CNN's viewership is terrible. With MSNBC having become openly liberal, and Fox News being the home to Hannity and O'Reilly, CNN has tried to portray themselves as unbiased. I think most conservatives would say that isnt true and liberals would say why go light instead of full on like Shultz and Maddow.

Airports across the country love CNN; however, I don't notice many people looking at the screens anymore. Has CNN jumped the shark?

I haven't been a fan since we invaded Iraq. I wasn't happy with their coverage then, and I've only seen them become more interested in advertizing and putting on a good show, rather than getting deep on an issue and providing unbiased reporting/commentary. I've mostly stuck to the internet since.

The only time I watch CNN , is if there is a crisis or whatever.
I watch the other cable news channels for opinion, but certainly am aware of the obvious biases.

CNN is news entertainment.

Seriously, about the only decent outlet for TV news is BBC.... and that's obviously limiting in terms of domestic issues here in the U.S.

Joe Rogan had Amber Lyon on his podcast last week. Really, really good listen if you want to her what journalism is really like.

Here's the podcast with Lyon's on it. Real real good stuff about journalism in the U.S., NDAA, and the Patriot act and how it's stifling journalists because they're scared they're going to be arrested and held without reason which NDAA allows. It's a ton of stuff that MSNBC, CNN, and Fox just won't report on.
