CNN Reporters Encounter Ordinary Americans In The Wild, Are Confused To Learn They Aren't Also Obsessed With Beltway Kabuki Play
We should probably applaud CNN for recently doing something unique among American cable news media -- they actually made an effort to find out what life is like for actual Americans, instead of creating a bunch of hodgepodge panels out of political strategists to expel balloon juice from their word holes. In the most recent case, the most trusted name in news dispatched a reporter to chat up some senior citizens in Pasadena, California. That's a nice start! But there's room for improvement here: The CNN reporters and anchors could try actually listening to what their interview subjects are telling them.
