New Remy Music Video Skewers CNN

The triviality of cable news is the latest target of Arlington’s foremost libertarian satirical rapper, Remy Munasifi.

Remy, together with his colleagues at Reason TV, has released a new music video entitled “This is CNN.” The auteur of the timeless “Arlington Rap” skewers CNN in the video, making the point that in the era of clickbait and social media navel-gazing, news of actual international consequence is taking a backseat to petty controversies and zero-calorie election tidbits.

While CNN is singled out in the video, above, fellow cable nets MSNBC and Fox News are also implicated by unspoken association.

“Cover the news, shake up the ranks,” Remy implores. “Rome is engulfed and we’re sitting here fiddling.”
