In canceling Crossfire CNN's chief explained that they are going to do more "roll-up-your-sleeves storytelling". That is all well and good. Now surf on over to the CNN/Netscape home page and you'll see the image at the right. So there is a major roll up your sleeves story about election problems in Ohio with a forum titled "Dems Going Too Far?" So a major media outlet wants to get a conversation going and instead of asking a question about the election problems in Ohio chooses to focus on the means by which the minority party in the American government is attempting to raise a critical issue. Roll up your sleeves and jump into the mud instead of roll-up-your-sleeves storytelling.
