CNN has realized that the only time anyone actually watches is when they make a horrible error of some kind. Expect to see a lot more.

No doubt about that.

Wow, that's tasteless. They should have played something thoughtful, like Metallica's "Seek and Destroy"
 
2012-08-06 08:53:11 PM  
"Nice Shot Man"

They missed their chance to double down on the tastelessness with a fail in religion with "Rockin' The Casbah."

Can someone please fire the 13 year old that's in charge of CNN's bumper music?
 
2012-08-06 08:59:17 PM  
e) run a series of 7-11, Subway, and cab service commercials.

CNN can't not be terrible for even a second, can they?
 
2012-08-06 09:07:42 PM  
Perhaps the theme from Taxi..Being both mellow and subtlety comedic it would have worked..
 
2012-08-06 09:10:38 PM  
Here's a thought, why are they playing any music period, why not play Breaking the Law.
 
2012-08-06 09:11:41 PM  
If Ted were still in charge he would have gone down to the studio and fired everyone.

I thought it was weird that CNN would play Iron Maiden until I saw it was Billy Joel.

And if you know that Palmer's already a Thing, it makes that line all the more funny... and scary.

Naw, he wouldn't-he had the Titanic's exit tune "Nearer My God To Thee" cued up in case of nuclear war Link

stop linking to News Busters, they use a farking video copilot after effects template for their intro

It's called "Working the Ref". The more they crow about liberal bias the more news organizations bend over backwards to appear "balanced", as if objective fact didn't exist, only shades of partisan ideology.

And I'm not sure how making clueless music choices qualifies as liberal bias.
 
2012-08-06 09:43:13 PM  
Subby, you're a moran.
FTFA: After about a six minute discussion, the program cut to a commercial break. Upon return, viewers were greeted with Billy Joel:

Non-story is non-story.

/CNN does suck, though.

Lunatic Fringe would be apropos, but Faux News wouldn't do that.

Hey, after seven years of retarded links, they finally have a somewhat legitimate complaint. Let's just give the little mongoloids some credit.

CNN could have just gone all in on the derp and played "I Hope You Die." Bloodhound Gang FTW.

I'd say somebody at CNN is trying to get fired, but seriously... who actually WATCHES CNN enough to notice?
 
2012-08-06 09:53:53 PM  
When did hating on CNN become the next great internet meme? Did people get tired of bashing Fox News and went looking for a new target?
 
2012-08-06 09:58:38 PM  

consider this: When did hating on CNN become the next great internet meme? Did people get tired of bashing Fox News and went looking for a new target?


CNN is just loud and dumb. Not quite as dumb as Fox, but still dumb. The webpage is fine, but the channel just missing girls and loud noises.
