CNN, long an innovator in utilizing new technology to record and transmit video reports from remote and dangerous locations, made news gathering history last night when it used Skype to get a live transmission of CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin who was in Hawaii with no access to a satellite upload location.
Toobin was a classmate of Elliot Spitzer at Harvard Law School, so his reaction to the scandal was much in demand by his producers at CNN. A screen shot provided by CNN is below. TVNewser has more on this story.
Klein also spoke about the considerable ratings climb his network has been enjoying recently.
Klein was a panelist at the McGraw Hill Media Summit in Manhattan. Beet.TV will have some more reports from the conference.
