Or just stupid? This short clip is hysterical. I'm not saying that CNN isn't biased either, but come onnnnnnnnn - this is a bit obvious to me!
Here's the rundown: To prove what a "battleground state" Pennsylvania is, the "reporter" asks everyone in a diner to raise their hands if they're voting for McCain. One hand goes up and his wife pushed it back down. Then he says raise em if you're voting for Obama. Nearly very hand in the place goes up. At which point the Fox stooge turns to the camera and with a straight face says, "See, it's split." You can hear the patrons in the background scoffing at him.
I find some of the commentators on CNN quite conservative. I have never gotten this "liberal" slant that people insist upon. For example, Campbell Brown seems conservative and she's married to a FOX news "analyst", which goes to show where she gets a lot of her ideas. Lou Dobbs is often conservative, and at the least independent, but certainly not liberal. There are lots of others on CNN that seem to report both sides evenly.
I don't really understand what's so funny about it. you can only see part of the restaurant, and he said it favored obama.
He said it was "Split" and there was no one behind him! The patrons were sitting, there were a few people standing in line behind him and then the camera turns to the people sitting down. Two hands went up for mccain (one hand was pushed back down by his wife and he then he voted for Obama afterward. Being old, he probably didn't hear it right the first time and he was most likely watching the reporter.) The ONLY other hand that went up was THE REPORTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
At least CNN has Lou Dobbs who goes after them all . The other 2 stations pretend to do that but they ADORE their candidate.
That's close...I prefer MSNBC and get mad at CNN sometimes. Of course Fox is just a joke...similar to Palin, a nationwide laughingstock.
