CNN’s “Hype Machine?”

CBS’s Public Eye co-editor, Matthew Felling, says that “CNN has stretched the definition of news to a nearly incomprehensible level” in promoting tonight’s CNN/YouTube debate.

>Update: Anderson Cooper with Lou Dobbs: “We were up until about 3 O’Clock this morning” looking at potential YouTube questions for the debate… (okay, so I guess I’m buying into the hype).
