If you don’t get this one, watch this at 5:57 into the clip:

Red Eye Skewers MSM Tea Party Coverage!

with bonus coming out announcement from Anderson Cooper:

And this:

Update: Former newspaper reporter and now super-blogger Robert Stacy McCain makes a convincing case for nominating Susan Roesgen as the “World’s Worst TV Reporter,” although I gotta say, we former and current newspaper reporters do not really consider TV journalists to be journalists or reporters in the first place. Stacy has a lot of insights in his post that are well worth your time.

Update: Thank you, Smitty, for the headline, small story and link.

Update: Michelle Malkin on Roesgen’s history of double-standards: “Biased. Busted. Beclowned.”

Update: Hot Air has video — “CNN reporter openly contemptuous of tea parties.” Next up: dog bites man.

Update: At Ace of Spades they are calling Susan Roesgen a “big vagina lady,” and since “Ace of Spades” is a slang term for “cunt,” who would know better? Their coverage is here.

Update: Moe Lane and Red State have more.

Update: Vodkapundit has another nominee here.

Update: Gateway Pundit has valuable background on Roesgen and the crowd from someone who was there.

Update: Instapundit is pithy and brief.

Update: Gay Patriot has the scoop on “What Happens When You Slur ‘Tea Parties.'”

Update: Queer Conservative notes that Susan Roesgen attended a Tea Party and had “a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”

    Should anyone be even a bit suprised over the fact that every MSM network personality on the air to date are apparently thoroughly familiar with a homosexual pornographic definition of the phrase teabagging?
    Cnn will probably give little miss hack a promotion for this flagrant display of blatent anti-fox news anti-capitalist bias. For a so-called journalist to denigrate a competing news network on the air in such a open manner is not only completely unprofessional but pathetically classless. This behavior being displayed by one of their reporters during a live broadcast at an event like this does not do cnn any favors, quite the opposite in fact. They already have a serious image problem concerning their credibility and if they dont want to end up in the same situation as msnbc then not only should this pathetic excuse for a reporter be fired immediately they should also broadcast a live apology for this incident on all if their outlets, ASAP.

    • Um, “a homosexual pornographic definition of the phrase ‘teabagging'”? Aren’t enough women cooperative with the practice that it could be just a plain old definition? Seems like common sense to me, but I’m not in a position to know.

    Really? I need to get out more I guess.

  • Does CNN’s bias really surprise anyone these days? It seems they have really worked hard to prove they are a liberal spokesnetwork. It is especially funny to have them accuse Foxnews of being right-wing. Of the major networks, Fox is by far the most balanced in its coverage.

    Try this simple game (you can play it at home with the kids!). Do searches on various news sources for contrasting terms. I first did this using “right-wing” and “left-wing” to test the networks’ bias. My theory was that a liberal source is likely to use “right-wing” more often because that side seems odd enough to a left-leaning organization to require a modifier. As a control, I included Rush Limbaugh’s site in the comparison. He makes no secret of being conservative, so if your network’s results are the opposite of Rush’s, what does that tell you?

    The results are here:
    Do Popular News Sources Lean Left?
