We should cheer CNN's ritual suicide

It’s reassuring to see the near universal contempt for CNN’s creepy extortion gambit, and perhaps by the time this column runs the CNN brain trust will have listened to their general counsel, who has probably aged 15 years in the last 15 days, and apologized, retracted, and fired everyone associated with this unbelievable idiocy.

Or it might double down, because CNN’s innovative ratings strategy appears to be focused entirely toward identifying and pursuing a smaller, more select audience composed solely of members of the elite Complete Idiot demographic.

Whatever. I just want CNN to collapse, and I want to laugh at its twitching corpse. And then superstars like noted legal scholar Chris Cuomo can focus on important things, like his new puppy Woofy.
