CNN Political Bias In Plain View
In their rush to try and show a Bush-Cheney connect to hurricane relief contracts, they could not have gotten it more wrong:
But in their zeal to embarrass the Bush administration, CNN overlooks one very fat and inconvenient fact--and embarrasses only itself. The Shaw Group, a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate, is headed by Jim Bernhard, the current chairman of the Louisiana Democratic Party. Bernhard worked tirelessly for Democrat Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco's runoff campaign and served as co-chair of her transition team. Another Shaw executive was Blanco's campaign manager. Bernhard is back-scratching chums with Blanco, whom he has lent/offered the Shaw Group's corporate jets to on numerous occasions.
CNN, UPI, London Observer, Reuters, MSNBC, CBC, NYT, are all correct to focus on and look for political corruption regarding the contracts, but in a state like Louisiana they need to focus on the democratic party.
Oh that's right, they don't do those types of news stories do they? Zero credibility..............
