CNN plays “Stupid Girls” bumper over Palin Story
Hot Air ^ | July 29,2012 | Jazz Shaw

Posted on 07/29/2012 9:34:26 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Coming out of a commercial break at 8:40 AM eastern time today, during Randi Kaye’s shift on CNN, the network “unexpectedly” chose to play the refrain from the song “Stupid Girls” by the pop singer Pink going into a story about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The two word refrain repeated over and over as the camera panned past Ms. Kaye and faded into a picture of Palin visiting a Chic-fil-A restaurant. The host then went on to a fairly stock story about the recent Chic-fil-A brouhaha, including Palin’s visit, with no reference to the introductory tune.

For the record, it’s my understanding that the hosts of these shows on the 24 hour cable news channels generally have nothing to do with the selection of the bumper music. That’s usually handled by the production staff, and a specific individual is frequently assigned to do nothing but select the musical cuts. CNN can – and probably will – easily say that it was all a coincidence and it might be hard to prove otherwise. (EDIT: See update.)

This is, however, kind of reminiscent of that rapidly exploding moment when the house band on Jimmy Fallon’s show played a derogatory song clip as then presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was coming on stage. Fallon later had to apologize. It makes one wonder if these networks ever manage to learn anything from the past.

After chatting with Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters about it, he came up with the video, which follows.

If I were on of CNN's 124 viewers, I would be insulted.

How about "this song over Barry's intro or Fast and Furious!?

What a bunch of Putzes.

Sarah, during a recent speech, referenced the Kelly Clarkson song, ‘What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger.” Sarah has withstood all of the liberal assaults; she'll continue to do just fine.

In the meantime CNN ratings and their floater of a company president swirl down the toilet bowl. This pile of reaking excrement can’t be flushed fast enough.

More people love Sarah Palin than the media care to admit. The Daily Mail tried a hit piece on her today for going to Chick-Fil-A and as usual she garnered widespread support through comments and green arrows. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2180410/Sarah-Palin-Tweets-support-Chick-Fil-A-anti-gay-tirade-claiming-great-business.html

Interesting, that right after Palin makes a side-trip to Chick-Fil-A, standing up for free speech, free enterprise, and Christian values, you have CNN going out of its way to demean her, and the GOP-e (courtesy of Cheney) putting yet another dagger in her back.

Not surprisingly, CNN programming is run by faggots and degenerate democrats.

The Tea Party was a huge part of why Scott Walker survived the recall despite the unions and Dems throwing everything they had to defeat him! The Tea Party will also be the main reason why WI and PA will go GOP in November.

Dems still don’t understand that the Tea Party is a state of mind.

I’m sure it was an innocent mistake. It could have just as easily happened as a story on Hillary was being introduced. /sarc

>>Dems still don’t understand that the Tea Party is a state of mind.<<

Exactly. It’s hilarious to contrast the MSM’s treatment of those going to Tea Party events with those attending Occupy Wall Street “events.”

Anarchists=Good

Law-abiding citizens in favor of upholding the Constitution=Bad

That alone leads to the easy conclusion: MSM=Bad for the country and the Constitution (which explains the not-so-slow demise of that very same MSM).

Oxymoron. And, no, that doesn't mean an imbecile who's addicted to pharmaceutical narcotics.

Oxymoron.

I think you mean "redundancy." "Ethical Democrat" would be an oxymoron.

I guess their audience REALLY is this stupid. Besides, wasn't the song done by a group named Garbage?

Cheney’s daughter is queer. Cheney supports “queer” marriage. Since Palin does not, he “must” criticize her.

Have you not noticed that this “issue” trumps all others, even with so-called conservatives. If you don’t toe the quuer-line, you will be mocked, attacked, and insulted.

Its a queer thing!

Actually I think conservative media watchdogs are the only people who watch CNN anymore. Well, aside from airports and hospitals and such.
