CNN is an Embarrassment

This is fairly self-explanatory.


The other cable news networks didn’t necessarily do a much better job, but CNN spent an overwhelming amount of time covering the president shaking hands with Raul Castro.

I suppose that was the only topic they could safely view through a prism of “both sides” and debate it ad nauseam.

    “Nothing important. The biggest complaint is that the president shook hands with Raúl Castro.”

    “Excellent! Run with it!”
