No snark. If you didn't see this coming from a mile away, you haven't been paying attention.


Actually, Fark CNN. I stopped watching them years ago.Trying to play both sides. Insisting that what we were witnessing during the past three years was somehow "a little bit concerning," but certainly not enough to stop Republicans from dispersing bullshiat talking points on our platform.

I don't feel even a bit sorry every single one of them, including Don Lemon. Yes, all the cable news networks were complicit in enabling Trump, but at least MSNBC is trying to attone. I can't even remember the last time I've watched this CNN. They are so smarmy and disingenuous, it's farking ridiculous.

AAAAGGGGHHHH: Remember that time before it became CNN center, the building was originally constructed as the World of Sid & Marty Krofft amusement park?

I do, 25 cents on Marta down to the Omni. Ice rink and a damn good game room too.

Here it is under construction. I took these pictures for a class I had at Ga. Tech. Two or three of the office buildings had been completed a few years earlier before the whole "Omni" complex was built around them. I think they built the escalator and platforms (where CNN studios operate now) without having any tenant in mind and settled for the Sid and Marty Croft idea.

CNN committed to Atlanta? Then why is 90% of their activity out of New York now?

It's no fun now that Ted can't stumble into the studio drunk off his butt at 4 am and start rambling.

WarnerMedia said the decision should not suggest it's less committed to Atlanta.

Less committed than what?  You already moved all the talent to NYC.  The commitment ended a decade ago.

I_told_you_so: This is what happens when you buy a clearly dying business like DirectTV for nearly 50 billion dollars.


Yeah! The smart money was in Cubey!

Quibby.

Q-Bert.

Hell, I can't even make a dumb joke about it because just like everyone else, I can't remember the stupid name they gave it.

The enemy is us.  Trump is just a symptom.   Extremism drives ratings.  Moderates are boring.  Gatekeeper media (i.e., the old newspapers) is something we decided we don't want to pay for anymore.  The country's farked.

Not wanting to be in the same building as pig cops is smart.


How's the CHOP going these days? Nobody's been shot in the last twelve hours, so pretty good?

The scripted shows on the other Warner channels are still Georgia heavy.

I won't disagree. With major media concentrated in just a few hands, the business side has dominated the editorial side. Disagreement with the "Powers" doesn't sell ads to us sheep.

And they employed Nancy Grace for a long time.
