RUSH: Wolf Blitzer, that was from March 13th of 2006. Not one of those was repeated. That was a montage of Wolf Blitzer promoting the lead story during his program, The Situation Room, from four p.m. to seven p.m. This morning, same network, CNN, different host, Kiran Chetry reporting a new survey on American drinking.
CHETRY: There is a new survey from Gallup finding that more Americans are drinking now than at any time in the last quarter century. Sixty-seven percent of those asked, old enough to drink, admit to enjoying at least the occasional cocktail.
RUSH: Yeah, I meant to do this. There’s no mention of Obama at 41% on CNN. No mention of Obama at 41% in the Gallup poll on CNN. Now, we gotta be fair and point out that CNN no longer partners with Gallup. Gallup booted ’em, or one way or the other. Anyway, Obama’s at 41%, and all we get is a poll on drinking on CNN.
