CNN solicits yeast infection.

CNN, the self-anointed “Most Trusted Name in News,” invariably features prominently in wingnut screeds on the evils of the “liberal media.” Why that’s true is anyone’s guess.

Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t CNN (and its ugly redheaded bastard stepchild, CNN Headline News) the outfit that brings us:

1) Lou Dobbs, whose shtick has devolved to point where “i h8 beenrzs plz wach me k thx” is pretty much the be-all and end-all of every show;

2) Glenn Beck, a braying jackass who can barely refrain from shitting himself on camera; and

3) Nancy Grace, who’s elevated pandering to the impotent outrage of willfully ignorant social conservatives to an art form?

Isn’t CNN also the same outfit that repeated ad nauseam the story of LaLohan’s latest DUI arrest on the same day that the Attorney General of the United States was busy perjuring himself before the Senate Judiciary Committee?

Apparently, that all-star lineup isn’t good enough for CNN’s top brass. Laura Ingraham, who I once saw described as “a yeast infection on the cunt of journalism,” announced on her radio show the other day that CNN invited her to guest-host Paula Zahn’s show for a week. More on the story, along with a tasty sampling of Ingrahamist idiocy, is available here courtesy of Media Matters.

    Laura Ingraham is the poor man’s Ann Coulter.

    Actually, Laura Ingraham is the poor man’s Debbie Schlussel.

    Schlussel is the poor man’s Michelle Malkin.

    Malkin is the poor man’s Ann Coulter.

    You once saw “a yeast infection on the cunt of journalism” where? Is that some sort of sly codeword for ‘oh ho ho, I said that! nudge, wink’ Because that is pretty quotealicious, and I would like to know who to attribute that to!
