Today’s paragraphs come in two parts.
The first is from Kelley Paul’s piece at cnn.com. Ms. Paul is the wife of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who, while mowing his lawn, was brutally attacked and suffered severe physical damage after being blindsided by a socialist, Bernie Sanders-supporting neighbor:
I don’t care what your politics are, left right or center, and I don’t care what you think of Rand Paul (personally, I’m no fan). That is gut-wrenching.
But would CNN leave it at that? Would they let Ms. Paul’s piece stand as-is, the way they do for just about everyone else?
Nope, this is CNN. So it decided to add the other guy’s side of the story immediately below Ms. Paul’s:
Editor’s note: Rene Albert Boucher, a neighbor of Senator Paul’s, has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault. His attorney Matthew Baker told CNN in an interview for a story published November 9 that Boucher, an anesthesiologist, regrets the incident. “If he had to do it over again, I can assure you it would have been handled much more diplomatically,” Baker said. The attorney, asked about the motive, said “we should believe” a neighbor, Jim Skaggs, who told CNN there has been a “long-running disagreement” over property maintenance. Baker also said, in a statement, “We sincerely hope that Sen. Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible.”
Does CNN do this every time a leftward commentator puts up materials about conservatives? Can you show me any instances where they actually did? Happy searching, and I’ll see you a long time from now.
I award Kelley Rand Paragraphs Of The Day honors for giving us her side of the story – which, with few exceptions, our woefully biased mainstream media barely touched on.
And I award CNN a (dis)honorable mention for trying to deny/debunk Ms. Paul on the spot, by giving the man who assaulted her husband the last word.
CNN again earns its title, “The most
trusted busted name in news”.
