As I monitor the blog posts on CNN's coverage of the Republican Convention, in particular Gov. Palin's speech I am absolutely appalled by the biased one sided coverage they present on their website. Approximately 98% of the posts are negative towards the Palin, McCain, and the Republican party. Really only 2% of the people who watched the speech and then checked the coverage on the various news websites to include CNN supported and liked Palin's speech?? Really is this responsible reporting?? I flipped back and forth between FoxNews, CNN, and MSNBC to get their initial reactions, and the CNN commentators were absolutely silent. Now many of the news correspondents are stating that this was such an historic speech, one of the best of all time, yet apparently none of the "intelligent" bloggers for CNN seem to agree. This is just a prime example of how a corporate business wants to slant the information and the views of their customers to support their own agenda. It is absolutely embarrassing. Isn't it the duty of the media to provide information (hopefully as unbiased as possible) to the public on the issues, not to editorialize everything according to their opinion and beliefs?
By the way as I am watching CNN right now, Arizona just voted to officially nominate John McCain, and guess what the banner said at the bottom of their screen, "John McCain won the party nomination at the DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION!!" Are you kidding me?? Can they really take themselves seriously as a news organization or a entertainment show for the democratic left??
Seriously responsible reporting. This is absolutely embarrassing and a sad state of affairs for those in the public who want the information on both sides of an issue to make an informed decision themselves. If you don't want to be informed, have someone form your opinion for you, go ahead and believe what they tell you to believe. That is our current media's specialty!!
