  1. If I had the time and the energy, I’m sure I could scour CNN and put together the same kind of montage to support the president.

  2. Probably, but it would take longer 🙂

    I’ve watch both stations for a while. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with editorial pieces or opinion shows. It’s when you pass them off as news that’s a problem.

    I’ve also never seen CNN do this:

  3. Oh this is rich. Jon Stewart has caught Sean Hannity using media footage to “enhance” his story.

    We know about 10000 (according to the NY Post. The DC police put the number at 3500) people showed up to Michelle Bachman’s get together against health care reform. In Hannity’s report he uses footage from a September 12 rally whenever they cut to crowd shots. They never mention this in the report. Way to go Fox!! 🙂
