CNN = Liberal Bias

14 posts in this topic

I've been trying to keep an open mind about CNN's coverage of the election, but after watching their coverage of both conventions there is do doubt they are completely in the tank for Obama. They are not even trying to hide it anymore.

If you think CNN is bad, don't and I repeat, don't flip over to MSNBC.

The reporter did what he was supposed to do. He asked a provocative question and got a forceful and detailed response, and that response eloquently put forth the Republican position.

I'm not saying CNN and MSNBC don't have a liberal bias (I think some of their anchors in particular do), I'm just saying you can't prove that point by the reporter's question.

The vast majority of people in this world won't fair well debating with Gingrich. He's a bulldog to the Nth degree. The interesting thing there is that he as Steve pointed out, forcefully answered the question and left the reporter with nothing left to say. would have been curious to watch Olberman's boys try to address those "openings" that Newt left them...

Media bias blah blah liberal blah blah journalists blah blah.

Jeez, if you don't like objective reporting go back to rightwingnuts.com. Just because CNN doesn't fall over Palin & McCain & actually asks some relevant questions, they're biased. Get real.

I don't think most people on this forum would recognize media bias if someone stuck it up their noses. smile

I would be fine with the question from the MSNBC reporter, if they asked the exact same questions of Obama and the democratic party, but they do not.

Even people outside of the republican / conservative party are sick and tired of the bias. Hillary supports are very upset on how CNN and MSNBC treated Hillary and give his Barack Apollo Obama a free pass.

I has been well documented that the majority of tv and print media is biased towards the liberal, democratic party. this is the reason why conservative talk radio is so popular, and the liberal media has been trying hard the to shut it down.

Funny though how every lefty seems to think Fox is biased but somehow CNN,CBS,NBC,MSNCB and the rest are not. The bias is VERY obvious to me. And is quite well documented on the web, look it up.

I make it a point to tune into MSNBC and CNN for their commentary after major speeches. Its always entertaining to watch the likes of Olbermann, Matthews, Candy Crowley, Anderson Cooper etal. The funny thing is that half the time it appears they have no clue how silly they look. Or maybe the money is worth looking silly over....

Actually Duff I really enjoy Brit Hume's show and his panel of "Fox Contributors All". Talk about a diverse group - and unlike Hannity and Colmes the Hume group isn't busy trying to shout one another down.

JPR.... I have to actually do some searching for any of the so-called news networks, they have been blocked on the Duffman DirecTV guide. I'm suprised CNN is even covering the convention, what, with the whole crew searching for a little girl in FL for the past two months. crazy

My son programmed the remote for our Dish Network, and created a "DAD LIST" for me. I guess I'm pretty predictable, as he nailed it down pretty well.

Sports, news, the channels that have the weekend cowboy movies.

Honestly Jackpine, after trading friendly jabs between us for the last few years, I think we could both guess what each others guides look like. wink

Picked up a kayak paddle last night, going to try and go irk some paddling purists after work in my canoe. laugh Did you ever try some of that deep water trolling? I'm going to give it a go next weekend with some of my salmon rigs, the target will be inland lakers, but it will be interesting to see if anything else is chasing those schools of baitfish around.

A friend of mine picked himself a superlight carbon kayak paddle (thing weighs just over a pound) for his Souris 16, and that thing goes like heck. He's got it set up with a Spring Creek seat/yoke in the center, and that tub will keep up with two normal paddlers no problemo. Heck with the purists, go with what works for you.

Our trolling was curtailed early due to high winds, but we did get a mixed bag in the roughly 2 hours we played around. Best bait was a #7 silver rapala.

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
