CNN to Package News by Topical Themes(2003-07-17) -- As the major news organizations go into their annual summer re-run cycle, CNN announced today it will package its programming in topical categories as "headline theme shows".
Among the categories scheduled for rebroadcast:
-- Arab TV airs more tapes from guys we thought we had killed.
-- Democrats shocked and saddened at things George Bush does.
-- If you lived here, this weather would probably kill you.
-- Someone you never heard of is missing...possibly killed.
-- The economy, while apparently rebounding, will likely get worse.
-- Diseases with acronyms or animal names will probably kill you.
-- Someone is killing people in a town you never heard of.
-- Something you use everyday will probably kill you.
-- Everybody in the world still hates America.
-- Someone you never heard of just won the lottery.
-- Someone famous said something outrageous.
-- Stories we broke keep making news on our network.
-- Disturbing video you need to see again and again.

CNN - Citizen of the World, beholden to no one; loyal to no one; expatiating misinformation, bias and spin to please socialists and the ignorant who are their primary viewers. Nothing they say or do is for a better, stronger America.
In a word BOYCOTT them and their sponsors.

Absolutely. Anyone know any of their major sponsors? i'd make a list but I never watch CNN anymore...

It is pretty funny...
Our local ABC affiliate must take its cues from that list. The major topic this week is West Nile and EEE. Massive warnings about slathering DEET all over yourself and throwing cat litter in puddles to dry them.
Yeah. That's really news. Guess it beats thinking for a living.
