Charles Barkley goes on an anti-CNN rant during TNT’s NBA coverage

“To be honest with you, CNN has done an awful job this election. An awful job,” Barkley said when prompted to discuss his sibling network’s Republican debate on Tuesday.

And it’s sad and frustrating that our company has sold their soul for ratings.”
