You'd Almost Think That CNN Looks Down on Ordinary Americans--Except, of Course When CNN Is Condescending to Them!

Clay County is a perfectly nice little place in eastern Kentucky--and it's kinda pretty, actually; The Cable Gamer has been there, and recalls that it is within the Daniel Boone National Forest.
So why did CNN's Gary Tuchman dump all over Clay County? Because it's Hillary Clinton territory? Or because everyone knows that rural Kentucky is for dullards? (And, of course, rural America in general--except for Vermont.)
But don't take my word for it: Take the word of Kentuckians themselves. Indeed, it's fair to say that they are mad. (Maybe Barack Obama can explain their "bitter" pathological predilection for guns, God--and who knows, maybe they even are proud of their country.)
But in the meantime, the folks of Clay County shouldn't be surprised at the way that CNN has treated them.
The only surprise will be if Tuchman or CNN offer a sincere apology.
