Terrible app

I'm not writing this review just because of the content being bad, I'm also writing about the app itself being bad. I've used this app along many many other news source apps all with updates available. CNN was, every time the slowest one to deliver. I would rather hook up an old computer on dialup to look at the news than this app. I dislike the reporters as well, but I'll give it to them, they are not as bad as MSNBC. To be quite honest, they are quite annoying with their content. I mean it's okay and good to be critical with a new president, but they need to stop with some of this garbage content. It's like I'm going through the daily features on snapchat, just minor things that are expanded into a huge story. When I have decided to look more into a story, the article always is just repetitive and never really has useful information, I usually have to look up the details that I want. Many actions of the company and its reported in the last few years have been quite sketchy and they seem the be becoming more of a late night entertainment hub for people of the right wing to go to and laugh at. They may claim to be the best but they are actually the worst.

Untrustworthy News

CNN used to be a semi-reputable news organization. However, over the last several years CNN has repeatedly discredited itself by publishing stories that are factually untrue, heavily biased, and or slanderous. There are numerous instances of CNN publishing stories that were so blatantly false that they were laughable. For example, CNN was recently forced to fire 3 employees and retract a slanderous article regarding the Trump-Russia narrative. Besides publishing "fake news", CNN's journalistic integrity has been called into question. They have been forced to separate themselves from several hateful figures, including Cathy Griffin. CNN has even threatened to release the private info of an online Reddit user and then blatantly lied about the whole event. There are numerous examples of CNN's untrustworthiness and unethical practices that can be found with lite research. I hope that CNN can muster up enough integrity to reframe from deleting (censoring) my honest opinion of them. However, I don't have much faith.

Used for years but I'm done for good FAKE NEWS

I'm not conspiracy guy or blind trump only follower. Though I do see what's beyond obvious and that is CNN fake news. Everyday half the story's are just made up russia trump bashing and it's hurting our country. Nothing good has ever been done by trump apparently..nothing and Russians are in charge according to CNN. It's beyond ridiculous esp considering the Donna Brazil outright cheating to help Hillary..nothing happened for it..multiple CNN people outright admitting the Russia thing is fake news and that idiot "white lash" even saying the same thing. Nothing burger just for ratings. I will never go to the CNN site again nor look at the app or news channel. Goodbye to your fake democrat run propaganda machine. Americans aren't stupid and you will slowly see we have all left your stupid sites and until you 100 percent clean house we won't be coming back. Ignore us all..see what happens. Your network is a joke! Not fooling anyone
