So is CNN changing to TNN? Trump National Network?

AdLib2 hours ago

So much to talk about

Well, why not? It seems one of the main owners is a Libertarian and Trump supporter.

I saw clips and it was a total farce.

I have been enjoying how everyone is slapping down CNN and Anderson Cooper, who made a BS excuse for it.

AdLib2 hours ago

Well, he stepped in it with his inane comments.

And the ratings on Thursday, the following day, were actually down a little so it didn’t help them after destroying their rep.

TW – How condescending and gaslighting for Cooper to blather about people choosing to stay in “silos”. As if no one knows what a beast Trump is? After everything that’s happened in the past 7 years???

TW As I think said, Greg and I both had COVID about two months or so ago. Ever since, nothing tastes good. I CAN taste things, but they’re blah. I’m looking for a good libation. Had a margarita last night w a friend. Meh. Who can’t taste THAT? I’m sad.

Ad, noticed that. But, what I also noticed was the stills that were shown of the audience not everyone was clapping that told me a lot.

twilson117

TW – I did notice that. Not everyone thought Donald funny. Not at all.

choicelady

CL – That’s messed up. You may have to season and flavor foods stronger for the time being. Maybe that would help?

AdLib2 hours ago

CL I was thinking Margaritas but guess that is out.

twilson117

CL actually I can’t remember the last time I had one.

Ad – Anderson Cooper MIGHT be right about communication with people not like oneself, but that is NOT Trump. Trump is THE silo. We see him, hear him, are fed UP with him and his lies. I have no interest in talking to people who live in his cult and with his delusions. That’s not being in my ‘silo’ but being an active and aware American.

Ad – seasoning helps, but the receptors are quite weird. Some things are fine. Others are – meh.

TW – Did you see that CNN told the crowd not to “boo” or express any dissatisfaction at anything Trump said? That means it was rigged to only allow cheering for Trump. This totally blew up any journalistic integrity CNN had. Done and many people are deleting their app and vowing to stop watching them. And MAGAs are laughing at them and uninterested in watching them despite their sponsoring a Trump rally.

AdLib2 hours ago

CL just did a quick look up and what it said it will come back but it will take time about 18 months.

twilson117

2 hours ago

Ad – the only legitimate reason for an audience being told not to boo Trump was to save their lives. And that didn’t seem to be at immediate risk.

choicelady

2 hours ago

Ad read that, talking about wanting to control. I also read that the Trump team pulled a fast one on CNN saying they were open to a back and forth, lies like everything Dump does.

twilson117

2 hours ago

TW – That’s what I read. Sigh. It’s not that I’ve lost taste and smell, but it’s reduced and dodgy. Even bacon and coffee seem – bland. I can’t imagine how bad it is for people who have NO taste and smell. Yikes.

choicelady

CL – I agree, the concept of people not residing in news silos is legit but that was not what made people angry at CNN. We all know who Trump is, that his goal is to overthrow our democracy and that he’s committed crimes, tried to overthrow an election, stole money, sexually abused women and promotes hatred, violence and racism. There is no silo that any anti-Trump person could reside in where they don’t know who Trump is. Cooper was knowingly gaslighting and frankly, being a tool of his corporate pro-Trump masters. I am done with that fraud.

AdLib2 hours ago

CL well let’s hope it comes back sooner than what is reported out.

twilson117

2 hours ago

TW – why would CNN think Trump told the truth? He never has.

choicelady

CL I know.

twilson117

CL – I sure hope this is a temporary thing and that you and hubby get more of your tasting back.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad – EXACTLY. We don’t live in our silo. HE does, and CNN fell for it. We aren’t the dorks here. They are.

choicelady

2 hours ago

TW – Thanks. I would like to enjoy smell and taste more again SOON.

choicelady

2 hours ago

CL – Exactly. It’s clear that Licht made a deal with Trump that catered completely to him to make it the best possible promotion for Trump that it could be. It’s pretty sick for an alleged real news entity to concoct a propagandized rally for a fascist criminal and sexual abuser.

AdLib2 hours ago

Ad – Greg has both smell and taste. I’m the one impaired. The problem is that I’m the cook – and without those senses it’s hard to prepare food. No clue if it’s too much, too little – weird. I’m once again wedded to the written recipe. It’s weird.

choicelady

If FOX was crumbling, and CNN was crumbling, and MSNBC is growing in followers, well – Licht is emulating a losing entity. Hand writing on the wall says America is done w RW extremism.
