You would think that “The Worldwide Leader in News” have more prominent and important news to report on that Miley Cyrus sticking her tongue out in what was deemed as a risqué performance in last night’s VMAs. With political turmoil and scandals and millions starving around the world, what made the Managing Editor of CNN.com, Meredith Artley come out publicly to tell the world why this particular story stole the limelight. The answer people is simple (and rather genius!)… it’s so people like you and I will click on their website, they therefore get lots of traffic and in return will bring in more revenue. Boom!
“Side note: Advertisers, along with you idiots, love videos. Another side note: The Miley Cyrus story was in the same top spot we used for our 9/11 coverage.” Meredith Artley
Some of you probably feel like CNN has done you a disservice (together with the people of Syria!), but you know what, this tactical move has brought them more traffic and interest than they can ever dream of.
So, if they can do it, we would like to also jump on the Miley band wagon and if you are reading this then “thanks for dropping by” and please like this article below.
We have re-posted the video in case you missed it.
Cheeky we know but so was Miley’s dance moves!
