Susan Roesgen, the hack who harassed tea party goers, was a driving force behind the flawed Jena 6 narrative that circulated the MSM cesspool back in 2007. The level of professionalism which made her famous on tax day has clearly been par for course in Roesgen's career. Patterico has uncovered the extent of her involvement pushing the absurd and reprehensible racially charged narrative:

Why is it that partisan hacks always seem to surface in CNN, CBS or the 0bama administration?

By this I mean we get so exercised about the messenger - when it’s pretty abundantly clear that the Roesgens, the Napalitanos, the Rathers the Mapes are only doing the bidding of those that sign their checks.

OTOH, I suppose one has to start somewhere but for anyone who works for a large organization when was the last time you made a public statement that a) wasn’t cleared by your higher ups and b) wasn’t inline with their coherent message?

Her main argument was very compelling: Why do you care that Obama has jerked government spending through the roof and promised that he’s going to crank your taxes sky high, you just got a 400 dollar tax credit!

What is clear is that she hates her own country, wants to advance a marxist agenda, and is a hypocrite. I think it goes without saying that the management of CNN agrees with her and will reward her for spewing misinformation and propaganda labeled “news.” She should be shunned.

I have never seen the MSM twist itself into such pretzle knots as over the Jena 6 case. Given the undisputed fact of six black guys beating one white guy so bad he was hospitalized, it amazes me that the Jena 6 were portrayed as the ‘victims’. Even some on FR fell for it.

I prefer all the disreputable so called reporters be confined to those two disreputable cable stations.

Wonder what she had to say about the Duke false prosecution case.

Now you know why FOX didn’t hire her.
