‘Finding’ the City of David? CNN Blows it Again

Why can’t the press manage to get anything right?  Are journalists really so ignorant that they can’t pick up a phone and say to someone ‘hey, check this over and let me know if it’s right, ok?’  Come ON!

CNN International has a five-minute video focusing on Khirbet Qeiyafa, the Elah fortress, at http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/international/2011/07/06/ime.maktabi.city.of.david.cnn/ The video, added on July 6, 2011, is (curiously) entitled “Finding the City of David” and (curiously) blurbed “Archaeologists in Israel believe they have found the remains of the legendary City of David.” Both Prof. Yosef Garfinkel and Prof. Israel Finkelstein are interviewed.

It’s not ‘curious’ that CNN titled it that, it’s ignorant.   But at least the sane voice of Finkelstein is heard.  Give it a watch and try not to pull your hair out when the lead in talks about proving the bible and David via Qeiyafa…  Here are a few screenshots:
