ASHTON KUTCHER: SLIGHTLY LESS PATHETIC THAN CNN
Here’s a question you’ve probably never pondered. Who’s less relevant? Is it actor Ashton Kutcher or the Cable News Network, CNN.
Congratulations. It’s CNN. In an historic new low for any media company, CNN was actually beaten in its Twitter “Race to a Million” contest by Kutcher. That’s right, CNN got Punk’d by Ashton Kutcher.
This concludes what is arguably the worst week in the 30-year history of the cable giant. First, they received an old fashioned ass-kicking by rival cable network Fox News on tax day. CNN’s ratings were more than tripled by Fox with their coverage of “tea bag” protests. Now, a single actor, who hasn’t had a hit movie since…EVER, has just beaten CNN in website hits. Worse, CNN then had to report this defeat on their own Twitter “Breaking News” site.
CNN was probably doomed the minute Kutcher made an appearance on The Larry King Show and the cable talk icon started dogging Mr. Demi Moore. King, who is 103-years-old, idiotically told Kutcher,
“Are you kidding? Do you think you can take on an entire network? Do you know what CNN is? CNN will bury you.”
Leave it to a cranky septuagenerian, who admits he still hasn’t figured out how to send e-mail, to assess a new technology like Twitter. Maybe that explains why CNN is failing so badly.
