Diplomatic Controversies and Lazy ‘Journalism’ at CNN

CNN authors found it sufficient to largely copy and paste from competing statements without adding any value. To call this lazy journalism isn’t entirely accurate, though.

The amount of effort devoted seems to depend on who the story makes look good or bad.
