Breaking CNN!


CNN cutting back on over-hyping everything as “breaking news”

CNN’s new boss Chris Licht says that beginning today, CNN has added a “Breaking News” guideline to its stylebook, to address overuse of the breaking news banner across its network and cable news writ-large.

Why it matters: Licht and Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav have made it a priority to dial back on partisan programming at CNN in favor of traditional journalism.

  • “We are truth-tellers, focused on informing, not alarming our viewers,” he said in the note obtained by Axios.

    I think that this could actually be viewed as a good thing, provided CNN isn’t just paying lip service to the idea (which is quite likely the case).

    Truth is partisan when one side lies.

    CNN has been contemptible for more than a generation. Expect nothing and you won’t be disappointed.

    Maybe they just need an updated relabeling such as “New Improved Breaking News” or “Lowfat Breaking News”.

  9. Things probably reached it’s tipping point when they had “BREAKING! DEPP HEARD VERDICT IN!” or, at least I hope so. I swear to god, their front page has Kardashian articles … wtf. They can’t decide if they’re the National Enquirer or not.
