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.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
