ATLANTA, Georgia (
The Adobo Chronicles) – If the world’s a stage, then the spotlight shouldn’t all be focused on America. Media giant CNN and Baseball’s World Series are both relocating their headquarters abroad.
In a stunning announcement today, CNN says it is laying off all of its personnel in the International Desk based in Atlanta, all in the spirit of globalization. The 24-hour news cable pioneer has finally realized that news happens in other parts of the world, not just in the U.S. So it has decided to move its International Desk abroad, specifically London and Hong Kong. This way, reporters will not be gathering the news via their computers inside their cubicles.
Just minutes after the CNN announcement, America’s Major League Baseball (MLB) told The Adobo Chronicles that it, too, has decided to abandon its headquarters in Jamestown, New York, and move its operations to Beijing, China.
For many years now, MLB has been criticized for calling its championship series, “The World Series,” when, in fact, it was more of a North American Series, involving only teams from the U.S. and Canada.
Part of MLB’s restructuring would be to open the World Series to baseball teams from all over the world so that it can be true to the name given to the championship game.
Will the Miss Universe Organization now consider moving its headquarters to the International Space Station or Mars?
