    How news organizations are trying to get people to talk, and listen, to each other after the election

    Amanda Wills devoted much of the past year to coverage of the presidential election. So when she listened to voicemails left for CNN after Nov. 8, she expected to hear a lot of screaming from both sides.

    Cable news juggles Brexit drama and Clinton-Warren lovefest

    Cable news started its week with an abundance of live riches and a quandary: Cover Britain's exit or Elizabeth Warren's arrival?

    In the end, CNN, Fox and MSNBC initially offered a bit of a video buffet, at least until their final preference for a Warren-Hillary Clinton coming out in Cincinnati was clear — and leaving C-SPAN2 to satisfy those viewers with a more international news craving.
