I never, ever watch CNN, but decided to take a peak at the state of the debased American corporate news by watching their "reportage" on the Dorner case.

OMFG!  What a total disgrace!  In the segment I watched they were engaging in the type of biased, uninformed, and manipulative commentary you would expect in East Germany fifty year ago.

They said something (with sadistic glee) about Dorner being "hunted down like an animal!"  Can't they just report the news?  Wow!

And what's with their constant haranguing about the reason they don't have live helicopter feed because Dorner could shoot them!  My God, it is really, really bad.  I won't even waste my time commenting on all the reasons they shame the once-venerable profession of journalism.

There is one good thing, though.  Today, February 12th, 2013, the corporate news conglomerate died!  From now on, any discernible and perceptive citizen will know they are an odious propaganda tool for their corporate masters.

RIP, CNN, and the rest of the U.S. corporate media.  And good riddance.

It is now our duty, as citizens to unplug from the poisonous mental venom these organization peddle.  Support non-corporate, individual, non-profit news sources.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
