CNS Fights Against Bipartisan Budget Deal (And Loses)
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com isn't even bothering to live up to its mission statement to "fairly present all legitimate sides of a story" in its coverage of the bipartisan budget deal. The hate it, and aren't afraid of skewing its coverage to show it.

A "news" article by editor in chief Terry Jeffrey carries the overly long headline "Debt Up $3T In Less Than 3 Yrs Under Boehner's Deals; More Than Under All Presidents from Washington Through Reagan"  -- apparently, Jeffrey wanted his opinion made clear even if nobody read the article. Another CNS article goes after Boehner by highlighting his criticism of conservative opponents to the budget deal (like Jeffrey and CNS). CNS also scares up a right-wing congressman to criticize the deal.

The opinion pieces are just as slanted. One carries the headline "Budget Deal Is a Huge Republican Cave-In," and another lists "3 Things You Need to Know About Congressional Budget Deal," none of which are crafted for right-wingers to like.

But CNS' blatant editorializing didn't work -- the House approved the budget deal in a landslide.

Perhaps CNS might have a little more sway if it actually lived up to its mission statement and reported in a fair and balanced fashion.
