Media bias. You decide.
A teenager yawns, checks his watch, twisted his head, and seemed to be sleeping right behind President Bush during a speech in Orlando. It is all caught on tape and David Letterman takes the tape of the 45 minute speech and edits it down into a 45 second bit for his show. It was funny.
CNN picks up what Letterman did with the tape and broadcasts it the next day on one its shows and then tells its viewers that the White House complained and said that the footage had been edited and the kid was not on stage with the President.
This sets off Letterman and he accuses the White House of "An out-and-out, 100 percent lie." and he urges his listeners to vote for Kerry because "the White House was trying to make ME look like a DOPE". Then CNN realizes it made a mistake and that no one from the White House complained at all and calls Letterman to tell him. So Letterman whines ""Now I've called the White House liars, and you know what that means - they're going to start looking into my taxes!"
These people should slow down before they take their sneaky little punches at the President and get the facts right or they might wind up looking like total DOPES.
Did CNN apologize to the White House? Did Letterman apologize to the White House? You know the answers to those questions. CNN did apologize to Letterman. They get away with this stuff.
