Oh weird, is the World Cup happening? I totally hadn't noticed. Thanks, CNN!

But will they find the Malaysian Airliner at the World Cup final?

When (disgraced/suspended) California State Senator Leland Yee was arrested on charges of corruption and gun running, CNN had absolutely no coverage of it.
They later commented it was not "newsworthy".

Up yours CNN

CNN is no different from Fox news. It's a for profit new company that doesn't want to ruffle corporate donor feathers or report actual news. It wants to digest AP bits, throw down Human Interest stories, and tell viewers whatever is going to make them tune in.

CNN International did cover that story from what I recall seeing here abroad. Sad that USA-based CNN really doesn't care about delivering news anymore, but CNN's international network still does a good job of covering a variety of topics without having to resort to Twitter or Jeannie Moss *shudders*

This reading twitter comments as news will be the downfall of our society.

I like how all the news outlets keep writing articles like "soccer could be a big hit in america" and "this could be soccer's turning point" like they have for every world cup

Seriously, if something like this trended enough on Twitter/Facebook, would CNN ever acknowledge it?

Both equally true points.

With content like this I just can't help but wonder why we collectively keep giving asshat organizations like CNN, Fox News, Daily Mail, Opposing Views, and so on ad nauseum their clickviews.

/Oh right, because then Fark would be a featureless tundra of encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com tags.
//But still entertaining

I prefer the Fox system of Tweets where they just read the Tweets that parrot their own talking points.

I saw an old episode of WWF Wrestling Challenge where Gorilla Monsoon sets up Bobby Heenan for a "Fair to Flair" comment and that acts annoyed that Heenan brought "that up again!"  I realized that this was exactly how most of the news/opinions shows work.   Now I can't help but think of cable news anchors as anything but really crappy "political entertainment" announcers.

Actual quote I heard this morning from one of those networks:
"This is the result of too much government regulation."
"Agreed.  There ought to be a law that says..."
