Either CNN's standards were absurdly low to begin with....

...or they've dropped considerably, earning their moniker of Chicken Noodle News. I was doing a bit of running at the gym scanning the TV banks for something interesting to watch. There's something very wrong when the best footage CNN could come up with for their leading story (Rielle Hunter & John Edwards) was courtesy of Extra! TV. Just remember these are the same people who complain that bloggers don't have 'integrity'.

Legacy media indeed (Instapundit). It's remarkable to watch how how this story has morphed from one about a repugnant politician to how the media can't be trusted to give us the news and how reporters are now bumbling around pretending as if they still matter.
