During [[UsefulNotes/TheNewTens the 2016 U.S. presidential election]], supporters of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump accused the network of being pawns for chief opponent [[UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton Hillary Clinton]] due to the perception that it (and many other mainstream news networks) were insufficiently covering Clinton's e-mail scandal, her involvement in the 2012 Benghazi attack, and general controversies surrounding the integrity of the Democratic Party in favor of focusing largely on Trump's gaffes and controversies (of which there have been too many to count). CNN also ended up being caught in the ongoing wave of fake news and post-truth ideology, with tabloid-esque, unsupported stories that appeal to emotion gaining precedence over journalistic stories founded heavily in extensive research and fact-checking. It should be noted, however, that CNN was being referred to as the "Clinton News Network" long before a certain British reporter used that term on air.

It was being referred to as the "Clinton News Network" long before a certain British reporter used that term on air.

After Lou Dobbs left, CNN's lineup began transforming into a revolving door: Campbell Brown resigned, Rick Sanchez (who hosted ''Rick's List'', a WebTwoPointOh news program that [[PromotionToOpeningTitles used to just be an average hour]] of ''Newsroom'') was fired after controversial remarks on a radio show, ''State of the Union'' got downsized so John King could host a new weekday show, Eliot Parker left ''Parker Spitzer'' (which got downgraded to ''In the Arena'' before it got canned), Larry King retired (and was replaced by Piers Morgan), ''American Morning'' was split into ''Early Start'' and ''Starting Point'', and John King's show got cancelled in favor of Erin Burnett. The changes led to some of CNN's worst ratings in years.

Cable News Network, more commonly known as '''CNN''', is the first of the full-time American [[TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks cable news networks]]. In fact, it was one of the first cable networks, period. Founded in 1980 by Atlanta-based media mogul Ted Turner, CNN is now a subsidiary of Time Warner (the owners of the Creator/WarnerBros movie studio) and the world's second largest network (behind Creator/TheBBC).
