The CNN Reporter Just Couldn’t Stand the Opposing Views

In the seven years or so since Fox News came on the scene in a real big way, the back and forth about which station is conservative and which is liberal has become redundant, and it’s rare that examples are interesting, but an email from Our Country Deserves Better PAC highlights a telling scene.
Here is CNN’s Susan Roesgen hectoring participants in a tea party crowd in Chicago. A sign likening President Obama to Hitler was the catalyst, but she then goes on to argue heatedly with a man whose statement had more to do with government principles than political rhetoric. Of course, during the previous president’s term, she apparently thought it a splashy of levity that somebody in a Bush-Hitler-Satan mask made an appearance at a rally involving Catholic school girls.
My favorite part is in the first video, when she argues against the statement that President Lincoln believed in freedom from oppressive taxation by referencing the large amount of stimulus money recently apportioned for Lincoln’s home state.

I took a few seconds to let the Communist News Network know my feelings on this particular incident.

A case of the reporter becoming the story instead of reporting on the story.
Not exactly the epitome of profesionalism. She should get a job as a commentator and leave the news reporting to someone else.

Sometimes, just shutting up and letting the image speak for itself is more effective reporting.
