CNN: Why not report the news?

I had CNN on this morning as I got ready for work, which usually upsets me these days. They had yet another "Obama vs. Clinton" clip-fest interspersed with movie clips depicting Clinton as King Kong and Obama as Godzilla, which was distasteful enough. Guys, this is a presidential campaign, not the WWF. Then they kept repeating that Clinton won Texas, which isn't true. Clinton won the popular vote, Obama won the caucus, and Obama will get more delegates from Texas than Clinton will, which is the point of the entire exercise. I guess since that takes more than a few seconds to explain and isn't a neatly packaged win/lose sound bite, CNN can't be bothered not to mislead their viewers. "The most trusted name in news", indeed.
