UnReality TV: CNN Announces It Will Continue to Fail

Jeff Zucker named new president of CNN Worldwide - CNN.com

Hypothetical conversation between two CNN Executives:

Exec#1: I don't get it. Our ratings are dropping like stones. Our viewership is a tiny fraction of what it was 10 years ago. We run interference for Dear Leader Barack Obama, not letting any news story that might even remotely reflect badly on him get any air time. The vast majority of our reporters are overwhelmingly liberal. As are our writers, producers and 'news' show hosts. A conservative person or point-of-view doesn't even get the light of day on this network, except to be mocked or criticized. Still, we keep losing viewers. Any ideas on how we can turn this around?"

Exec#2: "I know! Let's hire more liberals!"

Exec#1: "Brilliant!"

Your Say

If it wasn't for airports I'm not sure CNN would have any ratings at all.
