CNN…….. duh!

I just received this via email alert from CNN…

– The U.S. entered a recession in December 2007, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Really?  Oh no!  You’ve got to be kidding me!  Wonder if there is some reason that it took a full year to determine this, and then waste a pile of electrons sending it to me via email.  There once was a day when I actually valued their email alerts and had them forwarded to my cell phone as a text message to keep in touch with the world when I was away from the computer… Sadly those days are long gone.

What has changed in the US with the media in general over the past few years?  CNN was once a respected news source that could be counted on for fast, reliable, and accurate information.  For those that paid any attention during the year preceding preceding the last election a clear line could be drawn in the sand and almost EVERY news outlet of the “Main Stream Media” would be standing to the left of said line.  The only exception I found was Fox News.  They stayed in the Grey Fuzz that separates left from right 99% of the time.  However it too was clear that most of there reporters and contributors clearly stood on the right, they remained very balanced.
