Editors’ Notes

We’re diehard fans of 24-hour news channels, and CNNGo combines the depth of CNN’s reporting and original programming with the instant gratification we crave. A constantly updated package of on-demand top stories gives us the immediate news fix we need, while cable subscribers can stream CNN and HLN live right on Apple TV. We can neither confirm nor deny reports that we say “THIS…is CNN!” every time we fire up the app.

An review of the actual app itself

I enjoy having this app available whether I want to sit down and browse the news or quickly find an update regarding breaking news. News stories are arranged in a format that’s easy to navigate and load quickly enough once selected. One of my favorite features includes the opportunity to view live TV during important political (mostly election) events and occasionally serious situations (such as the Baltimore riots). I don’t have a cable or satellite subscription so I’m normally unable to watch CNN at all, therefore I appreciate the occasional 'free’ block of viewing time, which usually lasts hours, generously covering the entire event. In addition to that, this app permits non-cable/satellite subscribers to view ten minutes a day of live-streaming CNN. 10 minutes is not very much but if you’re bored, it’s something. My complaint with it is that it expires too easily. If you leave the app for a minute, it still counts down. You have to exit the live TV feature AND close the app to stop the countdown of your 10 minutes. The 10 minutes also includes commercials, so you rarely get much news content. My only other complaint is that the app freezes occasionally. I have to close it and return to it. Aside from those things, it’s a good news app. Yes, politically, it does lean towards the left a bit. Probably something one should know (if they care) before downloading the app.

Umm.... bias much? 🤔

I got the CNN app a few years ago. I’ve really appreciated getting news notifications and it has helped me stay more informed on what’s going on in the world. But as the years have gone by I’ve noticed a trend. I am an advocate of truth and morals. I will not shun or discredit news that seems to go against my opinion because that would foster a political ignorance. However, it seems pretty clear that CNN likes to pick and choose their articles solely based on the views that they have and are trying to promote. Their news titles have become more and more like click bait and they write the news through the lens of opinion and agenda. I respect news sources that strive to be unbiased and I do not feel this is the standard CNN is trying to achieve. If I read news stories that were perfectly skewed to meet my opinion I would still be livid. The point of being informed by news is not to reenforce a sense of pride. It is to increase understanding of truth. But CNN, like so many other news nowadays, seems to push for a cookie cutter position and not the spreading of unbiased facts. I hope to see improvement because I understand how much power they hold in the media. It takes a lot of wisdom and humility to remain unbiased when you hold a position of such power, but I hope that someday I’ll see that side of them more.
