One for the Huh? News: Clinton’s "Power Grab"

Media Matters has a lot to say on CNN’s Situation Room reporting on the purported Clinton “power grab” at the State Department:

Summary: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer teased a segment by saying, “Hillary Clinton’s power grab — at least some are calling it that. The secretary of state wants to take back resources that she feels rightfully belong to her department.” During the report, Jill Dougherty stated: “Hillary Clinton is back on the campaign trail, this time to take back power and resources for the State Department.” However, neither noted that President Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have both supported expanding the role of the State Department.

Oh, my, my! Who are calling it that besides Wolf? and Jill? Read the whole thing here.
