Editor's note: Each week, Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) takes on the media's biggest blunders. This week on FAIR TV, they look at how the media neglected to mention Obama's massive escalation of the war in Afghanistan when covering the White House's timeline for troop withdrawals in the country. They also take on the media's current push to frame Jeb Bush as smart, as he is seen as a lead contender for the 2016 Republican presidential primary. FAIR also wonders why CNN had non-climate change expert Ann Coulter on their show to defend Pat Sajak.
