Cilizza was no longer the worst thing on CNN anyway. Now they have guests which are way farther right and BSAB than he is, and lately they've started peppering the news with a bunch of stupid gossipy sh*t and human-interest drivel. It's getting to be pretty unwatchable, even as background to doing housework.

If you're under the impression that this is something they've only recently started doing at CNN, I've got some excellent, high-quality bridges to sell you. I mean, they're not actually bridges. They're NFTs of bridges, but that of course makes them much more valuable *and* you never need to maintain them. I'll also give you the opportunity to buy up to 1,000 Dogecoins at record-dip levels, which means you'll have the potential for nearly infinite returns on your investment.

Let me tell you how that plays right in to Trump's hands and is bad for the Democrats.

Robin Meade was more pleasant than any of the other morning hosts.

However, just turn the channel off. No point in keeping it going.

Okay, I just searched Ask Jeeves for NFT and let me just say I'm interested.  Very interested...

is it because CNN is now yet another right wing propaganda outlet owned by a conservative billionaire so they're probably replacing Chinchilla with a Weasel?

Neither of those things is why he was bad. He was bad because he did not care about facts, did not care about who was right or wrong, all he cared or reported about was the horse race. All that mattered was how polls would be affected.

Jessica Knappett has been described as a "baby giraffe". And about as coordinated as one, too.

It's crazy how many households aren't able to function without having some jackass on the TV yammering in the background. News commentators, movies, advertisements, it's all the same to them. It's like they've never heard of music.

It's hard to feel sorry for a network that embraced Jeff Zucker and his reality show mentality, but this is almost certainly more stupidity coming from the new Discovery leadership cadre.  They did some damage to HBO Max, now they have to spread the misery to other WB divisions.

He seemed pretty fixated on Trump... it seemed like every time I clicked on anything about Trump, there he was.  Maybe that's what they mean.

Anyway RIP fragmented sentences.

Some people just cannot be alone with their own thoughts.  They need a distraction, any distraction, music included.  This is why we have so many problems in this country.  If more people could manage to face themselves, we'd see a lot more empathy, understanding, patience, etc.
