Hambry is the same POS who tried to tie Ryan to a racist term used 150 years ago: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2931574/posts

Hamby is not a journalist.

Hamby is a partisan hack.

Of course, that makes him like 99% of the so-called 'journalists' out there.

Every Democrat supporter I meet has an incoherent argument because they easily repeat Media bias, but have no comprehension of facts.

Example: Clinton's 1993 tax increases improved the economy. Not true, it was after the Congress 1997 tax cuts that the economy really improved.

For the presidential debates shouldn’t the moderators disclose who they have donated to? The moderators should be balanced with equality and diversity that these jack azzes love so much. Dem donator, then that should be balanced with a repub donator.

Like the NFL referee found to be a big Saints fan on his youtube page, so he was yanked from a game?

You have to be a professional to commit malpractice. Refereeing is a profession, and if you are admittedly biased, well, it’s a problem.

Journalism is a trade, like bait-chopping on a crab boat. They don’t claim to be objective:
Every day their words and actions evidence that their lips are firmly pressed to the Demos’ backsides.

It’s sad when we have to get most news facts from Int’l sources or independent freelance journalists because our journalists here are more interested in promoting their own opinions and interests.

I like it that they are frantic about Obama having to spend money in states they thought they had sewn up

I bet they even need to campaign in CA and NY this year

That will spread his funding even thinner, and GOP will not even have to bother in firm GOP states.

I dont like the term red state/ blue state- prior to 2004 Demoicraps were always known by commie RED.

CNN Reporters Call CPAC a ‘Conservative Petri Dish’

By Brent Baker | February 09, 2012 | 14:50

Shortly before noon Thursday, live from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), CNN political reporter Peter Hamby described the gathering as a “conservative petri dish” to measure “how Mitt Romney is received and how his challengers are received too.” Anchor Suzanne Malveaux chimed in: “I love that, conservative petri dish. That’s a great way to describe it.”

A petri dish is defined as “a shallow circular dish with a loose-fitting cover, used to culture bacteria or other microorganisms.” As if conservatives are some kind of organism in a contained space to be studied from above by the “scientists” at CNN for our harmful effects. We’re not the Ebola virus, but that seems as if it’s how CNN sees conservatives. Video below.

With luck it will repeat history and go away for another 70 years.

I actually don’t have any problem with a journalist supporting 0bama. What I have a problem with is when that journalist pretends that he is objective and non-partisan.

What I’d really like to see is for every journalist to state his/her position on the candidates and issues. I am sick of the leftwing media claiming they are objective and unbiased when in fact they are about 10:1 (maybe more) in the tank for the Democrats.

Journalism is dead. The bias is blatant and they are an arm of of the Obama admin.

Which is the reason I've been calling them "the ministry of propaganda" for some time now.

They've given up all pretenses of being objective.

>> Journalism is dead

It was really never alive until recently if you think about it. But because of today’s diverse sources of info, the ironically ‘traditional’ media has ratcheted up the stakes exponentially.

There's a problem with Hambry's contention.

Ryan was speaking to Florida but it's Shenandoah Valley of Virginia that is and was known as the "Bread Basket of the South" during the Civil War.

Hambry was clearly fed a talking-point and ran with it without vetting.

Michelle, queen of the vacations at taxpayer expense, wants you to have a yard sale and send her the money?

http://www.yardsaleforobama.com/

Obama and his team for reelection really have no shame.

Tweeting a sale on sweatshirts as the bodies of the Ambassador to Libya and 3 others are returned home.

Comparing his campaign workers to the Americans murdered by mobs overseas.

Asking you to forego your wedding gifts and instead send the money to Obama.

Michelle Obama, the notorious vacationer who’s enjoyed 18 vacations on your dime, asks you to skip your pizza and send the money to her.
