CNN'S SHANNON TRAVIS REPORTS "LIVE" FROM THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS
Shannon Travis, a CNN political producer tagged along with the Tea Party Express III tour to see what all the fuss was about. After reading the article a few times, I'm not overly impressed with the effort, especially the part where he retells the story from a Washington DC rally where black congressmen say they were called the "N" word or spat upon.
The incident NEVER happened, yet this CNN reporter repeats it as if it did, and does so in the opening paragraphs. Love to see him do a follow-up admitting that it never took place, but I doubt CNN has neither the time nor inclination to do so.
My grade for this coverage: D. (he did spell CNN correctly)
