|Slogan||"The Most Trusted Name in News"|
CNN or Cable News Network, is an English speaking news network. It was the first 24 hour news coverage. It is now second only to Britain's BBC News in the number of employed news journalists and worldwide news bureaus. In America it is seen as more neutral than the evil pushing Faux News or the liberal MSNBC. It is often seen as the middle ground and it gives both 'perspectives' a chance. It has been accused of a liberal bias, mainly because it has given conservatism and liberalism a chance and in the end liberalism won on the unbiased news network, but more right-wing favoritisms have been on there, though.
The Cable News Network was launched at 5:00 p.m. EST on Sunday June 1, 1980. After an introduction by Ted Turner. Since then CNN has greatly expanded and now ranks 2nd worldwide which Fox News hates. Only the vastly older BBC ranks higher than CNN worldwide. Also they were the first news network to report the 9/11 attacks.
Today CNN remains one of the world's most popular stations. American Conservatives have claimed that they have an anti-American bias (interestingly, CNN is American). This is because they portray everyone around the world, even neocons, as ultimately human. Conservatives continue to claim that Muslims are not people but CNN has refused to bow to them.
