CNN brings the stupid

I was just watching CNN (or more accurately, I had it on while I was feeding Sara) and they are running some special all day called "From Lincoln to Obama." Frankly, I think that's a little over the top. I know that Obama sells right now and that they're trying to find some way to get people to watch their coverage of Lincoln's 200th birthday, but the whole thing seems contrived.

Anyway, they just went to a correspondent at the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois to interview some college students from the University of Illinois-Springfield about Lincoln's legacy. They asked the first student what Lincoln meant to him or some such thing and he replied that while Lincoln did some great things, he might not have been all he was cracked up to be because he was a slave owner.


Bad enough that any college student or graduate would have the idea that Lincoln owned slaves, but maybe worse, the bubblehead doing the interview didn't correct him.

Way to go CNN.
