Explaining global news to a global audience: This is the mission of CNN 10, a 10-minute news show that appears as a daily digital video on CNN.com.
CNN 10 replaced CNN Student News, the network’s longest-running show that first aired in 1989. CNN 10 serves an audience interested in compact on-demand news broadcasts - either on the go or in the classroom. The show’s priority is to identify stories of international significance and clearly describe why they’re making news, who is affected, and how the events fit into a complex, international society. The show maintains a neutral position on controversial topics. It seeks to provide multiple viewpoints, clear illustrations, and general overviews instead of graphic descriptions.
