CNN premptively backpedals. “Oh noes!”

I thought this was pretty funny.  From the original CNN article, they cautioned, “But will Obama be a great one? Even a good one?  The Americans who are comparing him to those remarkable predecessors are putting a lot of faith in a man they barely know.”

NOW CNN Warns That we ‘Barely Know’ Obama?

CNN is warning Americans that already making Barack Obama into one of America’s greatest “heroes” may not be a good idea. Despite the fact that Barack Obama has yet to take office, despite that he has yet to really do anything to earn that status, CNN is saying that “already, he’s being compared to the most remarkable leaders.”

It might make one amazed that now, after cheerleading for him for the last four years, CNN suddenly finds that calling Obama a hero is not necessarily the best idea. “The Americans who are comparing him to those remarkable predecessors,” CNN warns, “are putting a lot of faith in a man they barely know.”

And why do we “barely know” Barack Obama, CNN? Is it perhaps because the American media never took the time to vet this man? Is it because all we’ve gotten is hero worship from the media?
