    Get rid of the Leftist- Progressive loons and replace them with fair & balance news people...the left elites cry but the truth that the FOX news station has more people watching than all the other cable news stations combined on any time slot....Facts..
    And why they do have their conservative talk people but they tell you up front that they are, they do have the opposite points of view come on and the news hours they talk only news....

    loons huh? Typical asinine comments from a mentally twisted individual... very funny. And fox sucks mud just so you know... its a great place for the stepford zombies to recharge their limp hannity gayness. That sack of schit and limbaugh the addict liar are the worst things that ever got air time. . If you are voting for romney you are stupid. and not a christian cause real christians wouldn't vote in a two faced enemy of the middle class that lies everytime he opens his man pleaser.

    I take it you watch CNN LOL, you must be sad.
  • GARY ADLER Ken Ben... 2012/08/14 21:27:12
    typical liberal. Can't discuss facts because they either don't know the facts or don't like them so they resort to name calling like a five year old. Have you ever wondered why your parties symbol is a jackass?
  • BPF53 Ken Ben... 2013/04/05 03:58:09
    Yea I'm going to lose a lot of sleep over your remarks..just keep sipping the kool-aid

    This will only make them less credible than they already are, put Fox News in first place for another 10 years, and will only draw the ignorant immature to their network. The Jersey shore / Jerry Springer type ... you know, Obama supporters .. lol ..
  • Frank 2012/08/14 18:34:40
    So instead of supposedly news anchors spreading BS, they will now have big name stars spreading BS. I've got a good idea why dosn't CNN talk about the real issues currently going on like illegal immigration, the national debt, the real economy, jobs, war instead of womens contraceptives, gay marriage, and romneys tax records, which by the way were filed legally with the IRS.....
  • biggerman 2012/08/14 18:32:48
    Is that "despiration" I smell? Who cares about CNN anyway? They are "old News." They need better looking women but good looking women are Conservative. They need more truth but "truth" and liberalism are mutually exclusive. They need to be "fair and balanced" but when things are truly "fair" Conservatism and Christianity always win. Their screwed. Their time has come and gone. Good riddance.
  • Tre 2012/08/14 18:32:31
    They need to hire some beautiful sexy women to host the majority of the shows. Why you think Fox News has the highest ratings???? It's not because of the news they report because they lie and are agenda based just like all the rest of them. But they have ton of beautiful sexy women who host a lot of shows throughout the day. And they also seem to have a dress requirement that consist of being a short mini skirt with lots of leg showing. Don't believe me, just cut Fox News on and check for yourself.
  • chris.c... Tre 2012/08/14 18:49:49
    Typical Liberal - treats Women like sex objects while screaming that they should be treated equal.......can't figure out why no one takes them seriously..
  • Tre chris.c... 2012/08/16 19:13:04
    Well dummy you got me wrong. I'm not a liberal. I don't treat women like sex objects. And I haven't screamed about treating them as equal either. You got the wrong guy. However, I just merely stated the facts. You are pretty naive if you think otherwise. How many heavy unattractive women do you see on Fox News. Name one when you respond back to me.
  • GARY ADLER Tre 2012/08/14 21:24:26
    They can't hire any sexy women. All the sexy women are conservatives.
  • Tre GARY ADLER 2012/08/16 19:14:48
    I agree with you Gary...
  • Mrs.B 2012/08/14 18:22:17
    Cnn needs to stop being so liberal and stop telling lies to the people.. we see through they BS
  • glen 2012/08/14 18:18:58
    They need another war ! Who's next on the list ?
  • sammanilla 2012/08/14 18:16:29
    Reality shows are the cheapest to produce; that's why CNN is going to them.

    Reality shows are getting old, especially the voyeurism-type, meaning CNN's success with this venture will depend on which reality they turn to.

    My guess is they'll go for the documentary style and not the peeping tom.
  • ManBearPig 2012/08/14 18:02:58
    just shows how desperate CNN is to keep ratings and how dumb their viewers generally are

    CNN is apparently trying to lose even more credibility.
  • Chief 2012/08/14 17:49:07
    I don't see "reality" TV as a way to save a news channel.
  • OneLastWord 2012/08/14 17:42:37 (edited)
    How they going to Pimp for B.O. on a realty TV show?
  • chris.c... OneLast... 2012/08/14 18:52:33
    Race for the Welfare check? Keys for Cadillac’s? Wheel of Unemployment check? Are you smarter than a 2nd grader?
  • OneLast... chris.c... 2012/08/14 19:04:05 (edited)
    Well....you got me their, need to go back to the back of the class i guess.

    Funny though. Ha.

    I hope CNN is just the first to suffer this fate. The mainstream media outlets are nothing more than opinion control for the masses. More people need to wake up and shed their socially conditioned, brainwashed minds and start thinking for themselves.
  • gocar 2012/08/14 17:30:59
    While I like CNN I do not like reality shows. I watch MSNBC until the start with the Lockup crap and then I switch channels. Same with Current TV, they have me until the Drug Wars starts and then I'm gone.

    The Cheezy News Network????? What cheezy reality??
  • David 2012/08/14 17:11:06
    CNN doesn't have a clue as to what reality actually is.
  • LeroyRogers 2012/08/14 17:08:05
    Getting rid of commies like Wolf Blitzer will help.
  • Rob 2012/08/14 17:06:47
    While they're at it they should also add music videos!
  • biggerman Rob 2012/08/14 18:37:14
    How about some Braves games, reruns of Andy Griffith, Leave it to Beaver, and Gunsmoke, a few infomercials and a half hour of News, Weather, and Sports at 6:00 and 10:00. That might give them an audience.
  • Dori 2012/08/14 16:44:55
    They have bogus excuses for newscasters so they're going to turn to either Hollowood or natures freaks to save themselves. Can't wait for the lights to go off.
  • jerry 2012/08/14 16:41:04
    Nope.....Communist News Network (CNN) is fatally flawed because everyone realizes they lie and distort the news for their far-left progressive propaganda purposes.

    They, like most phonies, have become irrelevant. In November, we are going to make another phony irrelevant.
  • sherdon2 2012/08/14 16:28:24
    Maybe they should just try reporting the news.....if they had been more fair with Ron Paul would have helped.
  • Boo 2012/08/14 16:17:23
    Reporting the facts, instead of all the liberal commentary & bias they mix with the news would help their ratings more than anything! This is supposed to be a NEWS channel. Why the hell are they moving to entertainment and reality (NOT) shows? This will probably set their headstone!
  • Job 2012/08/14 16:07:09
    First of all, there are already too many reality shows, why would anybody want to watch yet another one?
    What CNN must do is tackle the news in a realistic way, not just another MSNBC. They must become 'Fair and Balanced' if they want to compete with FOX News Network. Why not have some conservative news commentators like Rush Limbough or Beck? They could really make things interesting because everybody would be watching, and it would really be an exciting show with Limbough or Beck debating a leftwing liberal nutbag, in fact it be far, far, more exciting then watching a reality show.
  • Boo Job 2012/08/14 16:18:55
    Why would anybody watch any of them?! They are the phoniest programs on television.
