So this has been kind of humorous. I've been following the stock market for the past month, more closely on Christmas Eve through today, and that poor headline writer!

In bold letters, "Stock Market Rebounds" where you can see the ticker is down 200 points. "Stock Market Sell Off" where you can look at the ticker and it's up 150 points. The poor guy!

The headline bounced back and forth hourly, even several times in an hour.

He's finally settled on "Stock Market Turbulence". Whew. Take a coffee break!

The page is probably so overwhelmed with all the clickbait stuff at the bottom that it can't remember which file to use for the news.

CNN has become a tabloid news organization

CNN as a news organization remains better than most. Their online presence, however, has devolved to the trashiest levels and it's almost impossible to separate the real, ongoing news they (internally) cover so well from the rising tide of crap and clickbait and interference from the bottom of each page.

I haven't looked at any main stream news papers or on line sites for years. In that overly contentious space of divisive journalism, it's always a choice of GOP or Democrat tripe that dominates the day. I like the Counterpunch, and James Kunstler's site for the fact that they call out both camps for their BS, mainly because that's the way news used to be reported, back when journalists did the sorting out of all that party driven nonsense and tried to report the truth...

I'm not sure that reading any selective news site, regardless of (perceived) quality, is sufficient. You're just choosing your own echo chamber even if the reporting on that small slice of events is impeccable.

We are in an era where partisan politics is the overwhelming driving factor... and I think it's essential to keep that in focus whether you like one side's reporting or not. Pretending it's a sideshow and will go away if you ignore it is... pretty much how we've gotten to this terrifying point.

Having one's own "echo chamber" isn't the same as perusing the various writer contributions found on sites which are open to all points of view, there's a ton of stuff on Counterpunch that would most likely delight readers of both parties to no end. I tend to read it all and then determine the truth of things usually found scrunched in between the partisan hoopla. I don't follow either party and further, I'm convinced that millions of us are also climbing above the pettiness of party politics.

CNN used to be better before the 2016 election. Now it's just the Fox News for Democrats. 99% biased opinionated stuff.

Fox News has no counterpart of any kind. They should just change their name to RMVP and be done with it.

CNN devolved to this strange garbagefest presentation long before 2016.

CNN lost all credibility decades ago when it became the Clinton News Network.


Its lack of credibility is only surpassed by MSNBC.
