CNN is a U.S. cable news channel that was founded in 1980. The blog Ace of Spades HQ nicknamed CNN as “MSNBC White” (after MSNBC, the progressive political news and opinion channel) starting January 30, 2013. (The NBC radio network once had Red and Blue Networks in the late 1920s and early 1930s.) In the post titled “Occupy Wall Street Was Overwhelmingly White & Privileged and Somehow CNN Didn’t Notice,” Ace of Spades wrote, “CNN’s changing its slogan, by the way. It will now be called ‘MSNBC White.’” That is, CNN is indistinguishable from MSNBC.
The “MSNBC White” nickname has been used frequently by Ace of Spades HQ (and its posts on Breitbart.com), but has not had acceptance on other conservative blogs.
Cable News Network (CNN) is a U.S. cable news channel founded in 1980 by American media mogul Ted Turner. Upon its launch, CNN was the first channel to provide 24-hour television news coverage, and the first all-news television channel in the United States. While the news channel has numerous affiliates, CNN primarily broadcasts from its headquarters at the CNN Center in Atlanta, the Time Warner Center in New York City, and studios in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. CNN is owned by parent company Time Warner, and the U.S. news channel is a division of the Turner Broadcasting System.
Occupy Wall Street Was Overwhelmingly White & Privileged and Somehow CNN Didn’t Notice

Given that CNN’s signature star (I use the term advisedly) is Gloria Vanderbilt’s very preppy son, I’m not shocked they looked at Occupy Wall Street and saw themselves.
CNN’s changing its slogan, by the way.
It will now be called “MSNBC White.”
CNN’s (aka MSNBC White’s) Game...

...is that they are, supposedly, “just reporting what’s being said on social media.”
That is, the claim goes, they’re neutrally reporting what’s going on. This is going on on social media; ergo, MSNBC White is neutral is reporting it.
at @cnn (MSNBC White), murdering people is NOT necessarily a career ender, nor is praising murderers, but drinking water just might be.

Jeff Zucker Succeeds in Transforming CNN Into MSNBC White
The network that once gave serious coverage to Code Pink (when Bush was president) now thinks Rand Paul is just a silly boringhead who’s boring.
This is important to MSNBC White for several reasons.
