That ship has sailed! CNN used to just report the news and did it very well, then Fox came along and created an alternate universe where bullshit is reality and the majority of America now believe such horse shit as Obama is a Kenyan Muslum and even still believe that WMD was found in Iraq. So what’s wrong with a progressive counterbalance, and one that actually names it’s evidence. So if you don’t want to watch it don’t, I happen to really dig MSNBC‘s breath of fresh air!
