We already know that CNSNews.com has pretty much abandoned whatever journalistic objectivity it may have had in order to become an anti-Obama attack machine. Now it's taking things one step further by simply rewriting Republican press releases.
Matt Cover published two CNS articles on Feb. 17 that do nothing but regurgitate Republican National Committee attacks.
In the first article, headlined "On 3rd Anniversary of Obama's $787B Stimulus, Unemployment Sets Record," Cover note: "The Republican National Committee (RNC) highlighted this and dozens of other facts in a 52-page book listing some of the biggest failures of the Obama stimulus. The book is entitled, Obamanomics: Stimulus Deconstructed, Three Years of Failed Policies." IN the second, headlined "Three Years Later, Some of the Stimulus’ Odder Projects: Basket Weaving, Polka Training, Rats on Meth," Cover states that "The hit parade of stimulus projects are the focus of a report from the Republican National Committee called ‘Where did all the Money Go?’ which gives a state-by state breakdown of questionable stimulus projects and failed government investments."
A third article by Cover attacking the stimulus doesn't credit the RNC, but theproject it features -- "a $35,000 grant to the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance to support apprentice basket weavers and help fund the Maine Indian Basketmakers Festival" -- comes straight from the RNC report.
In none of these articles does Cover make any apparent effort to talk to anyone else -- he's just copying-and-pasting Republican talking points.
The RNC must be happy to have such a compliant "journalist" like Cover who's so eager to do their job for them.
