Chris Cuomo Gleeful Over MSM's Ability to Subvert US War Effort

Chris Cuomo, alleged ABC "journalist" and son of former Democratic New York State Governor Mario Cuomo, appeared on Tuesday's "Good Morning America" with Washington Post columnist Howard Kurtz as the pair spent some time congratulating each other on the mainstream news' success in making Iraq war unpopular:
At the same time, Cuomo and Washington Post reporter seemed to be proud of the media's ability to turn Americans against the war in Iraq. Kurtz, who has written a book on the subject, asserted, "I believe that these newscasts in 2005 and 2006 played the biggest single role in helping to turn public opinion against the war."

Cuomo agreed and complimented the journalist's analysis. He enthused, "It's easy to say, 'Oh, well. The war was unpopular. People were looking for the unpopularity of it. At some point, the networks gave that to them.' But you have a more penetrating look at it. You take a look at it in terms of the role of the nightly newscasts in shaping the ideas about the news..." According to Kurtz, the top three network anchors kept "framing the story in such a way" that the bad news finally had an impact.
Not only have these nitwits now openly confessed top what the right side of the blogosphere has been accusing them of, they're proud of it.

By the way, ABC also employs former(?) Clintonista George Stephanopolous as a "journalist."
