And now for the "well, duh!" department...
Headline on CNN.com today:
U.S.: Terrorists may be in Iran and Iraq
I never would have known.
I think it was written for the current products of our fine public education system, Bob.
Let's see, I was always told journalistic writing for mass media should target the sixth grade reading and analysis level.
I really shudder to think what that is these days.
(Of course it's CNN, so it also has to be written so Ted can understand it, which probably explains a lot.)
Ted doesn't own CNN, remember? AOL/Time-Warner.
Ted is still there - on the AOL/TW board, IIRC - and apparently still has heavy influence (if not outright control anymore) at CNN.
