CNN’s Soledad O’Brien Caught Once Again Using Liberal Propaganda As Her Reference…. This Time Using “Talking Points Memo” Blog

There is an analogy for watching the legacy media types having their liberal and biased selves exposed while they try to hide it.   It is,… it really is…..,  like watching a naked person fry bacon…

(By Ali Akbar @Viral Read ) CNN’s Soledad O’Brien is no stranger to controversy or rightful journalistic scrutiny. She’s frequently been exposed for reading Wikipedia or talking points on the air, always disparaging a conservative guest on her program.

[Last night] , she was the substitute host for Anderson Cooper, a program that boasts of its reputation for “keeping [politicians] honest.” During her interview with Virginia House of Delegates Republican member Barbara Comstock, O’Brien became visibly flustered and was actually caught doing finger stress exercises as she attempted to insert editorial commentary while her guest, a former skilled Republican operative, defended the House GOP budget, designed by Budget Chairman Paul Ryan.

Accidentally, a cameraman captured O’Brien furiously flipping through notes, only to cut out seconds later. What was she viewing?

Footage proves it was a printed email, talking points and opposition research.

The contents? There was a blog post from Talking Points Memo, the popular liberal blog. She was reading The Myth of Paul Ryan The Bipartisan Leader. She never cited it, but used its contents. In fact, she claimed to be reading a direct statement from Senator Ron Wyden’s (D-OR) office, but was in fact reading this excerpt from the blog:

The Romney campaign’s lone evidence that Ryan is a bipartisan leader amounts to a vague blueprint he co-wrote with Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) late last year that mirrors key elements of his Medicare plan. Wyden voted against Ryan’s budget and said Romney’s characterization of their work was dishonest.

“Governor Romney is talking nonsense. Bipartisanship requires that you not make up the facts,” Wyden’s office said in a statement. “I did not ‘co-lead a piece of legislation.’ I wrote a policy paper on options for Medicare. Several months after the paper came out I spoke and voted against the Medicare provisions in the Ryan budget. Governor Romney needs to learn you don’t protect seniors by makings things up, and his comments sure won’t help promote real bipartisanship.”

In the very same segment where she then interviewed Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, she used no notes, no research, and what are generally accepted as softball questions.  (read more)

    Hypocrite Soledad considers herself black but considers Zimmerman white even though he shares almost the exact multiracial heritage as her. She hosted the inflammatory race-baiting CNN special ‘Beyond Trayvon’ where she mad statements like “I actually get the sense that it’s more like a Rosa Parks case,” she said. “There is this case that is so clearly defined in a lot of people’s minds that it sets the bar for them … people said, ‘if this could happen to Rosa Parks, it could happen to anybody.'”As a journalist, she continued, her role was to “leverage the moment to have a conversation.” She said that she didn’t think Zimmerman would be allowed to walk free much longer.

    She is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, which named her the Journalist of the Year 2010. It is her choice to label herself as she wishes but she fails to extend the same courtesy to George Zimmerman. Her mother is hispanic and black just like Zimmerman’z mother. “My Cuban-born mother is wonderful on this topic. This woman who didn’t teach her children Spanish did teach us pride.”

    “Don’t let them tell you you’re not black,” she tells me. “Don’t let them tell you you’re not Hispanic or not Cuban.” And I don’t. The fact that I work for CNN has fostered my commitment to telling great stories about people of color. CNN, a part of the Time Warner company, lives for news about everything and anyone. In the office, the bosses openly discuss the need for a diverse staff and diverse stories, and each time we draw new viewers, the effort intensifies. There is an active diversity council, aggressive diversity training, regular speeches from the highest officers of the company about how our country is changing and CNN has to be a part of that change. They see the demographics of the future and know they have to look at their hiring and reporting practices so that they appeal to the widest possible audience.

    As CNN saw our growth in African-American viewership, they affirmed a fundamental truth of news coverage — people will watch you if they see themselves in what you report. It doesn’t hurt if the people doing the reporting look like them, too.

    Don’t forget Souldead’s lying about Critical Race Theory back in Mar. She couldn’t leave well enough alone with her lying/stupidity, she kept the lie going for days.

    What was the name of the female Hispanic pundit on the Soledad O’Brien show August 14 arguing against pundit Roland Martin regarding Biden’s racial remark about … putting y’all back in chains? I found her to be very impressive and certainly was keeping the discussion honest.
