We know CNN -- the "most busted name in news" -- has had a rough few months years, as their ratings slide and as they attempt to rebrand as "Fox Lite."  We saw this clip at "Crooks and Liars" of Wolf "Cry Wolf" Blitzer making what can only be described as a tin ear transition from discussing the Iran nuclear agreement to a program looking at the assassination of President Kennedy:

While it's not up there with his prompting a woman to "thank God" for surviving a tornado, only to find out she was an atheist, or CNN's bungled coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing, where he and John King were peddling false information off their i-Phones, it's another small sign of a network flailing.
