A CNN doomsday tape? A rumour about a CNN doomsday tape was going around for a long time. It was supposedly made for the end of the world. Ted Tuner promised to his staff that CNN would be in the air until the world ends.
“We’ll be on, and we will cover the end of the world, live, and that will be our last event. We’ll play the National Anthem only one time, on the first of June [the day CNN launched], and when the end of the world comes, we’ll play ‘Nearer My God To Thee’ before we sign off”.
The last living CNN employee would press the play button and the CNN doomsday tape would be aired. Possibly for no one to see.
On januari 6 2015 a former intern Michael Ballaban released the CNN doomsday tape. The video is nearly a minute and a band is playing Nearer my gof to thee.
Is this the tape CNN had ready for doomsday?
