CNN is creating an app being touted to serve “CNN superfans” filled with lots of CNN’s fake news content.

In what seems to be an effort to spread more fake news than ever before, Chief digital officer Andrew Morse told the "Strictly Business" podcast at Variety there would be no “political slant” to CNN Plus content.  Andrew Wallenstein tried to define the personality of the new venture.

WALLENSTEIN: Is it more irreverent? Is it less traditional? Is it more ideological, I have to ask? Is it going to be something that, you guys are known as the liberal network, and if you really want to go "deep lib," here's CNN Plus?

MORSE: I don't think anyone who's looking for "deep lib" would seek out CNN. It's just not what we do. But no, it’s not going to be ideological. We’re just not in that game. We’re not an opinion network, we’re a news network.”

If you want to feel like your numbly waiting at an airport gate staring blankly at leftist images foisted upon you from the screen, but don’t want the hassle of a TSA pat down. Now there’s an app for that.
