Is Carville Writing Ad Copy for CNN?

SWNID has little use for any particular television news outlet. Most offer j-school pablum, made even more bland for safe consumption by senior citizens. Though clearly catering to the right, Fox News is in the SWNIDish estimation shrill and jingoistic. We are not a fan.

Nevertheless, Murdoch's Fox is cleaning up in ratings, while Turner's CNN, once ascendant, is slipping.

So is it a big surprise that CNN is now advertising as if the competition between them and Fox is a political campaign, all about distortions of what the other guy has said?

We look forward to the next time that a CNN commentator decries the lack of civility in political discourse.
