This Is CNN

Writing articles about a console's strengths and/or weaknesses is fine -- even expected of a games journalist. In the financial sector, upcoming electronics are of course fair game for all kinds of analytical writing. Investors and corporate bigwigs have reason to be interested in the next big devices by companies like Sony and Microsoft. Write about them! In the name of good journalism, please, please write about them. Tell the world about the strengths of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Do that. But don't go around saying that *both* are "poised to win the console war."

-GR's "Most Interesting Gamer In The World" on the topic of CNN printing nearly identical articles claiming self-contradictory predictions about PS4 and Xbox One. (PS4, Xbox One)

This is CNN, and this is not journalism. They should stick to relating information (accurate or not, who cares anymore ?), and stop pretending they know anything about video games. Because they clearly don't.

The same could be said about any major news outlet. They just fear monger the crap out of violent games. Its good for a laugh to see them fail at their job.

Or news outlets need to hire on a legitimate gaming news correspondent.

CNN, Humph you know they also MAKE up news as does Fox, right.....?

So how in the world can you think CNN will even care to bring accurate or REAL news from games and gamers...
