CNN is okay if your idea of keeping up on the news stops at how fat Kim Kardashian's butt has gotten or how much probation did the latest judge give Lilo.

yeah, running those photos was a special kind of stupid.

We were arguing those same photos yesterday on Fark.  In some thread down there.


Yes, but Fark is not news...

Really, you could pick out many news sources yesterday at 1:45pm doing the same thing.

to be fair FOXNews jumped the gun too but for reason they are getting no where the heat CNN is getting. I wonder why.

The left have CNN targeted because that's MSNBC's ratings competition. They'll never catch Fox.

No one really cares about Fox News because everyone not in on the circlejerk has realized what they are.

Magnanimous_J: CNN has been on a roll lately. Did anyone else read the article that announced that Chi Cheng, the original bassist for the deftones, died after 5 years in a coma? They misspelled the band name and posted a picture of the NEW bassist and said it was Chi (the only pic in the article). The metalheads in the comments were losing their shiat.


I was one of those commenters. And yeah, I totally lost my shiat.
 
2013-04-18 02:12:45 PM
There is some pretty serious hatred of CNN over the past couple of days.  Certainly on the front page of Fark.  How many headlines have their name?

I think it's time to make a simple consilidation thread, so we can all complain in one place.

hey, Jean Claude Van Damme is totally believable as an american.  He did it several times.  Totally pulled it off in Street Fighter, Universal Soldier, Bloodsport, and something else where he gurgled unintelligibly and kicked things.  Without a hat, not with.
 
2013-04-18 02:17:26 PM
Between  subby giving away the main punchline in the headline, and Comedy Central giving away the other big joke in the caption below the video, the major humorous impact of this whole segment was completely spoiled.

People should learn from stage illusionists: DON'T GIVE AWAY THE SECRET IT SPOILS THE TRICK.

Doofuses.

killershark: epyonyx: darth_badger: Please keep Wolf Blitzer out of the literbox that is now the news.

I like how after the bombing Wolfie asked a runner if he'll be back next year. I have never wanted to punch someone in the face harder.

That doesn't bother me so much, although that may be because I watched part of Chris Cuomo's patronizing interview with the grandmother of one of the victims. Apparently CNN is warping my view of what is considered news.


Reminds me of Geraldo Rivera in New Orleans as Katrina approached, asking residents in the process of evacuating how they felt about the impending devastation of their city.

I wish just one person had had the presence of mind to tell him on camera, in response to that question:

"How do we feel? How do we feel? Lemme see if I can put this in a way that you'd understand. Hmmmm― okay, got it.

"Imagine that you're standing in front of a large brick wall, and in that wall is embedded a massive solid steel door that's locked and hasn't been opened in years. You manage to open that door, and inside is nothing but dust and refuse and darkness and emptiness.

"Oh, and a Coke® bottle.

"And then it occurs to you: you still have about ¾ hour of prepaid major network prime time airtime to fill.

"Does that give you some idea of how we feel, Mister Rivera?"

The big story is still that 3 people are dead and 180 people are injured.

CNN said that someone was in custody, then shortly thereafter they said nobody was in custody. Yes, they jumped the gun a bit but DOES IT REALLY MATTER? How did their error affect the lives of any sane human being? Were you huddled under your couch in fear until CNN said they had someone is custody, then you went outside thinking it was safe only to go rushing back home? It's not like they completely made it up, they had some sources which turned out to be wrong and they corrected it. That's what happens during live events.

This should be a blip of a story at best.

What we need is an organization that just reports the news.  No commentary, no opinion, no breaking news that hasn't been verified because they wanted to be the first to run with it.  Just report the f*cking news objectively.  I can think for myself, and form my own opinions.

I'm a liberal and I've been calling them idiots and complaining for about a year now.  So shadup.

Plus.. if you think CNN is liberal I have some bridges for you cheap!  I made $400 yesterday on tolls!

I'm watching baseball, but flipping around during the commercials. I stumbled upon one of CNN's reporters who said (while interviewing a Bostonian) that he knows what it's like to be from a similar area. "I'm from Philadelphia, and it is Anglo and Irish-Catholic there, too."

I will probably have black-eyes from facepalming so hard tomorrow. About 15 minutes ago if anyone has it on DVR.

Jon Stewart's Daily Show is on the comedy channel.  Think you missed the comedy channel part.

Therion: jake_lex: The New York Post is probably grateful that the cavalacade of fail on CNN the past few days has taken the heat off them.

Not quite - New York Post continues on its spree of ruining the lives of dark skinned people who happened to be in the crowd at the Boston Marathon


Isn't the New York Post also the one that had the editorial about how suspicious it is so many media outlets have been "ignoring" the abortion clinic case, when they themselves have never had an article about it before that editorial (and most other news sources had, just mostly a year or two ago when it first broke).

The depressing thing is, when something's going on and I turn on the TV looking for a news report, the only station (out of the 600+ on my cable) that consistently has any news reporting going on is CNN.  Maybe it's time to give up on this "TV" thing.

//when I was kid there was no constantly available news either, but then we could only pick up 7 channels.

theorellior: CNN is the Manos: The Hands of Fate of news outlets.


So I'm watching it on the MST3000, and I haven't seen it for 10 to 15 years or so when I lived in Denver.  I totally had no clue that it was filmed where I live now (El Paso/Las Cruces).  It opens on the Historic Drive in El Paso, it hasn't changed much.

Cool.

I hate news channels that 1) Lie and 2) are Sensationalistic.

Pretty much covers CNN, MSNBC, and Fox at this point.

I am not sure I would care about Fox's slant if their coverage was not slanted.  Facts aren't supposed to go away if you close your eyes and say "You're not there! You're not there!" which seems to be what Fox does every day now.

CNN has turned into the idiotic amateur journalism channel (they hire hacks like Erin Burnett) and they're more interested in Justin Beiber news instead of having anything in depth.  Plus they fire reporters (like Solidad O'Brien) who dare to actually ask probing questions to someone in power.

NightOwl2255: GiantRex: SnakeLee: No, they're much worse than that. They're the Human Centipede 2 of news at the very least

The Serbian Film of news?

A friend told me about Serbian Film. Read the synopsis on IMDB. I have a rule, I never watch a movie that has the line "newborn porn" in it.


Then I'll go ahead and tell you the worst part about that scene.
Yep, it really happens with all the blood and umbilical cord.  It's clear what's going on and the sound of what is happening is hugely disturbing.  But that isn't the worst thing.  For maybe two seconds, the mother looks down smiling and is clearly turned on.
You're welcome!
