Editors’ Notes

We’re diehard fans of 24-hour news channels, and CNNGo combines the depth of CNN’s reporting and original programming with the instant gratification we crave. A constantly updated package of on-demand top stories gives us the immediate news fix we need, while cable subscribers can stream CNN and HLN live right on Apple TV. We can neither confirm nor deny reports that we say “THIS…is CNN!” every time we fire up the app.

CNN-The Real Fair, Balanced, and Truthful News!


I love CNN because they give the true story, and they aren't afraid of trump, and his minions when they do! Fox News claims to be entertainment tv only, not a news channel! That must be true, because you can't get real news from them, they're a total republican Channel! You will never get the true story from Fox, and certainly never the entire story! CNN will give you complete, and accurate reporting, and stay impartial when they do! CNN doesn't blow smoke up your a_ _ , and tell you everything's wonderful so trump won't freak! You just get the news, and truth in their reporting, no matter if trumps going to like it, or not! Trump tries to be like a dictator, pressuring, and bullying the media to cover up the truth about him, and his administration! CNN won't buckle to trumps pressure, they just keep reporting the truth about every dirty, rotten, thing he's doing behind our backs, and to our country! That is most appreciated! The app's great too!

Unbiased Reporting but Heavy App Design


I noticed a few reviews by biased Trump supporters that do not like seeing any negative reporting on his performance. Unfortunately, news agencies report on both the good and bad. There has just been more negative than positive to report on with the current presidency. However, CNN, while slightly liberal has reported factually over the decades. Look thru their records and you’ll see plenty of negative press for Obama and Clinton and plenty of positive press for both Bushes. The reporting has always followed the actions of our president with accuracy.

As for the app design, it’s a bit heavy with oversized elements that make it hard to scan and preview without lots of oversized graphics/images. I guess the new thing is to create news that is more similar to a 3 year old’s picture book (with PowerPoint style videos - just photos with oversized captions). They have less and less word articles to READ and it’s sorely missed. They put advertising before reporting the news.
