CIA News Network (CNN nickname)

The Cable News Network (CNN), a 24-hour cable news channel, was founded by Ted Turner and first broadcast on June 1, 1980. Some critics believe that CNN is propaganda for the United States government, especially the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The CNN nickname of “CIA News Network” has been cited in print since at least 1997.

CNN has also been nicknamed the “Chicken Noodle News” (cited in print since 1981), the “Communist News Network” (cited in print since 1991), the “Clinton News Network” (cited in print since 1992), “Certainly Not News” (cited in print since 1993), the “Criminal News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Corporate News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000), the “Crescent News Network” (cited in print since 2002) and “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007).

The Cable News Network (CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner. The 24-hour cable news channel was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner. Upon its launch, CNN was the first television channel to provide 24-hour news coverage, and was the first all-news television channel in the United States.

Eller Se&Hør, for den saks skyld. Jeg trodde ikke lenger det fantes folk som tror at de ser på TV er representativt for det landet de sender fra. I hvert fall ikke CNN (CIA News Network), eller enda rre; Discovery.

LOL. CNN (aka CIA News Network) did a credible job of spreading disinformation to the enemy during the Gulf War. These days it’s known as the “Communist News Network”, now that Turner finally got Hanoi Jane to put out.

CNN - The CIA’s News Network?
By Dave McGowan
May 2000
In February of this year, a story that had appeared in the European press was reported by Alexander Cockburn - co-editor of Counterpunch - concerning the employment by CNN of military psychological warfare specialists. Other than Cockburn’s piece, and the issuance of an ‘Action Alert’ by the media-watchdog group FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting), the report was ignored by the American press.

As originally reported by Abe de Vries in the Dutch periodical Trouw, the story went something like this: “For a short time last year, CNN employed military specialists in ‘psychological operations’ (psyops). This was confirmed to Trouw by a spokesman of the U.S. Army. The military could have influenced CNN’s news reports about the crisis in Kosovo.”
(...)
So if CNN was not originally conceived as a psychological warfare entity (which appears to be the case, despite its purported status as the brainchild of Ted Turner, husband of Jane Fonda), it has certainly evolved into one. And by the way, does anyone remember when Jane was supposed to be one of the good guys? Just checking.

After CNN was exposed by leaked footage showing their relations with Danny Abdul-Dayem, an actor of the Syrian revolution (http://youtu.be/p-DCZxsrt9I). They were exposed AGAIN when a video/audio clip of their employees came out. This time, they had set up a camera in a location where the Oil Refinery in Homs was bombed. (http://youtu.be/DfSwJi_LUWk)

Their reply on their website was beyond pathetic and this is our response to the world.
SHOULD YOU TRUST CNN when it stands for CIA’s NEWS NETWORK?!
