Ginning Up a Controversy

CNN certainly isn't the only media outlet currently busy stacking molehills on John Kerry, but it is a prime example of the phenomenon.

Kerry "botched" a joke about Bush. Okay. We get it. Kerry meant to say if one didn't study hard, one could end up quagmired in Iraq just like Bush. He just left off the last three words (which were in the prepared text of his speech). Play the line, play the explanation and then play the reaction to the line. Now try to explain why this tempest in a teapot is repeated every fifteen minutes on CNN.

It's always the silly season on TV.
