CNN and the 2014 Winter Olympics
I don’t listen to CNN very often, and when I do I am always dismayed. Their reports of the opening of the Olympic games in Sochi was truly saddening. I hope no one in Russia or elsewhere in the world was taking the CNN reports to heart. Everything in it was designed to be a subtle insult to Russia, from the disgusted tone of voice describing the accommodations, to the ‘I-told-you-so’ attitude in their report about no Americans being there other than immediate family and friends of the athletes who had to be there. I have to ask, “Do you really believe you appeal to anyone who thinks for themselves, anyone with an education, or who cares about other people across the world?” If you represent anyone at all, it would have to be the lowest common denominator in society. I’m sorry CNN, but you don’t represent me or my views – or the views of anyone I know – at all. You are an embarrassment to us all.
