CNN’s Rick Sanchez took the #CNNfail criticism head-on this afternoon, in a segment at the end of his 3pmET hour. “There have been some questions raised on Twitter as to whether we covered any of the events enough over the weekend,” said Sanchez. “Frankly, it’s a compliment that you expected us to cover it more than our competitors, and we did.”

Sanchez pointed to his program as a model for the way the news world has changed: “News-gathering as we long have discovered on this particular show is becoming a collective pursuit, and we welcome that.”
