    ... Talking Points Memo. :D


    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 far-left website Talking Points Memo to assist her in a heated debate with Romney campaign senior adviser Barbara Comstock (video at link):

    You just can't make this stuff up.

    I hope she cited the place where she got her information from. Since none of it was an origional thought or based on common knowlege gained over a perioud of time, I would say thats plagiarism. Not that TPM would care though. It seems that she just goes to a liberal blog, prints out the page, and pretends that she is a serious journalist who came up with her own questions via her own research from the perspectives of both sides. Only one side/perspective represented there. It's one thing to play devils advocate. It's yet another to be the devil. Did you see how she scrambled, almost as if she was desperate to get the liberal point across, as if she could have her interview pinned if she could juuuust find something in the work of others in an interview she didn't prepare herself. That type of dedication goes beyond bias and journalistic malpractice. Thats advocasy and she might as well be paid for it. She knows theres an election on the line and she might as well be working for the White House. I guess we all know why CNN has it's lowest ratings in over 10 years.

    Um...it is CNN so no surprise they're without any serious professional journalists on staff.

    Wonder how the "there's no liberal bias in the media" crowd will spin this?

    I heard the clips of Sunnunu reaming her out. They had this shouting match over medicare. I swear he tore her several new orifices. It was priceless.

    At one point he actually screamed "why don't you just put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead?"

    :eusa_clap::lol::eusa_clap:

    And it's about time conservative guests go for the throat of liberal douche bags like Soledad who's sole purpose in life is to keep Obama in the White House.

    I put up a thread with a link to the video. We heard the clips on Gallagher and just died laughing.

    Sununu completely loses it on her.

    Sunnunu is perfect for this.He was on Chris Mathews show and Mathews could not bully this guy like he does the other RW guests.
