Crisis News Network.

The widely known and watched news station on TV, CNN, which ACTUALLY stands for "Cable News Network", will take almost any subject, and will over-exaggerate it to death.

Most of the time, running news stories for weeks at a time.

CNN will also take any subject, and try and create news off things that are connected TO the subject, but talk about things that have no relation to the point
"Breaking news, catasrophe in downtown Toronto, a Go-Train has stopped 50 meters from the station. Police don't know what caused the incident, but noone was believed to be hurt. Foul play has been ruled out."

"Now Tom, the Go-Train rides on a 5 inch thick electrically charged super-conducting alloy correct?"

"Yes that is correct Dave"

"Can you tell us the chemical composition of that metal over the next 20 minutes?"

"Coming up next on CNN, the pope coughs, fear sweeps over the nation."

Stands for Cable News Network but has turned into something of a joke. They are frequently mocked on the Daily Show and Colbert Report, sometimes by Fox news. Mocked by President Obama during the correspondents dinner. They are mocked because they cover stories for weeks without any new evidence to keep people interested.
Barack Obama during Correspondents Dinner- "The lengths we have to go to to get CNN coverage these days, I think they're still searching for their table."
