Default CNN says WE DON'T DO STATE SENATORS!

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinio...olumn/7081115/


But and here's the part Hollywood would miss outside of local media like San Francisco magazine, the coverage was surprisingly muted.The New York Times buried the story as a one-paragraph Associated Press report on page A21, with the bland dog-bites-man headline, "California: State Senator Accused of Corruption." This even though Yee was suspended, along with two others, from the California state senate in light of the indictment.

CNN, home (also until last week) of Piers Morgan, whom Yee had praised for his anti-gun activism, didn't report the story at all. When prodded by viewers, the network snarked that it doesn't do state senators. Which is odd, because searching the name of my own state senator, Stacey Campfield, turns up a page of results, involving criticisms of him for saying something "extreme". Meanwhile, CNN found time to bash Wisconsin state senator and supporter of Gov. Scott Walker, Randy Hopper over marital problems.

Not suprised. CNN backs their political agenda just like FOX does, at almost all costs.

Unless it's Texas state senator Wendy Davis: filibustering a proposed law that prohibits aborting viable infants, and requires abortion to be performed in appropriately regulated facilities that any other outpatient surgical procedure requires. CNN provided wall to wall coverage of this previously unknown state senator.

Leland Yee: local crime story, nothing to report.

Wendy Davis: national news and liberal sainthood.

We know it would of course since republicans are expected to be the party of morals while the democrats are not expected to have any, which gives them the excuse to be the party of creeps. They still revere the biggest creep of all in Bill Clinton.

They don't have a problem thinking a kiss is a huge story. Gun smugglers, nothing to see here!

These idiots claim and have for decades to be unbiased. They somehow believe only reporting stories that match their own beliefs and promote their agendas is "telling the truth." Warped to say the least and beyond really any kind of mental help when that makes sense to them.
