Tweet Follow me CNN just had a segment devoted to “Black Nerds” that was just completely annoying. The reason is, Carolyn Costello, the CNN Anchor over the telecast, was trying to push being black and being a nerd as something new, and the guest, some brother with the Tampa Bay Tribune, who’s name I didn’t catch, just went along with it. In his case, and what set me off, was that he said he didn’t have a black role model for being a nerd. Then, he associated nerdom with pop-culture,...

Tweet Follow me Candy Crowley, long-time CNN political correspondent and the first female moderator of a Presidential Debate since 1992, handled her first time at bat at the second Presidential Debate for 2012 very well. The problem is that Mitt Romney stepped into a deep do-do of a shit pile, when he tried to say that President Obama didn’t use the term “terror” in his post Bengazi-attack Rose Garden speech. Here’s what happened, courtesy of the Zennie62 video: Now, TMZ.com reports that...

Tweet Follow me CNN’s own poll, just released minutes ago, shows President Obama ahead of Mitt Romney among likely voters 50 percent to 47 percent, but while CNN reports the poll as close – even with President Obama having an three-point lead, the poll has design problems. From CNN: “Battle for presidency remains close in new CNN poll” Fifty-percent of likely voters questioned in the CNN survey, which was released Monday, say that if the election were held today, they would vote for the...

Tweet Follow me CNN’s all over the The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, 2012, and you can tell that Englishman Piers Morgan, selected as the lead host with leggy American Brooke Baldwin (who sounds like she’s developed a bit of a British accent she didn’t have in Atlanta) is just plain proud and happy. Maybe too much so. Piers...

Tweet Follow me The Huffington Post has a story on how CNN’s ratings have hit a near-rock-bottom 20-year-low in primetime. Apparently CNN drew an average of just 389,000 primetime viewers from April 30 to May 27 of 2012. To show you how low that is, the best this video-blogger’s YouTube channel has done is 252,000 viewers in one...

Tweet Follow me According to Deadline.com, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight clocked in its lowest ratings in the year it has been on cable television. The show averaged 154,000 nightly viewers in its demo in Novvember, down 4 percent from the performance of the previous show Larry King Live in the 9 PM time slot for November of 2010. By contrast, CNN’s competitor shows MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Show and Fox News’ drew 201,000 and 258,000 average viewers in the 25 to 54 year old demographic. That means...

Tweet Follow me The GOP Debate last night on CNN was insane, and Anderson Cooper seemed to enjoy every moment. The candidates ran amok at certain points, most notably Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. The two had some back and forth banter and Romney even put his hand on Perry at one point. It got very intense and rather unprofessional. The focus that stayed on those two was mostly due to the fact that they seemed so childish up on stage interrupting one another; CNN analysts who interviewed those in attendance believe...
