Retired Intelligence Analyst, Veteran, Mother, Wife, Medical Provider

Through the years I have trusted CNN to provide accurate news for the information. When I was an intelligence analyst, I saw first hand how accurate CNN's reporting was on current events. Of course they did not have the complete full picture because it was classified information, but the unclassified information they shared with the public was spot on. I trust CNN will continue to provide accurate timely information. I hope civilians are able to recognize that what is occurring in the US is the beginning's of dictatorship. I have seen this in other countries, the silencing of News broadcasting that does not sync with the dictators agenda. Free-speech must continue, in the next four years CNN will be challenged by the American people and the world to hold people of our government accountable to their actions and words. Every piece of Intel they collect must carefully be sifted and confirmed. Please be ever so careful to not publish inaccurate stories of our government as that may result in a loss of trust. More than ever we need CNN to shed light on a false leader and crooked government that is about to take office. I am sure in the end we will rely on CNN's findings to impeach this person before his four years are completed.


The news perspective represented here is worse than the app. I once thought CNN was an authentic news source, but as time went on, it was clear that its authors and editors only catered to political fat-cats and big money. Now, a once-reliable news outlet has become the most untrusted name in news, a shadow of its previous self. You have rushed so far to the left, intent on burning down every foundation of American identity, that the people you once prided yourself on representing have decided to tear down your facade. Truth is far from you CNN. We are not a nation of mere minorities, news lobbyists, and big money interests. We are a nation of people...people who actually care about the flag. People who defend this country. People who understand there must be a balance of liberty AND justice as written about in the Federalist papers. But in your style of reporting, words like truth and justice are just silly meaningless drivel that old-fashioned people once used. Enjoy the flames and ashes that you have so effectively kindled at your own feet. Keep representing coastal American big money perspectives and your politically-slanted world-views. Continue to take up the mantle of what you deem "progressivism" and social order...keep shoveling your Marxist sludge--an ideology which has failed in history over and over--and watch as a new nation, a new media, and new generation of journalists offering truthful, balanced authorship rises up without you. Good Riddance.

UPDATED - Push notices are linked in new version & sorry u r being trolled

Thank u for fixing the push notice problem in the new version. I am sorry to see that ur reviews are being trolled by people saying ur coverage is biased. I fact check ur stories all the time using Snopes, Factcheck, & Politifact. I guess these people would say all those are biased too. CNN is a great source for news, but no one should get their news from only one source. I like the app & will continue to tell friends they should download it as one of their major news sources.

Previous review: I like the app. I like to read news in the morning, so I rarely look at the videos. I'll use my TV for that. What I HATE is when I get a breaking news push notice & I tap it, and instead of going to the story, I'm taken to the HOME page. There's no link to breaking news. It just happened and I tried to find the story and can't. If I tap a push notification, even if it's from yesterday & I just saw it in my notifications, the app should take me straight to that story. My local paper and news channel can handle that, so why can't CNN?
