CNN Gets More Right-Wing

From the Carpetbagger Report:

It’s been a fascinating month for CNN. After watching Bob Novak switch to Fox News, the once-proud network quickly hired two far-right political figures to replace him…[William] Bennett and far-right radio host Glenn Beck.

Actually, make that three.

CNN has found a new conservative commentator: Former Republican congressman J.C. Watts Jr. “will join CNN as a regular contributor to offer analysis on politics and policy for programs throughout the network,” Jon Klein announced today.

I’m not aware of CNN announcing the recent hiring of any liberals.

If someone wants to start a commercial TV network similar to Fox News but with liberal hosts, now would be a good time. Liberals need a channel to turn to these days.

I have suggested a boycott so many times. Instead it is the same old, same old. Complain among ourselves while things get worse and worse. It is not only the Ds in the Senate without backbone Ds in general seem to have little if any backbone. Sue

Good, It’s time for CNN to stop becoming a freak-show liberal propeganda outlet and hire people more mainstream and in touch with the heartland

Sue Schneider-

Organizing a boycott isn’t easy. Maybe you could start a website with specific demands where people can sign up not to watch CNN until the demands are met.

Max Stein -

Is this statement by conservative Glenn Beck mainstream and from the heartland?


On families of the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: “[T]his is horrible to say, and I wonder if I’m alone in this — you know, it took me about a year to start hating the 9-11 victims’ families? Took me about a year.”
