EMAIL CNN: Crowley's 1hr piece on Kerry was 70% antiKerry.
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 08:29 PM by blm
Amazing...in just one hour she managed to get almost every hitman used by the GOP and their RW media henchmen to rail against Kerry.

She paraded Oneill, Howie Carr, the wingnut editor of the Lowell Sun who ripped at Kerry daily in his paper, Bob Dole, and some others.

She edited his full quote from the Vietnam hearings to make it sound as if Kerry was claiming the atrocities, when we all know he said that he was at the Winter Soldier meeting and HEARD OTHER SOLDIERS TESTIFY TO WHAT THEY SAW. He always used the collective WE during that hearing to refer to those he represented and they purposely edited the first part where he was more specific.

Candy Crowley is DIRT.

This needs ACTION.

2. blm -- I'd like to see this as a "call for action" thread
I didn't see the show, but everyone who did needs to email their displeasure to CNN.

30. When the most liberal show on CNN is Lou Dobbs,
the world is in real trouble.

I like Lou. He is at least informed.

The rest are just plain unbearable.

5. It was a Republican campaign ad
It talked about anything that could be negative about Kerry; flip-flops, voting on the war, Patriot Act and then showed film clips to emphasize her commentary and remarks.

It was an ad against the Democratic nominee by CNN, a news station.
And it was obviously deliberate that it would be telecast at the start of the Democratic National Convention.

8. Last night's broadcast of True Believers, about the Dean campaign
was also deliberate. The Bushwhores at CNN are doing what they can to rub salt in the wounds of those Dean supporters still mad about the outcome.

They will foment controversy and divide the Dems at every opportunity. They have been doing it for decades and have now brazenly escalated their efforts for their BushInc masters.

9. When I heard Howie Carr say that they interviewed him
extensively for the program I knew it was going to be a character assassination piece.

UNREAL. When are they going to do one on B*SH?

14. Does anyone remember the similar show they did on Gore
and showed just before the election?

They actually showed a window outside a dorm room and "reported" that Tipper Gore used to sneak into Al Gore's dorm to spend the night.

This is going to get REALLY UGLY

15. She is a dangerous whore


I didn't see the whole thing. I came in when he was speaking before the Congressional Committee. Things were going well IMO.

Then, she hit my button. When she had the nerve to focus on his speaking ability I almost threw my TIVO remote at her! Who is she to talk about his speaking ability? She inserts three quick clips that "prove" that he is not articulate.

She is no journalist. She is a cheap hire and that is what I told CNN.

Let's see if she mentions the Chimp's speaking ability - ha,that will never happen.

I let them have it in my email! I told them that I would be watching both conventions in CSPAN.

23. I expected a lot worse
I can see I'm in a minority here, but I thought it was an overall positive piece. I didn't think it would be without criticism but I thought it painted a very good portrait of a person who is well qualified to be a fine president. I don't know how they'll manage to do that with Bush. I figure just an hour of him standing on top of the rubble at the WTC, cause that's all he's got going for him.

25. My letter
Dear Fair and balanced. Hope you question the articulate speaking of the current resident who was selected by the Supreme Court as much as you questioned the dem candidate. You sure lost a lot when Time Warner bought you out. You lost a lot when you lost Ted Turner and mostly you lost the ability to report the news without commentary..Just like Fox. You lost me as a viewer tonight along with many others. You people are pathetic as far as journalism.

I am surprised you have not stooped to the viewing of beheadings. My my Candy Crowley is one of the worst and many who do not even support Kerry have discovered that you invent more news that report. CNN now stands for
Counterfit News Network..Fair and Balanced. You did not even have the imagination to be rightwinged in the beginning, you had to copy Fox. Trust me. At least we knew Fox was inventing the news, now you have copied them to raise your ratings. Pity. You just have no imagination. You could have been great again. You chose the low road. Candy just never got off the bus with George Bush on the 2000 campaign trail. It shows.

How you can continue to allow Candy Crowley, an obvious Bush supporter and right wing shill, to cover any Democrat is a mystery for the ages. She consistently disgraces herself, your network, and her profession with her bizarre right wing hit pieces. Her latest on Kerry is a sad piece indeed. I will not watch another second of CNN until Ms. Crowley is reassigned, and I will begin informing your sponsors of my intention to stop purchasing any product that appeared during a Candy Crowley segment. I have no interest in watching her screeds masquerading as reporting, or Ms. Crowley herself masquerading as a person of integrity and honor.

29. Forgot to mention this in my earlier post--
What makes it increasingly annoying to me is they run run that "Flyboy" piece over over and over again. They must hope the father will rub off on SON.

The Biographical piece they did on Dubya was all positive they did mention his "Jim Beam"Problem in passing. There were no Democratic Talkers there commenting or giving their two cents on George Bush.

The double standard glares. Keep in mind the Broadcast Industry are pro Republican. In local stations it is not uncommon for them to tell the rank and file staff. "It is in our best interest to have Republicans in office as they go to vote.

Found it interesting MSNBC decided to run a special on Kerry as
an anti war protester . Spent at least an hour--Brian Williams did.
I realize this is part of John Kerry,s history but to dredge up that
here on the eve of our onvention.--I just question. Again Broadcast Industry prefers Republicans.They(Broadcast Media) would not even look into Bush and AWOL Story until they were absolutley forced to.
They play their Bush Bigraphy and the Laura Bush Story over and over--Fluff pieces.

The Media should not wonder why they are not trusted.

32. I called, 404-827-0234, pressed 1 to leave message --
and demanded, as one of the majority of CNN viewers who are Democrats, a similar profile of GW Bush, during the Republican Conventiion highlighting Bush's AWOL from the NG, cocaine abuse, many DUI arrests, failed businesses, etc. The Crowley hit piece was an outrage.

Action necessary on this piece of propaganda.

They never mention that their source, John Oneill, was in league with Nixon to smear Kerry. Let's hear THAT part of Nixon's WH tapes.

35. She didn't even TRY to appear balanced. Every accomplishment
Kerry has had was diminished into a calculated cold move.

By the end of the show Kerry was:

A gold digger
An opportunist who joined the military only to avoid a draft
A man who left Vietnam due to minor injuries
A guy who didn't really save lives, because the enemy never fired
A flip flopper because he protested the war after joining the military
A kid who wanted to be president since he was 12 and did everything in his life in an attempt to become President one day.

It was friggen pathetic.

Creepy Crawley will be hearing from me. :(
