Counterfeit News Network (CNN nickname)

The Cable News Network (now called CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news 24-hour television network. Some CNN critics have given the network the backronym (back acronym) of “Counterfeit News Network” since at least 1999. “Counterfeit New Network” became popular in 2017, during the presidential administration of Donald Trump.

“CNN—Counterfeit News Network” has been printed on many images.

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), “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).
