Twitter started buzzing just before the President spoke at tonight's White House Correspondents Dinner, claiming that CNN was telling their viewers who wanted the news, particularly about the rioting in Baltimore, that they could totally get that news. From, you know, Twitter. CNN Political Commentator Errol Louis addresses the elephant on the computer screen.
"This is always about choices, right? I mean you know, you have to make a decision, what are you gonna do with this two hours of time. And we, you know, CNN made it's decisions, and is sticking to it's plan and so forth," says Louis. He then notes you can find out on Twitter what the Baltimore police are saying, or search for an online feed. "You can find out what you want to find out," he says. "The most powerful man in the world is going to tell some jokes."
You can find out what's going on in the news news, just not from CNN, he suggests. He then adds one of the greatest things ever said on CNN:
"We'll catch up."
He wraps up by telling all you impatient news watchers that by this time tomorrow you can find out about all of this rioting and other whatever.
CNN took several hard shots during the Correspondents' Dinner, including from the President. It seems they're a little behind the other networks when it comes to covering the news. But hey, that's OK man. They'll catch up.
