CNN nicknames...
OK I watched CNN for 5 minutes this morning and the whore-ity was mind blowing. Do you have any nicknames for CNN or the type of product they are. For example some people have used the term info-tainment, but I don't think this applies here. Please help, I want to mock CNN and I just can't come up with anything...Thanks.

9. You mean Certainly Not News?
Edited on Thu Oct-21-04 01:01 PM by freeminder
how about
Propaganda?
"News"?
Pseudo-journalism?
Subtle RW shills?
Maladministration Mouthpiece?



See, I just watched it too - they had something on Iraq nonetheless : "educating Iraq's youth"
:puke:

How about educating yourselves and America on THE TRUTH you morans!

On edit :
Faux-lite?
To be honest, they do carry Jon Stewart's Daily show.
Like others have said, they used to be better - Peter Arnett times...

12. I have called them the Goebbels News Network or GNN
here and in emails to them. I guess that's why they don't acknowledge my emails anymore.
