CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien: “I don’t think I show bias in my TV show”

Of course you don’t, sweetie. Your bias is so ingrained it just oozes out naturally.

O’Brien also answered critics who complain about what they perceive to be a left-wing bias in her reporting.

“I don’t think I show bias in my TV show. I think I am aggressive with people about trying to find the facts behind what they say,” O’Brien said. “Am I a liberal or conservative? I’m neither. Like most Americans, I find politics very frustrating. Like most Americans, I’d like to hear from politicians the facts. That is what drives me.”

Meanwhile, one of O’Brien’s more relentless critics, the conservative media-watchdog group Newsbusters, was suggesting that the CNN anchor was again using TPM as an uncited source, also during a discussion about Medicare and budgets.

Medicare has been a hot topic with O’Brien since Romney named as his running mate Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, who says he has an economic plan to “save” Medicare from insolvency, though Democrats say the plan will simply gut the program.

In a heated exchange with Republican former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu on Tuesday, the guest was so frustrated at O’Brien for seemingly siding with Democrats that he told her, “Put an Obama sticker on your forehead when you do this.”

    But she is too stupid to think up her own points. She has to get them from somebody.

    And it is really her fault if stinking, racist, hateful, lying conservatives force her to point out that conservatives are stinking, racist, hateful, liars? I mean, somebody has to do it…

    I’m amazed O’Brien was able to say that or, well, anything when her lips are so clearly attached to Obama’s butt.

    Ain’t it amazing how, according to these beautiful people, the only people out on the left wing is the corpse of Trotsky (complete with an axe in his skull), while the right wing is populated with all manners of low life scum. Meanwhile, the beautiful people are all firmly amidships, sitting out of the slipstream, sipping the free drinks in first class. neither left nor right, lofty and far above the partisan fray, and by extrapolation, above us as well.
