CNN Mocks Astrologer
I’ve been getting the vibe over the past few months that CNN isn’t very keen on astrology. It has almost become a regular occurrence at this point that every few months there will be some sort of snarky headline about astrology on the front page of their website. I guess that I’m not really particularly shocked at this point, but some of the digs that they make are still kind of lame.
Case in point, observe the latest headline on their front page in reference to the earthquake that occurred today in California:
“Astrologer couldn’t predict quake”
The link leads you to a video of some hapless Sun-sign astrologer known as Cosmos Gal who was apparently filming a segment right when the earthquake hit today: http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-53202
Cosmos Gal apparently has a page on YouTube where she posts these quasi-Sun-sign clips, and it looks like the clip on CNN originally came from her Youtube page. For some reason she kind of set herself up by posting the clips on her YouTube page today, both the unedited one with a green screen as shown on CNN, and the longer semi-edited one:
Now, I’m not really saying that I’m a big fan of the more generalized popular forms of astrology that are out there, and I can appreciate the weak attempt at humor or irony on CNN’s part, but still…
Cheap shot CNN. Cheap shot…
