Politico is reporting that President Bush's former homeland security adviser and current intelligence advisory board member Fran Townsend is joining CNN as a contributor. Joining former White House press secretary Tony Snow as the second Bush sycophant to join the network in the last two weeks, Townsend's addition is apparently designed to help make CNN the "right choice" during its election '08 coverage.
While George W. Bush may be most disliked President in modern American history, his one-time mouthpieces are very popular at CNN indeed.
Yes, they certainly are. You know, I'm not afraid of conservative voices on the air, but I'm curious where is CNN's responsibility to provide thoughtful voices on the left? Especially when they make a point of including someone only too happy to pimp White House talking points like this one, upon her departure from Homeland Security.
Is Paul Begala to be the only voice of the left on CNN?
