Carl Bernstein Joins CNN

Via The Huffington Post: CNN announced yesterday evening that veteran investigative reporter Carl Bernstein will join the network’s political team for the 2008 presidential campaign. No word on whether Mr. Bernstein, who recently published the book A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Clinton, will appear with Watergate partner Bob Woodward, another sometime CNN contributor.

Interestingly, in CNN’s press release, Mr. Bernstein praises the network for demonstrating “time and again a sincere effort to go beyond the horserace.” That seems to be an attribute CNN is stressing lately — whether or not it’s actually, you know, true, is another matter.
