CNS Writes A Republican Press Release
Topic: CNSNews.com

So the Media Research Center's Tim Graham complains about "press releases" being published in the media -- except when they're published by the MRC's own "news" operation, CNS.

Barbara Hollingsworth cranks out another one-source wonder in a Jan. 23 article, in which she uncritically promotes a proposed Republican National Committee resolution stating that "Candidates who stay silent on pro-life issues do not identify with key voters, fail to alert voters to Democrats’ extreme pro-abortion stances, and have lost their elections." The only person Hollingsworth quotes in the article is the author of the resolution, and she makes no effort to offer up an alternative view.

But, apparently, this kind of press-release reporting is OK with Graham as long as it promotes the right-wing agenda.
