Jon Stewart Torches CNN and Redstate’s Erick Erickson | Mediaite

Jon Stewart Torches CNN and Redstate’s Erick Erickson | Mediaite

Tommy Christopher comments on the Daily Show's treatment of CNN hiring Redstate.com raver Erick Erickson. Christopher inserts a quasi-defense of Erickson's admittedly juvenile commentary:

Without original reporting, there are only a few ways to draw the eyeballs, and stepping over the line is a reliable one.


Therein lies the issue, "without original reporting." Which raises the question again, why is CNN further diluting its journalistic cred with Erick Erickson?
