In a desperate bid to seem hip, or reclaim some of the viewers they have lost of late to other cable news networks, CNN has launched a series of new segments. "Just Sayin'"..."Are You Kidding Me?"..."What The..." have all invaded the news network, taking on serious topics with ridiculous attitudes.
The Urban Dictionary defines "Just Sayin'" as "a term coined to be used at the end of something insulting or offensive to take the heat off you when you say it." They cite this example:
Jordan: Anna you have really let yourself go.
Anna: What the hell! What is your freaking problem?!
Jordan: Just sayin'
Anna: Oh well in that case, I suppose its okay.
Anna: Fer Sure
Oh, also this:
Dude, your bitch has cankles...just sayin'.
Despite all this, CNN has deemed this segment worthy of covering the future of feminism, affirmative action and health care reform. Suffice to say, Jon Stewart was absolutely giddy as he slammed the network asking, "Wanna know what I'm just thinkin'?"
