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.

Just to be clear, are all remarks disagreeing with gay marriage classified as “homophobic”?

Cindy Munford on July 29, 2012 at 1:14 PM

Speaking of stupid people, see Obama

The comment was factual, but it still strikes Cattaneo as a coded message to black people that Obama is on their side. “A lot of people I talk to can’t understand why a man who’s half-white and half-black is so anti-white.”

This April, in a poll by the National Journal and the University of Phoenix, 33 percent felt race relations were getting better, 23 percent said they were getting worse, and 42 percent said they were staying about the same.

So where are we now?

Four years after Obama smashed the nation’s highest racial barrier, and less than four months before America will decide whether he deserves a second term, the nation is uncertain about the meaning of a black president.

Recently, Obama was asked in a Rolling Stone magazine interview if race relations were any different than when he took office.

I never bought into the notion,” Obama said, “that by electing me, somehow we were entering into a postracial period.”

Heh, the oaf will have set race-relations back by 50 years, as I said when he ran.

Schadenfreude on July 29, 2012 at 1:15 PM

The only comment that inthemiddle made that was truly out of line was the heart attack one. The rest are no worse than what some say here every day about the other side or gays or anyone they don’t like. The “in your face” kind of comments are not only made by the leftists.

If you are asked a question, you generally don’t answer, I assume because you are just a stupid leftist troll trying to cause trouble rather than argue for your point of view. Also, you are a fine one to talk about Nazi style chilling tactics when you agree that people should have no right to free speech or freedom of religion if they don’t agree with your creepy, insane views.

This is the definition of a controversy now in America. Sarah Palin stopping by a fast food restaurant, ordering a meal and tweeting “Great business!”

Meanwhile our President’s administration is under investigation for trafficking guns into Mexico, putting them knowingly into the hands of drug lords and murderers with the hopes that crime would increase so they could use the increase in crime they created as justification for new gun laws here at home. Because there just wasn’t enough crime so Obama’s administration had to go out and make the crime happen. Yeah.. but Sarah Palin stopped by and bought some chicken sandwiches at a restaurant that supports traditional marriage. Our President is blowing up dams, shutting down coal fired electric plants, seizing American businesses, destroying our economy, attacking private business, hiding his birth certificate, hiding his college records, attacking our traditional allies, embracing America’s traditional enemies, attacking veterans, pro-lifers and libertarians as possible terrorist suspects, funnels money into funny green energy companies that go bankrupt, doesn’t have a clue about how many states there are in America and yet… here is the scandal of the day. Chick-fil-A’s owners are Christian and support traditional marriage and Sarah Palin stopped by one and ordered some food with her husband.

It’s a proud day in America.

KOOLAID2 on July 29, 2012 at 2:14 PM

I direct news, and the anchors have absolutely nothing to do with RFC (return from commercial) or Bump music. They are glorified readers.

In my experience, the decision rests with one of two people: The director or the producer. Each have a script, and know what stories are ahead. Usually, one of the two will give the audio engineer a “heads-up” regarding the Bumper. “Hey we’ll be bumping a story about a granny that took a class at a racing school” – and the audio engineer might be told to play “Speed Racer” music, or given the freedom to make a similar-type musical selection. But in most instances the engineer won’t have any knowledge of Bump or RFC content – and will rely on input/direction from the director or producer.

As a director, I’d be reassigned the overnights for suggesting that sort of music.

CNN needs to act on this sort of infraction – as it does nothing but give them a black eye.

Sure many said that it was because the American people would never accept it but they held that position for 30 years. Funny how now if you so much as whisper on some outta the way radio station that you support traditional marriage…

Gwillie on July 29, 2012 at 2:16 PM

This is why it’s so amazing when conservatives win elections.

Democrats simply announce they are running and the media will gently carry them through.

Republicans have to fight against the dishonest democrat, their dishonest campaign staff, their dishonest base, their dishonest entities (like acorn and corrupt unions) who are funded with tax payer dollars from Republicans, the dishonest liberal TV talk shows and the dishonest lame stream media.

I really don’t see America putting up with this too much longer. It’s becoming very difficult to tolerate the intolerant.

It’s also hate speech.

You either love gays and all they stand for or you hate them.

There is no gray area.

Why do they believe this?

Because they hate you.

Rod on July 29, 2012 at 2:17 PM

To say nothing of the jobs numbers, the unemployment numbers, the banking regulations, the national debt, the borrowing, the assault on free speech with things like Attack Watch, the assault on family farms, the monitoring of social websites, attacking GOP donors, raiding Gibson guitar. I was remembering some of the early stuff that we’ve probably forgotten, like.. the cash for klunkers thing. I remember how if you wanted to apply for the cash you had to access the government website and basically agree that your PC would then become “government property. Anyone remember that? Or attempting to control spilled milk at dairy farms the same as spilled toxic waste. The list is long here. But forget all of that… Sarah Palin stopped by a fast food restaurant and ordered chicken sandwiches at a business owned by Christians who believe in traditional marriage.

It only has legs because it’s being coordinated with democrats and the media in an election year to create “boogey men” to distract from legitimate discussions about Obama’s miserable failure on the Economy, his drug running operation and the rampant corruption within in his administration.

Liberals are not smart to say “hey, wait a second…what the heck is this about?” They march along like sheep, taking their orders and in many cases, getting paid to do so.

In other words, you find it acceptable to behave as offensively as possible, in order to upset and “get a rise out of” people who simply want to eat a meal with their family and be left in peace?
I suppose, then, that you would find it at least as acceptable for a pack of heterosexuals to descend en masse on a bar in Boys’ Town in Chicago and blatantly display their sexual preferences in order to disrupt the patrons’ evening; and “get a rise out of them”> Would that be a fair assumption?

Did it ever occur to you – or people like you – that there is, really, ‘a time and a place for things’? And that behaving like a pack of animals in heat and trying to ‘anger’ people may not be the best way to win people to your side of the argument?

And, btw – why do you think that the mere sight of two homosexuals kissing will drive “normal” people to heights of anger? Do you consider homosexual behavior to be disgusting? Why are you a homophobe? Do you hate homosexuals? Are you disgusted by them? Why can’t you tolerate homosexuals?

Got that in my email today:

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon on 04.28.2010.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.

Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

I am not a Palinista but that song actually lionizes women like her. Now if it was meant to be an insult, the producer or whomever is the fool.

She doesn’t have a fake “orange” tan, small dog, protruding breasts,OR TRAVEL IN A PACK WITH TWO OR THREE OTHER WOMEN.

Sarah actually resembles the lady in front of the political podium and sure is ambitious.

Only the title makes it a problem but CNN probably knows how superficial their audience is.

was this unintentional? please!! if this were the first time something like that has happened, i’d ignore it, but this happens time and time and time again! those libs are just so immature; they really think it’s cute and funny to play a song named “stupid
girl” before starting a segment on palin.

no wonder cnn is doing so terribly…

American Dream 246 on July 29, 2012 at 3:55 PM

Well put and very true.

It’s the reason that, if he is re-elected, it’s over – - not specifically because of “him” personally but because the transformation of our citizenry into a collective of government dependents lacking any personal responsibility and independent thought is complete. The American dream will be dead.

From 50 years ago:

“…. Nikita Khrushchev (Premier of Russia) said in reference to (the USA and) capitalism, “Мы вас похороним!” (My vas pokhoronim!), translated to “We will bury you”. This phrase, ambiguous both in the English language and in the Russian language, was interpreted in several ways. Later, he would refer back to the comment and state, “I once got in trouble for saying, ‘We will bury you’. Of course, we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you”.

Some examples would be nice.

But I see Schick challenged you on your claim and so you ran off.

Del Dolemonte on July 29, 2012 at 5:24 PM

And we’re surprised by this from CNN because…? Liberals have no argument so they have to resort to name calling and junior high school humor. SOP for them.

College Prof on July 29, 2012 at 5:27 PM

I can’t believe this Chick-Fil-A thing has had the legs it has had…….baffling….

libfreeordie on July 29, 2012 at 1:48 PM

.
Isn’t it obvious ?

This whole thing was contrived by the Chik-Fil-A marketing dept.

They conspired with some gays to create this false-controversy about the CEO’s religious beliefs, and voila . . . . . sales are through the roof !
.
Well, YOU come up with a better explanation.

Yeah ‘eastside, the Hotair archives are available to anyone and everyone who feels like “digging” for the evidence.

And CNN cannot understand why their ratings are in the dumpster. Amazing!

And I’m taking several gay couples there on Friday for the kiss-in. We hope to find the most conservative looking families to make sure they get the best views!

itsspideyman on July 29, 2012 at 7:23 PM

This is why CNN needs “new thinking.”

inthemiddle on July 28, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Yes, I’m sure that groveling like animals in heat will make them see you in a brand new light. But then maybe there are more Christian eyes that need to be awakened to the level of sin being pushed in this world. I’m sure you will awaken many people to the conservative cause by acting this way in front of their families. Thank you for vowing to help us out.

What’s sad is when people are so sunk in sin that they feel it is their right to behave like beasts. Grow up and stop letting bodily organs other than your brain define who you are, and who you can become. THAT is why the current homosexuality movement is disgusting… because it dehumanizes people and lowers them to the status of animals.

I will continue to pray for you.

Those who are confident in themselves and their views, and respectful of others, usually take a live-and-let live attitude towards people with different opinions. The fact that someone else thinks differently is not a threat.

What does it say about people who are so insecure about their own beliefs that they cannot tolerate anyone with a different opinion? The people who must say “Look at me! Look at me! Look at me! I demand your respect!” Do they really think a pathetic display of their insecurity will earn the respect they crave, or change minds towards their position?

Putting on a spectacle just looks like a desperate attempt to convince themselves that their own beliefs are worthy. People who are truly confident don’t seek approval from others or need to shove their beliefs into the faces of those who disagree.

These anchors are really little more than actors in many cases, coming in to work and reading whatever shows up on the teleprompter.

Kind of like the president?
Now, I know someone beat me to it, but it was too funny to not repeat it.
I’m hoping for someone to pull a Ron Burgandy on president dumb dumb before he’s evicted in November.

The attached is from a commenter at Hope n’ Change web site:

The issue isn’t about “marriage”. Never was. It’s about mainstreaming a type of aberrant human behavior and forcing the nation to not just accept its existence, but embrace it as “good”. To achieve that end, the militant gay activists have pushed to have any open expression against homosexual behavior classified as hate or hate speech. Churches and the Christian teaching against homosexual behavior are specifically targeted. Even speaking in favor of traditional marriage without mentioning homosexuality is hate speech and must be suppressed. In this country anything goes…except Christianity apparently. Slowly but surely biblical belief (in many areas) is being criminalized. Pastors are being silenced and churches are threatened with loss of their tax-exempt status. As always, when society starts to slide into the pit, I wonder…what next? Don’t kid yourself, Stilton. When gay marriage is forced upon us, there will be a “next”. And it may be something even further than you can tolerate. But by then who will be left to stand with you?
