CNN Comes Out as Infotainment Outlet: “We Never Said We Were an ‘Information’ Source”

Classic middle class liberal establishment news network CNN has recently tried to defend its record in Beltway apologetics, anonymous-source-mongering, and ceaseless drum-banging.

Yes! You guessed it!

Have a look at our interview.

Wally: So, do you agree with the rumors you are a fake news outlet?

Phil McCracken: No. This is what people don’t understand. We’re purely an infotainment outlet.

Wally: OK. So you still provide real and true information, but in an entertaining way?… It’s hard to know which of these two things is less non-unconvincing.

Phil McCracken: No, you idiot! I said infotainment.

Wally: You got the power cut to your head son!

Wally: OK, so you’re definitely, definitely not fake news then. Good to hear!

Phil McCracken: No, you idiot! … Stop triggering me, you’re confusing me.

Wait what the f… Ah! Ya see?! Ha! Ha! Ha! Erm… Funny props at random for the… the l-l-laughs, ya see. Erm. Anyhoo!

Wally: So, we got the entertainment bit. … Ish. So, entertainment in the guise of information.

Phil McCracken: Well… uh, yeah. Duh!

Wally: “In the guise of information.” So you haven’t actually got any information at all? Does that make you fake news by any chance.

Phil McCracken: OK, drop the mic!

Wally: Enjoy your Plan B, brother.

Phil McCracken: I ain’t got one, boy! These are the only people that will hire me.

Wally: Always Fox News though, right?

Phil McCracken: JUST YOU WAIT TIL I…
