there is one real problem here with this article cnn has posted. one very huge problem:
this is not journalism. i don't know what they think they're doing by writing articles like that and not placing them solely under "opinion." what
cnn is doing and has been doing is NOT journalism. it is not "the news." turning to cnn for credible news information is opting to have a bunch of
paid off agents read off of a scripted teleprompter. it's no different when you read articles like this either. they're a personal opinion website.
i mean what kind of fact checking do they do? when do they research and investigate the issues that we demand to be looked into? do they EVER give
only the information, and not their spin?
i'm sure no news organization is capable of releasing a story without some kind of angle, but the most important part of a news organization is its
factual integrity. i mean we have to believe what we read, right? have an opinion on something all you like, but give me the cold hard facts to
research and decide for myself!
cnn doesn't even scratch the surface on attaining the status of a "reputable news source." i mean we can really talk about how much they're
destroying our population by dumbing down their exposure to critical information, but it's really about the simple fact that it's not news. it
doesn't even try to be anymore! i mean seriously, what the hell is the goal of this article?
i just read some dude's useless opinion on how everyone posting in here right now pose a huge problem to this country's well being. i mean..
seriously? how can we sum up the right kind of words to show this ignorant "reporter" that we would much rather he lose his job than to keep writing
blatantly controlled propaganda for his master's benefit? where are the facts?! where's the news?!
i come here to ATS and i keep finding the same dialogue over and over again - "what are your sources, where did you get that information from, how do
you know this information is substantiated and verified?" these are all beautifully constructed dialogues, because so long as we keep doing this, we
are the news! we're doing their job for them.
i'd like to see a whole swarm of people DEMAND that cnn releases their sources over and over and over again for all of the BS they spew without
backing anything up. i mean really, why isn't anybody mentioning that in cnn's message boards? there's all this ridicule of other members and of
cnn itself, but this is precisely what should be demanded of them! where are their sources, what are they, and are they credible?
man i bet cnn would have a difficult time dealing with all the "crazies and paranoids" who are all of a sudden making ridiculous demands of telling
cnn to back up their statements with cold hard facts. you know, the stuff that makes journalism, journalism.
