CNN Teams up With Crony-Backed Media in Myanmar

Myanmar is set to have its first modern all-news television channel. Its designers are CNN and a local crony.
 
Back in 2011, the United States Campaign for Burma (USCB), a lobby group from America, asked the U.S. government to impose sanctions against 42 people who allegedly supported the military junta regime in Myanmar. They argued that generals, their families and cronies reap massive profits from a bevy of industries and save them in offshore accounts.
 
The list included bigwigs from banks, mining companies, construction and trade businesses.
