Howard Dean Confronted With The Facts
Hat tip to Opus #6 for the priceless video below the fold:
Meanwhile, in typical mainstream-media spin, two anchors on CNN have called for muzzling bloggers because of the Sherrod incident:
Anchors Kyra Phillips and John Roberts discussed the "mixed blessing of the internet," and agreed that there should be a crackdown on anonymous bloggers who disparage others on the internet.I'm willing to bet that most Americans who get their news from the mainstream media, particularly those Americans who have followed the Sherrod incident, are nodding their heads in agreement with what those two CNN anchors said because of the way the story has played in the media.
Phillips wanted to go even further, asking if "there's going to come a point where something's going to have to be done legally" about anonymous bloggers.
"There has to be some point where there's some accountability...."
CNN's two regulation-happy reporters, think the Sherrod situation can help bring attention to the "necessity" of blogging reform if she brings a defamation lawsuit against Andrew Breitbart.
According to Roberts, Sherrod has "the power now and she also has the profile to maybe bring this into a new light, so we'll see where this goes."
