It’s easy to understand now why CNN decided it could afford to cut severed head aficionado Kathy Griffin loose from its New Year’s Eve extravaganza. There’s a new and way better holiday just around the corner, and a 10-second ball drop just won’t cut it.
Time to break out the infamous CNN countdown clock.
Sen. Rubio quite sarcastic ahead of Comey's testimony before Senate Intel: "There isn’t a countdown clock on cable or anything, right?"

When the Corrupt News Network has a countdown clock to Comey testimony you can be assured there's a Trump bashing session waiting to happen. pic.twitter.com/RoGb6rB22Z

Traced back where CNN started their Comey countdown clock this morning– 47:58:40 seems a little … excessive pic.twitter.com/yA0JQ6RWSw

CNN's Comey Countdown Clock Ticks Down the Seconds to Testimony Time https://t.co/brLFwR6L5v

Possibly excessive: CNN running a countdown clock to Comey's congressional testimony. Only 45 hours to go!
— Chris Knap (@cknap311) June 6, 2017
Yes, that’s 45 hours until Comey’s testimony — still plenty of time to mail viewing party invitations to all the members of the pussy hat sewing circle and order a snack tray.
CNN currently have a countdown clock showing that it's 43 hour and 8 mins until Comey testifies. Overegging it possibly.

@CNN The countdown clock to Comey testifying 42 hours ??? Is that necessary?
— laiju (@lnsjames) June 6, 2017
CNN countdown clock says we're 42 hours away from Comey's testimony. Seriously? They need to take up screen space with that?

Why, for the love of all that is holy, does CNN have a countdown clock to the Comey testimony? Wait. Never mind. Forget I asked that.

Safe to say CNN is biased given there's a countdown to Comey clock 3 days in advance

CNN has a countdown clock in the corner of the screen counting down to when Comey testifies. Throw a tent over it and call it a circus.

They started their fucking countdown clock over 3 days ago!
— Jamie Sherman (@mangopolitics22) June 7, 2017
It's that seconds part of the countdown that gets me. It's kind of game show. I feel like I need to guess the price of something.

Oh but the #CNN countdown clock is building the suspense…not!

You know it's a big deal when the countdown clock is set at more than 24 hours. pic.twitter.com/rmxvO8NCBG

CNN's Countdown to Comey clock is a pathetic way to dramatize the news. Take the stupid thing down.

CNN has a countdown clock for the Comey hearing because journalism is fucking dead.
— eric (@eriContrarian) June 6, 2017
If your news source has a countdown clock, you need a new source for news. Looking at you @CNN
