CNN's Bossy Soledad O'Brien: I Treat Rudy Giuliani Like One of My Kids
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 10/30/2012 6:33:13 PM PDT by chessplayer

Lloyd Grove of the Daily Beast offers a positive profile of CNN's Soledad O'Brien -- she's "Cable TV's New Morning Thunder" -- but the morning host appeared quite arrogant in her trashing of Rudy Giuliani.

Grove loved her smack talk at Rudy as she tried to deny a Libya coverup on October 22: "It was the sort of thrashing that very few TV hosts would have the nerve to administer to the hero of 9/11. At an hour when many bleary-eyed viewers are waking up and easing into their day, it was the morning-show equivalent of spilling coffee on the bedsheets. It was also riveting television." And then she compared handling Rudy to talking down to one of her children:

“I really wasn’t pissed—we just had to lay out some ground rules,” says O’Brien, a 46-year-old mother of four. “You know what it reminded me of? It’s like when you speak to your kid, and you’re like, let me tell you something: we can disagree, or we can agree, but this is how it goes."

A child that could verbally bit*h slap Soledad with so little effort that she wouldn’t even know it had happened.

Ignorance and arrogance combined is such an ugly combination.

I remember 20 years ago when she was the little cub reporter/special assignments/token Hispanic girl at KRON 4 in San Francisco...she was cute in a high school journalist sort of way, but even back then I thought he had maxed out her potential. :)

I ponder how she treats her husband, provided he’s still around?

Must be a total wimp if he’s still around.

And at that point I would personally tell that bitch to go eff herself and end the interview right there.

The arrogance of the MSM know no bounds. Someday they are going to need to be put down like rabid animal.

Rudy managed one of the most complex cities on the planet.

Soledad was a commentator for a medium that occupied a brief period of dominance on this planet.

She was on the waves (radio first, before Soledad, then TV). Her medium was not, in the end, a font of the truth.

It wanted to be a purveyor of such but it became infected by ideology.

The world became a desperate place and, eventually, ideology gave way to the truth (that is, The Truth).

Soledad didn't make the transition.

Goodbye, Soledad.

If she treats her kids like that, someone needs to call DYS.

If it weren’t for WH and DNC talking points Obrien would have nothing to say. She adds little to the debate with her predictable Democratic bias.

No big thing......... what kind of viewership does this guy, O’Brien, have? Probably a total of 7 people saw the show, including the show’s producer, camera man and light man.

I didn’t see her until she came on NBC national in some capacity. At the time I remember her commenting on some email she was getting, and she was all put off because some guys thought she was attractive.

I guess that’s a real insult if you’re trying to make your mark as a Leftist.

She’s more like a high-priced media whore - big on looks, short on brains, but instead of walking the streets, she walks the airways.

I think the term could also be “media skank.”

As Liberal media shills go, she’s cute as hell. Liberal media bias is my biggest pet peeve, but somehow, when it comes to Soledad, I can’t get mad. She’s just too damned adorable.

As opposed to perky Katie, who I’d love to sucker punch right in the teeth. Not in the nose, not in jaw. POW!! Right in the teeth.

This is the way a jacked up diversity racist addresses her white boy inferiors. She talks directly about it to show other diversity racists how it is done and how she gets away with it. She’s skin deep proud of her little thuggy self.

In reality, Rudy makes her look the dumb thug fool. He laughs at her right to her face when she gets herself cranked up.

Strap On Soledad

wouldn’t want to be her husband

She has always been nasty strident harridan sort the Northeast breeds like rabbits

I prefer my women passive aggressive conniving syrupy “suga-dahlin” sorts that you have to really watch...like Southern gals..my own..lol

even when they are beating you up...it kinda feels good ..like whip me, beat me, make me write bad checks sorta love

women like Soledad..argubaly not overly homely..only know one operating mode....full frontal assault

the George S Patton guidebook for wifery

no thanks..life is too short and women too fine

i just looked at Soledad a bit...reminded me of Wings of Angels and the subtlty of race intermixing

usually it goes the other way but if she is a “quadroon”

her mom being I think half Tropical African Negroid..raced

she is married to a pasty white ultra liberal little genX looking cracker

her kids do not look of black ancestry at all

interesting

I grew up in Mississippi...segregated marriage wise..still is mostly...a few mulattoes from Jones county or mixed creoles on the coast pulled it off but not most..passing for white

Soledad’s daughters are darling...

She is kind of a Halle Berry...a mostly white woman living rich white but pretending to be black

What will her Emily Bronte looking kids live like?

this is a much more common topic today than ever before...here in metro Nashville, I would wager 25% of lower income women have at least one fatherless black child

they will likely not go the way of Soledad’s kids but rather enter urban aggregate undeclass

on the other hand...mixed race girls raised by the white grandparents do escape that...if raised right and in the grandparents culture

this all unfolding in real time around us here..there are success stories but it’s mostly just more demographic failure..and lack of cultural discipline

and I know it’s forbidden to speak of by GOPE sorts..but what the hell
