Crescent News Network (CNN nickname)

The Cable News Network (now called CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news 24-hour television network. Some critics have called CNN the “Crsecent News Nrtwork” (after the Islamic symbol of the crescent) because of a perceived pro-Muslim slant. “Crescent News Network (CNN) says U.S. Military is not prepared” was posted to the newsgroup alt.politics on March 28, 2002.
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 “Cabal News Network” (cited in print since 1996), the “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997), the “Clown News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Criminal News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Corporate News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Counterfeit News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000), “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007), “Criminally Negligent News” (cited in print since 2009), the “Collapsing News Network” (cited in print since 2010), the “American Pravda” (cited in print since 2012), the “Cuomo News Network” (cited in print since 2013), the “Collusion News Network” (cited in print since 2017) and the “Cuomo Nepotism Network” (cited in print since 2017).

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. It was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner as a 24-hour cable news channel; however, by April 2016, a CNN executive officially described the channel as “no longer a TV news network” and instead as “a 24-hour global multiplatform network.” Upon its launch, CNN was the first television channel to provide 24-hour news coverage,[5] and was the first all-news television channel in the United States.

Crescent News Network (CNN) says U.S. Military is not prepared
Reginald Bosanquet
Looks like Ted “the Christian hater” Turner’s network is still shilling for Arafat, Bin Laden & Hamas. CNN, the Cresecnt News Network, formerly known as the Clinton News Network - continues to blast American military forces.

FOX news kicks the shit out of the “Crescent News Network” (CNN).
Islam is CRAP!
Most people have abandoned the leftist propaganda stations in America and have turned to honest news stations like FOX to get the facts.
They might as well pull the plug on CNN like they plan to do to MSNBC.

Crescent News Network: CNN Fires All Jewish Reporters in Israel; But No Tears for the Self-Haters
By Debbie Schlussel
Even self-hating, anti-Israel Jews have outlived their purpose in the anti-Israel mainstream media because, after all, they are Jooooos. So, now, in addition to people who express their dislike of David Beckham and pink clothes on Twitter, Jews are also on the CNN “no fly” list.
