a variant of "CNN sucks!"...

"Do your job!" and "Tell the truth!"

I personally have found CNN to be a pretty good source for data...though they do seem to be reality TV based news to an extent. Whatever gets the most activity from viewers seems to be their game in politics, which I suppose is what passes for news today.

Wikipedia on CNN controversies:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNN_controversies

Quote:
During the 2016 Milwaukee riots, CNN showed a clip of Sylville Smith's sister, Sherelle Smith, urging rioters: "Don't bring that violence here," and referred to her as calling for peace.[108] The rest of her speech, which was not included in the broadcast, included the following: "Burning down shit ain't going to help nobody! Y'all burning down shit we need in our community. Take that shit to the suburbs! Burn that shit down! We need our weave. I don't wear it, but we need it." After being called out for selective editing,[109] a CNN reporter involved in the story tweeted that they had "shorthanded" the quote and posted a link to a corrected video on CNN's website, which began with the screen shot that read: "An earlier version of this story mischaracterized what the victim's sister was trying to convey. She was calling for peace in her community, urging the protesters to go elsewhere
Yeah...I saw that. It got corrected on CNN and they got busted by MSNBC. Both are probably just as guilty of this conspiracy in your mind because they tend to report what Trump actually says and does. It was pretty funny to watch fox selectively edit until they got fed up and began being less...selective.

More about liars, cheats and creeps...


Donna Brazile out at CNN amid leaks to Clinton campaign - Oct. 31, 2016
Donna Brazile, the acting chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, resigned from her role as a CNN contributor earlier this month.

Quote:
Her departure was announced Monday amid fresh revelations that she sent questions to Hillary Clinton's campaign in advance of a CNN debate and a CNN-TV One town hall. In a statement, CNN said it was "completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor." CNN said it "never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate." Brazile resigned from the network on October 14, three days after Wikileaks released an email in which Brazile says she got advance questions before a town hall event. "From time to time I get the questions in advance," she wrote in the email.
