Criminally Negligent News (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 “Criminally Negligent News.” “CNN = Criminally Negligent News!” was posted on Twitter by Michael Harrington on October 14, 2009.

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 “Clown News Network” (cited in print since 1998), 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), 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).

The Cable News Network (CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner. It was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner as a 24-hour cable news channel. 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.

@CNN C.N.N. = Criminally Negligent News. Using a Pelosi tactic, reporting on events before you know the facts. Typical liberalism.
