A corrupt press is far more dangerous as it reaches far more people and appears to the unwashed masses independent and fair.
First, there was ABC's ugly attempt to link the Batman murderer to the Tea Party.
And now, it's being revealed that the supposedly anti-gay comments of Chik-Fil-A President Dan Cathy simply didn't happen. Mr. Cathy spoke glowingly of the traditional family unit, but never discussed any opposition to gay marriage. In fact, the interview never even covered the subject of gay marriage.
CNN simply assumed his respect for traditional marriage equated with opposition to gay marriage and attributed it to him.
How sloppy. How careless. How wrong...
