Maybe they could start playing music videos and replace MTV as they never play videos anymore.
Hell, I might even watch it for a few minutes.
CNN was a News Channel, Who would have guess that?
Maybe it should read “Pravda going out of business”...
“cautioned investors that as a result of the investments, CNN may not see income growth for years. “
so why waste our time then?
Maybe they could try to report the news without leftist bias and even hire a conservative talking head or two??
Nah, they don’t care that much.
I we ever get a la carte cable/sat, they’ll be among the first to disappear, along with sister net HLN.
More liberal pap in other words
Al Jazeera. Or however it’s spelled.
HLN might disappear soon anyways
I remember when CNN was still an upstart in the Reagan/Bush era. We kept it on at HQ because something breaking in the world affected us. It beat the others hands down until it went to the left. Then it became same old, same old.
Fox News is now going that same direction.
I remember when you couldn’t even get a cable service to carry FoxNews.
Take that CNN!
Yep. HLN even stated this week it is going to focus on more “entertainment” based programming. More dumbing down of America....just what we needed...less information about the real issues and more focus on the bullshit to numb the population into thinking everything is A-OK.
If they hired me to do a conservative show I’d get way better ratings than any of their current or new shows. And I’m not a trained a broadcast specialist like some one we all know.
Fox News wit the exception of Shep’s show is HORRIBLE with breaking news to this very day. CNN is ALWAYS #1 on breaking news.
cautioned investors that as a result of the investments, CNN may not see income growth for years.
Can probably drum up some Twitter and Facebook investors wanting to diversify from social media to social justice investments.
They could bounce back if they went further right than “course-corrected” Faux News. But their current leadership will prefer ideology over journalism . . .
I am not sure they could give us less info on real issues if they tried. They ignore so much that happens and focus on the trivial a lot. Always with a leftist bias.
If it didn’t fit the narrative, it didn’t get reported.
Of course they would choose a ultra liberal like this. He always made it a point to slip in some smart-alecky comment about Bush or republicans. He will never attract a large audience.
Think of the value of the brand name CNN. Dumping news instead of reporting from the middle. It’s like Microsoft giving up operating systems to concentrate on ebooks and mp3’s.
