Did I influence Hugh Hewitt's CNN appearance?

Last night Hugh Hewitt asked his listeners to call in and give him suggestions on things to mention on CNN regarding how the MSM is covering Iraq and their biases.

I got through and said this.

"Hugh, Maybe it's so ingrained in CNN to whitewash the news out of Iraq, because of all those years having a deal with Saddam so they could keep their Baghdad bureau, that they just can't report the good news."

And what is on Hugh's site today?

I began the segment by reminding the audience of CNN's Eason Jordan's confession of CNN self-censorship on the awful brutality of Saddam's regime --published in the New York Times in April of 2003
-- and of MSM predictions of quagmire that began with the dust storm that interrupted the march to Baghdad, and which discounted all three of the elections that led to the current government.
