Dear CNN & CNN.com

I've sent this comment to CNN:

I find it inappropriate for CNN and CNN.com to suggest that the opinions of talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are newsworthy, much less news. These are not impartial experts. They are rabble rousers, and it does CNN's viewership and readership a disservice to report their intentionally skewed and hyped opinions.

Good point, 1rfruth. I will say that I just noticed the names Limbaugh and Beck in the headlines/teasers but did not open the articles. I don't open articles by or about celebrities or shock jocks, and that now includes even people like Lou Dobbs. Sometimes, I will read articles by or about political advisers such as James Carville or Ed Rollins and editorialists/op-ed writers but not sheer/mere propagandists.
