CNN: "Dems Indicted"


Headline on CNN website: “Dems Indicted; Clinton, Kerry Targeted”

Body of story: “. . . The head of the Republican Party, launching a broad indictment of the Democratic Party . . .“


The “Indictment” referred to criticism by Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman of former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, not to criminal indictments.

The AP's headline, which CNN rejected, read: "GOP Chairman to Single Out Kerry, Clinton."

This would be the closeted faggot and prominent homophobe, Ken Mehlman.

CNN is horse shit

No need to read any article. It's just a banner headline.

Much of the National Post and other Canwest rags are guilty of the same nonsense.

Newspapers and TV news are dead as news providers. The only things left are a few good magazines (Walrus, Harper's) and the internet.

Do you get your daily news from the Walrus and Harper's?

And where are the most authoritative sources for breaking news on the internet? Most of them are the websites of newspapers, wire services, and TV networks.

If you want analysis, yes, look elsewhere. But don't pretend that you can keep up with the daily news without newspapers and TV - even on the web .
