Can I take a moment to complain about CNN again.

Jim G at the Campaign Spot noted last week how silly it was for CNN failing to "Google" the YouTube video questioners who later turned out to be Democrat volunteers. Well, it looks like they lost the URL again.

I am getting loads of calls and emails from my Mormons friends praising the speech but furious at CNN for the sidebar shenanigans they threw up there during Romney's talk.

Why? Because they botched it again! On several counts.
  • Sidebar: "About 3 million Mormons world wide about 6 million in the US" Yikes, what is this 1995?! There are almost 13 million members of the church. For goodness sake all they needed to do was call an 801 area code number randomly. My 10 year old knows this!
  • Sidebar: "Accept the Bible as scripture but not as final authority." What?! Where do they get this from? I don't even know what they're trying to imply. Anyone familiar with Mormon doctrine understands that the LDS church is led by a living prophet and relies on revelation. Ugh.
  • Sidebar: "Smith published writings in the Book of Mormon" Ummm. Wrong again. Smith's writings were published in a tome called "Doctrine and Covenants". Regardless of your theory of the origin of the Book of Mormon its not right to call them "writings".
I understand there are other points as well but I was avoiding CNN at the time.

CNN was just AWFUL in their representation AFTER the speech as well. They basically said "Due to Huck's rise, Mitt gave this Mormon speech trying to get the evangelical vote. Now, let's show you all the differences between Mormons and Christians, polygamy this bible that blah blah blah..." It was absolutely absurd. If I didn't suspect the Communist News Network before, I know they are completely bonkers now.

Seriously, why should the MSM demand Romney explain his religion when they seem more than willing to describe it for him?

I like that Communist News Network, fits perfectly...Incompetence at it's best.

I'm willing to bet money that CNN just had a typo and the "1" in "13" disappeared. I hope they will blast the correction.
