Great achievements in CNN chyrons, 2018 edition. A thread.

A couple of these I snapped myself. Most of them I stole from Twitter over the last year and have no idea who to credit. For that I apologize. 1/
This guy is the "Must Be Aliens" meme except for people who think their tweets about Eisenhower and the 25th amendment are real life. 2/
In this chyron, CNN cites CNN as source for news that Trump refuses "to claim any personal responsibility" for lunatic serial bomber. 3/
Serial bomber going after "Trump targets" 4/
Not only is this a painfully lazy idea but the chyron repeats the visual which is something we teach as a no-no to advertising interns and undergrads in intro to broadcast journalism. 5/

"Does not mention Russia" 7/
This CNN segment was about how Trump may be sending coded messages to QAnon by using the number "17" in his tweets because Q is the 17th letter of the alphabet.

The chyron reads "Facts First" 8/
I can't believe we have to take lectures from these people about the dangers that conspiracy theories pose to democracy 9/

"Exclusive" 10/
If they were already going to do an ever-fresh "there are typos in his tweet" dunk, why highlight words that aren't the chyron punchline? Were they highlighting each typo in order for giggles? Is that something that makes CNN viewers giggle? 11/
Trump is revoking security clearances of people who just so "happen" to criticize him, wrote CNN, which if that's the choice you're going to make then OK but you have to add the sarcastic thinking face or shrug emoji 12/12
