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

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

I'm also confused about this.


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.

It's humiliating that the only news channel left is Al Jazeera America.  All the rest have turned into entertainment channels.  I mean really, WTF?  Even the weather channel is mostly fluff.

Begoggle: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Democrat news source keep putting their foot in their mouth. Republican politicians keep putting their foot in their month

advantage Democrats

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


Fox News is for Right Wingers
MSNBC is for Left Wingers
CNN is for people who feel that the USA Today Infographics are not colorful enough

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.

24 hours news networks are inane pieces of garbage, this is incredibly annoying.

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