CNN: Keeping Them Honest?....""He who is without sin can cast the first stone?"





As you watch Anderson Copper's segment of "Keeping Them Honest", think...the man would be President of the United States.

Why do Right-wing politicians only consider Fox News and publications like the Drudge Report as viable news sources? 
As in the past, there are times when CNN criticizes Fox News and fails to look in its "closet." Apparently, CNN has also broadcast "No-Go" Zone reports.  

And CNN via Anderson Cooper "Clarifies.'  I find CNNs headline a mockery of reality. "Clarify?  A more aporpos title would have read with an admission of finger pointing without self-vetting.  

Anderson Cooper clarifies coverage of 'no-go zones'



There-in lies the reason I assert cable news has moved well away from journalism.  We find much more pure entertainment and the entertainment is often superfluous to put it simply.

Last night MSNBC's Chris Hayes opened ALL IN with a segment on deflated footballs. A newsworthy item as we approach the Super Bowl, but top story on an international news show?

As to CNN and "Keeping Them Honest?" 

"He who is without sin can cast the first stone?"
