CNN says it's in a "category of one" among television news networks delivering unbiased news.
Meeting with advertisers Tuesday during the midst of a ratings free-fall on its flagship network, CNN's leadership said it is staying the course in emphasizing its journalism.
The reassurance may be necessary. The Nielsen Co. says CNN's weekday, prime-time viewership was down 42 percent the first three months of the year from 2009.
CNN U.S. President Jon Klein said that based on a format of credible, nonpartisan news, CNN is "alone in a category of one."
