We’ll just pretend that CNN is airing a one-hour special on the Jonathan Gruber scandal tonight rather than a one-hour CNN Spotlight on Taylor Swift, which promises to answer such questions as, “What was Swift’s favorite subject in the fifth grade?”

Will Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera be switching over to the competition tonight to tune in? In his opinion, Swift might as well be president.

That’s quite an endorsement from the 70-and-over contingent of Swift’s fan base. Seriously, though, we wish it were easier to disagree.

Maybe we should hold off until Swift has been properly vetted.

Bad news: Swift’s hypnotic powers are infiltrating newsrooms everywhere.
