A day late and a dollar short: CNN finds Democrats at Tea Parties

Last week, The New York Times detailed the steady decline of CNN’s ratings, noting CNN’s main hosts have lost half their viewership in just one year. Perhaps viewers are fleeing because of CNN's timely reporting.
CNN: Grand Junction, Colorado (CNN) -- They are not typical Tea Party activists: A woman who voted for President Obama and believes he's a "phenomenal speaker." Another who said she was a "knee-jerk, bleeding heart liberal."
These two women are not alone.
Some Americans who say they have been sympathetic to Democratic causes in the past -- some even voted for Democratic candidates -- are angry with President Obama and his party. They say they are now supporting the Tea Party -- a movement that champions less government, lower taxes and the defeat of Democrats even though it's not formally aligned with the Republican Party. [..] 
CNN is just now finding out that there are Democrats at the Tea Parties! Damn, I knew about that last year!  
There was a small group of Obama supporters who were against all the spending but still supported Obama. They seem to blame Congress but not the President, go figure... 
Of course CNN could have also learned that Democrats were at Tea Parties last year, however they were rather preoccupied creating their own narrative.

I would put CNN in the Butthead category.
