CNN's subtle lie

CNN's web site betrays their editorial bias with this headline, screen capped here for posterity just in case they change it. The headline accompanies this article, which manages to contradict the headline right in the first paragraph:
P.J. Crowley abruptly resigned Sunday as State Department spokesman over controversial comments he made about the Bradley Manning case.
So, over what issue did Crowley resign? Was it a principled protest over Pvt. Bradley Manning's treatment as the headline implies, or was it in disgrace over his comments about his treatment? Clearly, CNN would prefer you believe it was the former, and hopes you won't actually read the article which makes it readily apparent that Crowley was fired.

Crowley needs a good waterboarding .... as soon as they finish warterboarding Manning... There's no question that Crowley was forced to resign - his replacement was alreaady on board (not on waterboard tho, dang it!)

I actually am OK with what Crowley said - he was stating his own opinion. He happens to be wrong, but he is still entitled to it.

Obama's entire administration is a comedy of the left hand not knowing or caring what the right hand is doing... and this confusion does NOT stand the USA in good stead around the world... they should speak with one voice, even if they are ALL wrong.
