CNN’s Home Page: Limo Fire, Jodi Arias, Amanda Knox

There may be some mention in one of the tiny little headline-crawls of Benghazi.  I didn’t see it.  I’m looking at the big links.  Limo Fire, Jodi Arias, Amanda Knox.*  No Gosnell (even though his jury is deliberating, just like Arias’), no Benghazi, no Oregon Medicaid Study.

If you’re the sort of person who thinks that “hard news” like the Jodi Arias murder trail is the biggest news of the day, then CNN is the news network for you.

And I thought the media didn’t cover  “local crime stories”…  


*  I don’t mind the Amanda Knox link, I have to say.  I never read a  single word about this case until Deb linked news of her re-trial last month.  Now I’ve grown obsessed with the case.

The woman, and her alleged co-conspirator Rafealle Solecitto, are slam-dunk 100% innocent, not even close, not even a question.

That said, it seems pretty clear where CNN’s priorities are.
