Anastacya: ikanreed: Anastacya: 'Lil Kim?

Sorry, I have no idea what you're talking about, and I feel like, for once, that's a good thing.

*sigh*. Kim Jong-Un. That is the N. Korean method of dealing with criminals/traitors/people they dont like anymore...


Oh, right, the thing I said about killing their whole families.  Right.  Sorry.

Anyone sad about there not being a new #TrueDetective on tonight can take comfort in the hopelessness & nihilism of tonight's #SuperBowl

Egoy3k: 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.


If CNN is aiming to be the very lowest common denominator, the kindergarten of news media, that's a valid niche, but it's still painful to observe. I'm not really sure that you can trick people into watching news though, if there's not enough fluff or sensationalism they're just going to turn it off in 10 seconds.

Chasing shiatty catchphrases with shiatty reporting is at least thematically consistent, so bravo to CNN I guess.

vudukungfu: 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


back in the good ol days, it was tom, dick, and harry. harriet was making the coffee.

ikanreed: ReapTheChaos: Who the fark cares? If you don't like the way they tweet, kill them all, and their families for 3 generations don't follow them. It's really that farking simple.

But, seriously, you're right: boycott 24 news channels.  They do more harm than good.


yeah ill just call up my cable provider and tell them there are certain channels i dont want to pay for so thOH WAIT THE BUSINESS MODEL MAKES THEM IMMORTAL.

/f-ers.

Alaska is first in raping women!  Hell, it beats wrestling grizzly bears.

I think CNN is pretty much on the same track they started some 20 years ago.

Egoy3k: thamike: Can someone explain the outrage?  Not the Why, but the What.

I'm also confused about this.


Really? It's not obvious why people would be bothered by a news outlet opportunistically turning people's horrific tragedies into tweets designed to entice people to click through so they can maximize ad revenue? It's shamefully obtuse to write a story about a teenage girl being raped and have as the foremost thought on your mind: "Hmm... If I give away the punchline in this tweet, fewer people will click the link."

What's weird is not that people are bothered by it, it's that they're acting like it's new and somehow beneath the standards of CNN.

I guess the irony is lost on them--they are only outraged because the news media have taught them over the years that blind, shocked outrage is always the first reaction they should have.
