Is that a threat? Wolf Blitzer says 33-year-old CNN is ‘only just beginning’

Ouch! It’s hard to argue with Wolf Blitzer’s claim that CNN changed the way that people get their news. After all, CNN was the first 24-hour news network and set the template for cable news. But with Obama campaign tool Stephanie Cutter now on board as a political correspondent and the channel’s ethnic purge well underway, “we’re only just beginning” seems like more of a threat than a promise.

    There’s no doubt that CNN was the first. There is also no doubt that it is always near last.

    It’s beginning to approach the event horizon? Because time certainly stands still whenever I make the mistake of watching that channel.

    Wolf Blitzer–going the way of the Fuller Brush salesman.

    33 years ago Ted Turner launched CNN (Commie-Network-News).

  • DeadlockVictim

    CNN will probably outlive the New York Times…

    …by about two months.

    Wolf, have you ever heard of news ratings by network? You really need to do some research before you report.

    Wolf Blitzer says:

    “33 years ago today Ted Turner launched @CNN & changed the way the world gets news. And we’re only just beginning.”

    Memo to Mr. Blitzer:

    Your company’s ratings have said otherwise for more than a decade.

    Of course it never started. It never had any actual news.

    CNN is having a mid-life crisis.

    So Wolfie, what is CNN just beginning–to stink, reek, ooze, spew, rot, offend–oh wait, you’ve been doing that for 33 years now.

    Oh so ‘intelligent’ Wolf Blitzer got his arse handed to him on Celebrity Jeopardy by Conan O’Brien’s comic sidekick — Andy Richter = Best. Episode. Ever.

      that pic has been shamelessly stolen.

    CNN is 33 in caveman years.

  • pajamakat

    I can’t believe I actually used to watch CNN (Many years ago). Do they still call it “the most trusted name in news”?
