All the News That's Fit?
So I was checking in on CNN last night to see what they had to say about what, to me, were the two big stories from yesterday: Congress' investigation into the Solyndra scandal; and the likely Republican victory in the special election in NY-9 to fill Anthony Weiner's vacated seat. Weird, then, that at 8:15 PM CST, fifteen minutes after the polls closed in New York, there was literally nothing on CNN about the NY-9 election, and nothing about the Solyndra hearings. Weird. They had a story about American hitchhikers in Iran being freed, and about the new movie Contagion. Weird that they seemed to be hiding the hard news.
Or, maybe not so weird. I mean, it doesn't help Obama, does it, so it can't be news.
