CNN SUCKS!!!

You know im watching cnn here and vice president Pence is conducting a speech. Soon after the President will also conduct a speech. Thing is...

I would rather listen to the vice president than a panel of scandle crazy democrat pseudo-journalists droning endlessly on the latest and greatest story the msm can come up with.

Can i just listen to the vice president speak?

"And remember, it's illegal to read wikileaks emails so you need to let us at CNN tell you what's in them"

You're missing the whole point of CNN etc, it's not about what was actually said or done, it's about getting your talking point from the talking head representing corporate interests.

CNN is nothing but mind control for the loony sheep dipped loons who still believe Trump colluded with the Russians.

It's basically Comedy Central with a different logo.

Airport bars wont change their lawfully purchased airtime. The peeps around me agree. Almost all of them truly want to hear Pence and Trump. Not this panel of harpies and snowflakes.

Edit: CNN pays airports to to play their channel.

Trump probably thinks the second amendment is the right to have a goldplated toilet.

They're marketing to the type of people who get their news from John Stewart, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, etc... a clip reel punctuated by indignant shoulder shrugging and "I just can't believe this." No real content but Millennials and Gen Zs eat it up because it's easier than watching a whole speech and drawing their own conclusions.

I'm listening it right now and he has basically been attacking Republicans and he is not doing so well with his comments either.

I can speak for myself only but I have never watched any channel you have or we have for more than an hour straight. I run while playing Rachel Maddow from YouTube and do my stretching to see her go handsy. For almost a year I thought she was a man so I'm not exactly a good listener.

I like reading. I read five papers per day and I actually enjoy the way reporters use words. I don't get this watching news thing you guys do.

Of course if you tend to vote Republican you'll hate it, or if you're a reasonably normal person trying to just hear actual news and not spin or opinions you'll hate both. You need to change up news sources or use more of them.

That's why I love my handsy girl man, man. She is not a news anchor or a reporter, she actually explains every morning for my run which articles I should look in to more. For sure my man is totally liberal, but she works to deliver a point.

Don't forget gen Xers who's political clock stopped in 2005 and who need a evil Bush-like figure for the funnymen on Comedy Central to make fun of (there's nothing like a smug sophist to soothe and reassure them that they're the smart ones and Drumpfh is bad and silly, just like Reddit says)
