CNN has sign on back that says 'kick me'

In school there was always a joker that would tape a sign to someone's back that said 'kick me'. CNN has chosen to put the sign on its own back by agreeing to air the NARAL commercial known to be egregiously false. The choice to air a commercial from a fringe radical left group that has blatant falsehood is a new low for CNN. It is yet another episode in a long line of choices of major media outlets placing their own survival on the line in order to push an agenda. A news organization must have the trust of its viewers in order to survive. When it comes to news, viewers gravitate to sources they trust. This is evident in the decline of circulation and viewership numbers in many oulets while those like Fox News rise. The elite media, however, would rather be kicked.
