People loved CNN’s takedown of Kirstie Alley after she trolled their Covid coverage
It’s not long ago – okay then, it’s 30 years – that Kirstie Alley was making us laugh on Cheers. These days she’s better known for other things, among them her unwavering support for Donald Trump.
Which means her criticism of CNN and its coverage of Covid-19 might not entirely come as a surprise to you.
Here’s what the actress had to say, and we only mention it because CNN’s response was simply perfect.
“I now Know why my personal friends who walk around in SHEER TERROR of contracting Covid are simply CNN viewers!
“I decided to watch CNN myself to get a their viewpoint and oh my God DID I EVER!!!! IF YOU TOO WANT TO LIVE IN TERROR WATCH CNN!! FEAR OF DYING IS THEIR MANTRA! OMG!”
@CNN you need to give the kid running your Twitter accounts a RAISE!

And this made it even better.
How many TV shows have you starred in, CNN comms twitter person? How many people would ask for your autograph or a picture with you if they knew who you were? How many books have you published?
