Mixed Review on CNN

I’m glad to report that CNN, unlike MSNBC and Fox News, decided to carry Martin Luther King III’s speech.

I’m less happy that they decided to cut away from the podium to show Morgan Fairchild in the crowd having her picture taken with fans while the speech is going on. Wikipedia reports that Fairchild is “active in raising awareness of AIDS-related issues and environmental protection.”

Also, Wolf Blitzer just called Donna Brazile “a rocker.”

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? Help us by joining CJR today.
