Tensions rise at CNN as the network aims for Trump

CNN is taking an increasingly negative approach toward its coverage of President-elect Trump, causing at least some tension within the network, inside sources told the Washington Examiner.

Trump, according to a New York Post story, told the network he wasn't happy with their coverage during an off-the-record meeting at his headquarters in Trump Tower this week. Trump critiqued the news media at large during the meeting, but CNN was one of the top targets, according to the Post's report.

Though Trump's team has said the meeting wasn't as tense as the Post's report, two high-level sources at CNN confirmed that their network was a primary target of the president-elect.

"CNN has always pledged to hold Trump accountable and that's what we should be doing," another source told the Examiner. "Since the election, CNN has out MSNBCed MSNBC," the source said, referring to the liberal slant at CNN's competitor. "In the long term, that's a dangerous place to be."

It is much worse than snowflake.
Whatever that means.

It is part of a totalitarian dictatorship.
CNN helps to provide the mind control of the population.
The oligarchy who rules over us through the use of government is quite evil.
That oligarchy owns CNN and other MSM outlets.

There is no true news service any longer. How this ever happened and how fast it came about is mind-boggling.
I'm a news freak. I watch them all. But now I get what I feel is honest, straightforward, news from overseas, particularly the London Daily Mail.
Here's just one prime example:
Aleppo... From the US news reports, just one huge wasteland at constant war.
From foreign news service reporting you get information on the fighting, but you also get the movie schedules, wedding announcements, open market events, etc., just regular day-to-day living (except for the rebel fighting, of course).
The American news service is NOT fully reporting these situations.
Instead, it reports only what will further their personal causes.

I agree.
Except it furthers the causes of the MSM corporate owners.
The bankers.

Ratings "supposedly" feeds the networks. If numbers are high, then the networks can charge MORE for commercials...etc..etc..etc.

News networks don't understand they are killing themselves in the future with not trying to get the next gen viewer. Today's population majority won't be around in 20 years...then again who cares right?

Make $$$$ now and don't worry tomorrow.

(psst - that thinking has killed nations)
