CNN busted

CNN is so busted! TMPtv (via TPM's Horse's Mouth site) has produced this video showing precisely how CNN, that supposed reputable source of news, used "creative editing" to make US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declare that "Congress hasn't done anything." Trouble is, that's not what she really said, her context was specific and her words didn't support the slant of CNN's story. What I don't get is how on earth CNN thought they could get away with this. If you want to know what's at the heart of my criticism of the mainstream news media, this video is pretty much a textbook example.
