CNN really thinks their apples and bananas analogy of “fake news” is witty. Though had these bananas been misplaced at a Black Lives Matter rally, the banana analogy would’ve gone from “witty” to CNN’s building being set aflame.
If only CNN was concerned about the fake news on CNN (see WATCH: Patriot Troll Master Yells ‘CNN is Fake News!’ LIVE on CNN and Polish President Wrecks ‘Fake News’ CNN with a Single Tweet). But they do love their fruit. We’re waiting to hear how Anderson Cooper is using these bananas post video shoot. Don’t send videos of that. Don’t.

Whoever pitched this video needs to be given a urine test. Because there’s a good chance they were smoking bananas during the creative meeting on April 20th.
CNN CREATIVE DIRECTOR: We need a new commercial to point out how not fake news we are.
OTTO: What if you took a giant pile of bananas, only you put apple in the middle?
CNN CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Why do you smell like a 311 concert?
Thankfully, the internet didn’t have a case of the Mondays. Let the mockery commence!
I pee’d. https://t.co/lZPZGAgrhX

Giant piles of bananas are not a thing. Nobody says "looking for an apple in banana stack." This metaphor plane is off the rails at sea. https://t.co/OX4wIrT635

#CNN would do a better job finding facts if they actually hired chimps to dig through piles of bananas
Then had them pound on MacBooks randomly https://t.co/kCJXgLLeEY

CNN. America’s most trusted name in potassium.
We should be happy all we got was a pile of bananas. They could have worked blue. Put a condom on one. Rubbed it with vaseline. And demonstrated what the network has done to journalistic standards. James Earl Jones could still narrate, but as Darth Vader. Breathing heavily.
