CNN reporter demonstrates exactly why Rupert Murdoch founded Fox News

by editor on April 16, 2009

Back when Rupert Murdoch founded Fox, he said he was doing it because CNN was biased, out of touch and ignored a major part of the audience.

Murdoch’s wisdom was never more evident than during yesterday’s Tea Parties.

First, a CNN reporter asks a man why he’s at the Tea Party, interrupts his answer, and raves about the state of Illinois gets $50 billion in “stimulus” money.

We could excuse it as the emotional excesses of a single reporter. Except for one thing: the YouTube video of the segment is titled “CNN Reporter Roughed Up at Chicago Tea-Party” despite the fact that there was no physical confrontation whatsoever. The bias is simply endemic at CNN.

This one simple clip demonstrates why Fox has higher ratings than the other cable news networks combined.

The loons constantly demonstrate to us why Fox News SHOULD be on the air.

Thank You Mr. Murdoch.

Thanks DeeMac – even though its painful, I always like to see what the opposition is up to. I did not mention this in my earlier post, but there’s a ton of smirking, snarky comments made on HuffPo aimed at the academic credentials of those who disagree with the left wing point of view. I find that particularly offensive.

Tom, please accept my deepest heartfelt thanks for risking your sanity by spending an hour over there. It took courage and fortitude. Thanks for the report! You are my hero.

Yes, it’s sickening. And HuffPo is a pretty mainstream (for the left) site. Try Reddit, DailyKos and the DemocraticUndergound.com if you really want to see extreme wackos! I think Michael Savage has the term for them right — vermin.

I spent a difficult hour reading the “comments” on the Huffington Post. The gist of the comments about the Tea Party activity can be boiled down to:

1 – The Tea Parties were a staged event sponsored by Fox News.
2 – The real reason why people are protesting is they do not accept a black president
3 – All the protestors are Timothy McVeighs-in-waiting
4 – I can outdo other readers in terms of sophomoric jokes about “tea bagging”.

My head really hurts now!

This is what desperation looks like. CNN et al have almost no ratings. They chose their side and now it appears to have been a bad bet.
