Surely you people cannot still believe that CNN is in any way a legitimate Cable "News" Channel?!

I think that the big name/large corporation media orgs have been using Twitter as their social media of choice for awhile, so it makes sense that fear of change would strike at least a few of them.
Actually, I think even the smaller/independent/fringe media uses Twitter, unless their offerings violate Twitter's TOS of course.

I think they're overthinking it though.

If Musk changes Twitter too much, it'll die as a social media platform, so he won't because in the end he's all about the money.

If we're judging them by their pundits' outbursts? I believe CNN is no less legit news than FOX.

I find it oddly amusing that there are conservatives on here who get so wound up about anyone on CNN saying something they don't agree with when they back Fox and OAN who spout disagreeable tripe 24/7.

They're the thinnest skinned people on the planet.

You obviously don't watch very much Fox News!

Yes, Fox News is so well trusted that even Sky doesn't broadcast the channel in the UK.
It was dropped about a decade ago due to low ratings and the UK having rules about news channels.

The analyst may be right. The dude is a shut-posting troll.

Nobody cares what the UK thinks. Not in the “Colonies” at least.

Personally, I don't care what some Nigerian youtube channel claims about anything.
