I, too, was disappointed while searching Twitter for thought-provoking, in-depth human interest stories.

You know, we used to have news men in this country. Guys like William Raspberry and Mike Royko and back then, you had to know how to write, and hope your editor wasn't a sad sack. You got your cabbage and brought home the bacon.

Now every Tom, Dick, and Harriet has a farking keyboard and thinks they are the cat's pajamas.
You take a joint like CNN. It's a faking kindergarten playground full of moron, and whack jobs.

And yet, as this country slips into idiocracy, it's becoming entirely too easy to be taken seriously if you are a howling derp squirter.
like CNN.
Or Fox.
Or NBC
or CBS
etc etc

Less like "outrage", more like "ongoing disappoint". There was actually a time when CNN was a reasonably responsible network but that all started going down the shiatter years ago as their broadcasts became increasingly inane and riddled with errors and rampant speculation. Now, they've apparently gone the next step by trying to make stories about children being stabbed and people being raped into provocative clickbait by selling it with a knowing wink and nudge.

Not really outraged. Just confirmation that CNN, once reasonably reputable, continues to scrape hard at the bottom of the barrel to try and figure out how to get underneath it.

CNN is not a "Democrat news source".
It's a source for people that are even stupider than the people who watch FOX News.

Apparently certain expressions, such as "The answer may surprise/shock you," "Doctors HATE her," and "this one weird trick" are signs that you are a hideous assmonkey.

Also comparing horrific real life events such as being raped or stabbed multiple times to a television show is bad, and you should feel bad.

Essentially the point is, as Don Henley sang back in 1982, that news about suffering and death should not be treated as entertainment.

The "it will shock you" meme is imported from local news.  Basically it's a great indication that CNN is taking cues from exactly the wrong group.  If you want to have smart, informative news then local TV stations are exactly the WRONG model to go by.

I thought it was improvement when they got rid of Paula "I'M OUTRAGED!" Zahn, but it's got significantly worse in 2013.

The breaking bad one was tasteless but the first two weren't IMO.  Just because scumbags use phrases doesn't mean that those phrases are tasteless.  I find young girls stabbing other young girls 40 times shocking.  I don't know the reason behind it but I would imagine that it didn't justify 40 stabs so yeah it's an appropriate use of the word.

The same can be said for the rape story, it does surprise me to learn that Alaska has the highest rape statistics.  I would have figured it to be somewhere with a large metropolitan area (since crime rate increases with population density) and known crime problems such as Michigan.

I'm not out to white knight CNN because as you can probably tell I'm not a reader/viewer. It's just that I find it awfully hard to to condemn a news service for trying to get people to read the news.  Hell you could say that using baiting language to get more people to read about the abnormally high rape statistics in Alaska is a good thing.  At least the message is getting out.

It was about 10 years ago (during the '04 election it was painful how pro-Kerry they were). Now days? I don't know, as I haven't watched it. It is probably more Democrat-biased than Republican-biased, but doubt it is MSNBC levels
