Kinda love that Jake Tapper unabashedly has a Minecraft mug on his anchor desk.

“Michael Jackson made a very creepy return to the stage… as a hologram.”

A CNN anchor introduced the story about the Michael Jackson hologram thusly.

How soon they forget.

If CNN was a pregnancy test from last night’s Saturday Night Live.

Swear to fucking God, CNN has had a reporter inside a flight simulator in Canada for the past FOUR DAYS covering the Flight 370 story. 
Today they are “flying” over the site where debris, possibly from the doomed plane, was found.  Because this is how you should cover this story: inside a Canadian flight simulator.
Even anchor Carol Costello must be doing a facepalm.

“The streets are empty. It’s eerie. It’s as though a bomb had dropped somewhere.”

CNN reporter SUSAN CANDIOTTI, reporting from Watertown, Mass., just days after the — oops! — Boston marathon bombings, via The Colbert Report.

Both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert aired the very same soundbite, which, along with John King’s “dark-skinned male” report, should give CNN pause the next time they claim to uphold any standard of broadcast journalism.

“In this age of instant reporting, and Tweets, and blogs, there’s a temptation to latch on to any bit of information — sometimes, to jump to conclusions. But when a tragedy like this happens, with public safety at risk and the stakes so high, it’s important to do this right. That’s why we have investigations. That’s why we relentlessly gather the facts. That’s why we have courts. That’s why we take care not to rush to judgment — not about the motivations of these individuals, and certainly not about entire groups of people.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA, at the White House.

Hey, wanna guess which CNN reporter was sitting in the front row in the press room when the President said this?

Yep: John fucking King.

John King.

  • It’s a little clearer now that John King of CNN reported some bullshit when he insisted that there was an arrest in the Boston bombing cases, and even more bullshit by saying one of those arrested was a “dark-skinned male.”
  • The question is this: What will CNN do about it?
