CNN appears to be throwing in the towel,

The writing on the wall is clear: CNN simply will not survive if it attempts to continue on as a cable news network. Years of left-wing bias have cost the network its "Most Trusted Name In News" status, as has a series of factual bungles during big news events. During the Trayvon Martin story, both of these liabilities came out in full force.

CNN's desperation move to reinvent itself as something closer to the Discovery Channel is going to come at a huge price in the last remaining area CNN can boast about: profits. Despite its low ratings, CNN has always been hugely profitable. That is about to change. CNN is now in a position where it must go all in:

That's so sad :(

For the love of GOD ...

There is only one reason why CNN is dying ...

It is not grouped with the other news channels on cable and DTV.

At least that is the way it was when I used to watch cable or DTV.

The other news channels you could channel up or down a channel or two and hit them all. You can't do that with CNN.

It makes a big difference, whether you think so or not.

I've never thought CNN had left wing bias

I'd argue that it has always had ESTABLISHMENT bias.

Wolf Blitzer had a perpetual hard-on in the runup to the Iraq war.

What's with the shiny horn rimmed clown glasses they have all the reporters wearing on CNN and MSNBC? Does it have something to do with hypnosis brainwashing?

recently got glasses and you know i got the geek frames.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

What comes around goes around

What comes around goes around for Zionist preacher Wolf Blitzer and his assassin crew of Zionist reporters.

When Wolf Blitzer cries about the Iranian nuclear program when Israel has hundreds of nukes, does his non-existent audience hear what he's saying?

Good....

one down and a few more to go. Hopefully the entire Lame stream media will implode.

One down, several to go.

Personally, I'd like to see the entire concept of television get phased out. America would do well to end its fixation with the idiot box.

“My attitude toward progress has passed from antagonism to boredom. I have long ceased to argue with people who prefer Thursday to Wednesday because it is Thursday.” - G.K. Chesterton

30 years ago it was the idiot box

It can't even claim that level of intelligence today.

MSM News is America's Enemy #1

All they do is encourage more crime categories for us to be thrown in jail for, among many other things that are bad for us like more war. Now they're encouraging Bullying thought crimes. MSM news treats their audience like we're all criminals and laboratory rats. Nobody likes behavior modification, social engineering, sensitivity training, and war drum beatings shoved down their throats 24/7/365 from CNN or anyone else.

Yep

So many of their songs seemed to be written for today's political issues. The Ostrich, Desperation, Don't Step On The Grass Sam, Monster/Suicide/America, Power Play, Chickenwolf... and others. (I refuse to listen to Born To Be Wild and Magic Carpet Ride)

I just have to

add - I would sit and watch Chet Huntley and David Brinkleys corpses
newscast before I'd watch LSM again - ever zilch

something is up

greenwald gets into it over what is a journalist
feinstein defines what is a journalist
rand is called out and accused of not being a journalist with a column and now this...

I'd be delighted to see all

I'd be delighted to see all of the mass media go bankrupt. That would be a wonderful vindication of the workings of a free market.

CNN can die a miserable death.

Obama will

Bail out his little military industrial complex propaganda arm...and if he doesn't , little teddy the eugenicist turner will pull some cash out of his tax free foundation money to buy it back (he pretends to only be modestly wealty, but I'm sure he has offshore dough)

We should start taking a pool

On when they come out with bailout CNN.

CNN Bailout...

Taking a pool would be a good idea, but they may not stage a bailout quite as openly as they did with e.g. AIG, Goldman Sachs, or GM. It is more likely that they will funnel a lot of "ad revenue" into CNN, that will never pay off, and the "ad revenue" will sustain it quarter by quarter, until a buyer can be found for CNN. It would be a bailout, since the ads "purchased" would not yield any profitable sales, but nobody would see it until it was too late.

There are more fraudulent means of staging a bailout, but this idea comes to mind immediately.
