Maybe CNN could find time for this in one of their overnight slots — unless they think it’s too conservative:

A mysterious TV channel praising Saddam Hussein has dropped off the airwaves just three days after it first began broadcasting.

The chairman of the so-called Saddam Channel told The Associated Press it will return by the weekend, after a technology upgrade to make the broadcast stronger.
[...]
Iraqi government officials have said they suspect the channel was run by Baathists whose political party Saddam once led.

Until the Saddam Channel returns, the more hard-line Iraqi television viewers will miss the programs they grew to love on the station: “Hangin’ With Mr. Hussein”; “What About Baghdad Bob?”; “Udays of Our Lives”; “Everybody Loves Tariq”; “Kate & Chemical Ali”; “CSI: Tikrit” and “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.”
