According to OneNewsNow.com, "A conservative media watchdog organization says CNN has once again demonstrated its liberal bias in its coverage of a recent "TEA party" event in Chicago.
On Wednesday, CNN correspondent Susan Roesgen was interviewing a Chicago TEA party ("Taxed Enough Already") participant when she evidently did not approve of what he was saying about President Obama's tax policies, talked over him as he responded to her question, and began to editorialize.
Roesgen: "I think you get the general tenor of this [rally]. 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."
Kyra Phillips (studio anchor): "Alright. I know Susan Rosegen is having a hard time hearing me, but wow, that is the prime example of what we're following across the country."
Julia Seymour is an assistant editor/analyst for the Business and Media Institute of the Media Research Center (MRC). "It's just awful reporting," she says of CNN's handling of the Chicago rally. "It would be easier to tolerate if CNN had bothered to do the stories leading up to the event. But CNN wasn't even talking about the TEA parties until April 14 -- despite previous protests that had happened in February and two months [of people] organizing these events." Seymour says Roesgen reacted very differently when she covered an anti-Bush protest several years ago. "She was not rude to those protestors," the MRC spokeswoman recalls. "So clearly I think there was more here -- and she has shown herself and her true colors." The MRC analyst remarks that the liberal media has switched from the mode of constantly attacking the administration of George W. Bush to automatically and repeatedly deflecting criticism of government action and undermining the opposition to Barack Obama."
And CNN's anchor Anderson Cooper on April 14, Tuesday night, referenced a vulgar slang term used in the homosexual community to ridicule Republicans involved in the "TEA Party" rallies.
During his AC 360 program, Anderson Cooper made the vulgar remark after CNN senior political analyst David Gergen spoke of the Republican Party being "in disarray."
Gergen: "Republicans have got a way -- they still haven't found their voice, Anderson. They're still -- this happens to a minority party after it's lost a couple of bad elections, but they're searching for their voice."
Cooper: "It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging."
Now, this is what is so disturbing about this term. Wickepedia defines Teabagging as this? Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth or on or around the face (including the top of the head) of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion as in irrumatio. The practice resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea.
Teabagging is also an erotic activity used within the context of BDMand male dominance, with a dominant man teabagging his submissive partner, either a woman or a man, as one variation of facesitting and/or as a means of inflicting erotic humiliation.
Where is the outcry from the media for a well known journalist to make such vulgar statements like this. None. If this was said about a left wing liberal, there would be an outcry. Unfortunately, it just again demonstrates the left wing liberal's attitude for those that are Christians that do not like seeing what is happening to our country and the destruction of our monetary system.
