Corporate News Network (CNN nickname)

Cable News Network (CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news television channel. Some critics of CNN have claimed that the network promotes global corporations and the “New World Order.” The CNN nickname “Corporate News Network” has been cited in print since at least 1999.

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 “Counterfeit 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), “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007) and the “American Pravda” (cited in print since 2012).

I saw the CNN clip you’re chatting on, baby, & my 1st thought was that I was NOT surprised that the Corporate News Network showed but a one-minute clip of two (over-the-top) folks from a SIX-hour town hall re: a VERY historic event.

And the approach of CNN lately seems to involve minimizing the imputation of guilt to Enron’s upper level management. If they aren’t careful people may begin calling CNN the Corporate News Network.
