I Have Decided That CNN Covering The Diamond Jubilee Instead Of American Politics Is Fine With Me | Jason Linkins | Posted 08.06.2012 | Politics

Here is CNN's entire strategy for covering political outcomes: everyone run around the room like a bunch of rabid chimps on salvia, doing stuff, doing it harder, doing it faster, doing it until everyone drops dead of exhaustion or secures a note from a therapist, excusing them from the activity. If the end result of an evening spent watching CNN "do" politics is just the depressing feeling you get watching all that human wreckage frenetically destroying its own dignity, then I say give me the Queen! Give me Piers Morgan, randomly exulting at the sight of barges on the Thames. Let these poor CNN people numb themselves forever in slack-jawed appreciation of the royal family's collection of fascinators and epaulets. Let CNN play to its strengths. Let's save the human race from the Prometheus monsters.
