I am writing to you from Australia .
I have been a viewer of CNN for a while & have seen that you have made some changes to what we in Australia view , as The Situation Room is a show where I found very informative when I awoke to follow the news as it was shown here in the morning our time . The news we are shown is not that informative & we seem to have sport too much of it ! Why ?? Are we not shown more USA programs especially at this moment of the USA elections & also New Start ? Your CNN app also has taken away these shows r me to view why ? So can you ps make us happy viewers in Australia we seem to have too much Asian news form CNN ps allow us here to view some more interesting programs .


I'm incredibly disappointed with CNN. It had a strong reputation for its coverage. That's not the case any longer. Everything Left-wing is presented as fact without data, scrutiny or a range of viewpoints. I'm a social scientist so I need to know what's happening - I now have to scour small news outlets to find out what's occurring. Social issues and political coverage are especially skewed to the Left, omitting facts and making uncontested claims without scrutiny. A shameful misuse of a strong reputation and enormous influence.

A bit of a slug

A bit sluggish. The old/previous news items don't refresh until a few seconds after launch. Old features at bottom of page don't ever go away.
