CNN never fails to disappoint

"Our responsibility is to report the news," said Laurie Goldberg, a CNN spokeswoman. "As an organization we stand by our decision and respect the rights of others to disagree with it."

As though you have no responsibilities as U.S. citizens, as though you have no responsibilities to the men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line when duty calls, whether it be a Republican or a Democrat in the White House. As though CNN respecting the rights of others to disagree matters to anyone anymore.

When one of your reporters gets kidnapped in the Middle East, will CNN, who clearly pledges allegiance to the Republic of "Journalism," send an emissary from the National Association of Broadcasters to negotiate his release or even attempt a rescue? Lots of luck.

Do you think that a news organization does NOT have a responsibility to report the news? If they don't, who will? How will you learn the news, from the Official US News Bureau?

I think news organizations have the responsiblity to report news. I think they have the responsibility to not report some news and I think they should have the editorial judgment not to act as a vehicle of propaganda for their country's enemy.
