I stopped regarding CNN as a source of credible information back in 2004
after emotionally realising that I was being lied to a scale that I hadn’t previously imagined.
With everything going on in the world,
it’s interesting to do a retrospective monthly review
of all that CNN has seen fit to dribble into my inbox
over the last month
as an ongoing indicator
of what CNN believes to be
extra-important ‘Current Events’ newsworthy stuff for my inbox
that I should be knowing about.
The following is a collated list of all the CNN BREAKING NEWS headline emails
that have appeared in my email inbox
since this year began.
They are listed here verbatim – without omission
in reverse chronology
