Letter: CNN cameras on the roof

Sir: Bob Graham's article from Atlanta (6 July) stated that CNN plans to broadcast live coverage of the Olympics, using a camera site on the roof of Pauly D's Bar. This is categorically not true.

CNN will use the roof of Pauly D's Bar, as well as many other locations, throughout Atlanta, as a backdrop to report the news of the Games. We are aware of, and fully respect, the broadcasting agreements between the International Olympic Committee and the companies that have bought the rights.
