Fox Business Network’s Don Imus on Tuesday tore into CNN’s handling of the Boston Marathon bombings, calling the network’s coverage “absurd and frustrating.” “Remember, there was a time whenever something would happen, we would all turn to CNN,” the “Imus in the Morning” host said. “But that was a long time ago.

Amazingly, I found quite a bit of good reporting and interviews on MSNBC. I didn’t keep track of the people involved. It was scary. I mostly watched Fox but sometimes their audio was horrible for the press conferences so I would surf through the other channels.

But who is the “best reporter in the business,” according to Imus? Fox News’ Shepard Smith.
Imus needs new jokewriters.

Quickly? Make that “finally finding out”. The difference being that Conservatives have known that for years because — going back to Rush and talk radio — we always had to go hunting for actual data.

The difference now is that leftist bias has become so prevalent that the unwashed masses are starting to notice, and alternative news sources are becoming not only ubiquitous but also high quality, and you have a recipe for MSM gatekeeper fail.

Well, if you consider CNN an advocate for Progressives, then they’re a success. But they no longer are a news organization.
