I am going to keep repeating myself until TV Network Execs finally get this:

NO ONE CARES THAT YOU WERE 17 SECONDS AHEAD OF THE OTHER MAJOR NEWS NETWORKS IN ANNOUNCING SOMETHING!!!!

We want, nay...demand  ACCURATE information, none of this bullshiat "exclusive" crap works anymore.  Accuracy is key here, not misinformation, not speculation, not useless and unfounded speculation.

Pisses me off to no end, and it is dangerous.  F*cking idiots!

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?"

You can tell that Obama and crew put the screws down on the media in general, CNN in particular.  I wasn't surprised to see every news organization this morning reporting an obvious missile strike as a "Fertilizer Factory Fire."  Just watch - tomorrow, there will be a massive pipeline fire in South Korea.  Followed by a seismic event on the island of Guam.  At that point, Mr. Obama is going to have to order another civilian attack.  Don't believe me?  Then why is it that just a few hours before the first false flag operation in Boston, we were on the verge of war with North Korea?  A war that Obama cannot afford to wage either financially or politically.  He's pulling the puppet strings and all you children are clapping with delight.  Well, just wait, maybe next week it'll be your legs finishing the race before the rest of you.

falcon176: of course the liberals are giving CNN a free pass if this was Fox News it'd be way worse


What liberals are giving them a free pass? Jon Stewart is supposedly a liberal, and this thread links to a video where he gives them anything but a "free pass."

Fark is full of liberals, and, last time I checked there were over 1500 comments ridiculing CNN in that "suspect arrested" thread alone.

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.

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.

ESPN started as an awesome joke, and is now just boring. It was never "relevant" any more than sports are ever relevant.  I am, however, sick of SportCenter and Pardon The Interruption running on repeat 12 hours a day.
