Is This CNN’s Definition of “Balance?”

As you know, President Obama is in Bejing, China today.  The shots of him there are of course very positive and dignified.  So what does CNN’s Bejing correspondent, Emily Chang do to provide ahem, balance?  During a live shot, she holds up a t-shirt she bought “at a basement souvenir shop” depicting Obama wearing a Red Army uniform that evokes thoughts of Mao Zedong.  “The front of the t-shirt says ‘Serve the People’ in Chinese. On the back, it reads ‘Oba Mao’ in English.”

Obama as Mao 11-16

CNN’s been watching too much Fox.
