Letter: CNN in Belgrade

Sir: Robert Fisk's article "Taken in by the Nato line" (29 June) offers speculation instead of accurate, fair reporting. To suggest that CNN was the only media organisation to know that Nato had targeted Serbian television headquarters is simply wrong. This was common knowledge several days beforehand among the media in Belgrade and even among Yugoslav authorities.

Debacle as CNN cancels Gore show

THE 24-HOUR cable news network, CNN, was forced into an embarrassing climbdown on Thursday night over an invitation to the US Vice-President, Al Gore, to stand in for the talkshow host Larry King. The network withdrew the invitation at the last minute, following objections from senior Republicans and some members of its own staff. Mr King, complete with his trademark braces, was hauled from a black-tie dinner in New York to present the show only an hour before it went on the air.

Gingrich risks right's ire to keep Speaker's post

With a slimmer waistline, a rousing speech to the conservative activists who once adored him and a virtually mandatory appearance on Larry King's television talk show, Newt Gingrich is making perhaps his final effort to avoid being tossed out as Speaker by his own Republican party.

Obituary: Willis Conover

For tens of millions of short-wave radio listeners around the world, the best-known voice in the English language was neither that of an actor or a politician, but the slow, deep tones of the Voice of America's jazz broadcaster and musicologist Willis Conover.

The 'unambitious' billionaire

Ross Perot, the billionaire who took 19 per cent of the vote in the 1992 US presidential election, insisted that his new Reform Party was not driven by his personal ambition. But his appearance on CNN's Larry King Live show, where he announced his intention to run four years ago, heightened speculation that he would enter the 1996 race.

What can the Duchess do?

l Renegotiate her Budgie the Helicopter deals. The book, TV and merchandise royalties were originally thought to have been highly lucrative deals which would eventually be worth around pounds 8m (Sleepy Kids, the production company which bought the serialisation rights, reportedly saw a 15.5 per cent rise in its profits for the first half of 1995 thanks to Budgie). They have so far failed to yield the Duchess even pounds 1m. Undeterred, she was in New York as recently as December 1995 to drum up publicity for a new line of Budgie toys and accessories; the problem seems to be that her link with many Budgie products is much more tenuous than had been realised. For instance, of the 13 episodes of the television series broadcast in 1994, only one was based on a story by the Duchess.
