CNN reports rewrites the story

Ward Harkavy at the Village Voice catches the spin at CNN, who finally report on the Downing Street Minutes with this lede on Headline News:
But this evening, here's CNN Headline News saying that the Downing Street Memo "suggests that the Bush administration saw the Iraq war as inevitable …"
Well, unless you've been sleeping under a rock this week, you know of course, that the Minutes suggest much more than that. It proves Bush was hellbent for war and nothing - certainly not the truth - was going to stop him. As Harkavy notes, CNN did vow to bring "story telling" back to the format. Who knew they were talking about fiction?
