CNNís Freak Show Of Violence And Racism Hit 17 New Lows This Week
Breitbart ^ | 10-14-2018 | John Nolte

Posted on 10/14/2018 12:40:54 PM PDT by blam

Here is the thing that is so amusing about CNN… Pretty much every day the far-left network engages in numerous acts of self-humiliation. A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath … and for what? If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNN’s ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN in far-last place, The Least Trusted Name In News does not even have a breakout star or show. Throughout all of last quarter, and only in competition with two other networks (MSNBC and Fox), not a single CNN show — not even one — placed in the top 20.

Think about how awful CNN is to accomplish such a thing, to only have two other networks to compete with and still not place even one show in the top 20 throughout an entire quarter.

Here’s another scenario that might makes sense of CNN’s relentless campaign of self-degradation… Let’s say CNN’s ratings are just as bad, but with breaking stories and smart reporting, CNN is having an impact on public opinion and the news cycle. If that was the case, I could understand the freak show, because having an impact matters. And if it takes a freak show to have an impact, so be it. Except…

CNN has no impact at all. All of the Big Stories CNN broke this year turned out to be fake news, and ever since Carl Bernstein’s disgrace, CNN has pretty much stopped reporting. Like a prize fighter who got knocked out, the anti-Trump channel...

A couple of other scenarios:

  1. It's therapy. The on-air talent at CNN is engaging in a form of therapy for themselves and their audience. Primal Scream Therapy, tele-rolfing, something along those lines.

  2. They're being paid by very large pools of money — some of which is coming from other countries — and really don't care about their ratings. Their job is to unite and motivate an internal army of subversives, for some future purpose.

By the end of Trump’s second term, CNN will be off the air.

Every time I tune in, maybe they’ll have a breakout feature. Never happens.

Hey blam!

If you need to take a break from CNN tonight, ABC has doubled down during the election season with the debut of a new talk show hosted by Alec Baldwin. His first guest is Robert DeNiro. No kidding!

Personally, I would rather watch live lizards stalking the moths circling the bug light out by the garage.

Cut the cable. Every month that you are paying a cable bill, CNN get a bit of your money.

Isn't that essentially what that show is?

Yes. Note I used the term “live” for my home viewing preference. Presuming the Alec Baldwin lizard show is recorded.

The thing I don't understand about CNN, and to a lesser extent about MSNBC, is what are their investors thinking? Low ratings translates to lower ad revenue which is certainly not in their best economic interests. And yet they do nothing to clean up the mess that is CNN. Even founder Ted Turner recognizes the shortcomings and has commented on it.

Perhaps the role of CNN is not to make money, but rather to serve as a pulpit for far left anti-Trump propaganda. Sure seems like it.

While humming "Lili Marlene." I do that.

Also good: 2016 election night coverage on youtube.

CNN used to be the go to network for breaking news. Whenever there was a military operation, hurricane, terrorist attack, etc., CNN always used to have the best coverage. Even though they’re far left, it’s hard to understand why the people in charge have let it get so bad.
