If we’re going down this road....

Any restaurant that claims to have “the best _____ in town” is now committing fraud. .


It's not the same, since CNN is making a claim about other people actively trusting them. Calling your movie "an exciting thriller that you will love" is different to saying "this was the most popular movie this year", the latter needs some backing up to not be false advertising. If you bought a pill called "the most trusted pill for lowering blood pressure" and you found out later that practically noone used it anymore and noone trusted it, that would be a scam.


Is that how it works in Russia, comrade?


He wouldn't know, he's not actually a Russian either.

So are the restaurants. This is a stupid criterion and this is a stupid topic.


Is there a restaurant claiming they are the best reviewed or most trusted restaurant in the US? If so then yes, that claim shouldn't be allowed unless they can back it up. If they are claiming they have the best reviews and you go and check and they're all 1s, that's false advertising and fraud.

Why is it always the people who know the least about the law clamoring about s*** like this? This is literally a repeat of the "People should sue ABC for their stock losses!" when there is no claim that would survive a motion to dismiss.

How is it a "disaster" when most people agree that it is false advertising to keep claiming they are the "most trusted" name in news? Would you claim they are the "most trusted name in news"?

CNN: The most trusted name in fake news.


But... they aren't Fox News or the Donnie administration, so both of these would be, as you say... flagrant false advertising and misinformation.

CNN can't be trusted to even read a date right and check it before they release a report.
Without freedom of speech how would we know what idiots some people truly are?

They've got at least that in common with Donald Trump then. Or did you forget the whole Sweden debacle?

A fraud calling under things a fraud is pretty hypocritical

CNN is more trusthworthy than

Infowars- which trump loves and watches
Fox news
Breibart
The donald reddit

While CNN have biases, they don't make up fake news as often as those mentioned.
