    It came from CNN so yeah, that is instantly discrediting

    It surprises me that nobody really realizes that this spectre of "unbiased" journalism doesn't exist anywhere in the world, and never really has. It only existed as an ideal, but not in reality - kind of like communism.

    So like I said - the usual "I don't want to hear it if it doesn't reinforce my preconcieved notions."

    Like I said, Don Lemon is a hack...And CNN's credibility has been questionable for some time, but I am willing to see what comes out at trial if it even gets that far.

    Are you denying there is a media bias. I only know of 1 network that is viewed as hyper conservative because it doesnt echo the liberal by line the other networks do.

    Fox is right but by far not as right as they are labeled. There is often an objective opinion on their commentary shows.

    Print journalists are even more skewed to the left. Its difficult to find someone that isnt a cheerleader for liberal causes.

    Radio is dominated by conservatives but they are not taken as anything but entertainment. I dont listen to rush. Few i know do. But if you are keeping score, the left have about 100 in the tank for every one of the right

    Not at all. And one example from a few years ago about a mistake made on Fox doesn't change the OP.

    It's a distraction. This is about CNN and what they are saying, not about FoxNews. FN may indeed be worse about injecting their opinions, but again, this isn't about something FN has done.

    The Fox News audience skews more ideological than that of its two main competitors. Fully, 60% of Fox News viewers describe themselves as conservative, compared with 23% who say they are moderate and 10% who are liberal, according to a 2012 survey by the Pew Research Center. By contrast, the ideological makeup of CNN viewers (32% conservative, 30% moderate, 30% liberal) and MSNBC viewers (32% conservative, 23% moderate, 36% liberal) is far more mixed.

    That's great, but it doesn't validate CNN as a source.

    Didn't you start a thread asserting that Michael Brown PAYED for his stolen cigars ?
