10. A newspaper put it on their front page, so they put it on headline news, prominently shown
Edited on Thu May-22-08 05:48 PM by L. Coyote
several times. Now they are reporting on psychic prediction for the election.

And, they followed the Ellen/McCain clip with a picture of Obama!

2. Why would you think CNN is any better?
They've been in the gutter for a long time now.

3. "Oh we're just a news organization. We report things that are happening."
What a hollow claim. Someone else does something dispicable and they just report "the news".

This is like the teenage girl who passes along a rumor, but when she gets busted her excuse is "I just passed the hateful lie along, I didn't make it up."

4. Somebody who witnessed it needs to call the FBI. NOW.
That's am implied death threat, or incitement to assassinate a presidential candidate.

16. The entire nation and the world witnessed it on Headline News.
Meanwhile, how did what Hillary said get into the public realm? She did not say it publically.

19. Well if CNN had been asked why they are still on the air. Then showed that picture.
You would have equivalent outrage. But they were just reporting the news. Not making it like Hillary was.

5. What was it, 4 days ago Obama suggested he wanted to break up the big media conglomerates?
Now they LITERALLY have him in the crosshairs.

Far less subtle than when they went after Howard Dean for the same reason.

I honestly believe Barack Obama might have lost this election the very second he suggested smashing the corporate media conglomerates.

7. CNN Headline News: The Glenn Beck Network. No surprise here.
Any network that would give that sick degenerate Glenn Beck prime-time air time would of course do something like this.

9. People Working Behind the Scenes Usually Know How the Public Will React

This was intentionally or forced by a higher-up. What a disgustingly stupid thing to do....

13. CNN? Haven't trusted them since the Rapture they predicted last year never happened
Is the Bible still their major source for foreign policy background?

15. CNN showing this is far worse than mentioning a past event!! IMO
But where is the outrage about showing Obama in the crosshairs, redundantly in a "news" broadcast?
Not to be seen. My immediate impression is that if a DEM can be bashed, that is more important.

I worked for Robert Kennedy at the time of the assassinations. I understand the horror. I also understand, from within the campaign, the significance of that evening. We knew that we had won the presidency that night as we won the California primary. It was even the topic of a phone conversation from our state HQ with National HQ. I left the offices at the end of the speech. At precisely 7 AM my radio alarm loudly blared "Sen. Kennedy is dead," the instant it came on.

I'd like to see CNN take just as much heat as I see directed at Sen Clinton.
I have to ask, "Who put Obama in the crosshairs on national television?"

I must add, perhaps 40 years later, we will finally deal with the political forces who kill their political enemies.

One place to start is with those involved in killing liberals.
