Daily Show mocks CNN

This clip helps illustrate why I have trouble appreciating CNN on a regular basis.
They give equal time to knowledgeable people as they do the crackpots.
America is not 50% crackpot.

Why can’t CNN do some decent fact-checking, rather than seemingly stand by complicity while guests spread misinformation?
To be fair, I like Rick Sanchez and I’ve even caught Anderson Cooper correcting a guest – but its far too uncommon.

Rod Blagojevich

Rod Blagojevich, former governor of Illinois, has a book coming out, in which he claims that finally the truth comes out regarding the scandal surrounding his apparent interesting trading barack obama’s seat.

Blagoyevich famously said:

“I’ve got this thing and it’s bleeping golden and I’m just not giving it up for bleeping nothing. I’m not going to do it and can always use it. I can parachute me in there.”

“Therefore, I can drive a hard bargain. If I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll take the Senate seat myself. It’s a bleeping valuable thing. You just don’t give it away for nothing.”
