Everything Wrong With CNN Encapsulated In A Single Photo…
Oh CNN…let me count the ways…
– Throwing up shows on the air to see if they’ll do anything without any semblance of a strategy.
– Not naming said show.
– Sticking an opinion show inside what my program guide says is a news hour.
– Lack of originality. The View, The Talk, The Five, The Cycle, Outnumbered…they all beat you to it.
– Doing something dumb on the air (see: Lemon, Don)
– Getting more (bad) press for said dumb thing than the rest of the show could generate in total. (again..see: Lemon, Don)
– Reveling in said (bad) press as if anything that generates press is a good thing…the “ratings any way possible” strategy.
– The continued devaluation of your brand.
