Well, knock me over with a feather! Who would’ve thunk that CNN, that bastion of unbiased journalism, would have taken sides in the ’08 presidential race? /sarcasm off
You know, Soledad O’Bamarien “rigging a post-debate poll result right in front of your eyes” is pretty darned blatant, even for the MSM.
As Glenn Reynolds notes, “It was in the script — the show of hands was irrelevant.”
Check out the still-frames of the video over at HotAir and count for yourself. It really puts it into perspective, when you can take the time to really look at how many hands are up, when each option is asked. Maybe Soledad needs something like that too, because real life moves too fast for her?
Okay. Like AllahP notes, “Apparently there were 32 people in the group, meaning at least a few are out of frame. Maybe they all broke blue?”
As the Creative Minority Report says, “Hey, how about a roll call, Soledad? Now to my eye, it looks pretty evenly split. I counted 12 for Biden and 11 for Palin. But take a look for yourself.”
Megan McArdle doesn’t seem to appreciate the impression that Soledad’s pathetic counting leaves with viewers. 😆
I’m sure Michelle O. is not “dissatisfied” with Soledad’s and the rest of the MSM’s efforts for The One‘s campaign.
Let’s face it. Sarah Palin just performed too well for the MSM’s liking last week AND she is taking their candidate to task over his relationship with an unrepentant domestic terrorist (Now, Obama claims ignorance), won’t apologize for it, and they are going to do their part to tear her down. Crowds on the campaign trail want her to “tell people about the real Barack Obama,” even in California.
This isn’t the first or the last we will see out of the MSM carrying water for the DNC and Obama this election cycle. We already knew going into the only VP debate that the moderator was in the tank for Obama. And, remember Chris Matthews calling Sarah Palin “a dolt?”
Well, now, Harry Smith of The Early Show isn’t pleased either and feels compelled to wag his finger at the McCain/Palin campaign. Keith Olbermann even injects his P.D.S. into football commentary. Oh. Don’t worry. It’s not just football. It’s in baseball too.
Barbara Walters, the washed up MS hack and now-host of The View, had to inject her cheap shot today by referring to Gov. Palin and her baby, Trig, who Walters says “bothered her” by being present at the debate last week. Liz Trotta felt compelled to dehumanize Trig by calling him “it” on FNC on Sunday. 🙄
Evan Thomas of Newsweek is doing his part too. Jon Meacham of Newsweek intimates that Palin is “too much a commoner and too stupid to be allowed to become vice president of the United States of America.” Check out the Oct. 13th cover:
“She’s one of the folks (And that’s the problem)?” Yes. Heaven forbid that we actually have someone in office to whom we can relate. Perish the thought! 🙄
Check out the Oct. 13th coverstory of Newsweek.
Let’s just call the MSM what they really are – tools. You decide which kind they are. 😉
Maybe Dr. Helen could help them out with their P.D.S.?
