Crap Not News (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. The unflattering CNN nickname of “Crap Not News” has been cited in print since at least 2007.

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 “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997), 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) and the “Crescent News Network” (cited in print since 2002).

Hillary’s win downgraded to 9%, not 10%. The news media can’t do math.

Why should it matter? A win is a win is a win isn’t it? It just that all the talking heads said she had to win by 10% or more to continue. The media wants this farce to go on. What would they have to talk about if it ended? Real news? I’ve heard CNN referred to as CRAP NOT NEWS, but how could we refer to NBC, CBS, and ABC who all did the same sloppy math?
