Nonsensical "News" Alerts & Frequently Crashes

Update: Just removed it and reinstalled. It just started crashing upon open and will no longer open. Will try a few more days.
If you do not want to hear about real news or just want to hear about obscure entertainers natural deaths as a news alert, this is for you. If you do not want to hear any real news that may involve unfavorable news to a particular political view, this is the app for you. I guess I have only held out in the hope that CNN will return to a real international news outlet as it was years ago.

Too slow/crashes

This app has never worked well. It takes forever to load the updated stories and even then it often crashes before I can finish an article. I've reinstalled it on my iPad a few times to no avail. It's disappointing the a news organization as big as CNN can put out a smooth an functioning app in today's world.

CNN app

Does CNN have an IT department that has people that know what they are doing? It had gotten better for a while, now it's back to no good. When I open the app, I can't swipe the screen. It just doesn't load. The other news apps seem to work good, but for some reason, CNN just can't their app to work. So much for a big news agency.
