Forever Light Posted February 4, 2004 Report Share Posted February 4, 2004 This disturbed me. The story itself doesnt disturb me but the fact that a "news" company is "projecting" what the news "will be". At that point it stops being news reporting and becomes an attempt at news manufacturing. I couldnt resist but to share so thats why this is in the rubbish pit. This is the headline at CNN at the moment although im posting here since it will change quite soon... "Kerry wins Delaware, Missouri, CNN projects" And the brief snippet of the article... "Democratic front-runner John Kerry WILL win primaries in Delaware and Missouri, and John Edwards in South Carolina, CNN projects. Seven states are holding primaries and caucuses today." They of course have their insurance in the "CNN projects" portion but its disturbing that they should be projecting anything of their own accord in the first place.
