CNN - Your new leadership has a frighteningly erroneous opinion about the "big lie"

The new leadership for CNN has stated he thinks the term "the big lie" is a democratic term. That is ridiculous. It MOST CERTAINLY IS A LIE AS EVIDENCED BY MANY EXAMPLES! As we all should know, but apparently we don't, that particular phrase originated with the Nazis. The white supremists which have hideously permeated our society, absolutely deserve to be called on THEIR BIG LIE. The election was not stolen and we had no fraud, thereby substantiating the fact that ii is a BIG LIE, whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent. Maybe your new leadership is a big liar?

This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

CNN has published falsified facts under the pretext of “opinion”. A story was published recently as the “opinion” of the person who wrote the story. But, during their opinionated rambling, falsified information was referenced as facts. In their story the person states the type of weapons used by suspects who attempted to rob a bank in North Hollywood, CA on...

CNN - Racial bias - monkeypox

CNN is using only black people to show the symptons of Monkeypox on its channel. In so doing you are associating the disease with black people. Check your facts because the disease is prevalent in Europe and America and it affects all races. It's not a black disease. Remember that as part of racial prejudice blacks have been called monkeys in order to dehumanize them. Hence your behaviour has hit a raw nerve. In view of the above kindly issue an apology for using only black people to show the symptoms if monkeypox.

CNN - Weather on scroll bottom of screen

Why does the day’s weather scroll at bottom of screen only shows the eastern US, repeatedly. You do realize there’s a western half of the country and we would surely like to know what our weather will be each day. Especially since the unusually high temperatures and drought are allowing a 300k acre fire to continue. Every single morning this pisses me off that the western half of the country doesn’t matter to CNN.

Desired outcome: Scroll the western US weather

CNN - Reporting of even in Israel

Re: The May 13 article by Atika Shubert and Abeer Salman titled "Israeli police beat mourners with batons at funeral procession for veteran journalist."

By Atika Shubert and Abeer Salman.

The article gives the impression that the Israeli police just waited to attack the mourners for no apparent reason. There is more to the event, but the title leaves that out. This is in line with BDS and Aljazeera anti-Israel, and indirectly, anti-Semitic, propaganda.

I expect a higher journalistic standard from from CNN.

Paul Gilon, Vet

Desired outcome: A CNN statement regarding a more objective title of the event.

CNN - CNN news broadcast

Before you go and try to force Twitter to limit "misinformation" perhaps you should look at Twitter's and CNNs previous record for accuracy of censorship. Hunter Biden's laptop, Russian collusion, impeachment evidence, Covid vaccine efficacy rates etc.

That's the problem with censorship...well. that and the constitution of the united states. That's aa sticky problem too.

More people watch re-runs of Tom & Jerry than watch CNN in Primetime, That would be a great joke if it weren't true.

Censorship is treason.

Desired outcome: Fire Don lemon and burn the building.

CNN - Quality

Before you start charging for news how about doing a better job at the free stuff. Bad grammar, bad spelling, broken links. Not occasional-all articles. You show a picture with a news title but no pictures exist in the article. Obvious you hire people who do not have US English as their first language. No one edits the articles. Just BAD workmanship all around. I won't pay for something that clearly would be poor because you have no idea how bad you are. CNN and FOX run neck on neck in bad journalism. I read BBC most of the time because they cover US news better than you do. SAD. There appears to be a reward system for writers based on reads. You have links from articles I want to read to articles I don't want to read just to boost the score for a writer. Please kick these people to the curb. STOP allowing biased reporting. Just tell me the facts don't tell me what to think. Please Stop this bad reporting trend.

Desired outcome: Good, direct, news.

CNN - Interruptions during a news story.

In my zip code, 78539, with Spectrum cable, there are breaks during a news story where ads are inserted. The news story does not pause, but continues and is picked up after the ad. Very frustrating.

Is this a problem with CNN? If not, CNN needs to pressure Spectrum to not cut in during news stories.

This happens at all times, all days, and as far as I know, only happens to CNN.

Desired outcome: Is this a problem with CNN? If not, CNN needs to pressure Spectrum to not cut in during news stories.

CNN - Cuup commercial

We were shocked when we saw the Cuup commercials on CNN news. These commercials are soft porn. We understand commercials will be on but the kind of commercials play a part in whether we continue watching CNN. Now I have to worry if my kids walk in the room? These are young girls posing and moving in seductive ways. These kind of commercials affect young peoples self esteem and plays a part in the outcome in their life. I have to ask what is CNN trying to prove? Are your ratings so low you have to attract men with soft porn?

Desired outcome: Take CUIP Commercials off the air

CNN - CNN/Bianca Nobilo

I like Bianca Nobilo’s news program but I also very much enjoy Jack Tapper’s. I am so annoyed that Nobilo’s program now starts 5 minutes before Tapper’s ends. I watch Amonpour, Hala Gorani, Fareed Zakaria and it is only between Tapper’s and Nobilo’s program this happens. WHY?

This has happend every evening at 10:55 European time this past week.

Desired outcome: Change the timing!

CNN - Cable television complaint

CNN indicated that they would cover the commissioning of the Submarine Delaware. Over the weekend. Rather than allow for President Biden, First Lady Jill Biden and other dignitaries actually be heard, Instead there were the usual analysts telling us what they might say, what they should say, and other unneeded personal opinions. We tuned in to see and hear the commissioning ceremony and its speakers. Poorly and insultingly done because CNN viewers are actually capable of interpreting what speakers say and do. Allow event to actually occur without the usual drivel. At lest, it wasn't Wolf Blitzer telling us every five seconds, repeating what an attack submarine is.

Desired outcome: Let intended dignitaries actually be seen and heard. Save the anaylsis for afterwards.

CNN - The need for the return of Chris Cuomo

I am sorry, but CNN's evening programs need the passion and delivery of content that Chris Cuomo brought every night. He and Don Lemon-- one coming on after the other-- provided news and commentary that so many of us needed. Your other hosts do well, but something vital is missing. Cuomo could have been suspended for a time for helping his brother. However, I think in firing him, CNN has cut off its own foot. I would like to think it was just a shot in the foot because the foot can heal. I really enjoyed Cuomo for the morning show and then for his evening program--so informative! I am telling you--CNN needs Cuomo back!

Desired outcome: Rehire Chris Cuomo. I would like for him to be back on his evening program. There is a serious need for him at CNN!

CNN - Selection of videos shown

It is 3 am and I can’t sleep because I am so angry at whoever allowed video of Ukrainian people being thrown into a grave. The picture of a man’s clothed leg bent as he was tossed in was graphic and disgusting. I am a longtime 70 year old viewer who has supported CNN for years. I am ashamed of the producers or directors who allowed such things to be viewed. There are children in airports watching this! The body was someone’s father/son/friend. Have some sensitively and respect towards this human who has just tragically lost his life! Use some discretion. This is not a video game, it is real life! You do not have to show everything! It is bad enough that this is happening! I struggle to find the right words to talk with my already traumatized granddaughter about COVID and now Ukraine. Shame on you! You have just lost my viewership!

Desired outcome: For directors to think of what/how their show is being viewed by their audience. Use more discretion and sensitivity regarding subject matter. Quit trying to reach for polls and consider young minds.

CNN - Jake Tapper

What the hell is wrong with Jake Tapper? He is baiting, misleading, and just terrible news reporting! Is he just looking for a job with Fox News? This is bullshit and I won’t watch CNN if he keeps this crap up!

I’ll just watch MSNBC for a balanced view. I don’t need any more bullshit news or having a “reporter” try to manufacture controversy! Enough!

Desired outcome: Fire the egotist!

CNN - CNN article is 100% a lie to American people

Donald Trump calling Vladimir Putin a 'genius' was no mistake

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/03/politics/trump-putin-russia-ukraine-graham/index.html

This article states that Trump said Putin is a Genius for taking over the Ukraine. This was a total lie. In the link that has Trumps actual words, it says (SARCASTIC).

This article is trying to frame Donald Trump to like Putin and think his illegal war crimes is good.

This is wrong by CNN and frankly evil.

Here is the real article on what Trump said from their article

https://www.clayandbuck.com/president-trump-with-cb-from-mar-a-lago/

Desired outcome: The need to write a new article stating that they made a mistake. Trump is deeply upset by the war. They need to admit this was a smear campaign.

CNN - All of your networks

Well let see here you hid everything from the american people about the bidens and hunters laptop before the election so you could this fool in office. On his first day of office he shut down the keystone pipeline and last year the us bought 236 million barrels of oil from russia. Where do you think putin got the money for this war we payed for it. The high gas prices food and everything else is your fault and its showing your ratings are down 90 percent. Any one that sponsors your show I hope you like paying the high gas prices. November the american people will turn this shit show around.

Desired outcome: Get on the air and admit you was wrong And How about Hillary 3 years you lied
