Why does CNN keep adding more and more right
wing ideologues? This election proves that Americans have tired of this type of politics and journalism.
They are just sending their audience to MSNBC.
I starting to think that CNN is scared of conservatives
and is giving viewers more talk and opinion than
journalism. This shift to the right makes no sense
at all. One FNC is more than enough.
