I don't know if this is really considered a diary, but I just had to comment. Forgive me if I interrupt any pie fights in progress, but I just had to rant. Meet me below the squiggly thingy.
Seriously, CNN? I just saw on a commercial - on Bravo, of all places - that you're having a teabagger debate? I realize that you're trying to be Fox Lite, but really? I mean, when you get beaten in the ratings over and over and over, I can see the temptation to go down the "Fair and Balanced" road, but this is a bit much.
I just looked at my wife, and told her, in no uncertain terms, "I know we never watch it anyway, since we get all our news online - but we're never watching CNN again." She agreed. This is too much. I can't support, and I don't think anyone should support, any channel that gives these reactionary, racist, right-wing assholes a forum or a voice. I can't support anything that would give them even the tiniest sliver of credibility.
Like I said, I apologize for wasting anyone's time, but I just thought this was too important not to get out there.
