Here's a snapshot of the Gothic lens through which CNN sees the world:
Take a minute to dwell on this screenshot from CNN.com's front page. Killings, deaths. kidnappings. Scares, fears. Hopes dimming. Even Ebola makes an appearance! "You scare me at times" indeed.
Note that this isn't from CNN's crime section, or from a side page. It's from their main page, the primary news stream they present to the world.
We at Infocult commend CNN for having the courage to see the world in so terrifying a manner. We admire CNN's willingness to shun the constraints of mere journalism, in favor of embracing the full Gothic. Welcome to the dark side, CNN!
