CNN plays “Stupid Girls” bumper over Palin Story

posted at 11:01 am on July 29, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Coming out of a commercial break at 8:40 AM eastern time today, during Randi Kaye’s shift on CNN, the network “unexpectedly” chose to play the refrain from the song “Stupid Girls” by the pop singer Pink going into a story about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The two word refrain repeated over and over as the camera panned past Ms. Kaye and faded into a picture of Palin visiting a Chic-fil-A restaurant. The host then went on to a fairly stock story about the recent Chic-fil-A brouhaha, including Palin’s visit, with no reference to the introductory tune.

Palin at Chic-fil-A

For the record, it’s my understanding that the hosts of these shows on the 24 hour cable news channels generally have nothing to do with the selection of the bumper music. That’s usually handled by the production staff, and a specific individual is frequently assigned to do nothing but select the musical cuts. CNN can – and probably will – easily say that it was all a coincidence and it might be hard to prove otherwise. (EDIT: See update.)

This is, however, kind of reminiscent of that rapidly exploding moment when the house band on Jimmy Fallon’s show played a derogatory song clip as then presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was coming on stage. Fallon later had to apologize. It makes one wonder if these networks ever manage to learn anything from the past.

After chatting with Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters about it, he came up with the video, which follows.

UPDATE: (Jazz) There seems to be some confusion over the portion where I mention that the anchor generally doesn’t pick the bumper music. This was not intended as any sort of indicator that malice aforethought was ruled out. Simply saying that if it was intentional, it was mostly likely pulled off by the producers and the crew. These anchors are really little more than actors in many cases, coming in to work and reading whatever shows up on the teleprompter.

Romney doesn’t need to weigh in on this issue, but if he does, it should be from a free speech and pro-small-business perspective. Everyone who cares knows that Romney is against gay marriage just like everyone always knew Obama was for it and lying. Romney doesn’t need to give the left another flag to rally around over a tertiary issue like gay marriage. Focus on the economy. Americans can take care of the idiot fringe.

Palin shouldnt back down and she wont. Chik fil et is a freedom of speech issue. Politicians shouldnt cherry pick which private businesses they allow or dont based on the owners religious values. Palin is a Christian why shouldnt she stand up for her own beliefs? Im guessing if the chik fil et issue is polled the majority wont side with Rahm Emanuel. Whatever critusm comes her way she can more than handle it. I suppose since Im a christian I wont be welcomed in Boston or Chicago either.

As for CNN they just cant help themselves. They think they are so much smarter than those of us in flyover country.

KOOLAID2 on July 29, 2012 at 11:25 AM

I wonder if the palin hater ever stopped to think how one woman could have every negative sterotypical female charactertic. I mean let’s see Palin is accused of being a

diva
ditz
golddigger/in it for the money
whore
nuts
hormornal
weak/quitter
emotional/unable to handle stress

any rational person would look at that and logically think wait a minute. there is no female on the earth that has all of those characterisics wrapped into one. Isn’t it amazing that Palin has everyone of them. It boggles the mind that people would be so stupid as to fall for this but post after post and stroy after story its repeated and like sheep people believe. Sometimes you have to take a step back and understand how your “betters” are playing with your freakign mind. This story about CNN explains how they do it for any sane rational person that wants to see the truth. There is no way Palin can havee every negative female character flaw therefore the simply answer is she has none of them.

“All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true within itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”

CNN is full of leftist creeps that don’t resonate with anyone except guttersnipes. See Soledad O’Brien, former Client #9 show, etc.

If CNN really wanted to improve their ratings they would try and appeal to conservatives since the market is saturated with liberal programming, NPR,MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, to name a few.

But I think CNN would rather go bankrupt than show respect for conservatives.

The clip they played of Cheney on ABC This Week was short. He said when picking a VP, there is a Big list and a short list. There is only one priority to be on the short list and that’s whether the person is capable of being President. He said he likes Palin and has met her but she didn’t pass this test.

So, what’s going to happen to the sophomoric morons that decided to play “Stupid Girls” as an intro to a piece on Gov. Palin? Probably nothing because you’re all sitting there snickering like middle-schoolers on a bus hectoring a bus monitor. You people are low. I’m sure Anderson Cooper (you know… the guy who helped introduce the term “teabagger” to America while snickering about it) is laughing loudest. What garbage your network has become.

Is that the same Mr. cheney that has been in the DC area and had his finger in the power highways for the last 40 odd years? Now I don’t have a problem with his character or love of country. He has done some good works for the country. But he is a standing member of the permenant political class that has gotten us into $16 trillion debt. Under Mr. Chenny/Bush the country went a further $5 trillion in debt. Under him the USA was bogged down in 2 of the longest running wars the nation has ever had. longer than WW2 and ww1 combined. With no clear cut victory on either and one passed along to the next CiC who has fumbled it even more than Bush and Chenny did. No, Palin represents new blood and Mr. chenny represents the old blood that got us into the circumstances we find ourselves in. We tried the Mr. Cheney approach to government and we got one of the worse recessions since the great depression. To these people not have an ounce of shame for the cliff they have driven America upon?

It would be like Fox bumping into a story of President Obama with a rap song (one with a lot of references to drugs and crimes)

many times the person doing the crime will be the first to accuse others of doing it.

Your words will fall on deaf ears here. Haven’t you remembered? Anybody But Obama. They will take Jerry Sandusky over Obama if possible.

Actually, your words fall on deaf ears here, not unseen’s. You are tolerated and contended with here.

Gov. Palin’s going to have a big day, according to Twitchy, VP Cheney said on ABC that her choice for McCain VP was a mistake. Nothing personal but too little experience. Apparently the press is eating it up with a spoon, Mr. Cheney has never been this popular.

Cindy Munford on July 29, 2012 at 11:11 AM

Didn’t see it, but it’s a shame that Cheney didn’t quickly interject that she was more experienced than the guy we elected as president.

You cannot tell me that Obama, jacking off in the Senate for 18 months, developed any amount of expertise. At least with Palin, there was a background of executive experience and extensive experience with energy policy and, I daresay, environmental policy. What did Obama do? Have Lugar hold his hand while they supported an uncontroversial nuclear weapons treaty? Initially support legislation only to vote against it–Fannie and Freddie reform.

Obama is REASON 1 for termination affirmative axtion. Without his Ivy League credentials, he’d still be sitting in Jeremiah Wright’s pews.

yes but doesn’t mean they still do not need to be said.

This New Republican Party whines too much man! Palin will forever be seen as dumb and stupid. That is a reality which may or may not be fair. Get over it.

Uppereastside on July 29, 2012 at 11:51 AM

LOL! They’re taking me out of context! They talk about me like I’m a dog! I don’t look like everyone else on the money! I inherited this mess and I didn’t know a freakin thing about it until after the inauguration! You complaining about my negative campaign is making people think I’m campaigning negatively! I could go on ALL day, you stupid, insane liberal.

It’s not as if Palin accused the country she was visiting of being unable to handle the world games or something…..

More to come apparently. I am sure that he was very kind and complimentary but I am also sure that that isn’t what will be reported.

Cindy Munford on July 29, 2012 at 12:06 PM

The song is actually about how she doesn’t want to see stupid girls. She wants to see women with ambition and goals in life.

I think Sarah Palin fits exactly into what Pink is saying she wants to see. There’s even a line about what happened to having a woman president.

I would look at this song being played with Palin as a compliment, not a put-down.

The left, especially the women, are just jealous because Palin is beautiful, smart, and has a handsome husband. She’s honorable, unlike the hacks on the left. Really, do we expect anything of the left, other than hate and classless behavior? They have shown themselves to be mindless and hateful people, not the kind of people we want running this country.
