It was important enough for CNN to spend a full web-article and a full 2 minute piece for TV.
Reading through the article it seems that they performed an Olympic-sprinter-warming-up type stretch to reach their point which is crystallized in their headline: Palin’s glasses designer likes Obama
Now, sure, according to their reporting that is true. But what the headline chooses to ignore, in order to seem like their is an actual story somewhere in this fluff, is that he likes Palin too. In fact he says that he is “quite right-wing”.
But anyway, I’m not saying that CNN is doing anything all that devious or that they were distorting Kawasaki words beyond recognition. Rather, I’m trying to point out CNN’s tabloid-like tactics in trying to make up a story where there clearly isn’t one. Well, that, and I just find these idiotic pseudo-gotcha fluff stories.
P.s. When will they FINALLY track down the designer of John McCain’s slacks and determine his political leanings? We are waiting CNN!
