CNN calls Biden "Indecisive" in the headline on the website.

[link:https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/25/politics/joe-biden-student-loans/index.html|

"How an indecisive Joe Biden finally made his mind up on student loan debt"

snip:

"Even for a famously indecisive President, the question of whether to use executive powers to forgive student loan debt appeared particularly long and drawn-out. Interviews with nearly a dozen people familiar with internal deliberations revealed a myriad of factors fueled the delay, none more than Biden's concerns over inflation and his insistence that the forgiveness plan would not be seen as a handout to the wealthy."



REALLY CNN??? "Famously indecisive President"

1. The new 'fact-based' CNN, or just further right wing leaning

2. They seem to want to toss a little red meat to both sides. Interesting strategy, be interesting to

see how it works out for them.

3. Might be a marketing strategy as MSNBC gaining on the left. Try to go more rightward lean, for

viewers leaning away from some left voices.

4. CNN is third in ratings for cable news

So they’ll just drive away more viewers with the right wing bs talking points.

Rarely if ever do I watch CNN.

5. The new winger boss met with top repubs recently and asked...

how CNN can get their support back. His new policy directives are noticeable in the wordings and questions of on-air hosts and screen chyrons. This ass will fail as CNN is already third rated and this rightward lurch isn't gonna help as it'll just lose center left and left viewers and being FOX lite damn sure isn't going to pull FOX viewers.

It's silly IMO.

These fawning sycophants can go fuck themselves. I won’t spend one second on their website or their network.

12. It's the direction it's corporate sponsors and advertisers want.

Helping the lower and middle class is not the corporate way.

it then you know it's happening and I will be the first one to voice by displeasure.

it already. But I will certainly await your verdict on this matter.

18. To the poor idiots who just need their media paycheck he probably does look indecisive

"But, but he didn't rush passionately to our cameras and excite our viewers! He didn't negotiate on air with Congress with our talking heads nodding and giving their expert opinion! What about my paycheck? Biden didn't do enough to help me keep my paycheck!"

No, he didn't. But he got things accomplished in bills that will dwarf the Republican subversion of the Supreme Court to politics.

you will not woo Fox viewers over to you. They are just not into you.

Meanwhile, say goodbye to anybody with a brain.
