  1. Politics is sport, but ESPN and CNN branch into commentaries that some (including me) find saturates the story to fill air time. When news was just at 6 o'clock you would never see things like this.

    If you want a true comparison to politics and sport, think C-SPAN or beIN. You watch these channels to see the players in the arena.

  2. ronald reagan broke the news when he killed the fairness doctrine: there are photos of him online standing in between roy cohn and rupert murdoch – each of whom were key players in bringing about the end of the fairness doctrine. then came ted turner ~ whose unbridled greed and monstrous ego brought us a 24/7 news cycle, whether we wanted it or not.

  3. Man, look at that… Even the "SJW" News network: Vox hates CNN… JK, but CNN sucks!
    And for those who say that Vox is "SJW", it's not. Look at their channel, and you'll see that they are just anti trump. With some other news videos of the world.

  4. CNN put The Jerry Springer show out of business. It is disgusting. They pay Republican liars to tell the same lie all day long.

  5. 2:00. Admit it. Since you don't have to believe what you are saying, at least some part of you would be open to making silly or outrageous comments on television if it paid well enough.

  6. Great point of view, I don't watch CNN much, too much split screens not enough news coverage for me

  7. I get my News From CNN and MSNBC and other news Channels and not Fox News…why? because they report what Trump is saying and so on and talk about the Issues that are the Result if Trump..even IF they are Paid by CNN..it does not Matter…they Report on the news and not Sugarcoat anything. Unlike other News sites like OAN and Fox News, they are Propaganda for Trump…teh facts are CNN does News and they Report on things and talk about what is happening while Fox news calls everything an Attack or some Bullshit. SO go ahead call CNN "Fake" News….they report the truth which people cannot handle these days.

  8. News programs used to be done at a loss (financially) in order to deliver the news. Then in the late 80s/early 90s (can't remember exactly), someone decided that the news can be profitable. This turned the news into entertainment and not just CNN.

  9. What news channel do I watch then? Sorry I’m dumb, honestly just wanna watch the most honest, unbiased channel (that’s in tv cuz convenience)

  10. CNN is officially garbage now. I only watch then now when its election time and when I'm in the doctors office.

  11. But you are fake news. You have been exposed numerous times and with no apparent remorse or repentance.

  12. If watching various viewpoints being debated makes you dumber, you're most likely already dumb.
    If you can't see that they are also showing how insane these Trump pundits are, then you should just jump out of a plane.
    This is a result of the political climate. The Trump side understands nothing but clashes, Trump seems to get away with everything and it's about time to fight them with facts.

  13. if you think about it, between all the warped media and us constantly taking selfies and videos of ourselves and posting them… that WE ARE KIND OF A REALITY TV SHOW NOW. think about it… We are "ON TV" all the time, whether we are the audience watching or the people being watched…. i wanna quit it all…

  14. STOP BLAMING CNN as a whole ! Almost all the CNN journalists are respectable and deliver on credible news ! I agree that the hire people for drama but by criticizing everyone you are undermining the good journalists.

  15. Carlos: hey guys I know I’m an ignorant, ideologically-driven race baiter… but at least I’m not CNN

  16. I certainly the upcoming generations are smarter and more intelligent than the dunderheads that are running the country now.

  17. "political sports?" ( me chanting "boooooooooooo!"). "political comedy" (me saying "my precious!").

  18. So CNN, the cable news network, runs on sensationalism. Yellow journalism goes far back and ofc CNN is trying to make their best buck. It's like Fox on the right. Right snowflakes don't come for me. News needs to prioritize the truth and not drama or bias.

  19. Yeah, the biggest reason I turned to getting most of my news through satire shows is that I can’t understand half of what they’re saying on CNN because they’re always just yelling over each other. If I wanted pointless, stupid screaming over politics I’d go to my family’s house.
