Skip to comments.CNN 'Moderator' Finds GOP Eight Times as Dishonest as Democrats?
Posted on 10/18/2011 3:56:15 PM PDT by tobyhill
Tuesday nights Republican debate in Las Vegas will be moderated by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper. The CNN promo urges viewers to See if what happens in Vegas gets them closer to the White House. But Coopers nightly Anderson Cooper 360 often looks like its trying to keep Republicans away from the White House.
CNN advertises Coopers regular segment, Keeping Them Honest, with the question: Who's Anderson keeping honest tonight? Apparently, CNN and Cooper find Republicans are much more dishonest. Since July, a review of Keeping Them Honest segments found 24 reports tagging the Republicans with dishonesty, compared with just three for Democrats a ratio of eight to one.
In a review of programs from January 1 through October 14, Coopers show (with occasional guest hosts) has aired 164 of these "Keeping Them Honest" reports, and 80 have focused on political issues involving the two major parties, Republican and Democrat, or the two prevailing political movements, liberal and conservative. Of those political reports, Cooper focused exclusively on Republicans or conservatives 45 times, compared to just 13 for the Democrats or liberals, although 22 of the reports hit both sides.

I hope some of the GOP candidates hand Cooper his backside on a platter this evening. I expect Newt will as he has already shown a willingness not to put up with any moderator BS.
Ok, I’m late to the show here.
Why exactly does the Rpublican Party allow their debates to moderated and thus controlled by openly arrogant, in-your-face enemies?
Whoops, well enemies to CONSERVATISM, anyway.......
I’m not sure I can watch this tonight.
Slanderson Pooper really makes my skin crawl...
How very clever of the GOP to hold a debate in the enemy camp.
Well, as long as he's unbiased . . . . . . !!!
"Who's Anderson keeping honest tonight?"
Anderson Cooper is Gloria Vanderbilt son. I think of that every time I see him. Just a side note. Yes off topic, sorry.
Where is the debate streaming on the internet tonight? anyone know?
We know that Romney’s lies makes up 7 of the 8!!!!
On CNN cable at 8 EST
Actually, your being off-topic is quite appropriate when it’s an Anderson Cooper topic because he’s off-topic all the time.
I don’t have cable... I don’t see it on CNN’s website
I think the town hall-style forum with just Joe and Jane Average asking ALL of the questions is probably a better idea.
I am interested in seeing more of Herman Cain, though, so I'll watch. I'm strongly considering giving him my primary vote, so I want to gather as much information as I can.
I missed the last one due to being out of town and not having the time or desire to park in front of a TV set.
What did you expect from a “trust fund” momma’s boy?
Fixed it for you.

That is my first question....
My 2nd: Why is the RNC allowing all these debates to happen ONLY on TV channels we have to pay for?
Millions of us do not have cable or satellite TV. Early this summer, the news said that over 200,000 HOUSEHOLDS had cancelled their pay TV. No longer can afford it.
We are tax paying voters & we are not being allowed to watch these debates!!!
What is the RNC thinking???
It would be great fun and great sport to see the GOP candidates turn the tables on the CNN asshos.
You answered your own question. And saved me from posting the same thought.
Anderson Cooper is always good for at least one question on Gay Rights. I wonder why?
It will be interesting if he asks more one question on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and one on Gay Marriage.
Not that Cooper has not only been outed as a literal teabagger, we find that he is actually a fleabagger (old homosexual male) also.
Can you make that graphic again but put a flea on the teabag instead of the tea logo? [That is if you made the original]
I didn’t create the image but I did do some creative borrowing.
