They have taken a path that should just send shivers down anyone's back who is interested in good journalism. I detest opinionated new journalism (FOX and to a lesser degree MSNBC), but CNN's has started down a path I call "emotional journalism".
It's sickening beyond belief....stomach turning. I'm not sure what revolts me more...Sean Hannity or one of CNN "journalists" going for the emotional jugular in every story they cover.
putrid. sad. pathetic.”

“In print news it used to be called 'yellow journalism' but at this point they've already gone over that line.”
“I couldn't disagree more.....it's been more than 10 years since an SEC Defensive Player of the Year did not get drafted by the NFL. This kid has MORE than enough talent for an NFL team to take a chance on him.”
“The NFL better make sure Sam gets drafted, because there is absolutely no reason WHATSOEVER that a team in the league would not take a chance on a kid with his talents.
If he does not get drafted......it's going to be a big black eye on the NFL because there is no reason whatsoever for a player with his talent not to be drafted.”

“Please. Do some research. He did awful at the combine. What would be a shame is if a kid with more talent got left out so a politically correct choice could be made.”

“And you are a talent scout for which NFL team? I have consistently read where he is a classic tweener. Too small for an NFL line, Too slow for a linebacker. He proved those scouts right at the combines.”

“more than likely he'll get invited to camp as a FA. A DE that will be converted to OLB with the low times he had (including the slowest cone-time of all DEs at the combine). He's slow for a DE which means he's really slow for a OLB (4.91 40YD). Clowney ran a 4.53 40. Dallas has 5 of the last 30 picks. See if Jerry Jones takes a flyer... Pokes need a lot of help on DEF.”
“Society has blown so fast and so far past these types that they still haven't even caught on as to where we are now as a society.
Things have moves so fast that the idea of an openly gay NFL player is old at this point. We all know there are plenty of them and we all know they should be able to live their lives as openly and as honestly as any straight player.
“You just explained in one small paragraph everything that is wrong with journalism today. Find and outrageous statement or better yet get someone to say something outrageous on the air live and then gather people around and say "REACT"
“Sorry I don't judge families from the outside. We don't know what happened inside that family. All we know is that it was a very unconventional family and Mia was EXTREMELY hurt over Woody's relationship with her adopted daughter. That's all we know.”

“We know, from Dylan, the adult that she was abused by her father. It is no longer a matter of Woody and Mia and their relationship. Dylan the adult has thrown down the gauntlet. That is pretty powerful stuff.”
“CNN is pretty much unwatchable at this point. It's a shame too, because there is a real urgent need for a news network that actually just does the news.....like they used to....good old fashion just the facts, jack, good old fashion journalism.”
