We don’t know what impact the advent of drones will have on public relations, but CNN, it’s clear, will be helping us find out. The cable news network has”entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRDA) with the Federal Aviation Administration to advance efforts to integrate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into news gathering and reporting.”

“Our aim,” CNN adds, "is to get beyond hobby-grade equipment and to establish what options are available and workable to produce high quality video journalism using various types of UAVs and camera setups…”

Well, at least they won’t be able to ask questions, we don’t think.
