Clown News Network (CNN nickname)

The Cable News Network (now called CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news 24-hour television network. Some who ridicule CNN have called it the “Clown News Network.”

“CNN(clown news network)” was posted on the newsgroup alt.politics on July 10, 1998. “CNN: The Clown News Network” was a popular video that Mark Dice posted on YouTube on May 29, 2017.

CNN has also been nicknamed the “Chicken Noodle News” (cited in print since 1981), the “Communist News Network” (cited in print since 1991), the “Clinton News Network” (cited in print since 1992), “Certainly Not News” (cited in print since 1993), the “Cabal News Network” (cited in print since 1996), the “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997), the “Criminal News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Corporate News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Counterfeit News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000), “Crescent News Network” (cited in print since 2002), “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007), “Criminally Negligent News” (cited in print since 2009), the “Collapsing News Network” (cited in print since 2010), the “American Pravda” (cited in print since 2012) and the “Collusion News Network” (cited in print since 2017).

I’ve called CNN the Clinton News Network, the Communist News Network and now...the Clown News Network. If you’ll look at their parking lot in the morning, you’ll see all the anchors getting out of one little car. THEN the fun begins!

17 September 2015, Dow Jones Institutional News (New York, NY), “Donald Trump: Even I’m Surprised With How Much Air Time I Got at GOP Debate”:
The cover of New York’s Daily News today refers to CNN as the “Clown News Network.”

CNN is a joke.  Literally.  Conan O’Brien, Joel McHale, Larry Wilmore, and even Barack Obama tell the truth about CNN in comedy.  Media analyst Mark Dice has the story.
