Skip to comments.CNN Reporter at Chicago Tea Party: It's "Anti-CNN...Promoted By the Right-Wing...Fox"

CNN correspondent Susan Roesgen could barely get through her live shot at the Chicago tea party this afternoon. Over shouts of, "You're not a reporter," Roesgen quickly wrapped up an interview with an attendee, then said, "I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox."
“You’re not a reporter,”
These imbeciles will never get what we are about. Dumb as a box of rocks.
there is no right-wing network.... we can wish
No kidding. The CNN reporterette would probably soil herself if she saw a real conservative network.
Video wasn’t there.
My my, but she does take herself and CNN far too seriously. The TEA parties are about something much bigger than any one reporter of questionable talent and one network of known bias...
if we could get those tea partiers to pony up $100 a year instead of buying into leftwing businesses, we could easily get our own channel.
I’m embarrassed for her.
Follow up the Tea Party with a phone call to your U.S. senator advising them to vote NO on the budget. Encourage others to do likewise. And, the true power is at the polls in 2010!
The self absorbed, self centered, idiots at CNN think it all about them. What losers!
The alleged “reporter” said they should cut away because it wasn’t “family viewing”.
I don’t recall hearing any profanity though.
I guess the idea that one of the kulaks actually had the audacity to talk back was offensive and shocking enough.
They dish it out but they can't take it.
Did you ever see CNN send a reporter into a group of illegal aliens at their LARGE May Day rallies a few years back, and poke a finger in somebodys face and say "well, the fact of the matter is, YOU ARE HERE ILLEGALLY SIR, so why don't you go back and stop asking for special treatment which is unfair to legal immigrants?!"
This was essentially her tone. She was not a reporter, she is a Liberal Democrat, Obama-sucking J-school graduate-cum-activista and she PRECISELY went there with malace and aforethought to lecture, to set the trap, to get yelled at in return, and then regroup and excitedly beg pity and tell CNN viewers what a bunch of crackpots she had just encountered, handing the ball back to the studio where her colleague echoed the same liberal diarreah.
This is one of the most ridiculous set ups I have seen in YEARS.
The "You are not a reporter!" that was hurled at her came at the VERY END, after this CNN-ette had spit her own personal, anti-Tea Party view and taunted interviewers with some gotcha paparazzi in your face schtick, and otherwise did NOT engage in journalism. It was only at that point that somebody yelled "You Are Not A Reporter".
Somebody should back to back this CNN woman talking to Pro-Constitution, Anti-Tax Patriots this way, and then intersperse the CNN man in the street interviews at the Obama Inauguration on the Washington Mall, to get a contrast of how unbalanced they are, how they view some as outright enemies to be slandered and shut up, and others to be given kid gloves, elevated and given a bull horn (to promote their Liberalism and Socialism) and they even joined in cheers for Obama in their reporting from the crowds.
I caught that subtle dig, tooay, about the “not family viewing”. She was thereby inferring they were vulgar or violent. This is the kind that buys 100% into the DHS Enemy of the State Report trying to stigmitize legitimate conservative/indepdendent dissent against Obama and Welfarist Socialism.
The rally in Louisville was a classic example of the difference in class between the left and the right. No trash, no profanity, smiling and friendly people. No odor of "hate" permeating the grounds. They absolutely can't stand the fact that we have class, and they have none.
As I mentioned on another thread, I was at the Chicago gathering. I did not see this particular reporter, though I did see several news people. The plaza was crowded (it’s not a large area, though), and I’d estimate it is about 12,000 - 15,000 square feet in size, including the sidewalks. I’d say the crowd numbered about 1,500.
Everyone was very well-behaved. The National Anthem was led by a woman with a great voice (but I could not see her from where I was, and I did not catch her name). I did see John Kass (a very good columnist from the Chicago Tribune).
The signs were varied and terrific!
Believe me, the American people are fed up, and, as the Peter Finch character in “Network” said: “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!”
And that is the edited version, I was there about ten feet away, she was really trying to incite the crowd and actually succeeded. We began chanting Go Home CNN and she had to leave. It was one of the most disgusting pictures I have seen of liberal bias ever.
We were also at the Chicago Tea Party and estimated the crowd size to be somewhere around 2,000 and I would guess that it was a little more rather than less.
That so called CNN reporter was awful and ended up being shouted out and left. We were chanting Go Home CNN over and over. A few cops came over and I suggested to them that the reporter had tried to incite a riot...she was really very caustic, this video is edited believe it or not.
This video is going viral folks...it’s already at 62,000 views and it was just taken this afternoon.
They just do not get it.
Who was the weirdo that came up on our guys left and interrupted him at the moment that he was speaking to the reporter?
They don’t understand that silent majority doesn’t need marching orders from Soros and Acorn.
The MSM is so used to “rent a mob” type protests made up of protesters that are professional protesters. They have culture shock over this and it shows.
I was there, part of the time (noon-12:25). I was surprised that so many people attended. Part of the time, I could barely move.
I was there from 12:10-12:40 and the crowd was enthusiastic and large.
I don’t know, he was certainly annoying though. I think he just wanted to get some air time, he did and sounded like an idiot :) But, CNN should really be blasted by us folk and by the media for it’s attempt to incite the crowd and it’s lack of reporting rather than propagandizing.
This evening, this FReeper watched some YouTube videos, which were a series - basically an hour long televised interview about America’s financial future.
The experience was in every way, as informative, as interesting and as compelling as watching television.
The technology, really not that advanced.
A “network” is no longer needed. FreeRepublic could become a “network” for that matter.
All that’s needed is video capability, and enough bandwidth to handle the massive surge in traffic a “FreeRepublic News Network” could generate.
We don’t need to worry about biased news media.
Let’s just make our own.
“Go home CNN”. Haaa! Love it. Thank you to all who were able to attend!!
I H8 CNN! Perfect example of why...filthy Obama lovers.
