I'm so glad Warner Todd Huston exposed CNN for the cowards they are, and I'm glad CNN's original story prompted a public outrage. Imagine if no one spoke up...Palin's name would still be there and CNN would think it could get away with anything. I'm happy they were forced to have a modicum of journalistic integrity in this story, but her name should have never been there in the first place.
CNN Scrubs Palin from NewsBusters Covered Criminal Politicians Story
By Warner Todd Huston January 6, 2009 - 02:23
As most of you know, I originally posted this story on Sunday under the headline CNN Places Sarah Palin With 2008's Criminals, Sex Addicts, and the Corrupt here at NewsBusters. It raged all day Sunday in the Blogosphere and into the night among Palin fans and center right bloggers. Greta Van Susteren even posted about it on her FoxNews blog (It garnered 4 pages of comments there, too). A quick Google of the title of my NewsBusters piece gives several pages of hits all across the web. FreeRepublic, Lucianne.com, dozens of blogs and message boards took CNN to task for their outrageous inclusion of Sarah Palin's name among the year's worst criminal politicians.
Well by the time Monday morning arrived, CNN quietly and without explanation or apology erased Sarah Palin from the article I describe earlier.
