I've been linking to CNN quite a bit, but they are completely full of shit lots of times, and I frequently find myself pissed at their "reporting". Take, for instance, this.

What pissed me off was the line "a building complex resembling New York's twin towers". If you saw this mural, but it didn't have an airplane crashing into one of the buildings, would you immediately think WTC? Maybe some, but not all. Of course, with the plane there in flames, we naturally think WTC. Chances are this mural was made post-September 11th, but I don't think they know for sure. Reporting "news" like this is just manipulative and inflammatory.
