Today, CREW and Media Matters sent a letter to CNN President Jonathan Klein requesting that former Christian Coalition head Ralph Reed, a central figure in the Jack Abramoff scandal “with a deep bias against one of the major Republican candidates,” no longer be part of CNN’s political coverage. The letter reads:

If asked, most people would probably agree that “the best political team on television” would not include a person with a tenuous relationship with the truth and a well-known enmity toward a particular candidate. As Mr. Reed is, indeed, just such a person, CNN has no business including Mr. Reed as part of its hyped political team in future presidential news coverage.
