Last night, CNN was actually discussing this on AC 360. In fact Jeffrey Toobin, a CNN political and legal analyst, said even he himself who works for CNN thought they gave the guy way to much attention. I totally agree with you that people like this preacher don't deserve any air time. I will say to CNN's credit though, when the guy came out to speak yesterday CNN probably had no idea what he was going to say. Even then, apparently he really stretched the truth as to what he had been promised. The real question in all of this is why in the world was a Church of just 30 people given so much attention? The main reason was that General Petraeus came out first and condemned the activity in order to protect US soldiers. With that said, I do think most of the National Media gave this Church way to much attention. He is obviously a lune. In the end, the church does have a Constitutional right to continue on with the activity. If they do, I hope the media will give him limited to no coverage(although I doubt that will happen). Once the deed has been done, the story will be forgotten in three weeks.
