CNN's Susan Roesgen, an Obama-Pelosi apologist, attempts to brand the tea parties as anti-government, anti-Obama, anti-CNN
CNN's Susan Roesgen is dripping with contempt for Chicago's Tea Party protesters. Here is how she begins her "report": "This is a Party for Obama bashers." Here is how her "report" ends: "I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network FOX. And since I can't really hear much more, and I think this is not really family viewing, I'll toss it back to you Kyra."
Any way you slice it, this clip has to be seen to be believed.
CNN's first interviewee is a man who does not know why Obama is a fascist but can't stop repeating that he is. The second interviewee is a man who, once recognized as a non-fringe element, gets the mic taken away so Roesgen can defend Obama.
Bottom line: This segment is a time capsule. Mark it under "CNN's unapologetic bias."
