Why She Sucks
- Her deconstruction of original and/or older content from Boomerang.
- Many acquired series, most notably the Pokemon anime, ran on Cartoon Network for a decade-and-a-half. They also switched to another channel and/or stopped airing.
- She made reboots of older shows (mostly without the original creator's permission) that received poor reviews from fans of the originals.
- Denied many pitched shows that received widespread acclaim in favor of shows that appeal to younger audiences.
- She relies more on the streaming content instead of the actual Cartoon Network channel itself.
