Whiny Ignorance or Pandering Cowardice?

A recent CNN Belief blog post took a rather idiotic pot shot at the humor site Funny or Die by posing the question "Sharp satire or offensive stereotyping?" The blurb, "'Cosmos': the creationist version", is only a few lines but does managed to imply a great deal in such a short space. CNN's standards are rather low. Even for a blog this jab is as self-serving and stupid as it is short. I fail to see how such satire, it is satire, can be deemed a stereotype when there are entire denominations/sects whose doctrines and leadership clearly spell out a belief in the type of creationism being lampooned in the video.

I'm going to have to conclude that it both whiny ignorance and pandering cowardice.
