CNN's lack of ethics in how they edit and present the news to the public is woven into its very structure. One way they do that is by giving a platform for new faces to gain fame in the world of liars and for old faces to continue to prosper as purveyors of untruths and, ironically, giving unknowns more power to attack CNN itself (in some cases, with terror attacks endorsed by Hannity/Fox which remain unconfronted and thus continue... a fascinating pattern of behavior). Here is research by Media Matters proving this point.
