CNN feels that it is their responsibility to serve 0.0001% of the population before they serve you. If CNN is the most trusted name in news than what does that say for the rest of the pack?

Today (Sunday, July 3rd) on CNN’s 5PM ET report, the 1st 9 plus minutes of their broadcast was dedicated to 2 missing person stories. There were live interviews with on the scene reporters located at both locations.

Estimating (actually underestimating) that there are 7 minutes of commercials during the CNN news hour cycle, this would mean that approximately 17% of the broadcast was dedicated to these missing person stories.

Missing person cases affect ONLY the missing persons themselves, the abductors and the families and friends. Others may be concerned, but realistically nobody else is really affected by these incidents. So I am going to estimate that 250 people (and that is a generous estimation) in the United States are affected by these two stories. This means it affects 0.0001% of the American population.

Let me repeat that: 17% of CNN’s broadcast was important news to 0.0001% of the US population!!!

Keep in mind that at any given time in the US there are 90,000 active missing person cases. When you watch this nonsense coverage ask yourself why you are being informed about one or two of the 90.000 cases; then open your eyes and realize that you are not watching news, you are watching a tabloid distraction story and the real news is going unreported.

19 minutes into the broadcast CNN decided to discuss the Valerie Plame leak case. This report deals with treason and it involves members of the White House as high up as the president and vice president. Even though it was revealed 2 days ago that Karl Rove appears to be one of the leakers (or one of the people who committed treason by outing an undercover CIA operative), his name was never mentioned during the report. CNN spent 5 minutes on this story without ever mentioning anything related to the leakers, they only spoke of the reporters involved. This story was a 5 minutes distraction from the real issue which is the dirty lowdown ruthless and criminal tactics of the Bush administration and how they will go as far as to commit treason in order to scare anyone who dares to oppose them. That is what this story is really about. That was not discussed.

The Plame leak story impacts every single American. When treason is committed by members of your government it affects you and your entire nation. CNN feels that it is their responsibility to serve 0.0001% of the population before they serve you. If CNN is the most trusted name in news than what does that say for the rest of the pack?

At 27 minutes into the report another minute was devoted to the missing person cases, so adjust the percentages accordingly. I am not going to force myself to watch the next 1/2 hour of the broadcast.

Anyone who thinks that CNN, or any of their comrades at the other news networks and shows are really reporting news, tape any single hour of any news program on any network. Then sit down with me and I’ll watch with you and I’ll show you that for the most part you have taped an hour of lies, distractions and deceptions. (Let’s not leave out ads disguised as news like movie reviews).

If you want news…turn off your TV and look elsewhere. You want to live in a dream world where the most important thing you need to know is that some family way on the other side of our nation is suffering from a personal loss…CNN & FOX News are for you!

Think about it!
