was launched in September 2012. Prior to 3 June 2013, only programming from CNN
CNN
US were available natively in HD, while shows made for CNN
CNN
International were produced in 4:3 576i. In February 2013, the European SD feed of CNN International began broadcasting in widescreen by downscaling the HD feed, which resulted in all 4:3-native programming being broadcast in pillarbox until the June 3 switchover, finalising on 17 June of the same year, when the switchover was completed. In late 2010, the American CNN
CNN
channel became available in HD to viewers in Japan

under the name CNN
CNN

U.S. domestic version (both SD and HD) is also available on Greater China-based satellite service DishHD

(subsidiary of Dish Network

in U.S.). On 28 June 2016, CNN
CNN
International HD was launched for Sky customers in the UK, on channel 506 or 579, making the next news channel launch in the 600's, as it is next to the GOD Channel. Online[edit] CNN
CNN
debuted its news website CNN.com (initially an experiment known as CNN
CNN
Interactive) on August 30, 1995. The site attracted growing interest over its first decade and is now one of the most popular news websites in the world. The widespread growth of blogs, social media and user-generated content have influenced the site, and blogs in particular have focused CNN's previously scattershot online offerings, most noticeably in the development and launch of CNN
CNN
Pipeline in late 2005. In April 2009, CNN.com ranked third place among online global news sites in unique users in the U.S. according to Nielsen/NetRatings; with an increase of 11% over the previous year. CNN
CNN
Pipeline was the name of a paid subscription service, its corresponding website, and a content delivery client that provided streams of live video from up to four sources (or "pipes"), on-demand access to CNN
CNN
stories and reports, and optional pop-up "news alerts" to computer users. The installable client was available to users of PCs running Microsoft Windows. There was also a browser-based "web client" that did not require installation. In July 2007, the service was discontinued and replaced with a free streaming service. The now-defunct topical news program Judy Woodruff's Inside Politics was the first CNN
CNN
program to feature a round-up of blogs in 2005.[9] Blog
Blog
coverage was expanded when Inside Politics
Inside Politics
was folded into The Situation Room. In 2006, CNN
CNN
launched CNN
CNN
Exchange and CNN
CNN
iReport, initiatives designed to further introduce and centralize the impact of everything from blogging to citizen journalism within the CNN
CNN
brand. CNN
CNN
iReport which features user-submitted photos and video, has achieved considerable traction, with increasingly professional-looking reports filed by amateur journalists, many still in high school or college. The iReport gained more prominence when observers of the Virginia Tech shootings
Virginia Tech shootings
sent-in first hand photos of what was going during the shootings.[10] In early 2008, CNN
CNN
began maintaining a live streaming broadcast available to those who receive CNN
CNN
at home.[11] CNN
CNN
International is broadcast live, as part of the RealNetworks
RealNetworks
SuperPass subscription outside the U.S. CNN
CNN
also offers several RSS
RSS
feeds and podcasts. On April 18, 2008, CNN.com was targeted by Chinese hackers in retaliation for the channel's coverage on the 2008 Tibetan unrest. CNN reported that they took preventative measures after news broke of the impending attack.[12][13] The company was honored at the 2008 Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards for development and implementation of an integrated and portable IP-based live, edit and store-and-forward digital newsgathering system. On October 24, 2009 CNN
CNN
launched a new version of the CNN.com website, revamping it adding a new "sign up" option where users may create their own user name, a new " CNN
CNN
Pulse" (beta) feature along with a new red color theme.[14] However, most of the news archived on the website has been deleted. CNN
CNN
also has a channel in the popular video-sharing site YouTube, but its videos can only be viewed in the United States, a source of criticism among YouTube
YouTube
users worldwide. In April 2010, CNN
CNN
announced via Twitter

its upcoming food blog called "Eatocracy," in which it will "cover all news related to food – from recalls to health issues to culture."[15] CNN

has defended CNN
CNN
International's "international" perspective, saying "No matter what CNN

people are going to say, well, it's an American service. But the reality is that it's an international service based in the United States, and we don't make any apologies about that."[20] Accusations of anti- Israel
Israel
bias[edit] In 2002, Honest Reporting spearheaded a campaign to expose CNN
CNN
for pro-Palestinian bias, citing public remarks in which Ted Turner equated Palestinian suicide bombing with Israeli military strikes.[21] On November 18, 2014, a misleading headline was posted by CNN. Two Palestinian terrorists had entered a synagogue with knives and a gun, killing four Jewish worshippers and wounding seven. The headline stated instead that two Palestinian were killed by Israeli police, thus equating the perpetrators of the massacre of Jews with the killing of the armed terrorists. The headline failed to mention the four Jews who were murdered in this 2014 Jerusalem
Jerusalem
synagogue attack. CNN
CNN
stated that the attack occurred at a mosque, when in fact the synagogue was attacked, compounding the bias.[22][23][24] Accusations of pro-American bias[edit] CNN
CNN
is one of the world's largest news organizations, and its international channel, CNN
CNN
International is the leading international news channel in terms of viewer reach.[25][26] Unlike the BBC and its network of reporters and bureaus, CNN
CNN
International makes extensive use of affiliated reporters that are local to, and often directly affected by, the events they are reporting. The effect is a more immediate, less detached style of on-the-ground coverage. This has done little to stem criticism, largely from Middle Eastern nations, that CNN
CNN
International reports news from a pro-American perspective. This is a marked contrast to domestic criticisms that often portray CNN
CNN
as having a "liberal" or "anti-American" bias. Accusations of anti- China
China
bias[edit] A Chinese website, anti-cnn.com,[27] has accused CNN
CNN
and western media in general of biased reporting against China, with the catchphrase "Don't be so CNN" catching on in the Chinese mainstream as jokingly meaning "Don't be so biased". Pictures used by CNN
CNN
are allegedly edited to have completely different meanings from the original ones. In addition, the channel was accused of largely ignoring pro-China voices during the Olympic Torch Relay debacle in San Francisco. On July 7, 2010, Octavia Nasr, senior Middle East
Middle East
editor and a CNN journalist for 20 years, was fired after she expressed admiration on her Twitter
Twitter
account for a militant Muslim cleric and former Hezbollah leader who had recently died.[28] Accusations of propaganda and censorship[edit] In October 2011, Amber Lyon
Amber Lyon
claimed to the Syrian government news agency SANA that she had been directed by CNN
CNN
to report selectively, repetitively, and falsely in order to sway public opinion in favor of direct American aggression against Iran
Iran
and Syria,[29] and that this was common practice under CNN. She subsequently repeated this claim, addressing the degraded state of journalistic ethics in an interview[30][citation needed] during which she also discussed the Bahraini episode, suggesting paid-for content was also taken from Georgia, Kazakhstan, and other states, that the War on Terrorism
War on Terrorism
had also been employed as a pretext to pre-empt substantive investigative journalism within the U.S., and that following the Bahrain reporting, her investigative department had been terminated and "reorganized", and her severance and employee benefits used as a threat to intimidate and attempt to purchase her subsequent silence. Lyon claimed to have met with Tony Maddox, president of CNN International, twice about this issue in 2011 and had claimed that during the second meeting she was threatened and intimated to stop speaking on the matter.[31] CNN
CNN
issued a detailed response to Lyon's claims about its coverage of Bahrain.[32] Lyon also claimed on the Russian news channel RT that CNN
CNN
reporters, headed by Maddox, have been instructed to over-cover Iran
Iran
as a form of propaganda, and that CNN
CNN
International has been paid by the Bahraini government to produce and air news segments intentionally painting them in a positive light.[citation needed] See also[edit]
