CNN Sucks

No news there, right? After all, how can you have Nancy Grace and Glenn Beck (not to mention GOP op-by-marriage Campbell Brown) and not be morally compromised? But here's a new one.

Producer Chez Pazienza, a fine writer and proprietor of the excellent blog Deus Ex Malcontent, has been canned from his CNN producer post -- you guessed it, for blogging unapproved content.

According to Chez, he was terminated for violating network policy by not running what he was writing through their vetting system. So he was fired not for blogging but for the content of his blog. “It’s not that I’ve been writing,” he wrote in an email. “It’s WHAT I’ve been writing.”

Figures. And it didn't matter that he refrained from mentioning CNN at all, but this is the way they operate these days. I'd say boycott, but I honestly don't recall the last time I actually watched either CNN or Headline News.

Larry King has just dug up an aged Bob Dole to do an entire show on John McCain being too old to be president. Hillary can't win on her own so we declare the competition frail? Kiss my Canadian ass - we may not have private health care but we're not idiots.

But that's really rare because I think it's expression and everybody has the right to expression, so I'd like to investigate more about it.
