How many TVs are there that actually tune into CNN by choice :p

Edit: Darcy has one of them punchable faces doesn't he. The smarm just comes wafting off the screen.

I had to Google this to find out what exactly they're talking about here:

Why not just show CNN instead, or maybe, pare down operations a bit and wait for the inevitable turnaround....likely the fucking explosive growth in air travel...once this COVID thing is wrapped.

Had no idea CNN Airport Network was even a thing. Is it just like ... 3 accountants in an office that process the payments to airports to have them show the regular CNN broadcasts lol? Do they try to combine news from different travel destinations for both sets of citizens?

Seems like a huge waste of money.

CNN can probably pare way down, the Dems won't have much work for them until the midterms.

The answer is in the wikipedia you linked to:
Due to the network's prominence in public waiting areas, the network has stricter content standards than the regular CNN; for instance, stories involving commercial aviation incidents and crashes do not appear on the network, and are overlaid with automated weather conditions. Stories involving sexual content and graphic violence are similarly overlaid. The network's digital on-screen graphics are designed larger than industry standards, to allow readability of fonts at a distance.[7]

I legitimately thought the thread title was a clever burn, calling CNN the "airport network" since that's the only place most of us are forced to watch it. Who knew they had a separate division or channel for this purpose?
