Corporate News Network (CNN nickname)

Cable News Network (CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news television channel. Some critics of CNN have claimed that the network promotes global corporations and the “New World Order.” The CNN nickname “Corporate News Network” has been cited in print since at least 1999.

CNN has also been nicknamed the “Chicken Noodle News” (cited in print since 1981), the “Communist News Network” (cited in print since 1991), the “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997) and the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000).

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. The 24-hour cable news channel was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner. Upon its launch, CNN was the first television channel to provide 24-hour news coverage, and was the first all-news television channel in the United States.

I saw the CNN clip you’re chatting on, baby, & my 1st thought was that I was NOT surprised that the Corporate News Network showed but a one-minute clip of two (over-the-top) folks from a SIX-hour town hall re: a VERY historic event.
