    How do you "petition" to take CNN off the air? It's a private business. It's not like the government can order it to shut down.

    Let them stay, they give good fiction, and show exactly what they are up to.

    Well we know how the Goebbels propaganda did work during WWII.
    CNN propaganda already works with millenial's population, just remember inauguration ets.
    We know what they up to - to destroy Republic and Constitution.

    Why are they petitioning the White House? Petition your cable company if you want them to take it off the air. Or better yet, cancel your cable subscription.

    I can't believe how many people continue to fall for the "petitions.whitehouse.gov"
    public relations gimmick.

    I guess PT Barnum was right after all.

    Don't they require a FCC license to operate and have to maintain certain standards/requirements?

    Even that at this point would not work, considering that it is part of almost every streaming app and huge in the international side.

    I have never watched CNN. I don't know, is it only on cable?

    But then I don't watch ABC, CBS, or the rest of the left wing propaganda outlets.

    No, because it is a cable channel.

    They do; but the Constitution doesn't allow the government to shut them down because it, or even every person in America, disagrees with the content they produce.

    Not sure if it's an "FCC License" but they are regulated by the FCC and have to follow its rules, so it seems to amount to the same thing. The systems regulating cable channels is the COALS - Cable Operations and Licensing System.

    Make cable news a Republican safe space where they don't have to see or hear anything to offend their delicate feelings!

    This is easy, don't watch it or click on their youtube videos.

    Their ratings will continue to fall until their are simply an "expense", that soros and like minded will need to decide if he keeps funding or try something else.

    But the key is - stop watching!

    Exactly, and like so many other leftist enclaves...if the petition is successful, another such entity will spring-up to occupy the "void"...I believe a better way is to just ignore/marginalize them, let natural "market forces" prevail...

    Let's not devolve into the snowflake realm of making meaningless petitions for everything we don't like. Speak with your wallet and don't watch it.
