6. Not sure I agree with Newt about that

I should say I never watch Fox "news" and have only rarely watched C"N"N in the past ten years. But it seems to me that CNN is so afraid and intimidated by insane right wingers that they defer to them at every opportunity.

Everything CNN says or does is ridiculed or criticized by wing nuts. So what do they do? They try even harder to please those who ridicule them with the result that they wind up being extremely one sided in their coverage.

In a way this is true of all of the liberal media, but IMO CNN is by far the worst. Sometimes it seems to me that they are physically afraid of the lunatic fringe, like some loonies will come into the studio and kick their asses unless they praise them and treat them as a legitimate political entity.

Fox is a joke, it isn't a purveyor of "news". But CNN still likes to pretend they are legit.
