CNN is nothing but a propaganda mouthpiece. This is absolutely blatant propaganda. Are the powers that be preparing to ramp up military activity in Syria? Is this just a distraction to mask some other activity? I'll let you come to your own conclusions; here's mine. CNN is nothing but a sold out mouthpiece for the powers that be. Don't waste your time with it. I certainly won't be wasting mine.

Fox is no better. The last time I watched Fox was when a reporter doing a story on 911 said "I know none of us will forget that Wednesday morning " I was like SERIOUSLY???????????? How can ANYONE, let alone a reporter doing a story on 911 not remember or research it was a Tuesday???? The story was being read, so that means MULTIPLE people did not remember it was a Tuesday. I was like WOW, also during the time of actual events Fox always had greatly inflated numbers of victims for weeks on the bottom of the screen ticker! (Compared to other news channels, and actual final numbers of the victims)

I don't think he is trying to sell anything, just point it out. And you reported him? What was so offensive by this post that warranted it being reported by you? Reminds me of the whole report your neighbor to the government thing, if you see something say something...

Report all you like. I have not violated any part of the T&C. The article is well written pertinent and informative. As such nothing about my OP will be changed. It was not advertising.

If you don' t see that CNN article as blatant in your face propaganda, you are part of the problem.

Well it is ironic that you want to talk about propaganda and then link something talking about selling things to make you a 'mega genius'.
Holy jebus this Jim Diamond guy is something else... Why would anyone give him a dime.

Can you answer why that article you showed is blatant propaganda??

Oh nice cop out, don't address it just say that others are too stupid to see it.

Well you are obviously just to dumb to see it X!!

We are just part of the problem for applying the smallest amount of critical thought and asking why.

Maybe we just need to become mega geniuses and then we can figure it out.

SERIOUSLY!

CNN is about as benign as you can get.

They don't really say much of anything.

I don't get it. You reference a lecture series?

CNN is like a spring board of topics to follow up on.

CNN doesn't say much of anything.

For me the page format is easy to read - - that's it. Has nothing to do with content - - cuz there really isn't much.

LOL, of course since we are asking why what you linked is propaganda we MUST be die hard CNN fans.
I think they are pretty run of the mill, they have their bias which does lean a bit left but I don't think they are a mouth piece.
Of the three major 24 hour networks I would say if I was forced to watch one that is what I would watch because Fox and MSNBC lean to far to the right and left respectively.

We are just asking WHY that piece is propaganda, you have given zero reason and just linked a lecture series to some quack.

Yet another denial of obvious facts,what a surprise.If your saying CNN isn't now a bias,political weapon then go back to sleep.I remember when same network was a refreshing,breaking news,APOLITICAL member of the 4th estate.Now as they sold out to leftists,their simply crappie propaganda.

Like the 15,000 new emails which may link Hillary and the Clinton Foundation to more pay to play schemes? Or take attention away from Huma Abedin and her mother working for a radical Muslim journal? Nah, would never believe CNN's in the tank for Hillary.
