Please be more positive

CNN is so one sided. You guys rip on our president non stop. I’m open to both sides but I’m am appalled at how you are set out to destroy Trump. What this world needs today is for people to show support and love for each other. What the US needs is to be supportive of our president and let him do his work instead of NIT PICKING every single little thing.
If we all could start focusing on the good in a person things will change.
When you have a company....if all you do is beat down your employees you ruin the workplace, you get nothing from them, they are t loyal, they don’t have the urge to do well. If you praise people and see the good in them you get an employee who wants to please and try harder. It’s that easy!
Why don’t you be the bigger person in this and change to make a difference in the world!!!!!!
I watch CNN not because I like to, but to see how destructive you are being.... so I can PRAY things will change......

Biased News

CNN used to be the hallmark of up to date and comprehensive fair and unbiased news reporting. Ever since President Trump won the presidency, you have done nothing but bash him and his administration on everything he does and you have totally disrespected the office of the presidency. Your reporting is totally biased and nowhere near being balanced when it comes to your political reporting. You even take everyday mundane news stories and manage to find a way to blame the President for everything that goes wrong. I am not at all surprised that 95 per cent of these reviews are negative and your tv ratings are the lowest you have ever had. I have lost all respect for CNN and will be deleting this app. I haven't watched your news broadcasts for months. You need to take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself why you are losing so many viewers and readers. The answer should be quite obvious.

Good with a few bugs

I've found almost without fail, that a story is written and as new details emerge, they simply write a few new paragraphs at the beginning and tag on the story from yesterday to the end. So they sort of recycle written articles. But at least the info is more or less good.
And one thing that’s really annoying is the videos often never address the titles that go with them. “California Wildfires burn an area the size of NYC” You play the video, and it’s general videos about how firefighters are trying to put out the fire, but nothing about the grand scale of the fire, o map showing NYC and the fires for comparison. Just don’t put a video and only have a written story in that case. It’s kind of frustrating.
