The AP Editor seems to realize that they will probably make a mistake sometime, too, and that the mocking should be left to The Daily Show, which will enjoy this tonight.

Can we taunt them for misuse of "it's"?


I see this has been covered. Carry on.

Please, immediately, stop taunting on social networks about CNN and others' SCOTUS ruling mistake and the AP getting it right.

Is this the sliest passive-aggressive mocking ever?

Fox News Dynamite Monkies can be terribly unpredictable. Never taunt them.

Good idea.
CNN is the Happy Fun Ball of news organizations.

To be fair, the big reason people have trouble respecting CNN is that they don't really do anything to merit respect.

Did it happen early enough to make tonight's show? They're normally 1 day behind the news cycle.

They tape at something like 5 PM, so no problem there.

unlikely: To be fair, the big reason people have trouble respecting CNN is that they don't really do anything to merit respect.


One day I'm going to jot down all the problems I have with CNN and write a screed about it. They are unbelievably dumb -- and incompetent -- on every possible journalistic level, and cater to the lowest common denominator at all times.

Don't worry, AP. We'll do the taunting for you.

Seriously, you expect it from Fox News, but CNN has just been absolutely awful on breaking-news coverage the past few years.

An appropriate question is was the AP simply correct in posting an early upheld article is this a taunt about being early? Because if the AP posted a story early, they happened to post the right one, they were not correct.

CNN deserves nothing but mockery. It's difficult to put into words the blend of bullshiat they have been peddling. Infotainment, endless use of Twitter and social media, stories about animals, stories about idiots, stories about nothing, trying way too hard (AC360? He's a journalist not a game console), everything about their network is...

It's like the "Mom sending you emails of captioned cat pictures" of news organizations. And today mom said "check out these cats" and didn't realize all of the animals were dogs. They can't farking do anything right.

farkk CNN and Fox. Maybe they'll learn to slow down and check the facts before they rush to report something. They both deserve the taunting.
 
2012-06-28 04:23:38 PM
Does anyone honestly think every major news outlet didn't already have 2-3 possible outcomes drawn up, edited and formatted files waiting to be put on their site? In the age of twitter, they have to be able to put one up within minutes, or they risk being scooped. They'll make generic stories and work on updating them, rather than making a full story later on.

In this case, the only difference between CNN and every other news outlet was that CNN's webmaster used the wrong file.

Anyone who gets their news from Fox or CNN deserves to be misled.

I think they cater to Americans is what we're looking for....

I want you to know that you're farkied as "Ron Paul: Jay Buhner and a sandwich to be named later". That line (about what the GOP primary delegate count was a few months ago). That phrase still makes me giggle far more than it should.

CNN is a parody of what they once were. i've lost all respect, and i don't even toss them a wipe-up towel when i'm done.

What was WhoIsWillo's other comment that got removed. People are saying it's brilliant, but it's gone. Link? Summary?
