Lookup on cnn.com reveals a response of 4 name servers:


All 4 of these are in AS 1673.

This situation has existed for a long time. CNN has their actual servers 
multihomed, and (I think) uses Akamai for content delivery. However, the 
core name servers remain on a single AS, so any routing problem within that 
AS, or peering issues affecting that AS will result in CNN.COM disappearing.

they'll fix it eventually. for the exceedingly thick-headed, experience is
the only way to learn.
