John Hinderaker's encounter with CNN's outrageous propoganda reminds me why I don't watch CNN.
A few weeks ago, I was having dinner in a restaurant that had CNN playing over the bar. They began a story entitled "Critics Say McCain Too Much Like Bush."
I pondered the newsworthiness of reporting this unexceptional fact, but then realized that the purpose of the story wasn't to inform, but to influence those Democratic voters who might be considering voting for McCain. A reminder that someone, somewhere, is reminded of the hated Shrubby McChimpHitler might secure them back to a vote in the liberal column.
What amazed me the most, though, is that this fluffy piece lasted at least five minutes. Of such things does the decline of a great cable company consist.
