Wear Your News


CNN is apparently in the apparel business. You can now buy CNN headlines printed on t-shirts.

My personal favorite: "What is this hairless, big-nosed beast?" The headline at the top of the page even links to the article. In this case it happens to be a story about the mythical, goat-sucking chupucabra (which I still contend might be an ex-girlfriend of mine).

CNN might put American Apparel out of business if hipsters realize the dark irony of wearing bad news. I'm waiting for a shirt that says, "24-Hour news organization distracts bored readers with cheap Chinese-made clothing".

What news would you wear?

You know what, I think I actually like CNN enough to buy one of these but it is a strange business to get into when you are not the top news organization in America.

crian - interesting. i think they'll pull a lot of people strictly interested in the shirts for the irony of bullshit, misleading headlines and nonsensical, softball stories being presented in a pop-culture manner by a self-identified "news organization"

maybe its just my west coast, LA bias, but i truly believe that CNN's marketing dept understood this angle when they pitched this project.

isn't this just CNN celebrating their own inadequacy?
