5. What's kinda funny about this is that...
...the freepers who read further are going to be really disappointed and the one who don't will eventually look like fools when they go around repeating this.

42. The thing is, it's Pukes who are being indicted on a daily basis.
When they spew their lies about Dems, that's no 'indictment' it's just a compliment.

Speaking of indictments, I expect Gale Norton to be frogmarched and indicted sometime very soon now.

25. Nope. Both have large shares in AOL/TimeWarner.
Why do you think CNN was so hard on Clinton after 1996 and then Gore and Kerry while letting Bush skate for most of his term?

I can't see how ANY person can ignore the corporate machine that controls the news.

12. We'll let the GOP work that side of the street.
Seems like wishful thinking on the part of the CNN headline writer to me. They're really showing their bias. :eyes:

CNN might not be responsible. It could have been someone over at Netscape.

19. I smell something fishy...
There's no byline on the piece, for starters. It says at the end that it's copyright by Associated Press, but AP wire stories in variably carry a byline.

43. Both sites have feedback forms.
Just click on "contact us" at CNN (left-hand side) and "Help" (at the bottom of the page) at Netscape.

I just filled out the forms, cited the headline and origin of the story (Associated Press), and mentioned that the headline was both politically biased and misleading. Just the facts, ma'am/sir.

18. looks like CNN is trying to be Fox
pathetic really. A news service that puts out garbage like that lose any cred they may have had to begin with.

Its the medias fault that the country is so uninformed.

23. CNN Live just put up "Democrats on the Run" in a big caption across the
screen (above the scroll) in a piece that John King was doing about possible Dem candidates for 08. It was huge....WTF is going on with them... This is really "in your face" stuff..

They see things unraveling before their eyes, and they're working like mad to reverse the trend.

38. I think you're post title is extremely misleading...
CNN's headline is a LIE. It's FALSE.

Not one Democrat has been indicted. Neither Kerry nor Clinton are targets.

To call it simply "misleading" is itself misleading.
