Posted on 08/16/2012 4:36:36 PM PDT by Starman417
Back in March Soledad O'Brien attempted to rewrite history to protect Barack Obama and was roundly criticized for it. As noted back then, O'Brien is very obviously an Obama/liberal sycophant yet she insists otherwise.
"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."
Self-deception can be very cruel.
In an exchange with Romney representative Barbara Comstock O'Brien was seen reading from TPM talking points
Following her being caught reading from TPM talking points she largely denied it
"Editorially, I was not reading off the Talking Points Memo."
Then O'Brien get into an exchange with Romney rep former Governor John Sununu and he just let her have it

So what if she’s liberal. You know what you are going to get when you tune in to MSNBC like you know what you will get when you tune into Sean Hannity. I do not see what the big commotion is!
It doesn’t matter if she doesn’t admit it. He called her out and that’s what matters. Made her look like a fool, too, and the more she claims she wasn’t reading WH talking points, the more foolish she looks.
These cable networks are hybrids: there are the opinion shows, usually on at night, which are all about a point of view or party line. The daytime newscasters, though, aren't expected to be so opinionated -- or at least they weren't back in the old days (even though they were).
Nowadays, some people expect everyone on a network to express a party line and wouldn't be angry if a newscaster conformed to the pattern of the opinion shows, but old beliefs about the desirability of objective or unbiased reporting persist, even though reporting isn't objective and never was.
Is she named after a prison?
the problem is the dishonesty. MSNBC and CNN still maintain that they’re not liberal bias. They pretend to be fair and balance. If you tune into Hannity, he will often say he’s a Conservative
Beginning to show her age.
It’s just amusing that they are in such denial about their very obvious bias.
Why not admit what they are ?
This is why nobody’s watching or buying big liberal media anymore.
They know they are biased, yet feign innocence and anger when confronted with their bias. And act fake outraged that we don’t buy their lies.
Not only is Soledad O”Brien a major league bubble-head she is also very self deluding. I have vague memories of thinking she was cute, but she sure has lost whatever cuteness she ever had. I guess some folks get better looking with age (classically beautiful women -think Cybill Shepherd or Candice Bergen- typically do) but aging is not kind to others and they begin looking much worse. Unfortunately for her, O’Brien belongs in the latter category.
I guess her dishonesty and the hatred she carries in her soul is having an effect.
Soledad O’Brien is/was cute enough for the gig of newsreader.
It is hard to give coherent analysis with a single digit IQ, so she’s maxed out on the Peter Principle. It’s obvious that she thinks that she can win a battle of wit, yet she is unarmed.
I certainly continue to believe that objective news reporting is desirable. That's a goal media should aspire to even though total objectivity is impossible.
The real crime in my opinion is media promoting the illusion that news reporting really is objective when it clearly is just the opposite. That's what the networks have been getting away with for years, fronting genial liberal frauds and fact-twisters like Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer, Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, Peter Jennings, etc.
Millions of politically unsophisticated TV viewers still believe the networks are giving them balanced information. Admittedly they're probably the same people who believe rasslin' is real, but they vote.
She has repulsive yaping voice, qualifying her for Oooobamas lap poooodle. Click!
Sure she’s unbiased. Our of fairness I’m sure she regularly does research on FreeRepublic to find questions with which to grill Democrats.
I love the way Sununu put her in her place the other day.
Nah, she doesn’t want to be Zero’s lap poodle.
He might EAT her.
Since they think that liberalism is such a jim dandy idea one would think that they would proudly self-identify. It must be a terribly tortured existence to be so internally conflicted.
Ship her to Cuba as a special correspondent to the Maximum Leader, Fidel. She’d finally find her true calling serving there.
One of the things that liberals do best is to lie to themselves.
Go back far enough and there was a sharp(er) division between News and Editiorial. Heck, even “60 Minutes” saved the editorial for the last 5 minutes of the program (was it Point/Counterpoint?)
They still pushed certain stories at the expense of others. So Editorial Judgment as to what constituted a Newsworthy story still skewed things leftward.
What else ?
If you were a ship on the ocean. you would capsize (only to the left) at the first movement.
Big fat racist radicals usually are biased. Her colored glasses make her feel superior to those who don’t respect her racial superiority.
