CNN Does Election Eve Hatchet Job On Obama Over NAFTA

The controversy over what a low level Obama stafer may of said about NAFTA to Canadian government officials has been offered up as a flown blown scandal by CNN and reporter Candy Crowley. It appears the motivating factor for such reporting is to improve CNN's ratings since several news agencies and the Canadians themselves have refuted the story.

The problem with this particular report is it comes at a moment when the Obama campaign would least want it too happen, hours before the polls open and at a time where it can not be responded to effectively. Because of the questionable nature of the facts, as reported by CNN, it certainly should raise questions about why Crowley and CNN have make it a centerpiece of the election eve coverage before todays elections in Ohio, Texas, Vermont, and Road Island.
