Thanks for clarifying that, CNN
A CNN political reporter has taken an active role raising money for the Obama campaign. The cable network, which has in the past claimed to be a neutral ground between Fox on the right and MSNBC ont he left, still employs him. We appreciate the clarification.
The great Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters has the story at that invaluable site:
On September 13, CNN political reporter Peter Hamby sent an Obama campaign donation request form to his Twitter followers:

You can view the donation page he links to here.
CNN styles itself "the most trusted name in news." Now, we know that it means trusted to be on Obama's side.
Imagine for a moment that a Fox News reporter had tweeted the fundraising page of Romney to followers. It would be the top story at CBSNBCABCMSNBC and the NYT. Hamby's tweet has been out there for 5 days now.
