#CNNFail: Because CNN is a bunch of shitheads

If you are not aware of why #CNNFail exists it might be worth a few minutes of your time to read about it. When the riots broke out in Iran over the election fraud all of our news networks at least mentioned it...except for CNN.

It's pretty fucking sad when a thread in the PA forums contains more information than a 24-hour news network.

Twitter can be good for brief personal updates, but in situations like this it becomes a huge virtual bandwagon

Jay, you ever hear about the WEF in it's prime?

Large message boards, during fairly momentous news events? If they're interested, they can be a lot more immediate and informational.

Of course, they're also less verified.. until you get others doublechecking.
