CNN Eliminates Investigative Journalism

Remember: the function of corporate news is to make you stupid, sell you crap, and enslave you. It is not to inform and it is most certainly not to make you a free soul, obedient to God, and able to see through the lies of our Ruling Class, who want you to make you stupid, sell you crap, and enslave you.

    That’s a pity, SIU had some decent stuff over the years. Oh but wait, it’s Stewart. ACTIVATE TRIBAL PURITY DEFLECTORS. ENGAGE HEAD IN GROUND MODE.

    I’ve long preferred CNN just because it maintained a healthy investigative side. But when Stewart’s right, he’s right. He and Limbaugh continue to be the best critics of the media, and that in itself says something. In this case, eliminating quality in order to have more of what the main problem with cable news is in the first place. Sigh.

    The biggest thing wrong with the bulk of CNN’s broadcast day is also the biggest thing wrong with the bulk of ESPN’s broadcast day.

    When I have to walk past or sit near a television tuned to one of these channels, what I usually see is not actual news happening and being covered or actual sports happening and being covered, but talking heads interviewing each other and arguing with each other and speculating together about things that might or might not be happening, in whatever tiny little slices of the spheres of news and sports that they’ve decided to obsess over for hours that day.

    I don’t know what the proper diagnosis of this problem is, beyond simple unrestrained loudmouth asininity.

    Seriously? The iorny of it all is the John stewart show was complaining about there being no investigative journalism on any shows except fake shows, while investigating all this on his fake news show. Now, BECAUSE his show is a comedy, i have to ask, is this story real?
