CNN - The Faces of Death of news
 
2013-04-18 02:55:00 PM  

Civil_War2_Time: I'm watching baseball, but flipping around during the commercials. I stumbled upon one of CNN's reporters who said (while interviewing a Bostonian) that he knows what it's like to be from a similar area. "I'm from Philadelphia, and it is Anglo and Irish-Catholic there, too."

I will probably have black-eyes from facepalming so hard tomorrow. About 15 minutes ago if anyone has it on DVR.


That needs to be uploaded. Almost on the same level as Wolf Blitzer's "So poor, so black" comment from Katrina.

falcon176: of course the liberals are giving CNN a free pass if this was Fox News it'd be way worse


What liberals are giving them a free pass? Jon Stewart is supposedly a liberal, and this thread links to a video where he gives them anything but a "free pass."

Fark is full of liberals, and, last time I checked there were over 1500 comments ridiculing CNN in that "suspect arrested" thread alone.

If CNN was a farker, all their posts would read, "Boobies!"

JonnyBGoode: I thought Fox was the news Liberals were supposed to hate. Now I'm confused.


Its probably because your one of those stupid Lie-berals who know nothing but what CNN spews, amirite?

cwheelie: I'd rather watch a rerun of this instead of ESPN these days.

I am glad to see that someone watched this show other than myself.  If you watch The Newsroom on HBO, there are several similarities.  Big fan of both.

Stuck at my tea party sister's house, Fox news blasting and right there with CNN for WTF? remarks-I've
seen them interview 3 'experts' ( plus Mark Furman, the LAPD ass who planted evidence at the O.J. murder scene and is a regular 'expert') who refuse to be led into propping up their delusional speculation. Fun to see them back peddle and cut to commercial! LOL!

d23:

I am not sure I would care about Fox's slant if their coverage was not slanted.  Facts aren't supposed to go away if you close your eyes and say "You're not there! You're not there!" which seems to be what Fox does every day now.


Slanted away from your skewed perception perhaps.  There's opinion on every news outlet these days.  Somtimes it manifests itself in via the host of an hour long segment, like Sean Hannity, sometimes it manifests itself in every  possible article, like on CNN.  Show me any article on CNN or any news story from the AP that's got even a bit of political component, and I'll show you the bias.

It's funny to me that liberals are so used to not seeing anything negative about their politicians or ideologies, that when a fact-based story comes along that casts them in a negative light, they instantly believe that its 'bias', instead of accepting the fact that perhaps their candidate, elected official, or ideology MIGHT ACTUALLY BE FLAWED.

NO ONE CARES THAT YOU WERE 17 SECONDS AHEAD OF THE OTHER MAJOR NEWS NETWORKS IN ANNOUNCING SOMETHING!!!!

We want, nay...demand  ACCURATE information, none of this bullshiat "exclusive" crap works anymore.  Accuracy is key here, not misinformation, not speculation, not useless and unfounded speculation.

Pisses me off to no end, and it is dangerous.  F*cking idiots!

I too am genuinely shocked.  If it were me being speculated about so heavily as these two are/were by the internet, I would not leave my house, and I would call my local police department/local FBI office and have them exonerate me ASAP.  That being said, there is still going to be some idiot who goes after these two.

You can tell that Obama and crew put the screws down on the media in general, CNN in particular.  I wasn't surprised to see every news organization this morning reporting an obvious missile strike as a "Fertilizer Factory Fire."  Just watch - tomorrow, there will be a massive pipeline fire in South Korea.  Followed by a seismic event on the island of Guam.  At that point, Mr. Obama is going to have to order another civilian attack.  Don't believe me?  Then why is it that just a few hours before the first false flag operation in Boston, we were on the verge of war with North Korea?  A war that Obama cannot afford to wage either financially or politically.  He's pulling the puppet strings and all you children are clapping with delight.  Well, just wait, maybe next week it'll be your legs finishing the race before the rest of you.

In theory he could be a naturalized American. We did almost 700,000 of them last year.
I work with three women who were naturalized 25 or more years ago, and their accents are about the same as his or worse.

I would get banned if I showed the gore that Alarma shows every night at 9pm.

Usually they start with a drunk driver dead story (trying to teach our Latino folk not to drink and drive) , then a few narcotrafica dead people stories, some story about some kind of mutant (animal, person or both), a science story (they love robots in Mexico), a "car fight" or wreck dash cam video, a good guts and gore story, a sexy lady with thick thighs story (last night was super thin models that freaked me out) and then finish off with some strange religious story (last night was the image of Virgin Mary on the bottom of a pan).

Right.  When the media doesn't tell you what you want to hear, it's because they're biased.

Well, you're partly right, the media is biased.  It's biased towards money, and for the most part, it's willing to tell you whatever you want to hear as long as you watch those ads.  That's why the results of the 2012 election were so surprising to conservatives and only conservatives: because they rejected almost every media report on the election based in objective reality and instead asked their media to tell them comforting lies.

Oh yeah, and conservatives lost any right they had to claim victimhood in media  bias when the MSM spent 6 years repeating as fact an insane and infantile conspiracy theory about the president's birthplace that was entertained SOLELY by white supremacists.

2013-04-18 04:26:08 PM  
They all do this.  Instead of reporting what is true, they report as much heresay and video they can so they can be FIRST.  It's not about being true anymore, it's about being first.  This exactly why there are all these conspiracy theory lunatics who think the Newtown shootings were staged.  They are going off all the conflicting and untrue crap that came out immediately afterward.
