CNN Actually Talking About William Ayers And What He Did

Around 1:30 p.m., CNN did a feature on William Ayers that must have Team McCain high-fiving. I’ve given the network a lot of grief lately, but this was a pretty solid, fair, fact-filled report/discussion.

The headlines under CNN’s special investigations unit’s Drew Griffen as he spoke:

PALIN ATTACKS OBAMA’S TIES WITH WEATHER UNDERGROUND FIGURE

PALIN; OBAMA CONSORTS WITH “FORMER DOMESTIC TERRORIST”

Griffen: “Ayers was indeed a domestic terrorist, according to the FBI.”

He shows an Obama surrogate arguing that their past relationship is not relevant. He concludes, “that’s the spin from them, that what happens in the past is the past, and what happens in the present day is not related to the past.”
