If You Saw CNN's Reliable Sources This Morning, You Saw What's Wrong With Cable News

Two guests argued back and forth, over and over, about a single page on a single website, and whether it had links to another website. One said it did, the other said it didn't. Back and forth. Over and over.

And it never occurred to anyone at CNN to use a computer, a smartphone -- or even that big-ass screen they're so proud of -- and just go to the page and see who's right.  Checking facts is so simple -- especially this one! -- yet cable news lets people lie all day. Every show has an anchor with an earpiece, so why isn't anyone using it to tell him or her the truth?
