Erin Burnett Gets Opinionated In Commentary On Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns

On her CNN program, Erin Burnett dedicated a segment to Mitt Romney‘s tax returns. Not content to simply present the facts of the matter, Burnett decided to get a little opinionated, urging Romney to release his tax returns, and assuming that he wasn’t releasing them because he took advantage of offshore tax shelters.

WATCH:

Politico’s Dylan Byers uses the segment to suggest that CNN is changing course: “So perhaps this is an effort to inject some personality in the mix. But it’s certainly not an effort to cover the news. In fact, it seems like an effort to create it.”

Of course, as Inside Cable News notes, this is hardly uncharted territory for CNN or Burnett: “Campbell Brown once famously called out the McCain campaign to “Free Sarah Palin”. In fact this is hardly unique behavior for Burnett either. She had previously taken on Occupy Wall Street which sort of wound up blowing up in her face a bit.”
