Skip to comments.It's Happening: CNN Already Freaking Out About New Media Vetting President Obama
Posted on 03/08/2012 3:50:23 PM PST by Kaslin
Last night, Breitbart.com released a video of President Barack Obama fully embracing radical Marxist Harvard Professor Derrick Bell. Now, predictably, the mainstream media is circling the wagons around the president and trying to distract away from the real issue: Barack Obama is a radical and his political philosophy was built by people like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Derrick Bell.
The Vetting: CNN Implodes Over Obama/Bell Video
Notice how CNN host Soledad O'Brian tries to cut off Amy Holmes, who happens to be black, when she defends the production of the video and the vetting of President Obama.
"This is an indictment of the mainstream media that did not open this conversation back in 2008 with the full video, with the full audio, it did not and we didn't have this conversation for the American people. We didn't broach this to then candidate Senator Obama to discuss his background which is all fair," Holmes said.
To answer O'Brian's question about where the "bombshell" is, I give you Michelle Malkin.

OBAMA AND THE BELL CURVE
Last night the spirit of Breitbart lived on with the release of a video showing Harvard law student Barack Obama celebrating the radical critical race theorist Derrick Bell. Bell cant be written off as some guy in my neighborhood as Obama did with William Ayers, or sloughed off like Rev. Jeremiah Wright with the I-didnt-really-listen-to-his-sermons excuse. Obama used to assign Bell in his class on race and the law at the University of Chicago. Now we know Obama has an affinity for Bell. Lets see if the mainstream media asks about this the way the media used to ask Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan about their supposed ties to the John Birch Society. Im not holding my breath....
More videos coming soon , talking heads going pop ,pop. I hate CNN ,it’s like those talking heads are always “YELLING” at you .
check out this thread from earlier today on Freep where a CNN host grills Joe the Plumber about his past remarks and “how what you said in the past is relevant when running for office”...
this link should be sent to TownHall as another example of the blatant hypocrisy of the criminal liberal media...
Saw the Soledad O’Brien video this morning.
Why? It’s CNN for cryin’ out loud. They are one of many foot soldiers in the Democrat Propaganda Machine that was once known as “the press corps”.
Look. I expect Soledad news slanting.
I don’t expect outright news fascism - which is what this was.
In 2008, LA TIMES refused to release the tape out of fear that it would damage candidate Obama's chances of becoming the new President of the United States.
There are rumors that in the 2008 videotape, candidate Obama said some things that would upset the American Jewish community and Israel leaders.
O’Brian is the female Rick Sanchez- both are extremely untalented and loathsome.
Soledad O'Brien defends Barack Obama
Soledad, while insisting that Mr Pollak was lying about Critical Racial Theology, did not know what it meant. After being pressed by Mr. Pollak on what SHE thinks it means, she didn’t answer. When he pressed her she gave verbatum the Wiki definition:
From Wiki-Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic discipline focused upon the intersection of race, law and power.
It looks like someone was reading this into her earpiece. Watch the video again. It’s pretty obvious! Enjoy!
I don’t watch CNN, I am glad though Kathy Pavlich posted it in Townhall.com though
Maybe we could pool enough money to put out a bounty on it to make some poor LA times employee or (laid off one that knows where it is) interested enough to have a copy appear?
That was disgusting. These people are the farthest thing from journalists that they could possibly be. I am repulsed.
This could work..CNN took the bait..got the discussion going.
Now, if there are more and increasingly damning videos to come. Hopefully one that is the knock out punch?
You know..a stain on a blue dress thing.
The MSM, with its usual arrogant ways, thinks all it has to do is play it all down and its smooth sail for King BO.
However, this isn’t 2008 and more people are starting to see him for what he is.
Forcing Catholics to go against their conscience and not doing anything to reduce gas prices. Infact, doing the opposite by denying the Keystone pipeline in a purple state no less.
It is time we educate the people against these _____rds and the entire SRM, or MSM, and LSM
It’s called “nooooo, we TOTALLY vetted Obama as the main stream media!!!!!! Why would you say otherwise????”
These people are from the Ministry of Propaganda, and in a sane world, the FEC would be coming down on them like a ton of bricks.
The snarky superciliousness was dripping from Soledad’s fangs.
On the other hand, I was VERY impressed with Joel Pollak - he was well-informed, expressed himself well, challenged Soledad, didn’t let her get him off track, showed a lot of courage & toughness and generally irked the ire of Soledad mightily in a polite and gentlemanly way. AB is smiling.
I’m convinced the media, including FOX, is told what to report everyday. Every media outlet has a liason they speak with on a daily basis.
But why are the republicans so afraid of this man? They apparently know something that we don’t know. And we know a lot! There’s something very creepy about all this.
Nice job as evenhanded interlocutor there, Soledad. Does the Obama campaign pay you by cash or check?
But Pollack handled her pretty well.
Yahoo’s headline right NOW:
Øbama video scandal Fizzles
I hope this nightmare ends. Not that Willard is any better. AT least he ran something.
The media love obama. It’s not all blackmail and threats. They truly love him and will do anything he asks them to do.
So if Harvard was being racist about tenure, then how did Henry Louis Gates get tenure at Harvard as as chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies and director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for Afro-American Research in 1991.
What an evasive definition. Like it was written just so a second-rate media bimbette could recite it on camera to void the issue.
Soledad was attending Harvard in 1988. Just sayin’.
They’re scared that all the stuff they hid in ‘08 so they could get that big “First Black President!!!” story will come out and torpedo anything left of their credibility. They’re scared with good reason.
I get the same feeling.
The good news is—I don’t fear Obama, the news media or Mrs. Sebelius.
I fear the Good Lord. And I pray to Jesus that all Americans do the same.
Soledad got pwned.
Something is up!
I was listening to that. “Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic discipline focused upon the intersection of race, law and power.”
It was idiotic to say that. I mean, Nazi philosophy is also focused upon the intersection of race, law and power, is it not? Soledad is is an apologist for race hatred on the left.
Some are saying that her producer was just reading from the entry into her ear-piece and that's why she got rattled.
They are hoping it fizzles, but we must keep it alive
That would have been the perfect comeback.
It tell you, these lefties are a sneaky bunch.
Soledad O’Brien is the Obama Administration’s “comfort girl.”
I think you misspelled _____rds. It is spelled bastards.
From what I’ve heard on the radio, Soledad O’Brien needs to wear a “I work for the Demonrats and O’bummer” sign while she is on air....
pathetic excuse for a journalist.
"CRT recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The individual racist need not exist to note that institutional racism is pervasive in the dominant culture. This is the analytical lens that CRT uses in examining existing power structures. CRT identifies that these power structures are based on white privilege and white supremacy, which perpetuates the marginalization of people of color. CRT also rejects the traditions of liberalism and meritocracy. Legal discourse says that the law is neutral and colorblind, however, CRT challenges this legal truth by examining liberalism and meritocracy as a vehicle for self-interest, power, and privilege. CRT also recognizes that liberalism and meritocracy are often stories heard from those with wealth, power, and privilege. These stories paint a false picture of meritocracy; everyone who works hard can attain wealth, power, and privilege while ignoring the systemic inequalities that institutional racism provides."
