Video: CNN not exactly buying the War on Wimmenses meme

posted at 6:31 pm on May 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

I missed this a couple of days ago, but reader Mike V brought it to my attention this morning, and it’s definitely worth watching. MoveOn spokesman Justin Ruben appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 to amplify their claim that the Republican insistence on using ObamaCare funds to pay for the student-loan subsidy program was just another example of the War on Wimmenses.  When Cooper points out that MoveOn had nothing to say when Democrats proposed to use the fund for other priorities, the MoveOn flack stammers, “I think that’s just not true,” but Cooper then drops an Obama bomb on his head.  MoveOn’s outgunned mouthpiece then makes the claim that MoveOn fights Obama “all the time! … We’ve cut ads against Obama!”  Er …

You can read the full transcript here, but this is the money part:

COOPER: President Obama himself agreed to take money out. His budget, in fact, for 2013 specifies taking billions of dollars out for this. But you don’t say he’s targeting women, do you? I haven’t heard MoveOn.org say President Obama is targeting women’s health, that the Democrats are targeting women’s health five months ago. Now it’s Republicans targeting women’s health because they are wanting to do it.

RUBEN: You know, the fact is you have — we have millions of –

(CROSSTALK)

COOPER: So when –

RUBEN: — MoveOn members who benefit from programs –

COOPER: So when President Obama –

RUBEN: Rely on these programs — COOPER: Wanted to –

RUBEN: We fight president — we’ve fought President Obama all the time.

COOPER: So — so where’s your ad for — where’s your ad saying President Obama is targeting women?

RUBEN: We’ve run ads against President Obama. But the fact is if you want to look at who is consistently targeting women, who is — you know, who’s the party that’s trying to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, who is the party that has consistently been trying to cut funding for cervical cancer and Pap smears? That’s the Republicans.

And we’re going to call that out. And of course they’re going to try to dodge and get away from that. But the fact is, it’s true. There are over $200 million of 2013 funding that they are zeroing out.

COOPER: And Obama’s 2013 budget when –

RUBEN: And the bottom line is this is — we shouldn’t be having this conversation. Why are we having a conversation — look, you have student loan rates –

COOPER: Because my job is to report on facts. Not to meet your agenda. And when President Obama suggests in his 2012 budget cutting billions of dollars from this, I don’t see a MoveOn.org ad saying President Obama is attacking women. You only seem to be targeting Republicans because that meets your political agenda.

RUBEN: I just — I just don’t think that’s true. I mean look –

COOPER: So when President Obama wants to cut money from this, that’s not targeting women?

RUBEN: President Obama wants to — look, was it a problem –

COOPER: Yes or no? Does that target women when President Obama wants to take billions of dollars out of this?

RUBEN: When President Obama is taking billions of dollars out of this, that’s wrong and will have a disproportionate effect on women.

COOPER: So he’s targeting women.

Cooper might have had a pretty good career as a litigator.  Of course, one can’t always count on having such an unarmed opponent in a battle of wits, either.  This is what happens when demagoguery meets reality.

Cooper occasionally shows an independent streak. Remember when that academic “report” came out tarring everyone in the Tea Party as racists? One of the guys that wrote it went on Cooper’s show and Anderson DESTROYED him. Just shredded the guy on every point. It was amazing to see it.

VegasRick on May 6, 2012 at 7:04 PM

Why are the gay anchors on CNN all of a sudden being journalists?

Money. More correctly, audience share. I’ve been wondering how long they could hang on.

People can watch CNN and get the Democratic / Obama agenda 24/7. Or they can go to Kos, HuffPo, or even the DNC itself and get the exact same thing without having to sit through the Depends® ads. Which do they pick? Every ad you wait through is another thirty seconds of your life you’ll never get back, and that’s a cost, a big one. People do notice, eventually.

The media, in general, have tolerated the audience loss from that effect because they are fully-paid-in believers in the Liberal Myth: that when things settle down everybody will agree with them and come back in the fold. Trouble is, even the people who do agree with them are leaving in droves because they offer nothing that can’t be got cheaper elsewhere. They’ll either change or die, and the country in general will be better off either way. Individuals will resist mightily, including some of the managers, but it’s inevitable.

The other side is the Big Story. News networks make their reputation on coverage of the Big Story, the scandal or photogenic occurrence that allows the “correspondents” to stand in front of the conflagration and pontificate while everybody tunes in. That’s why the Trayvon Martin thing — the media need those race riots to jump their ratings, and have done everything they can to promote them. But all the juicy scandals lately have been Democratic, and their agenda won’t let them report those, which leaves them suffering from scandal deficiency anemia. That, too, will get changed, one way or the other.

WeekendAtBernankes on May 6, 2012 at 6:35 PM

Is this the beginning of a crack in the wall of favoritism for Obama by CNN? Is CNN beginning to realize that Obama may just lose in his re-election bid? Is this a baby step in the direction of abandoning the progressive slant and a slow drift to center politics? Am I delusional?, or am I hoping too hard?

So after 3 years CNN is looking at facts? This reminds me of the arsonist that set the fire that forced him to call the fire department that he evenuatally put so that he could become the hero.
Cynical huh?

I think it all boils down to AC wanting to be on top for a night. He will turn into a wuss next wqeek.

Okay, the interviewer part of me has the first question..Why now?

Anderson may not be the milksop that Olberman is as far as pandering to the Left in the guise of a reporter cum commentator, but it’s gonna take more than this one instance to prove he’s finally gotten some journalistic ethos in his…possession.

I’ll wait for when we get closer to Election night to see if his spine still stays straight.
