CNN Activist Reporter Brings Her Pitchfork

ROESGEN: OK, well, Kiran, we'll move on over here. I think you get the general tenor of this. Uh, 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, toss it back to you, Kiran.

Kyra Phillips: I know Susan Roesgen is having a hard time hearing me, but wow. That is the prime example of what we're following across the country there. Susan pointed out everything plain and clear of what she's dealing with.

Amidst criticism leveled at this "activist confronts activist" manner of interview, CNN defends its representative, Susan Roesgen:

"She was doing her job, and called it like she saw it."

Move along, folks...nothing more to see here but media activism.

Yet another shinning moment for CNN. No wonder their ratings are sinking faster than a lead weight. This video, in different clips, is headed towards a half million views on line (in one day). At this rate this time tomorrow it will have more viewers than CNN had live yesterday.

FOXNEWS 3,390,000
MSNBC 1,210,000
CNN 1,070,000

Chuck, are those numbers right? Fox does more than the other three COMBINED?? One would think those other bozos might want to get conservative, QUICK, while they still have some viewers.

WordSmith, I didn't know you were from Nantucket, I lived there many years ago, if you go to Corner Hooper Farm rd. and Trotters Lane you will see the 1 1/2 storey saltbox I built there, still know a few people there.

Lol...well, I've actually never been to Nantucket; my username is just a bit of play on "man from Nantucket" limmericks. Don't know why I chose either "wordsmith" or "nantucket".

She was doing her job alright - her job is to parrot the Liberal line and make sure no dissenting voice is heard without ridicule.

Sadly that is how she sees it. That is one dumb lady.
