Is CNN.com Taking Interactivity Too Far?


This new feature seems a little reckless to me. Is this what conventional media sites have to do to outdo the youtubes?

Thank god my kids were only kidnapped and brainwashed to sass back.

I can't quite get the interactivity feature enabled. I'll just leave them on sass until I can ctrl+alt+del their hides.

btw: "blue-state republicans face red hurdles" sounds so like Foley-esque soft porn.

The kids are calling it 'red hurdles' these days, eh?

I thought all CNN stories had that interactive brainwashing feature...

Whatever, Disney has been doing that for over fifty years.

Back when the missing kid thing went big, there was an ad before a movie with a still photo of a local missing kid (Kevin Collins was his name) and the big headline This Child Could Be Yours!

I turned to the person next to me and said, "You know, I am in the market for a fresh-faced white kid; I don't want to tip my hand, and I'm definitely price-sensitive, but I am willing to talk as long as this doesn't turn into a bidding war."

Turns out I misunderstood the point.

What Edith's friend said.

I can decide if I like this one better than the "Boy, 3, on fire runs into tree crying for mom" video. You decide!
