CNN is Spreading Lies Again. Don't Fall For It
Ed Henry just aired a report that WH Democratic sources don't think Coakley will win. Then, he clarified on Twitter that CNN never heard any WH sources claim Coakley will lose.

```SNIP```

The report was refuted by Bill Burton at the WH:

The President is in MA today because he believes Martha Coakley is the right person for the job and indeed will be the next senator from MA.

I wholeheartedly disagree: CNN: Obama advisors expect Coakley to lose


Axelrod has come out publicly and forcefully stating Coakley will win.

"I'm confident she's going to win," said Axelrod, who spoke during an evening briefing for reporters. Axelrod said President Barack Obama, who he said was only just invited by Coakley to come to the state and will travel there Sunday, will help make the difference. "In the polling I've seen," he said, the president's approval rating is "in the 60s."

Ed Henryis now "clarifying" his lies on twitter:

@BLESSEDROSS to be clear, obama advisers themselves did NOT tell me Coakley will lose. CNN is reporting the obama advisers told other Dems

2. Good to hear.
This 'horse race' is a media fabrication due this election taking place in an electoral vacuum. If it wasn't the only race, it wouldn't receive any attention. The M$M has only this to generate its political ratings right now.

So far I only have one TV station blocked but CNN is getting close.

4. Given that there aren't any accountability mechanisms (though there could be)
the American corporate media is "free" to spread lies with impunity- and not just on political matters.
