If anyone has any remaining doubts whether CNN is totally tanked for Obama, consider that the cable news network felt the need to defend the president with a "fact check" segment analyzing a Saturday Night Live skit which lampooned Obama:
Notice how CNN points out which elements of the skit which, in the reporter's opinion, don't accurately reflect on the president's record, while it praises Tina Fey's portrayal of Sarah Palin as "spot on." Fact-checking CNN's fact-checking, Sarah Palin never said "I can see Russia from my backyard," as Fey's punchline has led many to believe. The former Alaska governor actually said that you can see Russia from Alaska, which is a fact of geography.
But CNN never worried that people who get their news from television comedy programs might be mislead by the humor technique of exaggeration until the object of its affection was the one who was in the line of funny fire. George Bush "misunderestimated"? No problem. Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house? Spot on. But Obama is a president of little accomplishment? Suddenly it's the Battle of Britain. Urgent! Call out the fact checkers! Defend The One at all costs!
CNN is the double standard bearer of cable news.
