I swear to god, they are having a field day with this deal, one of there reporters or wolf blizter was giggling and laughing so were his other guests
that was a bit sicking to my stomach as if they played a role.

Because most of us are not stupid enough to watch that biased network so have no idea what they are doing. We learned that a long time ago.

I don't know many people who watch CNN. But the truth is, there are no credible news sources on television, so if you are going to watch cable news, it might as well be CNN as FOX news as MSNBC. But, yeah, CNN definitely is among the establishment's spin machines. I do so love it when a guest appears on CNN, FOX, or MSNBC and goes off script, actually telling the truth or relaying information or an opinion that does not go along with the pre-planned agenda for the day. The anchors or hosts become befuddled and do not know what to do or quite what to say. It is awesome. Although I have to rely on ATS or some other independent internet resource to see it because otherwise, I wouldn't know it happened. Thanks, ATSers!

Mainstream news is no more real than reality television.

There's nothing wrong with tuning in for an occasional laugh, but you'd be a fool to take any of it seriously.

I have CNN on but it's NOT because I am sitting here openmouth-breathing all agaga and beleevie dumb. It behooves all of us to monitor these news outlets, because they -are- reporting -from- there, (Washington) and you can see what kind of agenda is afoot.

News? The only news that comes out these days...is bad news; even here on ATS! Let's face it, how many people look forward to a story with a happy ending? Who wants a story with a good samaritan? Pah-lease, the whole world's addicted to the drama. Doom and gloom is what we're all about...and it's easily obtainable....like going to the pharmacy...with prescription in hand.

That's pretty sad too. No offense intended.

You have to realize that we are not going to be given the 'news.' We will always be "given" what the owners, directors, writers, talking heads, and spin-industry want us to have. The "news" has become something you have to go out and get because by the time one of the commercially-produced types 'gives' it to you, its been dissembled, reforged, and reassembled.... if its given to you at all.

Unfortunately that includes the likable, funny, charismatic, and well-polished folks who thrive on your attention to them.... The real hint is that there are some things they will NOT speak about at all, no matter what.

I dont want to come out and say idiot, but when it talks like a duck, and it thinks like a duck its probably not going to be all that bright.

uhhhh...me don't am overstaning wat you arr saiding. iz you am saiding me am dumm??

you know...i would have figured that when I stated that part where I get my "news" was from comedy shows it would have been implied that it was a joke. I guess next time I will use
to make sure that my point isnt missed.

as for where I actually get my news....I get it from many sources. CNN being one of them. I also watch my local news, read my local newspaper, MSNBC, MSN.com. I try to use a wide variety of news outlets so at to get many facets. This way I can put all the "spun" news together and come up with my own "truth".

oh...and I also consult my psychic for 401(k) advice.
