Trump making me less critical of CNN!

Five stars for keeping on keeping on despite Mr. Trump's bombast! And Don Lemon--I do not think you spew hate on your show. Actually, I rely on CNN as one of many sources for breaking news. And I check in to hear opinions of folks on all 3 main cable programs. I used to get annoyed with CNN, but since Mr. Trump came down the escalator, I am appreciating you all more and more. Was thinking today that we will be out marching for freedom of the press soon. Anyway, hope the challenges we are facing just reinforce the importance of diligence, careful reflection, and honest reporting.
Update...decided awhile back that all the damage done by the Trump administration should not include my getting nothing done, so now catch up quickly by checking story headlines using CNN app

CNN does a good job

of reporting what is happening in our country and the world. All people perceive events, both great and small, through their own filters of experience, expectation and belief. I find CNN’s reporting more in line with my understanding of current happenings than some others. I believe they’re trying for clarity and objectivity and I commend them for that. When their boards, directors and management more accurately reflect the experience of all of us “Americans” and humans in general, including women, people of color, variations of gender expression, sexuality, “class”, and identity, they will do a great job. I can only hope to live long enough to see that day!

This app keeps me informed throughout my day

This is truly the one app I rely on for up-to-the-minute news updates. I love that I can follow live news programs everywhere I go, especially with today’s political coverage of the turmoil in the Whitehouse. My only wish is that CNN would create an additional audio-only option of its live news feature to make it easier and safer to access when driving. An audio-only app would be ideal, since I could just ask Siri to open it for me while driving, making the experience truly hands-free.
