  1. This is a sad move for CNN. Andrew Demaria exemplifies precisely the cheap, tacky, clickbait journalism that the network ought to be avoiding like the plague. By publicly placing him in a position of influence, they’re sending a message that quality writing and solid research are matters of no interest to them.
