For the record, no, I did not misspell “journalist,” I merely point out that a) Soledad O’Brien fails to qualify for that term and b) remind you of the disgrace in which “journalists” participated in a leftist campaign to influence the “news” while posing as “objective.”
This is kind of like me running to my Bible to argue with an opponent, only it’s Soledad O’Brien racing to her left-wing talking points.
One thing I will guarantee you – and I DEFY any liberal to show me otherwise – that Soledad O’Brien has NEVER been caught furiously and desperately searching through Rush Limbaugh transcripts to find ammo to try to refute Obama advisers. I DEFY YOU.
Which is another way of my saying that Soledad O’Brien is a dishonest, disgraceful, lying propagandist hack:
Soledad O’Brien Caught Reading Liberal Blog During Heated Debate With Romney Adviser
By Noel Sheppard | August 13, 2012 | 22:31
Can CNN’s Soledad O’Brien make her sources any more apparent than she did Monday night?
While filling in for Anderson Cooper, O’Brien was actually caught on-screen looking at an article from the left-wing website Talking Points Memo to assist her in a heated debate with Romney campaign senior adviser Barbara Comstock (video follows with commentary):
Ali Akbar at Viral Read reported Monday:
During her interview with Virginia House of Delegates Republican member Barbara Comstock, O’Brien became visibly flustered and was actually caught doing finger stress exercises as she attempt [sic] to insert editorial commentary while her guest, a former skilled Republican operative, defended the House GOP budget, designed by Budget Chairman Paul Ryan.
Accidentally, a cameraman captured O’Brien furiously flipping through notes, only to cut out seconds later.
Once blown up, the picture told quite a story:
What she’s reading from is a TPM article titled “The Myth Of Paul Ryan The Bipartisan Leader” published Monday at 6:08 PM only a few hours before this program started.
Mitt Romney has been talking up Rep. Paul Ryan’s bipartisan credentials since he unveiled the congressman as his running mate early Saturday. But the mild-mannered Wisconsinite’s record reveals a near-total absence of Democratic support for his many ambitious proposals, very few of which have won enough support to become law.
Inside the piece was the very quote from Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Or.) that O’Brien read to her guest:
“I did not ‘co-lead a piece of legislation.’ I wrote a policy paper on options for Medicare. Several months after the paper came out I spoke and voted against the Medicare provisions in the Ryan budget. Governor Romney needs to learn you don’t protect seniors by makings things up, and his comments sure won’t help promote real bipartisanship.”
So, a CNN anchor with her own daily program used a far-left website for her show prep before talking to a Republican guest.
Do you need any more evidence of just how far to the left the self-described “most trusted name in news” is or why its ratings continue to tank?
Bravo, Ali! Bravo!
Amusingly enough, O’Brien got some truth to power today when Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu told her she ought to “put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead.” One wonders what he’d have said had he seen the photos above!
Meanwhile, the anchor Soledad O’Brien was substituting for just came out of the closet as a homosexual – which means that he is statistically almost CERTAINLY a raging liberal.
For the record, Anderson Cooper’s “fiance” just got caught french-kissing another man (don’t click on this without a barf pale because it contains close-ups of said homosexual french-kissing) to further prove the fact that homosexuality means an out-of-control addiction to depraved sex with any man who will do whatever the disgusting hell that homosexual men do for each other. Which is another way of saying that homosexual men don’t want marriage or monogamy; homosexual men want to force people like me to morally validate their depraved “lifestyle.” But I digress.
If you wonder why CNN is having the worst ratings in twenty freaking years, it is because CNN is a dishonest and disgraced bunch of propagandists and average people KNOW it is a network of dishonest and disgraced propagandists. But like all fools, CNN is unable to recognize its problem and therefore concludes, “We’re not doing well because we have failed to worship our Dear Leader enough.”
You don’t have enough tinfoil on your helmets, either.
Yesterday I was at the Veterans Administration hospital and couldn’t help but get into an argument with a liberal who stated that nothing I said was valid because I got it from Fox News. In doing this, realize, he refused to make the argument about the actual facts and instead made the argument all about Fox News after I had pointed out the fact that tax cuts increase revenues; they have ALWAYS increased revenues. He didn’t want the conversation to be about facts; he wanted the conversation to be about his demagoguery. Aside from that bait and switch, number one, he didn’t have a CLUE where I got my facts from; and number two his accusation is the epitome of one of the most pathetic fallacies in all of logic (you cannot refute an argument by demonizing the source – if Adolf Hitler were to say it was raining only a fool would argue that if Adolf Hitler said that it was raining it therefore could not possibly be raining). When I pointed that fact of logic out and asked him where he got his news from, he ignored my question and said that “everybody knows that Fox News is propaganda.” So we went from mindless demagoguery to even more mindless demagoguery. I asked him to give me an example of Fox News spreading propaganda and he said “Sean Hannity.” I pointed out that Sean Hannity was a person’s name, not an example of propaganda and asked him to give me one example of Fox News spreading propaganda. This time he said, “Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.” So that’s two people’s names and zero examples of Fox News spreading propaganda. I asked him if he’d ever heard of Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow or Chris Matthews or Andrea Mitchell (and now add Soledad O’Brien). And pointed out that by his own stupid standard I just gave him twice as many examples of liberal propaganda as he’d given me conservative propaganda.
I didn’t bother to point out that “Fox News” – like many other news channels – consists of both NEWS and OPINION. And the fact that Sean Hannity is an OPINION guy has nothing to do with the NEWS of Fox News. I didn’t bother to point out to him that Fox News does a better job of keeping their opinion and news sections SEPARATE than just about any other network – as Andrea Mitchell and NBC just proved with her highly slanted op-ed commentary. You DON’T see the journalists in the Fox News NEWS side pulling that kind of crap out of their butts.
I didn’t point out that Fox News has consistently rated as either THE most balanced or the second most balanced news network of all in study after study. Fox News has NUMEROUS liberals on their network to provide that balance: people such as Geraldo Rivera, Tamara Holder, Alan Colmes, Julian Epstein, Ellis Henican, Leslie Marshall, Juan Williams, Marc Lamont Hill, Susan Estrich, Ellen Ratner, Bob Beckel, Michael Brown, Joe Trippi and Kirsten Powers among many others. And in fact I defy liberals to find a news network that has as many conservatives on their payroll as Fox News has liberals. The fact of the matter is that critics don’t hate Fox News because it’s NOT the most balanced; they hate Fox News because it IS the most balanced and allows a point of view to be aired that they hate irregardless of the fact that they allow BOTH sides to be heard. I still vividly recall the debate I had with a different man who said that presenting the conservative viewpoint was actually inherently biased because it was tantamount to giving the viewpoint that the earth was flat credibility; such that the conservative viewpoint should be suppressed from news coverage. And I said that was spoken like a true goose-stepping Nazi.
Anyway, I didn’t bother to do those two things because it was about this point in the argument that I realized that I was arguing with a genuine fool. And it is a waste of time to argue with a fool. Proverbs 26:4-5 teaches that we should refute fools so that other people realize that they are fools, but not waste too much time with fools lest those people begin to think we are fools, too.
I included the above story: 1) because it seriously pissed me off; and 2) as an example of just how inoculated much of our culture has become against the truth. This is no longer a nation of truth and facts and reality; it is a nation of demagoguery and bias and propaganda.
In the aftermath of Joe Biden literally going before an audience that was primarily black and telling them that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will put you people in chains, we can just watch the same media defend Team Obama and recognize the hell these propagandists would have poured on Team Romney for using such a blatantly racist attack to see that America is drowning in propaganda. And media propaganda is what will ultimately cause the death of this nation.
