Rachel Maddow Gives Encore Performance Of Lambasting CNN

Rachel Maddow once again haves at it on criticizing CNN for airing Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s State of the Union response during its prime time coverage, thereby elevating the importance of her speech to equate that of Representative Paul Ryan’s official Republican response. Maddow also argues that by airing the response, CNN has also validated a false Tea Party entity because the group that financially supported Bachmann’s response has almost nothing to do with the actual ‘small-government’ tea party movement.

Read the HuffPost article, video included, here.

I bet Candy Crowley and Roland Martin (and probably Anderson Cooper) were all thinking “oh my god this is such B.S.” They have a point. It really made no sense at all for CNN to air Bachmann’s response. I happen to think that Wolf Blitzer probably didn’t find the logic in broadcasti­ng Bachmann’s response, either, but he probably didn’t have any say, and was told by his bosses to note numerous times that CNN is the only network airing it.

By the way, what the heck was Piers Morgan doing there? The guy can barely be considered a journalist­.
