Gruber F. Johnson:
It looks like utter shit. Why should this be their "regular" website?

Plain text is good enough for grubs, it's good enough for anyone.

Do you think this site would look like this if he didn't like to jerk off to markdown every few months?

You really consider CNN's "news" coverage to be that high value? Why not just set it to Google News?

Credit where credit's due, this is great. If it weren't CNN (or Fox, or whatever), it'd be even better.

Gruber the Booger:
CNN discovered what an RSS feed looks like.

This is revolutionary and magical.

How dare you question your betters?:
Get the fuck out. A clean page of headlines, loads in milliseconds, who gives a shit that it’s not pretty and CNN hurts Trumpy feefees.

No, the problem is simply that CNN sucks your mother's ballsack. Their coverage of everything is total dog shit.

Grubology 101:
What everybody is missing is that CNN is simply trying to emulate The Drudge Report and his success. Like Gruber points out, adding some photos will make it EXACTLY like Drudge.
