NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – Two of the leading American cable news networks today announced bold moves to try to improve their sagging ratings.

MSNBC has promoted Rachel Maddow from news host to new anchor.  In the midst of declining ratings for MSNBC, Maddow’s popularity is at an all-time high.

CNN, meanwhile, has announced that it was demoting controversial news anchor Don Lemon who has been criticized for his clueless and misinformed reporting and opinions for the news channel.   Lemon was also the target of a recent online petition asking CNN to fire him. That petition has so far gained over 37,000 signatures.

CNN demoted Lemon from news anchor to teleprompter.

 (noun tele·prompt·er \ˈte-lə-ˌpräm(p)-tər\a machine that helps someone who is speaking to an audience or on television by showing the words that need to be said)

SAN BERNARDINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – When we think of “terrorists,” we think of men or women armed with guns indiscriminately shooting at innocent people.  But CNN and MSNBC displayed — on live television — a new kind of terrorism, shooting their cameras at the items that remained in the apartment of suspected San Bernardino shooting gunmen Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

The journalists sifted through children’s toys, household items and identification cards not just of the deceased suspects but of possible innocent individuals.

There were conflicting reports on whether or not the apartment landlord or the FBI allowed the reporters into the apartment. It is assumed that the apartment remained a crime scene at the time of the media terrorist attack.

It wasn’t clear whether the perpetrators were radicalized journalists or were simply clueless of journalistic principles and ethics..

 

 

CNN’S DON LEMON: I’M NOT A JOURNALIST, I’M A COMEDIAN

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles ) – In a no-holds-barred interview with The New York Times, controversial CNN anchor Don Lemon answered all sorts of questions — from why he thinks the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have been swallowed by a black hole, to why he smelled marijuana in the air during his coverage of the Ferguson riots.

But Lemon’s answer to one particular question sums up his entire career as a public persona:

NYT: You have a track record of upsetting people on the left. What would you say was the worst episode?

LEMON: I don’t know. No one asks Jake Tapper or Wolf Blitzer to be the spokesperson for any particular group. I’m not an advocate or an activist. I’m not a journalist. I’m a comedian.

So there you go dear readers, don’t take Lemon too seriously. Lighten up. Let him be!
