CNN specializes in sensationalism first, journalism second.

<begin rant>
They will "rip and read" any story sent to them without any checking  
on the back story.

Their journalistic integrity, along with that of Headline News  
vanished years ago.
There is an INCREDIBLE amount of "stuff" that you hear about only on  
CNN and just as much
that you hear about from other sources that never makes it to CNN.

The only "news" organization that I put any credibility with is CNBC,  
and that is between the
hours of 0930 and 1600!

And don't get me started on "print journalism....."

At least with Freshnews.org and Google, you can get a wide spread of  
tech information.
