CNN shows election bias with victory margin language

CNN said tonight on TV that Republican Scott Walker "narrowly defeats" Democrat Tom Barrett with only a 57%-42% win. That's odd because back in November '08, CNN called Obama's 53%-46% an "overwhelming victory".

Wow. The English language sure changed a lot in 3 1/2 years!

The video has since been removed.

But other sites have picked up on this too, including The PJ Tatler and ConservativeFact.com.

Compare that to CNN’s Obama victory article in November 2008.

Associated Press finally reports that Osama Bin Laden was broke when he died, squandering his fortune on the jihad

This is not news. This has been reported extensively in books for the past 15 years. Lawrence Wright in The Looming Tower detailed how Bin Laden USED to be wealthy, but once he left his family and spent his inheritance on Al Qaeda, recruiting, and training in the 90's and early 2000's, he was broke. The media, for some reason until now, failed to report this important fact and continued portraying Bin Laden as a charismatic billionaire who could go on funding attacks against the U.S. for decades. It's all hogwash.
