I was going to exile this to Headlines but CNN’s done its good journalistic deed for the day by rejecting Team Barry’s half-hour of propaganda power, so let’s give it a little extra play. It’s only because The One is, in fact, a liar and a hypocrite on this point (as duly noted by honest Democrat Bob Kerrey) that he can afford tonight’s extravaganza, a fact not lost on Brown, to her credit.

Have you noticed, by the way, that these commentary segments are now a recurring feature of her show? It’s no accident. With O’Reilly and Hannity killing CNN on the right and now Olby and Maddow beating them on the left, straight news reporting during primetime is as dead as, well, public finance is.
