Way back in the 1980s, Ted Turner had CNN make a video that was only to be played at the end of the world. It was a bit melancholy, to put it lightly. A bit boring, and not exactly the sendoff we might want. So leave it to John Oliver, Last Week Tonight, and Martin Sheen to give us a much, much better one.
Yesterday the world got a premature look at the CNN apocalypse video, cable news' very own requiem for Planet Earth. There's been some curiosity over how seriously employees treated the tape, but according to former employees, an ex-CEO, and a CNN archivist, they've all been trained to use the tape.
A little earlier, our brothers-in-arms over at Jalopnik published the secret video CNN intends to play when this world of ours finally ends. Have a look. It is appropriately somber, or whatever, but we at Deadspin think we can do better, because we can. Below is the hot content each Deadspin staff member would…
Thirty-four years ago, at the launch of Ted Turner's Cable News Network, the founder made a grandiose and specific promise about his newly created round-the-clock operation. "Barring satellite problems, we won't be signing off until the world ends," Turner declared. And in anticipation, he prepared a final video…

Oh, CNN. I have to admit, I love it when you talk about cars. And car hacking is always exciting to read about through mainstream media's filter of pants-soiling fear mongering. And this time, CNN's really doubling down on the stupid, with a video that shows car hacking that's only an issue if you give a hacker…
The plaid shirt-wearing Boeing 777 simulator "pilot of the people" Mitchel Casado has been fired by his employer, uFly. Casado's career was
hijacked brought into the pop culture spotlight by CNN's rental of uFly's simulator in their wall-to-wall coverage of the Malaysia Airlines 370 tragedy.
Either CNN anchor Don Lemon is one of the stupidest people on the planet or he doesn't have any scruples. Watch him speculating about the completely idiotic ideas sent by imbeciles on Twitter—asking if it could be possible that Malaysia Flight 370 was swallowed by a black hole or maybe the island from Lost took it…
CNNMoney's Peter Valdes-Dapena says he learned a lot of things on his road trip from D.C. to Boston in a Tesla Model S, including the massive amount of planning that goes into a long road trip in an electric vehicle. Oh, and he also encountered the same problems with his Model S we told you were plaguing owners — and…
In about 13 hours, journalists from CNNMoney did what a New York Times reporter couldn't (or didn't, depending on your perspective): they made the drive from D.C. to Boston in a Tesla Model S. And perhaps more importantly, they say Tesla's network of Supercharger stations along the East Coast passed the test.
As I write this, journalists from CNNMoney are attempting to do what the New York Times failed to do: drive from Washington to Boston in a Tesla Model S, making use of the company's innovative Supercharger stations along the way. Will they pull it off?
Lawyers suing Toyota claim a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) from 2002 proves the company knew there was an electronic cause for the current unintended acceleration issue. It doesn't. But that's not stopping CNN from claiming it does.
CNN.com's displaying mainstream media's usual ignorance of the automotive world today. Usually it's believing 'merican automakers aren't building the vehicles 'mericans want to buy. Today? Believing one Civic picture's as good as another.
Washington truckers and dairy farmers have come together to attempt to boost winter safety numbers by creating a cheesy concoction combining common road salt and a byproduct of the cheese production process. What's the result?
