    I wish these folks would take their political propaganda to another site more appropriate. This is supposed to be a football site.

    Sorry but CNN ceased being a legit news organization long ago. It has been proven on more then one occasion that they intentionally reported things that weren't true. Not to mention, one of their employees tried to rig a debate by supplying one candidate the questions. CNN is an unhinged liberal mouthpiece that spends 24 hours a day obsessed, and I mean OBSESSED with the President. They even spent 10 entire minutes talking about how many Diet Cokes he drinks. They are laughable.

    Just wow at the ironic level of disconnect. Seriously, step away from Fox and the rest of the nut-o-sphere. There is actually life outside of the fact-free zone.

    What did I say that wasn't factual? They have had to apologize on at least two occasions for fake news.

    Pretty much all of it.
    And mistakes happen --- 24/7 fake/faux/Fox news is done on purpose.

    You're delusional. CNN has an agenda. It isn't a mistake.

    I don't care who you are or what you've have done, or if you've been to the damned moon for that matter. if you rely on "news" from Breitbart, you are not living in any semblance of the real world. Case closed.

    This guy isn’t worth your time. If he can’t see that cnn has become more extreme than Fox News, almost to the point of pure fiction, his brain is just mush at this point and there is no saving it, no matter what you say.

    Fox News is atrocious, but CNN is worse. The reason being is that Fox’s nightly broadcasters (Hannity, Carlson, and whatever other idiot they have) never claim to be journalists or unbiased. In contrast, Cuomo, Cooper, and Lemon all claim to be unbiased journalists when they clearly are left wing idealogues.

    That might be the biggest disconnect to reality I've ever read on here. They DO claim to be "journalists" --- that is, until they get called out for yet another in a barrage of lies, then they hide behind being just commentators. And if you think CNN's crew are "left-wing ideologues"? Just wow. Seriously, lay off the booze for a while. Compared to Fox, Genghis Khan is a damned lefty.... but then, that's the cluelessness we have to endure anytime someone in this asylum violates the rules and starts yet another moronic political thread. So, literally the only good thing here --- other than me telling the truth --- is that this garbage got removed from the Bunker.

    ...annnnd there it is. You have zero credibility in your tiresome, nonsensial false-balance narrative so you resort to name-calling. Try turning off Fox and letting your brain-cells grow back.

    It’s not name calling; its simply an accurate diagnosis. I freely admit the both Fox and CNN are biased, but you deny that CNN has a liberal agenda. CNN’s busines model is to bash Trump to get viewers like you too gullible to realize that their being fed a left wing biased viewpoint. I haven’t watched Fox since the early 2000s. I stopped watching CNN over the past year because they are so biased the other way. Acting like their not is idiotic. You can argue that Fox is more biased than CNN, but if your dealing with two liars, why would you choose to listen to either?

    1. It was name-calling.
    2. If you honestly believe CNN has a "liberal agenda" you are hopelessly deluded... in fact their biggest failure (as anyone ho has seriously studied media as I have knows) has been trying to be too much like Fox.

    You've made it more than clear you are caught in the vortex of false equivalence. On one hand you have a mediocrity of a network that makes at least an honest attempt at news coverage --- on the other you have a 24-hour wing-nut propaganda machine. The only middle ground between those two is merely slightly less wing-nuttery.

    Truth be known, the only positive about recent events is that CNN is finally groing a pair and atually partaking in some journalism these days. It ain't Woodward and Bernstein but to even comapre CNN to a garbage-fest like Fox is just plain stupid.

    Seriously, stop. Come on in to the reality-based world. Facts matter in a democracy, Bubba.

    Do you think CNN is liberally biased? Do you think Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Anderson Cooper are more liberal than moderate in their opinions?

    Those 3? I wiould imagine their personal politics are somewhat left of center, That is not true at all of Tapper, for example. But here's the point --- CNN makes legitmate attempts at actual journalism (some segments better than others). Nobody's gonna confuse CNN with the gold standard of the PBS News Hour, but to assert that CNN pushes some systemic "liberal agenda" is just nonsense... and to treat them with a false-equivalence to Fox is just jump-the-shark absurd.

    Honestly, the above points are not even arguable and this is getting tiresome. I'll just leave you with the famous Johns Hopkins survey from a few years back that found that not only do Fox viewers have the least factual knowledge of current events among viewers of all news sources, they have less knowedge than even those who watch no news at all --- in other words we have a "news network" that actually subtracts from the sum total of human knowledge --- and that's not just irresponsible, it's 24-hour progaganda that's downright dangerous to democracy. Hell, RT and Sputnik have nothing on Fox... and these days they seem to be on the same damned side.

    SMDH and out.

    You keep missing my point - both Fox and CNN are biased, yes, Fox is worse, but itls commentators don’t try to pass themselves off as unbiased journalists like CNN’s does. If I want an update on natural disasters, foreign upheaval, and the like, I’ll watch CNN. Otherwise, for news I rely on written sources. And like I said above, I haven’t watched Fox in years.

    I agree with you....... both networks anlong with MSNBC and NBC in general have their agendas... they create and report stories that support their agenda.....

    I don't watch any of them

    It's become very difficult to get factual news..... I usually turn to BBC World as a compromise

    the problem for people like gary is they cant realize that since walter cronkite realized he could use his pulpit to cause urs to lose the vietnam war the press has had an agenda. after watergate the press went entirely left and for another few decades the left had a free propaganda machine. fox came along and gave the majority of americans yearning for a different message, one that reflected the facts they were seeing. the left can't stand the fact that fox exists. they always want to stifle free speech. it is the hallmark of all socialist governments. gary's fellow travellers cant control the narrative anymore and it is unhinging them. we on the right don't get near as bent because we have always known the press lies
