More about commercial than news

I really don't think that CNN editors watch their news videos on CNN app. Otherwise they would be annoyed as everyone else with those commercial videos we have to watch over and over again before EVERY video news, and they would probably change that immediately. Most people understand and would be ok with watching those commercials once, but before EVRY video news-give me a break.... Instead of watching every news, I watch just the most important one and I'm done with CNN app. Apparently CNN doesn't read users review, and it appears that they are here for their marketing money making purpose rather than users. I'm not sure who's going to watch those videos if people one by one switch to a different news sources. Come on give us a break, wouldn't it be enough to watch one video before we start watching a news clips? Why do I have to watch a Valvoline commercial (in Spanish, which I don't understand anyway) several times within 5 min of watching some news clips. Ridicules, CNN App is going bye bye. I'm done with this Brainwashing News......


How sad it is that CNN management has put ratings over bringing real news that matters. Case in point all the attention to Trump's dirty politics about Bill Clinton and Hillary's attempts to cover up his affairs. American presidents throughout our history have had affairs, but what they do on the bedroom does not have the importance of what they do in the Oval Office! Trump is leading America towards fascism. There have been many articles explaining this but no word about it on CNN! Junk news to raise the ratings instead of the knowledge that Americans need to make the right decisions at the general election! Shame on CNN for stomping on the graves of great journalists like Cronkite and others who sought to bring the real truth to television news. Disgusting and horrific! Just read the Washington Post, the New York Times, and other responsible news organizations to see just how horrible CNN really is. It's a news outlet for the masses... the ignorant masses that feed on the crap CNN provides which puts our democracy in jeopardy, all for the sake of ratings!

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.
