CNN really must want to see how close to zero they can get their ratings.
The 24-hour news channel, who recently held town halls with long-shot candidates Bill de Blasio and Steve Bulluock, has announced another just awful programming move. CNN will hold a climate crisis town hall with 10 Democratic candidates on Sept. 4.
The town halls are set to begin at 5 p.m. with each one going for 40 minutes. The just awful program is currently scheduled to last seven hours.

I get that climate change is likely something that we need to address but it’s not a big enough issue to warrant a major news organization to devote such a massive block of time.
What are these people thinking?
