True.  And it is possible that those CNN anchors might not realize that
Time Warner is a cable operator, especially if their own cable bills
don't have TW written across the top.  (Who does provide cable service
for Atlanta and its suburbs, anyways?)

Besides, I'd think most people would agree that editorial independence
from one's parent company in a news organization is a good thing, even
something that should be encouraged...
