CNN "Expert"

I HATE Peter Singer because he holds the most offensive and vile views imaginable. Princeton should be ASHAMED.

And so apparently should CNN who used Singer as an expert on healthcare.

The network failed to mention anything about Singer's extremely controversial background as a euthanasia advocate who defines "person" in such a way as to exclude newborn infants and others -- such as elderly dementia patients -- who lack self-awareness and the ability to make plans. The network promised a response to The Examiner''s inquiries, but finally offered a "no comment" this afternoon.

"Killing a defective infant," Singer has written, "is not morally equivalent to killing a person. Sometimes it is not wrong at all."
Singer once wrote he valued the life of an ant above his own daughter's in a New York Times op-ed a few years back.

I'm all for free speech but condoning these ethics is morally repugnant. The man should be ostracized, not placed on CNN. Disgusting.
