I am wondering why CNN defended Romney. They lean left. Do they sense that in light of an overwhelming consensus that Romney decisively won the the first debate their organization cannot afford to appear anything less than fair and balanced on this one? Otherwise they would risk exposing themselves as the Obama lovers they are (or have been) and thus degrade their credibility.
Or perhaps they are still upset with Obama for jilting them on the Libya thing.
Something is going on with them.
