Funny how all the repub's hate the app

First off the app i think is great. Only complaint is occasionally paragraphs r repeated in articles, and sometimes incomplete sentences but i still understand the point and ik nothing is perfect. Overall i think its impressive and great. As the title says tho i find it funny how all of a sudden all the conservatives think CNN is biased. Yet i bet all of them love fox news and believe its the most unbiased/accurate news agency there is 😂😂😂. And I've always been neutral btwn the 2 parties but honestly the most reasonable answers to a lot of the problems r what the liberals r going for. And the conservatives have some good ideas too. But i think news agencies r starting to realize the obvious solutions to problems to report on and yea it might happen to be a liberal belief but their just trying to make everyone realize that its not about what party ur for as it is who will pick the right solutions to help our countries problems. People need to realize that if we don't make changes soon, we r gonna self destruct this country

App Review

Who do you have for customers. You must have cave people for customers. I don't usually write reviews, nor do I usually read reviews; but this time I was so amazed I read 100 reviews & I couldn't believe how many totally out of it customers you had. Previously there were the complaints about the lead in voice that was on the App & now there's the complaints about everything on the App. These people want a newspaper, not an App, they should go back to their caves. & read a newspaper not an up to today's news App. This is 2014, not 1914. Get with the program & get your head out of the sand. Excellent App, do not go backwards; keep up the good work. No need to go backward. Thank you for an excellent App.

If I wanted lies I would read Fox News

I've used this app daily for close to two years. Up until the last 3 months I have enjoyed and appreciated the information and content of the articles and videos. But today with a sad and disappointed heart I am deleting this app. Why? I'm sick of reading about how white people are the cause of all poverty, crime, hated and racism. I believe we as a country have racial issues that we must come together to solve. The tone of the articles on this cnn app of late have been divisive, an accusatory propaganda that Intentionally distorts facts so as to push a racist agenda. If I desired to fill my head full of lies I would simply open the Fox News app. I am saddened that CNN has decided to employ the lowest preforming 6th grade English students to write the articles for this app. Thank god for spell check or we would not be able to read how evil with people are every day. Good bye CNN app. Now we're do I go for news?
