    Yes their new station is only slightly biased, it's their writers, and more importantly their followers that are radical conservatives.

    A couple weeks ago an Internet search too me to CNN's website home page. 100% of their links to OP-EDs were either anti-Romney or pro-Obama.

    Yes. The key word is "Op-Eds." Otherwise known as "some guy's opinion."

    The mayor actually has to call her out on it.

    ...well if you were able to read between the lines for both sides, you'd realize Mayor Giuliani is voting for Romney and has an (R) by his name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudy_Giuliani I believe a lot of people initially thought the attacks were a response to the anti muslim movie. I believe the president though that at first too. Further investigation showed that was not the case, end of story. Romney tried to score political points before he really understood the situation.

    And when some guys opinion become the standard for what a news organization presents and it consistently supports one side that is bias.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    OP-EDs by their staff, for which 100% were pro-Obama and anti-Romney, and those the only OP-ED links. Thus, it fair to conclude:
    1. 100% of CNN staff is actively supporting Obama using their position with CNN to do so and
    2. CNN will allow no opinions other than pro-Obama and anti-Romney to be seen.

    Easy enough to figure out. I doubt anyone doesn't understand that CNN is MSNBC-light, MSNCB partisanship but presented in a less raging manner.

    I would say somewhere between the first and second choice on the Poll. Anderson Cooper is in Obama's left front pocket, so there's no way in Hell CNN is anything other than somewhere Left of Center.

    Damn, either this Cooper guy is really damn small, or Obama has some gigantic pockets.

    It'd be a combination of both. What do you think?

    Re: Is CNN left-wing biased?

    Really weird thread, because I have been looking at CNN lately and thinking, "This is Fox-lite". Perception and mind set is everything. Weirder is that for most folks who know me . . . if a real Republican ever ran for office, I'd vote for them.
