I need to say, for the last 7 or so years, I've found CNN to be far more about commercializing/entertainment-izing the news, rather than actually reporting it. I mean, for heaven's sake, they sell t-shirts of your favorite headlines. What does that say about the endemic incentives to their writers?

The point of any commercial station is to keep viewers tuned in and watching ads. It's sort of sad to see CNN sink to that kind of pandering, but... then again... here they are with viral support via failblog. :) I'm cynical enough these days that I don't even make assumptions about whether that was accidental.

Which isn't to say that accidents do occasionally happen, i.e. Wolf Blitzer's infamous "so poor, so black" comment, back with Katrina.
