CNN Leaves It There

I imagine most readers of liberal blogs have seen this already, but if you haven't, here's one of The Daily Show's best segments on a typical failing in the mainstream media. Fact-checking? What's that? (Most people following health care as an issue would know, roughly, the population of the United States and the number of people who are uninsured. Why don't paid journalists know this, and point it out?)

This is one of the major reasons I do not have a television. I would be throwing a bottle, glass or coffee cup through the thing, nightly. Lying fucks can't even keep their bullshit stories straight. Liberal MSM, my ass; more like Illieterate MSM.
