Customer Reviews


It’s refreshing to know the real patriots of our country can depend on CNN to report facts as opposed to another network that masquerades as “news” when it’s nothing but a professional far right wing bloggers dream! I guess the FCC allows propaganda and outright lies to be regurgitated from the mouths of their “entertainers” who claim they are delivering news. I remember the time when we were doing bomb drills in school and taught about the Russians propaganda machine. Unfortunately, now It’s come to America, no-thanks to our so-called patriots who are more interested in building a wall and keeping people out who don’t look like them, than the Russians undermining our democracy and possibly taking over our country with the help of Trump and his heartless, selfish and greedy cohorts. I forgot to mention their rabid protests about athletes not standing for the flag and Yet these “patriotic” Americans are trying to suppress minorities voting rights and stack the federal courts with extreme right wing judges. Thank you CNN! Keep up the excellent coverage of “REAL” news.

CNN-The Real Fair, Balanced, and Truthful News!

I love CNN because they give the true story, and they aren't afraid of trump, and his minions when they do! Fox News claims to be entertainment tv only, not a news channel! That must be true, because you can't get real news from them, they're a total republican Channel! You will never get the true story from Fox, and certainly never the entire story! CNN will give you complete, and accurate reporting, and stay impartial when they do! CNN doesn't blow smoke up your a_ _ , and tell you everything's wonderful so trump won't freak! You just get the news, and truth in their reporting, no matter if trumps going to like it, or not! Trump tries to be like a dictator, pressuring, and bullying the media to cover up the truth about him, and his administration! CNN won't buckle to trumps pressure, they just keep reporting the truth about every dirty, rotten, thing he's doing behind our backs, and to our country! That is most appreciated! The app's great too!

Unbiased Reporting but Heavy App Design

I noticed a few reviews by biased Trump supporters that do not like seeing any negative reporting on his performance. Unfortunately, news agencies report on both the good and bad. There has just been more negative than positive to report on with the current presidency. However, CNN, while slightly liberal has reported factually over the decades. Look thru their records and you’ll see plenty of negative press for Obama and Clinton and plenty of positive press for both Bushes. The reporting has always followed the actions of our president with accuracy.

As for the app design, it’s a bit heavy with oversized elements that make it hard to scan and preview without lots of oversized graphics/images. I guess the new thing is to create news that is more similar to a 3 year old’s picture book (with PowerPoint style videos - just photos with oversized captions). They have less and less word articles to READ and it’s sorely missed. They put advertising before reporting the news.
