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 on all counts.  How utterly revealing of an cramped worldview, in which reporters parade their own ignorant assumptions as fact, regardless of their impact on people or businesses.

Is it any wonder that there is so much widespread disdain and mistrust for the MSM?   Its stock is falling faster than President Obama's.
