    Obviously, it did not confirm what their agenda wants us to believe and didn't validate how the rubes feel generally.

    CNN has lost a great deal of credibility since the Iraq War, and even more so during the recent election.

    actually, all cable news sucks ass

    As a network, CNN stopped pretending to be nonpartisan in the lead up to the election. When you've already made that switch, it's really hard to go back to nonpartisan reporting. Part of being partisan includes lying or exaggerating for a specific agenda, and part of that agenda is not having a wall.

    They usually give things pretty even coverage. I'm shocked by this. That or they probably realized how dumb they looked sending Jim "President of the Jim Acosta fan club" Acosta to a section of the wall to report that it's "tranquil", so no point in building more wall unless you want more of that bullshit tranquility.

    According to CNN, Mexico is a very peaceful country that only send us the best of the best. If you disagree you're a racist.

    Basically this.

    News became a product with commercial interest. Because you get a more specific demographic, you can advertise more specifically and I presume have a more loyal consumer base.

    It's news subsidized by ads. Their goal is to get more viewers, and they're competing at a time where we have more media than we could possibly consume. Not just competing against other news channels, but against all Television and online media as well. If it takes your eye away from their station, it's competition. And it seems accuracy and objectivity have long fallen by the wayside in favor of excitement and bias.

    Cable news is garbage fire entertainment.

    Wait, so you’re saying news networks are not the arbiters of truth they profess to be?

    Shame on CNN! Hold on a minute, so we already have a border wall? Cool, now Comrade Bonespurs can pass the budget and stop throwing a hissy fit so people can get paid and the government can function properly. Oh wait, never mind cause he is a sensitive snowflake and Hannity and Coulter might hwurt hiz fweelingz! Continue the shut down!

    This entire week I have had the pleasure of watching CNN for about 45min-1hr every morning in the lobby of the place I am staying. I sit and drink some juice, eat some toast and watch. It is LITERALY non-stop Trump hate. They can't be bothered to report on anything not pure hate on Republicans or Trump.

    The first day I was annoyed. The second day I was actually getting pissed off and left early to stand outside. But now it is just pure comedy entertainment. I sit and wonder if these people actually believe what they are saying, are they themselves bored of it, or is it just something they are being to focus on to keep their jobs. In the span of 1 minute this lady said Trump 12 times. I only started counting when I took notice of how fixated she was.

    If you want something to do give it a try. Put a time limit on and count how many times Trump's name is said.

    Weds I was sitting through one of the mandatory briefings from one of the civilians and he went off on a tangent about Trump's wall. The government shut down and the wall. The wall and military budgets. I gave it about 3 or 4 minutes and packed up my stuff. Under my breath I said, "that's about all I can take" and a few people nearby started laughing. I got up and left but of course the briefer stopped and asked if I was coming back. I punked out like a bitch and said I had something else to do. I'm really kicking myself now. It was just easier than getting into a political debate that would have gone nowhere and made everyone even more uncomfortable. Fuck it. I should have said it. Looking back I could have said, "you are insulting the Commander in Chief to a bunch of people in uniform. I'm leaving before I have to either chokeslam you or report you to your boss for your treasonous lies, you scumbag. Out of my way, before I fill this room with uppercuts"

    I'M A PUNKASS BITCH, OMG. A fucking civilian cowed me.

    Also, I've been drinking.

    They had a segment today about how some foreign countries' walls were effective, so if they are spin doctors, surely they wouldn't show two of these "effective wall" segments. They also pointed out and showed the tunnels under the walls.

    Never heard of him.

    Is he on YouTube?

    I think I saw CNN had a Twitter account. Seemed like it was for old people though. Saw an Ensure add next to the tweet.
