Soledad O’Brien Insults CNN Guest

‘Some People Make Your Head Hurt When They Speak’

from NewsBusters

CNN continued its trend of marginalizing gun rights advocates on Wednesday. Anchor Soledad O’Brien derided a CNN guest who had cited her fear of tyrannical government as reason to own a semi-automatic rifle.2013-01-16-CNN-O'Brien-Duckworth

“Some people make your head hurt when they speak. Wow. And that was one of those moments,” O’Brien sneered in front of Democratic Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (Ill.). [Video coming soon. Audio here.]

Wednesday’s episode provides a classic example of how CNN treats gun rights advocates versus gun control advocates. The network features the most controversial pro-gun rights statements and then openly mocks them on-air. CNN rarely, if ever, highlights controversial statements by liberals and de-constructs their errors.

Have you noticed that CNN seems to be competing for the slimyist news network? Will they soon take over the award from MSNBC?

    “….Have you noticed that CNN seems to be competing for the slimyist news network?….”

    Hey, the competition to be named the official state-run news network in 2014 is fierce. Especially since NBC has an inside track with Jeffrey Immelt.

    It’s only going to get slimier and uglier.

    As a public service, each story like this should be accompanied by a list of those companies that sponsored the program.

    CNN is trying to make a run for it having tapped a former NBC executive to make them lean even more forward. Resist we much, mofos!

    The fact that a know-nothing bint like Soledad O’Brien has a national forum from which to display her nitwittedness is truly sad.

    I’ve said this before but her show is on when I am at the gym. There is a bank of TVs and I listen to Fox or the radio but I can tell by the look on Soledad’s face if she is talking to a progressive or conservative. She looks majorly constipated when taking with a conservative. I thought she was being replaced?

    Has anybody else noticed that deepening line of division running through America and watching the different sides taking a shape and becoming more rigid. I guess Barry’s getting what he was after. Hope he likes it when it happens.

    “Some people make your head hurt when they speak. Wow. And that was one of those moments,”

    That’s because she was speaking about a concept so far beyond your comprehension that you sprained your brain trying to reach it.

    So why does “my” side still feel the need to congregate with the Simian-American Community that makes up CNN?

    You see how even those on the left that are not far enough on the left are cannibalized by their own?

    If this is how they treat their own, why would any conservative in their right mind ever go on the leftist’s shows in attempts to educate, debate or express ANY opinion?

    It is futile. They will not nor do they wish to debate, understand any view outside their own. The time for parleys, discussions and debates are over!! We have in fact passed the point of no return when dealing with the left.

    Solodead O’Braincell and the rest of the commies over at CNN must be angling for cabinet positions in the Obama Politburo, the department of misinformation and propaganda. They sure as hell don’t respect or understand any of the freedoms that make America great, and are very eager to remove those freedoms for the common good.

    Insulting a guest is the least of O’Brien’s offenses. She insults the intelligence of the viewing audience when ever she’s on (and that says something given who actually get their news from CNN).

    My jaw dropped on this one.

    Duckworth’s a Democrat from Illinois. She won the seat from incumbent b/c the Democrat-controlled State Legislature redrew the district to give it to her.

    Interesting to see that GUNS trumps DEMS at the commie news network.
