Posted on 08/19/2008 12:49:14 PM PDT by Pyro7480
CNN correspondent Mary Snows report on Mondays The Situation Room about Barack Obamas charge that pro-life "folks are lying" about his abortion record actually just presented both sides of the controversy without getting to the reality of the matter. The report, which was promoted as "checking the facts" by host Wolf Blitzer, also omitted how Obamas campaign conceded on Sunday that the pro-lifers were actually accurately representing his record.
Before Snows report aired just before the top of the 6 pm Eastern hour of the CNN program, Blitzer read two promos for it. In the first, he announced how "Barack Obama [is] in the middle of an abortion battle. Now, he's pushing back after an extraordinary claim against him. We're going to examine the record." In the second promo, Blitzer played Obamas "lying" sound bite, and stated, "Senator Obama blasts opponents for distorting his record on abortion-related legislation. We're checking the facts."
...This isnt the first time CNN has omitted details about Obamas record on the born-alive legislation. Correspondent Carol Costello didnt mention two of Obamas votes on the bill during a report in July, and anchor Don Lemon didnt mention the issue at all in his summary of Obamas abortion stances on August 12. Three strikes -- youre out, CNN.

A pretty idiot.
in the olden days (1990’s) CNN would have gotten away with this
GO PAJAMA PATROL~!!
Actually when the studio lights are turned off, and the hair & makeup artist is gone — all you are left with is an idiot.
Absolutely not - if this were an SEC filing the networks would be sued for failing to state material facts.
The truth is, I have no idea when Obama would deem a baby to have a right to live, free of the “mother’s” right to “choose.” Even babies outside thw wome don’t pass his test. One would hope that they would sometime - pehaps before entering Kindergarten?
Here is yet another vaccuous ninny on CNN trying to tell me how to think.
I refuse to believe their lies.
vaccuous = vacuous
no relation to Tony, RIP?
The Obamessiah is being quite honest in his commentary on rights. In his view, NO ONE has any rights unless he says so.
CNN = A member of the liars of record.
