Outrage: CNN is Obsessed With Donald Trump! Enough is Enough
"Basketball legend, Turner Sports commentator and NBA on TNT co-host Charles Barkley ripped into his employer`s sister channel CNN for its coverage of the 2016 election.
Barkley`s comments came on Inside the NBA when host Ernie Johnson asked Barkley on Thursday night his thoughts on the state of the race and the upcoming Republican debate, which will be hosted by CNN on Tuesday.
`To be honest with you, CNN has done an awful job this election. They have followed ratings and sound bites this entire cycle,` said Barkley, who is known for saying things off the cuff that can get him in trouble. `Think about it, I love CNN they`re part of our company but they`ve been kissing butt chasing ratings. They`ve become like Fox News for the Republicans to be honest for you. They follow every single soundbite just to get ratings for these debates. And it`s been sad and frustrating that our company has sold its soul for ratings."
TNT and Turner Sports are both part of Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of CNN."
I am somewhat obsessive-compulsive and when a celebrity or politician captures my imagination, I have an irresistible urge to write dozens of articles about my current obsession.
But I`m just a humble blogger and the only ones who suffer from pathology are my readers who number in the few thousands.
CNN is also obsessive-compulsive, when they seize on a story whether it`s a missing plane or a fascist politician, they just won`t let go. Unfortunately, their audience numbers in the millions worldwide.
CNN is currently in a manic phase of all Trump all the time, if Trump tweets " Oh what a relief" after taking a dump in the middle of the night, CNN will immediately convene a panel to discuss the geopolitical and pop culture ramifications of Trump`s bowel movements.
Charles Barkley may be somewhat obnoxious, but sometimes homeboy nails it. Let`s hope another Malaysian airplane disappears so CNN will stop covering Trump non-stop.
