NEW YORK — Facing criticism of recent news coverage, CNN has decided to employ the help of New York-based shock jocks Opie and Anthony to add new voices to the network. It’s a surprising move, considering the basis of much of the criticism lies in network anchors and correspondents injecting their own opinions.

The duo are known for already tackling both political and social issues, as Anthony Cumia has become a voice on the air and Twitter for right-leaning causes. The two have a history of courting controversy, firings and, occasionally, their own news coverage over their stunts on the radio. There is currently no word on whether third mic Jim Norton, a co-conspirator in the show’s hijinks, will be a part of the new CNN program.

Anthony's friends at Fox News will not be happy, nor will the NRA, as I'm told CNN requires all it's employees to turn over their guns as a condition of employment.

The best quote of the article is this one:

“This is the beginning of the end for the 24-hour news network,” said Paul H., a popular commenter on the CNN website. “I really can’t stand with a company that would let those goons on the air in such a serioussetting.”

Anyone can write for Weekly World News now? That could be fun.
K: We're gonna check the hot sheets.
J: THESE are the hot sheets?
K: Best investigative reporting on the planet. But go ahead, read the New York Times if you want. They get lucky sometimes.

Is this for real, and if so, when is it starting?

It's on right now. They're doing a candid camera segment called "Abortions soup", where they mash abortions into soup and make people at the supermarket taste it. The reactions are hilarious.

I had to set the VCR to record the show, but I'll watch it when I get home.

D0n't bother, the second episode was a total letdown. All they did was feed various baby animals to a snapping turtle the whole show. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
