Has CNN Learned Its Lesson Yet After Boston And Jodi Arias?
They are a laughing stock now. They need to fire Nancy Grace and co at HLN, dump Chris Cuomo and the rest of the idiots they just hired, and dump Jeff Zucker. How much longer can this go on with Jeff coming out and proclaiming how valued CNN is after America witnessing their coverage of these events??
If they could just bring on Ann Curry, things would start to move up again.
CNNHL does very well ratings wise with their murder coverage. America loves to watch crazy white chicks who kill.
I loved what Jon Stewart called Nancy Grace the other night : an engorged tragedy tick.
Uh, Zucker has already moved CNN up to the #2 spot. And in May, HLN just might take the #3 spot. He ain't going nowhere.
His one glaring misstep was "The Point" That show was so unbelievably bad.
It's all about ratings. MSNBC would like some of those ratings.
Jon Stewart should make sure his crazy wife gets a driver's licence and uses it.
I can watch Nancy Grace and her brand of crazy, fully understanding why she is reviled, but she doesn't bother me for some reason. Chris Cuomo makes me uncomfortable to watch, though, because he is so awkward and self-conscious and douchey. I feel embarrassed for him. Grace is like watching a carnival side show. But Cuomo makes me squirm and I usually have to change the channel.
you must be a lesbian r7. Cuomo is a masturbatory fantasy inspirerer! (but yes he is kind of a dope...but as if that ever mattered)
love your handle, r2
so to speak
R8, I am a gay man but looking for intelligent, articulate reporting with gravitas, not a masturbatory fantasy. For mature adults....it matters.
Yes, Cuomo seems to have gotten worse, he sounds like a novice, very awkward and sometimes too overbearing. He'll probably be lousy on CNN's morning show.
Are all the Cuomos touched with the special stick? They all sound slightly retarded when they talk. Also, he's a shit journalist.
At least Nancy Grace is amusing. I don't know why anyone would agree to go on her show unless they enjoy getting yelled at.
HLN might be the one laughing. Their numbers grew.
I'm not surprised though. We live in a world that follows the Kardashians.
I liked that Phil Donahue-style format Anderson used for his show Friday (the missing children show); I'd like to see more of that from him.
anybody out there
Their reputation is sensational foolery. Ever notice the mental comment section on their ws??
Cuomo is a homophobe.
[quote]Uh, Zucker has already moved CNN up to the #2 spot.
For two seconds. Zucker destroys everything he touches. The network got a bump thanks to 24/7 Jodi Arias coverage, and people tuning into see all the Boston Marathon gaffes.
Zucker will be out of a job a year from now, and CNN will be sold.
[quote]HLN might be the one laughing. Their numbers grew.
No one doubted that that would happen. It happened with "Tot Mom." The fact is, CNN's brand is completely tainted. Many people don't know that HLN is the sister network to CNN. CNN is now becoming HLN, because that's where the ratings are. What does that mean? CNN will becoming MTV, selling out music for reality shows because it sells. CNN will no longer be known as a news network. It'll be TMZ. No worries though, FOX is basically that too. They'll put women on with their tits hanging out for ratings. It's Mudoch after all. He puts topless women in his newspapers.
You're fucking delusional r17.
As been said, most people will not turn to MSNBC for important breaking news. They go with CNN or Fox.
Cuomo was always tender and loving towards Sam Champion. I doubt he's a homophobe even though r17 says it with no evidence.
BTW r17 sounds deranged.
MSNBC has more ass whippings coming up because the George Zimmerman trial kicks off on June 10.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
