CNN (short for Cable News Network) is a news channel often bundled with cable packages. It launched on June 1, 1980 in Atlanta as the world's first 24-hour cable news network.

Disclaimer

While this is a bad source of news and shouldn't be used as your first hand account, it is still important to watch this. Remember that one should consider all sides of an argument before forming his/her political opinion, and reading different sources to see/hear what they're saying will help you.

Why It Sucks Now

  1. It is completely biased in reporting news. Until around the early 2000s, they were actually considered to be the least biased news channel, especially during the impeachment of Bill Clinton (when most other news networks were making him out to be either a degenerate pervert or an unfairly persecuted saint), but they've moved massively to the left since then.
    • They had bad moments in the 90s as well, as according to WISN#3 they almost always pushed for the American side in international conflicts, which was the most pronounced during the Yugoslav wars, when pretty much everything the Serbian government did was equated to the whole Serbian PEOPLE. Yes, they blamed the people, not the government.
  2. Often ignores most newsworthy stories that go against their interests.
  3. Most of the time, they favored the Political (Democratic and sometimes Republican Party) establishments through the past two-three decades.
    • Completely sided with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, doing everything to get her to win, rather than act neutral to both parties.
      • This happened again in the 2020 presidential election, as they were once again very anti-Bernie Sanders and shifted any Democratic Party primary candidates who were "far-left" from him until Biden won in the South Carolina primary (despite being the most Conservative state). They then sided with him to take Bernie down. And even after Bernie gave up the presidential race, they furiously attacked him for not being nice enough to Biden, despite Bernie being nice to everyone, including his Primary rivals.
  4. When a GIF of Donald Trump wrestling a man with a CNN logo for a head emerged, CNN tracked the man down and made him issue an apology, threatening to release the man's identity if he didn't. This led to a large backlash against them, leading to attempts at damage control.
  5. Despite the immense backlash for threatening to blackmail the man who made the tweet, CNN doubled down on its decision, saying that anyone who makes "hate speech" or "bigoted" comments should be "reigned in."
  6. Tracked down a pro-Trump supporter through her Facebook page and publicly shamed her.
  7. Has pretty much devolved into nonstop Trump-bashing, with very little actual news in between.
  8. Has dismissed and even defended the violent terrorist actions of many BLM and Antifa supporters.
  9. Recently bullied a kid for wearing a MAGA hat for no reason at all.
  10. Because of them, Trump supporters have spawned the infamous “#FakeNews” hashtag.
  11. The Trump/Russia collusion, while a good topic to discuss, is overly supported by CNN, all because of the Democratic Party lost the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. Thanks to the bias CNN is notorious of, the topic was left (or Pro-Democratic Party establishment) with flimsy evidence or the lack of evidence to back any electoral rigging, all leading to this conclusion: there was no election rigging in the 2016 and 2020 Presidential Elections.
    • Even this result CNN refuses to accept, only to continue to milk this conspiracy theory out even though the final results are out. CNN Supervising Producer John Bonifield even admitted that this story was only made/investigated in hope of raising CNN's ratings.
  12. During the White House briefings on the coronavirus pandemic, CNN cut the streams early in order to "fact check" what was said and wanted to give their interpretation of the briefings.
    • One infamous example was when Michael James Lindell (creator of My Pillow) was speaking and CNN criticized the White House for letting him speak and immediately cut the stream. It turns out that Lindell said that he was converting his factories to produce more face masks for healthcare workers to combat shortages.
  13. They made up random claims of some media that they have no evidence of at all:
    • They called Thomas the Tank Engine and PAW Patrol fascist for no reason in 2017.
    • They once called anime and manga "child porn" without any evidence. Is CNN blind or something?
      • It's also hypocritical for Turner Broadcasting System (The Company that owns CNN) to allow this since they also own Cartoon Network who's Adult Swim's block has Toonami which broadcasts anime.
  14. Completely embarrassed themselves when they covered the fappening incident by having their technology analyst Brett Larson say that 4Chan is a system administrator, that this person used a password app to get access to the nude photos and recommended that if your password is "password", then change the s's to dollar signs.
  15. After the death of George Floyd, another race-related incident/murder happened, where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by police officers after he stole a taser, which normally would have warranted a simple arrest. When news broke, they showed the footage of him being shot! Yes, it was blurry due to it being a small part of the security camera frame, but they still showed an actual murder on live TV.
  16. Claimed that there were peaceful protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin while the reporter is standing in front of cars on fire. If there's property being destroyed, then it's not peaceful!
  17. They have been known to label Democrats they dislike as Republicans just like Fox News does. They did this with Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northman, just because he was racist (Wore blackface and with a KKK member).
  18. Speaking of WISN#7, CNN along with many other MSM news outlets and even SJWs attacked the movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, due to Donald Trump making a cameo appearance.
  19. They are one of the main reasons on why the United States is incredibly divided along with Fox News, Antifa, Proud Boys the Proud Boys, White Pride, and BLM.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Despite its downhill, CNN is still the most-watched TV news network, and its iconic logo is still decent.
  2. Like many news channels, it targets certain terrorist organizations such as ISIS.
  3. They dropped Kathy Griffin from their New Years event after she posed in a picture with a fake bloody head of Donald Trump. which even liberals would find in bad taste.
  4. At times, they post non-political new stories outside of politics, like the arrest of Jussie Smollet.
  5. It sometimes has their bittersweet and emotional moments, like when Anderson Cooper paid tribute to his late mother and announced the birth of his son.
  6. Unlike multiple major news sources, CNN does not make gaming look evil, thus not associated with being Anti-GamerGate.
  7. They have highlighted the evils of racism broadly, which is important for people to know.
  8. As stated in WIS#1, they used to be a great news network, being as unbiased as they could at the time.
  9. Its international versions and website are still good.

My dad, who is a FOX News worshipper, calls CNN "Communist News Network". Anyways, I hate this network because like Fox News they're too biased in news reporting. I don't rely on any particular news channels because none of them match my left-wing views (CNN is basically for neoliberals, who are Conservatives Lite, so it doesn't make sense for my dad to say that this network is communist as it doesn't endorse seizing the means of production or anything). I guess some conservatives call anything they don't like communists.
