    Acosta thinks his network doesn't spin or color things a certain way. Viewers are not agreeing with him as CNN is losing them to the point of laying off people. Plus former employees say the company reeks of hatred for Trump.


    Link to videos of CNN cutting off mics or losing satellite feeds when someone goes against their agenda and candidate.

    Here's a sample



    And then there's CNN giving Clinton debate questions.

    CNN is in its death throes right now, they are having their last gasp, throwing that Hail Mary pass.

    They know the writing is on the wall....there are too many leftist organizations buckling right now and they are trying to prevent not being the first to go.

    ThinkProgress already is done and the next victim is right around the corner.

    If you want to live in a country where the media do not criticize politicians' lies, you can go live in Russia.

    Unless you want the US to become like Russia and all the media to be like Fox.

    Only normies and progressives would entertain the idea that CNN isn't biased.

    Your third sentence contradicts the other two...in addition to avoiding my statement.

    But I understand that it's very easy for you to shoot the messenger, CNN, than the message.

    Because demonstrating that Trump never lies would take up a lot of your time.

    If mostly liberal people watch CNN, then it can only mean it's mostly liberal people who are abandoning it.

    There is a major difference been criticizing and making out right lies and bullshi& and calling it true. That is number 1. Number 2) The job of the media isn't to criticize, its to report facts to the public who are ones to criticize.

    The ONLY time I watch CNN is when Carlson or Hannity play a video clip of their insanity and then shred them to pieces.

    Nah.

    I'd like the Legacy Media to go after any politician, official, or general famous person no matter their politics - and that includes Trump. Lord knows he's done stuff that should be reported on unfavorably. Problem is, CNN has gone after any RW pol and especially Trump like Oprah on a twelve-course meal. Meanwhile, they're lobbing softballs at any LW-er. It's kind of obvious any time I'm at the doctors office; CNN is on there - only time I watch it - and just over the past four-five years I've had to practically live at his office, I noted a marked difference in how CNN treats politicians based on their schema.

    I don't agree that CNN and the Legacy Media is the Enemy of the People - but I DO believe that CNN is the enemy of professionalism. They've essentially sold out their credibility in order to get Trump. And it's nearly Trump 24/7 over there, near as I can tell. These guys have a hard-on for getting him. Given that, it's hilarious that you have anyone at CNN saying they don't have a bias.

    There were plenty of shady things that happened under Obama's watch - can you imagine CNN going after Barry the same way they are now after Trump? That's the big problem - The Legacy Media and CNN are supposed to be treating BOTH of them the same.

    Call me when Hannity and Carlson lose audio or satellite feeds when a guest says something they don't like.

    So don't watch them.
