It’s cliche and old news at this point that CNN’s recent business model has mostly been rooted in identity exploitation for narrative control against those who do not think about the world or view the world precisely as they do.
It’s now casually expected that one single thought or one single word from someone that deviates from what CNN wishes to hear results in that person being skewed as some sort of boogieman. This is not new news. CNN also seems to have a knack to skew the credibility of those who prefer open and honest objective discussions that may curate independent analysis that may give people a different opinion other than CNN’s. Joe Rogan is the most recent target as of late; however, this manipulative and calculated takedown attempt has seemed to have backfired. Joe Rogan said he does not hate CNN; however, he did confront CNN to ‘F***ing Change Your Model’.
These personal attacks at Rogan do not surprise; however, these attacks are sabotaging in a sense that the actual news station of CNN itself is swimming in an unmeasured treasure trove of their own laundry list of flaws. We’ll lead by example by not discussing them here as personal attacks are not the goal with this post. It’s a wonder how CNN feels consciously comfortable attacking other’s as they struggle in their own perils. As per customary, hypocrisy and irony seem to have met insanity and it seems the results of these stale antiquated tactics are not paying off as originally intended. CNN has had seemingly minimum accountability for their own interagency issues while throwing stones at Rogan. This is slightly reflective. These personal attacks are not only juvenile. They are malevolent. The fact that their business model thrives in character assassinations ought to be a concern for all. The fact that they are comfortable conducing this specific type of business is disturbing and reflects the lows they are willing to delve to for either money, power or control. Essentially anyone who exercises their own independent thoughts, voices or choices is a target. It’s time to see these tactics for what they are.
