Pervert CNN

Agreed that it is not the sole responsibility of CNN to be a sensible media in today’s super shallow world. But the way CNN is handing the news about one Mr. John Karr, it is obvious that the network thinks news about this person is far more important to the welfare of America.

Terry Savage writes in TheStreet.com about this pathetic state. (http://www.thestreet.com/_dm/markets/economics/10305903.html) She talks about the scary state of Uncle Sam’s finances in her article and she is right when writes:

“… our huge and growing financial disaster doesn't stand much chance of gaining attention, especially in a world dominated by reality television shows and news headlines about perverts. When more people take the time to vote for dancing partners or dubious singing talent than vote for the president or their own congressional representatives, then we have only ourselves to blame.

Or we could say that we are setting ourselves up for the blame that our children will heap on us for being the first generation to leave this country worse off than we found it.”

And mind well, this is from a web site which is generally focused on talking how to make money without being partisan. Really the kind of mindless, shameless and incessant publicity CNN and likes of CNN are giving to this news item of one Mr. Karr; one wonders what kind of responsible journalism an established company like Time Warner wants to do. None, Time Warner is equally duping Americans by broadcasting such lousy news at the cost of real important issues of America. It is like Pavlovian condition – whenever there is rape and murder, CNN will keep aside everything and will keep on talking about that 24 x 7. CNN has become as pervert as like Mr. Karr.

News is about selling for ads not for broadcasting news
