CNN: Shill for government-approved sexual assault

This AOL news article is fine, but the CNN video that is embedded is appalling. Texas Senator Patrick is on message and makes all the right points. The anchor (Don Lemon), on the other hand, implies that 1) the senator wants terrorists to board planes and 2) that if the TSA responds to Texan legislation by closing airports that it would be the Senator's fault.

Newsflash, Don Lemon: what the TSA is doing is unconstitutional. It is sexual assault, so it is also just plain illegal. And, if the TSA shuts down airports rather than stop breaking the law, it is the TSA's fault. How can you call yourself a journalist when all you do is repeat the state's propaganda? How about some independence, thoughtfulness, and honesty?
