The LA Times is calling CNN a corrupt organization because of the Republican YouTube debate.
Their rational is because very little time was spent on the Iraq War and over 30mins on immigration when only 6% of the voting public thinks of it as a major issue.
I don't hold the Times view. By listening to conservative radio it appears immigration is going to be a huge issue at least on the Republican side. Likewise the Republican party hasn't seen the huge swings of opinion toward the Iraq war as Democrats have.
However I think the problems with the debate don't reflect a "Corrupt News Network" but rather problems throughout media as a whole. We trust that a journalistic outlet will do it's research. When they don't it hurts all the media. It's the reason journalists are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians and insurance salesmen (actual fact). The LA Times is even more wrong for it's attack.
The media is the less regulated of any major industry. In fact it's one of the only industries that is allowed self regulation. CNN actually faces more scrutiny than the LA Times because of the FCC. Granted this scrutiny is lax at best. However it is because of cases like this that I believe there needs to be some committee instituted universally of all print and broadcast media that should create some standards under which all can operate.
