Apparently here's a bunch of things that probably together helped cause CNN's ignominious fall from false glory.
It appears that the CNN may have come to realize the error of their ways.
Or perhaps they're trying to seduce people back by pretending to be on their side? Impossible to say by just doing one piece in which they're, for a change, nice and polite to the Tea Party folks. After all, politicians act nice, too, but then turn back into their real selves when peoples' attention has turned back elsewhere. Perhaps the CNN is doing that, too. People can watch over the next several months to see whether CNN really has had a change of heart and mind. I personally doubt it. Just watch them remain biased in favor of the Democrats and against the Republicans and Tea Party folks. I just don't see them changing their deeply-ingrained leftist-lemming mentality and insidiously-"progressive" culture, even if staying the way they are means their continuing decline. After all, liberalism/progressivism is a mental disorder.
