For all the really lousy things I could say about CNN and their coverage of the news in general, I've got to give them some kudos for the special they aired, 2008 CNN Hero of the Year. They did a great job of bringing attention to the many people that are doing great work that is going unnoticed by the general public, and none more worthy than their winner this year Liz McCartney who is dedicated to making sure Hurricane Katrina survivors in St. Bernard Parish have a chance of returning to their homes. It would be nice to see CNN do a bit more of this sort of coverage on their network minus the fanfare on a regular basis.
When they start asking Joe Lieberman why he hasn't done his job as Committee Chair and investigated the waste and fraud by the Bush administration after the hurricanes I'll believe they're actually concerned about what happens to the residents of the Gulf coast.
