90. I just popped of an email to CNN. Here it is
In regards to this incredibly biased comment by your "unbiased" news anchor.

<snip>
BLITZER: While they were united today in mourning the death of the pope, U.S. Catholics are a diverse group, as illustrated by two of our Crossfire co-hosts, the conservative Robert Novak, the liberal Paul Begala. Both good Catholics -- I don't know "good" Catholics, but both Catholics. I'm sure Bob is a good Catholic, I'm not so sure about Paul Begala.

BEGALA: Well, now, who are you to pass moral judgment on my religion, Mr. Blitzer? My goodness gracious.

BLITZER: All right, go ahead, go ahead.

BEGALA: On the day of my Holy Father's funeral. My eldest son is named John Paul, after the Pope.

BLITZER: So you are a good Catholic?

BEGALA: I'm serious, that annoys me. I don't think anybody should presume that a liberal is not a good Catholic.

What the hell kind of "news" reporting is this? When it comes to news or political analysis, CNN has no credibility. Your station is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the bushtapo.

17 people protest outside a dying womans room, and the awful CNN gives it 3 weeks of media SATURATION as it supports the bushatapo's designs on the judiciary.

Several hundred thousand people protest the war, and your "news" outfit hardly provides a glance.

What credibility do you feel that your organization deserves?
