And the best scolding for their absurd brand of journalism came from Stephen Colbert who satirically suggested the headlines for the rest of the year should just all read “bad thing happens some place; Muslims involved” while journalists devote the rest of their time to the retractions (it’s a must-watch).
With the 2012 election a mere 512 days away, we are re-launching Countdown in time for tonight's Republican primary debate on CNN in New Hampshire. Even though the debate won’t include all the delightful candidates polling below 2%, we’ll try not to be as elitist as CNN is accused of being but we are still launching our 2012 coverage with the first debate that people from Washington care about.
Read it and let us know what you think. And even better, feel free to drop us an email with items we should include in future editions of Countdown.
