A "Shocking" Incident

On Saturday morning I was at the gym and CNN was on one of the televisions.  I don't normally watch CNN and now with good reason.  CNN was reporting on the story regarding Mitt Romney as a 17-year- old allegedly being party to holding down a fellow high school  student with long hair who was reportedly effeminate and cutting his hair.  Now for the best part, the reporter actually called it a shocking incident.  Give me a break.  Wrong, yes.  Bully-like, certainly, boys being boys back in 1965, you bet.  I was 17 in the early seventies and doing stupid things was par for the course on any given day.  The bias of today's media is unbelievable on both the left and the right.  What happened to reporters giving us the news in a direct forthright manner and saving the bias for the general public?  For a CNN reporter to call the Romney incident shocking is absurd.  The horrific shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado by a couple of 17-year-olds was shocking; the alleged Mitt Romney incident was stupid.  Even the family of the now deceased victim whose hair was cut is appalled that the incident is being used for political purposes.  It is now become very clear that this Presidential Campaign is going to be quite a ride.

    Couldn't agree with you more. I'm amazed I survived 17! However, I just don't ever see myself listening to FOX. Now, there's shocking!
