Unreal: CNN reporter openly contemptuous of tea parties

posted at 3:25 pm on April 15, 2009 by Allahpundit

A tour de force of bias via TV Newser, from her sarcasm to her Fox-bashing to her badgering a guy who’ll be paying off Obama’s monstrous deficits for decades about why he isn’t satisfied with a $400 tax break this year. The title of the clip is “CNN Reporter Roughed Up at Chicago Tea-Party,” which, as you’ll see, is a transparent lie unless you consider the crowd yelling at her to stop cutting off the people she’s interviewing as “rough.” But that’s par for the course for the narrative being organized here: A nasty, violent, ignorant crowd, all doing the bidding of CNN’s sinister competitor. Stay classy, Turnerites.

Your loss will be a rounding error.

For the rest of us who gladly watch CNN, you won’t be missed.

You guys get together every night for that, eh? Take turns buying the six-pack?

No, it’d have to be more like something in the millions.

Not all of us are stuck to the tune of Murdoch.

However, she was right on, smelling the fear out of those folks. Not odor, but actual fear.

Score one for good reporting at CNN.

That lefty CNN scazwag has a lot of nerve. She badgers the father in front of the child and then has the gall to say its not family viewing. I’d make her eat that microphone.

I’d argue that he’s trying to indoctrinate his family early.

Something really funny about you saying that.

For you not to have a problem with the way this reporter acted is pretty telling.

Seems noblejones should have put a /sarc at the end of his post because you obviously are slowwwwwwww.

Sorry one more

This is indoctrination.

I’ll admit that I do not understand that issue 100% and that can apply in general. I’d want to apologize for such conduct, as my defense of CNN was not with the best information.

That lady went beyond the pale in journalism – and I want to do the honorable thing even if that means getting slings and arrows from any direction.

Its obvious that Susan must have been asleep during civic’s class. Her remarks regarding the government going to give every citizen $400.00 was about one of the dumbest things I heard. The government does not give us anything. They take from us and redistribute after taking a cut of what they receive as a result of our free enterprize system.

God help us is she is even a bit typical of what CNN hires. its no wonder less and less people are watching that news organization. If you can’t even get the basis’ stright how can an organization get the news stright?
