Wow it only took them 3 years to switch gears and try to get some viewers back.

That's what we want to believe. I'm sure it was a slip.

They weren't telling the truth for the sake of telling the truth, they were bragging.

Agreed, it just makes me happy to watch them go down.

I wouldn't assume that one throwaway piece indicates a change of course.

Well everything they do is carefully scripted well before, I find it hard to believe that something "slipped through".

I don't think it means CNN is substantially different.

I do think it means that ideological diversity is possible. There are still some on the left that are still liberal and are worth agreeing to disagree with. Jonathan Haidt and Jordan Peterson are also in this same vein.

I actually saw this live while I was waiting in urgent care and I was caught off guard by how.. reasonable it was. I had the same thought you did though, it's definitely just fake shit to try to lure people back in.

Their viewership is up. All news channels have increased viewership. All the major newspapers have increased subscriptions. All this because of Trump.

What about as a percentage? Last I heard CNN was behind HDTV for viewers.

Unless that's a very, very recent development that isn't true and I know it isn't true because I saw the Alexa siteranks before they started to "change" how the data was shown.

Good message until 2:00 where he says...of course conservatives are wrong and stupid but they should still speak.

The pattern is that they are always trying to sell you authoritarianism and it is usually through divisiveness. The Open Society Foundation referred to the strategy as "othering" where "diversity is a tactic, not a value."

You always need a lot of targets to hate. Multiple boogeymen.

The establishment creates the boogeymen on the ground to distract from the real bad guys where they are exploiting rampant corruption in Washington DC.

Sauron is the final boss but you still have to survive the orcs to get at him.

Anyone still in the left/right paradigm OR still watching television deserves an audience of none.

They aren't telling the truth. They are gloating.

It seems the time has come when MSM is going to start mixing more minor truths with their lies to try to get us listening to them again.

I don't think it's going to work.
