CNS Managing Editor Is Weirdly Obsessed With Promoting Franklin Graham
CNSNews.com managing editor Michael W. Chapman is quite the fanboy of right-wing evangelist Franklin Graham.
How much so? Since Jan. 1, Chapman has devoted a whopping 25 CNS articles and blog posts to Graham's musings, particularly has anti-Muslim and anti-Obama rantings. That's greater sycophancy that CNS devotes to Mark Levin, and CNS (along with its parent, the Media Research Center) has a business deal with Levin to promote each other that at least somewhat justifies the logrolling.
It also accounts for more than one-third of the 69 total articles Chapman has written since Jan. 1.
Here are how Chapman's fawning stenography of Graham stacks up:

You'd think the managing editor of a website would have better things to do than obsessively clipping a right-wing evangelist -- and a Protestant one at that, presumably much to the chagrin of his uber-Catholic bosses such as Brent Bozell and Terry Jeffrey -- but apparently his job doesn't keep him busy enough.
