Journalistic freedom?

Read this post on Iraqi constitution at CNN and this one at BBC. Wow they both are pretty much reporting the same news but the titles are a world apart. The CNN piece is so biased towards a republican point of view that it tries to give a positive spin even to the rejection of the new constitution. Most probably the constitution will be rejected in October by the Iraqi people (only need 2/3 votes against it in 3/18 provinces). With that the entire political process in Iraq will be back to square one as far as constitution definition is concerned. This in turn will render a huge blow to the exit strategy (if any) that Bush might have in Iraq thus leading to the election of Hillary in 2008 and then the best part - the next sex scandal at White House courtsey Billy "The Wild Boy" Clinton. Hey if CNN can give a spin to a story, I have no credibality to defend.
