Is CNN Fair?



Commenter Mike D. suggested this would make a good thread, hat tip to him. It's hard to argue with the example Rush gives...that's nothing new.

It would appear Rush is the face and voice of the Republican party.

What do you suppose Rush's approval rating are with the American people?

Many on the left ( as noted on WW ) give Obama poor approval rating for not having a public option in the Health care bill, or for not just supporting Universal Health care for everyone like Canada.
Others on the left are disappointed he is not getting us out of Iraq faster.
Does that mean disappointed left are going to vote for a Republican desaster?

Or not vote at all.

This Rush video is informative and entertaining at the same time. He uses his targets own words. This is why the MSM is sliding in the ratings and Obama is sliding in the polls. Before Rush, who would point these things out? I knew it, but it sure wasn't in the media anywhere. This is the new media. The liberals, unable to control it, hate it for it's success. This is why the liberals long for legislation to control the new media.
If that happens, the second revolution is on.

If Rush is the voice and face of the Republican Party.

Do the math.

Rush is a man with mental health issues and will one day take his own life likely by drug overdose.

I did listen and I'm not impressed by fake journalism by any of the corporate media. They consistently fail as journalist.

All of the American media have followed the lead of Fox to some extent to over sensationalize, hype and caving in to power both corporate and political pressure.
Sometimes it ratings pressure of not reporting a truth knowing it will generate an angery backlash of being anti patroitic, liberal, socialism, anti semitic or prejudice.
Fox makes little effort to hide their bias.

The polls Rush is pressuring CNN and others to concede airtime to are non issues.

Would the earthquake in Haiti, health care reform, Iran's political decent, Current economic crisis, mud slides in Califorina be push aside to give poll numbers that mean nothing at this point.

Obama is using political capital to push change. poll numbers droping should be expected.

Doing nothing wouldl keep poll higher.

"Bwahahahahahahahahah!"

Do you at least pull to the side of the road to let an Emergency vehicle pass?

Heckling seems to be all you want to do.

You have no plan, no Ideas, no vision and no compassion. This could be the Republican platform.

Sarkazein said...

How's this: Obama is in deficit spending mode with his political capital. How could it be? YOU wrote that WE would see how the American people would get behind Obama's political moves, YOU wrote he would be a uniter, YOU wrote he would not over-reach. He should be GAINING political capital, not losing it, IF you were even close in your political prophecies.

For Obama to be in the political condition you projected, EVERYONE would have to ignore his actions, similar to your belief in what we should do about terrorism. You have the wrong conception of what political capital is.

In other words, Bwahahahahahahahahah!

By the way, the Bwahaha I borrowed from "Daughter of Yahweh". I found it quite amusing as A'mous would say.

Liberal POV,

This video is not about Fox News. It's not about Rush Limbaugh. It's not about Haiti. It's not about health care. It's not about Iran.

It's about CNN hammering home, through repetition, the thoughts that CNN wants you and me to think.

I would like to hear your true thoughts, not on the presenter of the material, but on the material itself!

Liberal POV said...

Mike

Do you want to save time and you write what you want me to say, because you will dihonestly rewrite what ever I post to suit your debateing points as you just did as always.

This video, while not about Fox News, demonstrates why Fox is so far in the forefront of news organizations. The ratings show that even liberals watch Fox to get balanced coverage on an issue instead of propaganda as per CNN.
