I can be somewhat of a cynic at times so I apologize if my remarks sound cynical but it's hard for me to be honest and make it sound all nice and
such when it's not.
CNN ripping Obama is indeed a new one on me. While I never would have thought that CNN would do such a thing, I also think that times are so hard for
everyone and especially the media giants like CNN that I believe what we are seeing is an attempt to sound hip, cool, sound like the masses. Try to
appear in touch with the masses. CNN is trying to appear as if truth and obvious logic actually matters again.
I say again because most have come to a point that the media is inconsequential and is not believed in anything they say. Too many people believe and
rightly so that the media giants are nothing but propaganda mouth pieces for the federal government and the sitting regime in power.
This recent CNN move away from business as usual for what is usual for the media giants is causing a move away from the norm and appears to me to be a
poor attempt to appear as if CNN really reports again and that they report on tough issues again that will of course rub someone wrong in the White
House like Rahm Emanuel or even Obama himself. We already know this.
There was a time in history past when CNN was the most respected and the most investigative news agency on the planet. The White House use to watch
CNN to learn what was going on in the world. They were really good at reporting the world news but those days are over. They know it and so do we.
I cant blame the public for turning off the media giants for what they can find more truthfully on the internet, but I have to say that they brought
it upon themselves.
I wouldn't put it past other media giants to attempt the same, but I for one will never forget just how much the giant media companies let America
down when we needed truth and real investigative reporting, they gave us lies, deception and propaganda so far removed from the truth that the public
finally got fed up with the lies and deceitful, arrogant attitude coming from those that once were the pillars of truth, justice and telling it like
Times do change and I guess the media could too, but they have a long road to walk before I will ever trust anything they say or do or try to report
What we could have seen is a rouge CNN report that was done while someone was on vacation and some eager beaver got away with airing something that
probably would have been denied had perhaps not everyone in corporate executive level been out on some seminar or convention or vacation perhaps.
Could have even been on sick leave or maybe someone got terminated and the authority to deny has been subverted. Oh well, either it was a mistake or
it was an attempt to do something needed and "NEW."
Time will tell. Let's hope that it's a true return to real reporting regardless of who it might make go, "wee wee wee" that made me mad, get a
hold of CNN and let me talk to........ This is the President, I want you to cease any coverage on .......for National Security Reasons. Get the
Anyway, thanks for the posting. I feel better now but the jury is still out on whether CNN is for real or just joshing us again.
