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.
