CNN placed Sarah Palin among their list of those disgraced in 2008: Eliot Spitzer,Ted Stevens,Rod Blagojevich,John Edwards, and many others. Other than Sarah Palin, these people mentioned above are bribe-takers,sexual addicts, and many are facing jail time. So why is CNN placing Sarah Palin's name alongside these characters unless they are trying to "brand" Sarah Palin with the public? Like many recent articles from the AP,The UK Guardian, MSNBC, we can add CNN in the category of sensational, deceitful, journalism. It gives credence to Sean Hannity's statement that ' journalism died in 2008'...TRedwine
On CNN's Slide show of Politicians Who Made Decisions For the Wrong Reasons, we have in this order side by side: 1) Blagojevich 2) Edwards 3) Kilpatrick 4) Langford 5) Mahoney, 6) Palin 7) Spitzer and 8) Stevens.
Uhh..where is Charlie Rangel or Bill Richardson ?
Fortunately, we can rely on some in the industry to scour out these reports such as Warner Todd Huston at Newsbusters.
CNN Places Sarah Palin With 2008's Criminals, Sex Addicts, and the Corrupt
By Warner Todd Huston
Showing they have no sense of morality, no grasp of corruption and no understanding of what defines a criminal, CNN gives us another one of those ubiquitous year in review stories, this one titled "Politicians who fell from grace in 2008." In this one, CNN has decided to reveal for us their top eight politicians that found 2008 to be a "career-buster" because of their "crimes and misdemeanors" or their outrageous controversies.
CNN features corruption mired Rod Blagojevich, the sex crazed Elliot Spitzer and John Edwards, and the criminal bribe taker Ted Stevens among four others. Each of these men in the CNN list have either been convicted of criminal actions, are indicted for corruption, lost their positions, been drummed out of their party, or are soon to face jail time. Among these eight criminals, however, is a name that doesn't belong among this class of serial abuser of the public trust. It won't be shocking to note that among the worst sex criminals, bribe takers, liars and thieves in politics for 2008, CNN ridiculously included the name of Governor Sarah Palin.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go
outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens,
nature and the Divine. Because only then does one feel that all is as it
should be and that the Divine wishes to see people happy, amidst the
simple beauty of nature."

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!
