F**king CNN.

This idiot is talking about how "bad" Obama looks in the Russia scandal. Of course he leaves out a LOT of details, like how hard McConnell and the Dump Campaign worked to stop Obama's admin from doing anything. Even so, he minimizes the sanctions the investigations, etc., just to talk about how BAD Obama comes out it this.

And then fucking CNN puts it at the top page with a big picture of "Bad" Obama.

4. It's far more important to ask what is being done NOW to protect the 2020 elections.

11. Fair question.

And in my defense, I didn't. I put the link, and I put in GD since it's not "news" of any kind. The relevant fact is that CNN put it at the top of their page with a picture of Obama. And yes it says "Opinion" or "Analysis" up in the corner, but just having that image with that headline up there was aggravating.

I'm working on calming down now.

8. President Obama is another one who won't lose a single supporter

There’s no need to worry. The only people who hate him are the same one’s who have always hated him. CNN is wasting its time thinking they’ll change those statistics.

9. It's an opinion piece by conservative commentator Scott Jennings,

so consider the source. It’s not CNN any more than the op-ed pieces in a newspaper are the same as its own editorial opinions.

10. That's an opinion piece from a guy that worked for McConnell, but I know what you mean

 

He even twisted the McConnell lie about warning the nation but McConnell wouldn't. He stated his proof as McConnell signing the letter to the states which is what McConnell said was all he would do. McConnell would not go public with the Russians hacking. I don't get putting an opinion piece so prominent though...

14. I would suggest turning them off

CNN and the rest of the Cable Noise is nothing more than Infotainment with an occasional brush up against journalism but mostly just designed to fill air time between ads for drugs we never knew we needed.

16. Scott Jennings is a right wing republican.

He worked for Bush 43 and Mitch McConnell. That information is right above the article.
Having an opinion piece from someone who doesn't share one's view doesn't make it "F**cking CNN." Come on, it's "Opinion" and not presented as "News."

17. It's not even opinion,

 

it's a misrepresentation of the news. President Obama wanted Republicans (McConnell) to go along with a bipartisan announcement that Russia was meddling in our election. McConnell refused to go along so Obama didn't want to make it look like a partisan issue.
