It's common knowledge that CNN, The Onion, The Colbert Report, MSNBC, The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live and are all minimally entertaining parody news shows. Surely noone out there is dumb enough to actually believe its real news.

Is there any chance that this is costing ted turner money?
CNNDNC's ratings have been dropping for a while, but they chose to double down on being fascist propaganda, like MSDNC, and they don't seem to care.
CNN’s parent company is Time Warner. I am not sure what impact CNN has on TW earnings.
Yeah, well sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

They don't seem to think there's anything to fix. They continue to double down on the same old suspects.
Promote Anderson Cooper and Trump bad and stupid, about absolutely anything.
Rinse and repeat, all day long.

A news agency should report verified facts and let the viewers decide what the story means to them. In my mind all news agencies strayed from their primary goal when they started putting 'spin' on stories to influence public opinion.
They dove off the cliff when they took a political stance and used that as the lens used to project the stories.

It took me a very long time to understand why people who hate a BS media network continue to watch (and indirectly support) it. It finally dawned on me, though, that the vast majority of Americans watch so-called “news” programs not to be informed, but to be entertained. Sometimes they’re entertained by attacks on people they don’t like, but very often they’re entertained just as much by being outraged and being given the opportunity to rail at the personalities who present that entertainment: It’s really no different than going to an old-timey type melodrama at the Butte Theater in Cripple Creek and hissing the villain.
“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage [immaturity]. Nonage is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance.”
— Immanuel Kant

as a thought exercise, knowing what you know about all the performers at CNN
which one would you trust if they decided to tell the truth, and then how long would it be before they started to lie again?
Participating in a gun buy back program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids

I was watching some content on PlutoTV (or possibly Tubi) and damned if a dumbass CNN spot come up during commercial breaks. It showed an apple and decried those who screamed it was a banana saying "facts first" implying that they have the right goods. Fucking delusional bullshit.
I won't foul the forum with it but for those curious here's a duckduckgo search result:

None. They've demonstrated they're not to be trusted.

The dominant media is no more "mainstream" than leftists are liberals.
They can't become defunct soon enough for me, however I guarantee they will DEMAND government funding for the sake of "equal time" for opposing views.
Federal funded public broadcasting is 100% commie Trump bashing and I am sick of paying for it.
Eeewwww, don't touch it!
Here, poke at it with this stick.
