The "breaking news" on CNN right now is about Justin Bieber.  I don't know anyone over the age of 13 who gives two craps about JB.   :shrug:

Figuring the heads of the CNN news division are not stupid....the question that needs to be asked is, "Why are we continuing to lose viewership, despite having captive audiences in virtually every airport and tran station in the country?"

The look at the leader FOX NEWS and you must come away with one of two things.

1) They are leftist ideologues at the top and in the board room and cannot go back on their principles despite a bankrupt marketing strategy.

2) They are silenced by direct threats by the Administration and/or their agents.

It doesn't help that they hire the dumbest dipshits on the planet.......... compared to the lineup at Fox where (for the most part) they are very intelligent (Greta, Megyn, Cavuto)
