CNS Plays Gotcha With Senators Over Arcane Immigration Bill Provision

Notice the common thread in the headlines of these CNSNews.articles:

Sen. Murray: ‘I Do Not Know Exactly’ How Many DUIs an Illegal Can Get and Still be Legalized

Sen. Stabenow: 'I Have No Idea’ How Many DUIs an Illegal Can Get and Still Be Legalized

Sens. Reed, Casey Refuse to Answer Question About How Many DUIs an Illegal Can Get and Be Legalized

That's right -- CNS is playing gotcha, ambushing senators (but only Democratic ones, it appears) with questions about an obscure provision in the immigration reform bill.

Is springing gotcha questions on senators whose ideology the reporters oppose about an obscure provision of a bill said reporters also oppose really responsible "journalism"? We have our doubts.

CNS has a notable history of treating gotcha questions as journalism, as CNS bete noire John Holdren knows all too well. In honor of that, let us relive CNS' greatest gotcha failure, when Barney Frank mocked the CNS videographer for asking him whether gay soldiers should be able to shower with straight ones.
