I have to learn to stop getting outraged at media bias.Â While doing cardio at the gym today, pretty intensely so I couldn’t follow the close-captioning as closely as I would have liked, I saw a CNN segment on unrepentant terrorist William Ayers whom the “news” network identified as a ’60s radical.Â As if most ’60s radicals tried to blow up federal buildings, including the Pentagon and regretted only that they didn’t set off enough bombs.
It wasn’t just that CNN called Ayers a mere radical, it was also that underneath that label, they said Palin tried to tie him to Obama.Â As if he were just a guy in the president-elect’s neighborhood and not someone with whom Obama associated on a regular basis in the 1990s and quite possibly until he began service in the United States Senate.
Yes, Sarah Palin did tried to tie Ayers to Obama.Â The two men did indeed have an ongoing relationship, a relationship which that very network acknowledged last month.Â But, by using the line about the then-GOP vice-presidential nominee’s attempts to raise the issue, CNN made it appear a mere campaign tactic rather than a real relationship.
The more I watch CNN, the more it seems that that network is not trying to cover the president-elect, but instead cover for him.
