Just watched a Little bit of CNN... and OMG the reporter was trying to shove a lot of words in the Army Core of Engineers mouth... She was cutting him off every time she got an answer she didn't want..

See what I mean. You would like to think CNN could be nuetral, but apparently not. Evyone has their own agenda.

Does anyone take CNN seriously anymore?

Its best we wait for a press conference so the can speak on their own findings, and not was the media outlets want them to say. CNN is such a blood-lust joke. If there were no fatalities, they'd be off the story so fast, it'd make our head spin.

I dont take any news Media seriously anymore. They all lie and hold back the truth to just make things look a cretin way.

Yeah I would like to see what they say after they investigate the failure... I am very intrigued by what caused that bridge to fail.. Yes I realize that everything we are hearing and seeing is speculation.. I am very interested and will be following this closely

And I'd like to repeat myself.. My heart and thoughts are with those families that lived to tell, and those families that lost loved ones yesterday... Every thing in life takes a back seat to the family and people in our lives..

The Clinton News Network, taken seriously? Doubt it.

I watch CNN only because it is the only American all day news channel that we get, I do laugh a lot at their bias reporting, it is quite funny.

I saw that interview with the Army Core of Engineers, yes, she tried her damnedest to get the answer she wanted. I also found it funny that they called Homeland security first and not the Governor'* office

If anyone in the States has an opportunity to watch a Canadian news broadcast, do it, and you will see such a difference.
