    Cable News Network / CNNchris cuomo

    His bias has been over the line for a long time, but labeling me as 'overprotective' of my daughter is the end. His ideology has skewed his thinking to the point what is coming out of his mouth is idiotic, intolerant and insulting. He complains about Trump being on Twitter and he goes and says something like this. Is Cuomo hoping to pick up the Nambla endorsement for a political run?

      Cable News Network / CNNcnn contributors

      I wish to complain about two of your paid contributors. Rick Santorum is on video calling President Obama a government nig-----when he stopped midsentence. We can all guess what nig----- mean't. Also, Sheriff Paul Babeu you have had on talking about border law and security. Here in Arizona he had a male illegal lover from Mexico, and is on tape threatening to deport the illegal if he made their love affair public knowledge. His credibility on border issues is worthless IMO. If you vetted either of these contributors, then you mad a poor decision to have Santorum comment on race and Babeu to give commentary on illegals

        Cable News Network / CNNcnn's dishonesty

        Your reporter asked President Trump today if calling CNN fake news is not corroding the confidence that people have in the news (or something along that line). You bet it is, because your organization's constant attacks, hatred, and dishonesty has by itself lost the trust of the people, including me, who used to regularly watch you. Your company is so far in the tank for liberal progressives and so much against the other Americans it is disgusting. Your reporting and that of other networks is what is whipping liberal progressives into a violent frenzy. I assume it is for ratings because it is not responsible news reporting when you run violence and hatred all day long. There is a huge block of America that are not like that, and you fail to report on them at all, because it does not produce ratings. You cannot seem to see the forest through the trees. You've lost credibility. I'm sure you do know when you report that Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary, it is because most of those votes are out of the liberal progressive state of California. I'd love to watch CNN again, but not until you get some balance back into your reporting, instead of leading (instead of reporting about) a culture war.

          CNNcnn.com

          For the past 7 years, I have been reading the news on Cnn.com, every day, if not more than once a day.

          I'm writing to tell you goodbye. I am disgusted with the one-sided reporting coverage of the race for president. Your reporters attack the GOP nominee in every pathetic opportunity they can think of.

          "Melania Trump wants to stop cyber-bullying, but she doesn't acknowlege that her husband is a cyber-bully."

          Pathetic, and childish. I'm sure I'm not the only person who is done with you either. Say goodbye to a HUGE portion of your audience, because people like me are permanently changing the channel.

              Your news coverage has become truly worse than high school journalism with Gloria B. and Dana B. and those shrill voiced idiotic reporters. But what show do you cut? Saturday after Saturday you axe-- your only own great, intelligent voice -- Smerconish. Saturday after Saturday, your lightweights manage to declare faux Breaking News at both morning and afternoon program times to render him toast. How can you let these nobodies do this? My husband, an M.D. and I, a West Coast writer believe he's the only worthwhile CNN news person worth tuning into. Wolf has become tired; Jay Tapper is meh!; Anderson Cooper when you scratch his shiny surface isn't really that bright. Poppy Harlow is an egomaniac. Either give Michael Smerconish a better time slot, or we're done with you. MSNBC is more relevant for these complex times. Sincerely, Dr. & Mrs. Z. California.

            CNNdon't watch cnn!

            I used to watch CNN in the past. It was great and very informative. But things changed and there's not much left from the good old CNN. Now there's noting but lies, they sold themselves. CNN is very dishonest, they are corrupt and will do everything for money!
            I don't want to watch this channel anymore and all the people I know say the same thing! CNN now is nothing but propaganda!

              CNNpolls

              As a student of statistics during my former university years, I find it extremely misleading of CNN not to disclose the number of people who are questioned on any given poll. To the uninitiated and the average American watching your news programs, it would seem that a huge majority of republicans or democrats or whoever the case may be, have participated in those polls. We who are more aware, know that perhaps 500 people or maybe even 5000 people may have participated and an explanation should be provided by CNN. The point is that your viewers should be allowed to have that information in order to make more informed decisions. I notice that almost always MSNBC does disclose the number of participants when they report the poll numbers. I believe CNN should be more honest with their viewers.

                CNNcnn, wolf blitzer, and 15 december and previous 2015 republican debates

                Most all the questions from the CNN panel, and from "journalists" at previous Republican debates as well, seemed to be designed to have one or more candidates pick a fight with or pile on other candidates. If during their answers to substantive questions such as those listed below, the debate participants want to pick a fight with one another, let them initiate it. Is that really your job as journalists to incite such behaviour? To their discredit, most of the candidates took the bait. There were hardly any questions like these, for example: What is your plan to deal with (name of issue)? How important is that (issue) to you, to the country? What resources should be brought to bear to fix or lessen this problem? How would you propose to pay for this? What experience do you have, or how do you propose, to bring together highly partisan and fractious parties to solve problems? Give us a list of the top 5 or 10 problems facing America. You did not list "XYZ" problem in your list. How big of a problem do you think that issue is? Where would you place it on a list of challenges America faces? Another exercise for the candidates could have been: "Here is a list of problems that are listed by various groups and prominent persons that face this country. During the upcoming commercial break, you will have 2-3 minutes to organize them in their order of importance to you. Then we will ask each of you how you would deal with your top 3 or 5 or whatever. I am confident that, if they try, journalists including you can come up with even more informative and elucidating questions than these to help the American people learn what they need to know about the candidates. Sincerely, Tom PS - I have included below a message sent to Hugh Hewitt about his ridiculous question to Ben Carson ----------------------------------------- To: [protected]@hughhewitt.com Subject: Your Republican Debate Question to Carson on 15 December Seriously?!?!?!? You asked a PEDIATRIC neurosurgeon whether he would have trouble bombing civilians INCLUDING children to protect America. Here's a man who has made clear his position on the general topic of national security AND has saved/improved the lives of many, many children and their families. As I believe this is how he really feels, I wish he had taken a few step towards you on the stage, and looking directly into your eyes, then said, "Sir, I have dedicated my life to saving children's lives so they would have a chance for a better future. As someone who has lived the American Dream myself, if you or anyone thinks I will not do everything necessary to keep Americans safe, especially our children who represent the future of the most exceptional country in history, you and they are sadly mistaken." Mr Hewitt, your question seemed to have come from a leftist mindset, designed for ratings, while attempting to make someone uncomfortable, but in fact it was as ill-conceived as it was fatuous. I hope you heard him later on Hannity where he explained the analytical technique he uses before making important decisions. Perhaps you can use your "considerable" influence to get the Democratic candidates to answer the same question. Hopefully your role in any future debates will be relegated back to the one you had at the MSNBC debate debacle - token Republican questioner. Disgusted and disappointed, Tom

                  CNNfollowing democratic debates failure to include climate issue

                  Does the CNN have a problem reporting Global Warming as a critical issue? The three top Democratic candidates for President all included CLIMATE CONTROL as a major issue. They did not skirt the issue or insulate this issue in scientific jargon; Bernie Sanders, Hilary Clinton and Martin O'Malley consider it important for the American public to recognize this issue. That was clear during CNN's Democratic Debate (13Oct2015). Subsequently today, why does the CNN fail to report Democratic acknowledgement of this issue, in contrast to Republican candidates, of CLIMATE Change and Global Warming in CNN's sound bites today? While I respect Anderson Cooper's leadership during the Democratic Debate, the CNN 'talking heads' that followed failed to call attention to contrast between candidates' position on Climate.

                    CNNmorning programming

                    CNN early morning programming is now the worst in the the business. I'm speaking on Zoraida Sambolin's & Ashleigh Banfield's show. My complaint is really against Zoraida Sambolin more so than Ms. Banfield. Ms. Sambolin is way over her head! Her present & words are a new low. She is far from neutral in her comments; has little creditability in her opinions and needs to show some professionalism.

                    CNN had a reasonable early morning show in the recent past but for unknown reasons, they have replaced good hosts with poorer ones. (Sorry Ms. Banfield, but 'low tides sink all ships' and i fell badly that I'm painting you with the same brush).

                    CNN, please do better in the future.

                        Anthony, when I look at this site that generates weekly thousands of complaints that are not going nowhere, I think: what a world we live in! The world that is ruled by scammers and frauds. Regular ordinary people can only voice their complaints and be read by their peers at this site. The scammers and frauds continue prosper. And bad presenters, that you mentioned in your complaint.
                        It is a sad site! The sad mirror of the modern world.
                        I do not recommend peope to come here if they want to cheer up.
                        Well, Anthony, I invite you to my group, since I am writing to you.
                        My Group is People Against 1and1, but since I do not see people (who were hurt by the company) hurry to unite, I think my group will be flexible and represent the struggle against all kinds of injustice, or wrongdoing.

                        Erwin Burnett needs to be replaced. She is the most biased of all the CNN reporters when it comes to President Trump. I can not stand her attitude and she need to go the sooner the better.

                      CNNintegrity compromised by piers morgan

                      In the wake of the phone hacking scandal by News International, is it appropriate that Piers Morgan maintains such high profile with CNN, when it is increasingly evident that he not only was involved in phone hacking himself, but was willing to tell a barefaced lie in court about it?
                      CNN will seriously need to check what is going on with their brand, which has already given over much important news time to such tittle-tattle as Piers is famous for, if they continue to use such a dishonest individual to deliver their services.

                      Great admiration is still deserved by CNN for its efforts to end human trafficking as well as other global causes. This is not done justice if such individuals as Piers Morgan continue to represent the network.

                                This is a crucial time in the fight for Net Neutrality. The FCC and Redshield America News Network (RANN) is pursuing new Net Neutrality rules; Congress is weighing legislation; and President Obama wants Net Neutrality to become the law of the land.
                                More than 1.9 million people have already urged Congress and the FCC to stand with the public and pass strong Net Neutrality protections. If we can reach 2 million people, we will send a resounding message that Washington can't ignore.
                                Go here to demand that Congress and the FCC stand with the people they represent and support an open and affordable Internet for everyone: http://act2.freepress.net/cms/letter/two_million

                                Thank you,

                                Dear American people,

                                I am so mad and that is not my character. This whole mess has changed my perspective on the legal system, and law enforcement. Nobody can give me back who I was prior to this false charge or time detained in jail. Now that I am out of that cage, I want justice. No I demand justice! Louis Gibson will be a name those will speak and not forget like I will never forget.

                                Take a deeper look at my criminal history and at first glance one can assume negative thoughts. But "first glance", does not mean guilty. This is the first time I have not been able to block corrupt legal hits. But my attitude remains the same. When you are falsely accused stand your ground no matter the outcome! With WSB News reporting the false story on Redshield Entertainment LLC cost me a lot of money and ran my reputation through the dirt. I learned how powerful the media can influence perspective in America or to be specific in Atlanta, Georgia. My wealthy and connected fake friends ran away from me to protect their business. Even those that had thousands invested with my company, and several other business deals.

                                Many may not agree with my methods of posting so many complaints on the internet but I will bare it all to the American people. Several who are commenting are involved in my criminal case and are be exposed by independent investigator and companies that have given me support. I do not have a thing to hide and do not trust the legal system to do the right thing. Everyone will know what corruption is going on in Norcross Police Department and Gwinnett County. They can lock me up but they will not lock up the truth. This is a campaign to expose the corruption and plain lack of justice practiced in Gwinnett County.

                                If you took the time to read the documented facts and spent less time looking at a one side perspective you would have noticed all your questions had been addressed. So for your lack of reading I will address it below.

                                To explain the facts wrong with the piece:
                                1.) Not dozens but five questionable former sales representatives went on camera and Louis Gibson and company did not pay them commission earned. Linda Stouffer, WSBtv News Reporter, did not investigate the allegation made and broadcasted the story. Had she investigated the allegation she would have discovered all commissions are paid on a sixty day pay cycle. No employee/sales representative had been working pass three weeks selling Clearwire mobile internet service out bound to Georgia residents. All sales representatives had been trained at Clearwire Corporate Office in Atlanta, Georgia and had a clear understanding of this policy. The company, Red Shield Entertainment LLC, had no control of this policy because it was a re-seller of Clearwire. No commissions had been paid out to compensate for commissions earned.

                                2.) Who called CEO Louis Gibson a "bold face liar"?
                                Mathew McCloy, a former sales manager, spearheaded this campaign to destroy Red Shield Entertainment LLC and create his own business called Mad Phoenix Technologies, stealing sales representatives, business plans, and trade secretes created by CEO Louis Gibson.

                                3.) Why don't you sue him?
                                He is involved in a civil case currently and the list includes other individual and companies not to be mentioned at this time.

                                4.) Were they your employees?
                                All that worked were sales representative or independent contractors that worked on commission earned only! Clearly stated in a signed contract that outlined all responsibility and pay cycle.

                                5.) They all seem very sincere. How could they all have had the wrong impression they would be receiving a paycheck from you?
                                "Sincere", is a loose word to describe individuals you do not know Zachary S. Two of them were roommates of Mathew McCloy and two did not have any affiliation with the company. Mathew McCloy had several secrete meetings with sales representatives and made promises of early payment of commissions earned if this plan to pressure Red Shield Entertainment and Clearwire with law suite and media coverage.

                                In conclusion, over one year later the facts have come out and Mad Phoenix Technologies in its first month experienced the same set backs Red Shield Entertainment faced due to the sixty day pay cycle of commission. These are all your questions answered with straight facts and were previously explained in details prior. Talks of a retraction are being considered by WSBtv Atlanta News and documentation of Clearwire sixty day pay cycle can be found by contacting:

                                You claim to have just got done suing someone but have a hard time believing that all the people in that video (they interview 4 or 5, but they said about a dozen) right?

                                All cases are not the same for my opening point. And your specific case certainly has no relation to Mr. Gibson case in question. You sued "someone", you stated. However, in Mr. Gibson civil case involves more than “someone” but multiple individuals, businesses, investors and was started in public damaging his business, business relationships, and most of all his reputation. The information related to the case was on television, broadcasted on line, and will be resolved on line, on television, and in a court of law.

                                In turn, the growth of electronic media has made the reporters as much of the story as the public, lawyers (and their clients). The internet has changed how cases are fought all over the world today. What I am saying is this campaign is all part of the case. Even this conversation we are having now. Evidence and traditional legal procedures are evolving due to technology and failure to adapt by lawyers or clients will result in misinformation. The OJ Simpson trial, for example...

                                Look how easy people are to judge Mr. Gibson now despite the evidence being so easily available by a click of a button. You think just because people appear on the news and scream foul play constitutes as factual information? Well you like many Americans are part of the illusion the media can and does have over society in general.

                                By posting fraction of the pertinent details only gathers support from thinking American that when the final puzzle is placed one can view the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This eliminates “anyone” specifically all the childish individuals more concerned with entertainment on complaintsboard.com and to get to those like you that can see pass the uneducated internet stone throwers pleading Mr. Gibson methods are causing them pain or some imaginary financial hardship but still under the media illusion. They respond with insults that have no value in intelligent society.

                                You all sound stupid to come at Louis Gibson when he is right. You all are stupid, for real!
