And now for the "well, duh!" department

Headline on today:

U.S.: Terrorists may be in Iran and Iraq

I never would have known.

I think it was written for the current products of our fine public education system, Bob.

Let’s see, I was always told journalistic writing for mass media should target the sixth grade reading and analysis level.

I really shudder to think what that is these days.

(Of course it’s CNN, so it also has to be written so Ted can understand it, which probably explains a lot.)


Ted doesn’t own CNN, remember? AOL/Time-Warner.

Ted is still there - on the AOL/TW board, IIRC - and apparently still has heavy influence (if not outright control anymore) at CNN.
