Skip to comments.Simple question. Do you trust CNN as a reliable source for information

I'll be up front with you, I don't. I don't trust their judgment in providing accurate information on what is considered news.
But, do you trust Money Magazine, which I think are the same folks as http://money.cnn.com/.
What about CNN's information on sciences? Is CNN a reliable source on bring news about the sciences? I don't watch the channel so I can't say.
I'm most curious if you think Money Magazine is worth a subscription. Or do you think of the magazine the same way you think of the channel?
Just a step above MSNBC....But not to be trusted....they still use heavy duty eyewash.
One would trust them if one likes their news extremely biased to the left.
I don’t trust any of the news channels — sometimes not even Fox.
About all CNN is good for is celebrity news/talk (see Larry King). Good for those whose major interest is in who was voted off American Idol. And they run those occasional bleeding heart pieces about the poor. But a reliable source of hard news and opinion? No.
As far as economic insight, they were mediocre at best. I viewed them as a mouthpiece of the investment industry, which has changed significantly. The industry today is focused on managing wealth instead of teaching you to create and grow wealth. The industry today projects an apolitical view, and by that I mean they discount the risks of investing that are associated with today's administration. It would not surprise me if Money Magazine today does not provide insight into the impacts on your nest egg of our "March to Socialism."
Not without checking to see if it has been verified true at other sources.
So I guess that means that my response is no.
Only during breaking national/world disasters...and only for a short time...or until they start to blame the disaster on globull smarming and lack of national health care.
Not at all but then again I don’t trust Fox news either. The MSM by and large is not the friend of traditional Americans and haven’t been for decades.
And George Bush. :)
I don’t. I have channel blocked CNN.
Don’t trust CNN’s veracity. I guess that’s why I haven’t watched since FoxNews became available on my cable. Used to watch Crosssfire some in the era of Buchanan & Kinsley.
NO. That includes “Money” magazine.
Is this a trick question?
A cynical eye toward all news outlets is important. Each has its own political agenda, but more important is the basic need to be profitable. News has become also entangled with entertainment and news items that the mass market will consume.
Never trust any news story from any source that has a political slant. Some, like MSNBC, lie deliberately all the time, while CNN’s disinformation is a combination of liberal lies and outright stupidity. Even FOX isn’t totally reliable. You have to listen to a variety of sources, take everything you hear with a large grain of salt, and make your own decisions.
LOL to the question.
CNN is for purely entertainment value.
