15. I used to watch CNN constantly

while there was quite a bit of bias, it was not as blatant as it is now.

I'd say in the last 2 years there has been a precipitous free fall towards shitty, biased, fox-news-like 'reporting'. And not just biased reporting - but shitty reporting. Zero follow ups, patting themselves on the backs, trying to 'make' the news in their image shitty. Fluff-shitty. False-equivalence shitty. Suck the brains out of your head shitty.

I've almost completely stopped - turn it on once in awhile only re-confirms my suspicions on the rightward drift, er, sprint.

It's no secret that they suck. It's also no secret why they have no viewers, yet they continue on the the loser path. There must be some big power/money behind them.

CNN needs an extreme news makeover.
