Papers like the Plains Democrat, the Conservative Review.... then J-schools taught students that they should all appear to be "objective". No one is ever "objective". No news outlet is ever objective. Just come out and say so. FOX news says "Fair and Balanced". Baloney. Just admit their bias and go with it. But for someone to insist that CNN is "objective" is laughable.
    I agree that they are not objective, but they generally hate progressives, and have traditionally been a right-leaning or 'corporate centrist' news organization. They carried the torch for the Iraq Invasion, and about half of Fox News' current or recent line-up comes from CNN. Most of their anchors and commentators are centrist or right-leaning.

    I find it amusing that anyone would try to paint CNN as a liberal news outlet, much less try to school me on their true political leanings. If you want to go over their history, both past and recent, in detail -- I can oblige.

    If it were "progressive," it wouldn't be "liberal," because "progressives" and anyone to left of "progressives" aren't liberals.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    Years ago they were more centrist, and their higher ratings reflected that. But gradually they have become MSNBC lite....and their disastrous ratings reflect that new reality. They went through the same metamorphosis that ESPN went through, from straight news to leftist. ESPN has paid a price as well in their ratings drop. You can't alienate half your audience without tanking your ratings. Don't take my word for it; look at the ratings. Ratings will tell you how "centrist" you are in the news business, even most things.

    They aren't liberal or progressive so it doesn't matter. I mean, look at CNN's line-up.

    S.E. Cupp
    Smerconish
    Jake Tapper
    Wolf Blitzer
    Kate Baldwin
    Erin Burnett
    Dana Bash
    John King

    I think the most liberal guy they have on is Van Jones, who is friends with Kushner and slobbers over Buttigieg.

    Show me the overwhelming liberal bias.

    Most of them consider themselves "progressives." You obviously say they're not. Explain in detail what makes you right about them, and them wrong about themselves.

    I forgot to mention Fareed Zakaria, a guy who worships Reagan, who supported the Iraq War, and spends most of his segments lecturing the left on why their ideas are wrong. Wow, so liberal.

    Hillary Clinton and Amy Klobuchar also consider themselves progressive. Jimmy Dore considers himself progressive. Define 'progressive' in a way that encompasses both Hillary Clinton and Jimmy Dore. Go ahead, then I'll proceed with the detailed explanation.

    No, it's up to you to support your case that the people you mentioned aren't "progressives," though they consider themselves to be, so the burden of definition is all yours. Don't deflect.

    I will support my claim when we both agree on what the term 'progressive' means. Otherwise, what's the point? If both Jimmy Dore and Hillary have an equal claim, anything I say is irrelevant. So go ahead.
