CNN’s politics page has a big feature story headlined “Fellow Legislator Saw Little ‘Bold’ About Obama” with a introspective, solemn pic of Obama. Then you read the story. And the colleague is a guy named Dan Cronin, a Republican.
Shouldn’t they have spoken to one of the Republicans who now has positive things to say about Obama? Oh, wait …
Late Update: Turns out Cronin is actually a member of McCain’s Illinois leadership team. (Good catch by TPM Reader TK) At this point, this amounts to CNN being spoofed. Correction or some explanation is in order, guys.
