With music blaring in the background, fans can be seen throwing money and enjoying the company of these dancers as they live life to the fullest - in a stadium parking lot on a Sunday...

Jones was attempting to shame the Chicago Tribune for an editorial touting this purported CNN move to the center -- which sorely lacks evidence so far, other than dismissing a few flagrantly opinionated staffers like Stelter and John Harwood. Jones sounds like a press...
