Fox too right extreme. MSMBC leans left. CNN is the most balanced. I found myself infuriated with CNN and ALL NEWS during election. They spent too much time on emails. It caused this country a stable and legitimate leader who could have made History for every little girl and woman in America. Now that a lunatic has taken office and has enraged the country with protests, rallies and Marches EVERYDAY non stop since he won around the world and growing. They are forced to be balanced since they helped mess up this election along with the rest of the media and what did they get for it? Accused of being Fake news by a pathological liar himself. We considered the source and it brought even more credibility to CNN. We all know CNN is legitimate and respected around the globe. The person named President is a known liar and will soon be impeached. It's not if, it's when. So they are obviously reporting ACTUAL news by and for the people. Anyone else that doesn't see this should do themselves a favor and turn off Fox, stop reading Breitbart, or listening to Hannity. Since they are the only news not targeted by a bully trying to oppress our First Amendment. Your 4 stars went to a 5 the moment you were called "fake" by the ACTUAL fake.

3.5=mostly good but needs improvement

I have been reading CNN use on my phone for the past five or six years. I really enjoyed it the first one through four years and felt that I was getting a fairly comprehensive and objective view of the world. However as the last presidential campaign began, I started to notice articles with a very definite favorable slant towards Clinton and what I would term as prejudicial articles against Mr. Trump. Newspapers all over this country have for many years have had editorial boards offer an opinion on a candidate that they think would make a good president or against a candidate they think would not make a good president; and that is their right and prerogative. But when it comes to reporting news, the news needs to be objective, include all the facts, and leave a writers emotion and subjectivity out of the article. I didn't feel that CNN was doing a good job of that over the past two years. However I do appreciate how fast you get the news out to all of us! CNN is my only news station that I can rely on day in and day out – – I love this app!

Good App but Biased New based on Fiction

The app reflects the TV show. Great technology and professionally done. But it's not really a News Station or App any more. It's a reality soap opera of negative anchorman and news.
"Cable Negative Network". I am an ex/patriot living and working in Asia and pay a Premium Satellite Service for CNN but I'm going to save the Monthly fee. It's a long way since the days of Larry King. I'm in the middle but still American. Your network says the Presidential administration was Helped by Russia, but being so negative about everything is just what Russia wants our people to think - America Imploded.

We want to see real news coverage not just Trump bashing by Angry Men and Women so unrepresentative of the main stream audience. 4 stars for the app minus 2 for the content. The Fox App is 2 for the app + 2 for reporting non-fiction which equal 4. So Fox is your competition and not 40% of Americans. The News should be your "star", not a handful of strange people's opinions. Your experts blew the presidential election so badly. Most people that make such bad calculations get fired, I was there for day 1 of CNN and it's now evolved into opinions and not information.
