Note to CNN: Tell the whole story

On their faith segment today, I just watched CNN talk to Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners, a liberal religious organization committed to promoting their progressive version of religious faith and dogma.  Not surprisingly, they lay all blame, immorality, and sin regarding our current financial and debt crisis at the feet of the Republican party. Natch.  Fine.  There's a Christian Right, and despite media narratives to the contrary, a Christian Left.  But at least if you're CNN, try to acknowledge the fact that this is a liberal group.  Maybe - and here's a radical thought, but I've seen it put to good use against Christians on the Right - ask the fellow if he thinks there could be some fault at the feet of, oh I don't know, the Democrats.  Dare I say, even President Obama? 
Expecting our media to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is seeming more pie in the sky with each passing day.

Update:  CNN had to break into the interview, but there was much gushing with love and adoration toward Sojourners, and it looks like they will enthusiastically be invited back!
