“Some of the Most Historic Shirts Money Can Buy”

shirt_1-30b.bmpEarlier this week, WebNewser wrote about ABC and NBC releasing Inauguration-related DVDs in March.

Now CNN.com is getting in the Inauguration memorabilia game, with an entire section of CNN.com headline t-shirts about the event. The tagline: “Some of the most historic shirts money can buy.”

Selling headline t-shirts is not new at CNN.com. But with samples yesterday like “Pole dancers spice up school program” and “Tumbling economy can’t stop love,” do the Inaugural shirts take the business move to a different level?

Canada Free Press editor Judi McLeod thinks CNN is “not only cashing in on the sales of the T-shirts, it provides tangible proof that ‘The News is Propaganda.’”

What do you think?
