CNN Attacks Misleading Obama Campaign Advertisement

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 17, 2012

This past Tuesday, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield took Obama campaign’s press secretary Ben LaBolt to task for posting a misleading advertisement concerning Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s record.  The video is posted below.

It is not unusual for candidates on both sides of the aisle to use misleading and false statements during political campaigns.  This story, however, is unusual on two fronts.  First, is another sign that the fawning press is losing some patients with President Obama.  In addition, candidate Barack Obama ran for the presidency on a platform of bringing change to the corrupt culture in Washington.  This is but another example of breaking that promise.
