They are reporting the facts. These tea baggers ARE anti-government, and are also anti-American. Not to mention they are just plain uneducated on the tax system. Wanna bet most of them barely pay taxes anyway?

"A Tax Foundation survey found 56% of Americans think the amount of federal income tax they pay is too high. Those most likely to feel that way, according to the survey, include those making between $35,000 and $50,000."

I'm not the one out there protesting paying my taxes. I understand that a civil society has a cost. These idiots are nothing but freeloaders. They want their benefits but don't want to pay for it.

In fact, the most ironic part of this whole tea bag bullshit is that most of these protestors benefit from the government spending that they are protesting. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

The spending level initiated and proposed by the Obama administration is so radically out of line with what we can afford that it has ignited many people to become concerned.

Newsbusters desperately tries to show a liberal bias by taking isolated instances and posting them on their website. The problem is they don't show the things that would show a conservative bias - they only count one side.

As for the spending - there many things you would do to a patient that is dying, that you wouldn't do to a healthy person. Like pounding or riping open their chest.

Remember, the spending proposed is what it takes to fix the mess Bush and his cronies left behind.

So the Johnny Come Lately's that are complaining today, where the hell have they been in the last 8 years??

It is still about inflation of the money supply and "it" doesnt about care about the political aspects of anything.

It is kind of like a law of Physics. You jump off the 50th story of the building with no life line or parachute , your gonnah make a big splash on broadway and you're gonnah be dead.

CNN is liberally biased. Not for this reason. But for many others.

Where were these protesters when Bush began increasing the debt that Clinton had cut back from the days of Reagan and Bush Sr.?

Deane is the classic conservative. When THEY spend out the ass, it's different.

CNN practices objective journalism. It's not that the right thinks, their biased, it's just they are biased when the spotlight is on the republicans. When it's the dems, strangely enough Deane and the gang hasn't much to say, right Deane.

CNN is NOT liberally biased; they are "sensationalism biased." They will report a story as liberal-slated or conservative-slated depending on what they think gets viewers' attention and thus better ratings. If you look hard enough, you can cherry pick examples showing "liberal bias," "conservative bias," "libertarian bias," whatever bias you seek. All that shows is your bias and your own agenda.

The level of CNN's reporting of "news" in recent years, along with MSNBC's, has been atrocious no matter what you think the bias is.

Yep.

Fox is better at breaking news, to me, than CNN. But they often ruin that good vibe when they start pontificating and ending every headline with a question mark.

CNN provided MUCH better balance on panels during the election, in my opinion. Then again, they still have Nancy Grace on their network. That's a wash.

Fox slants right. MSNBC slants left. CNN is trying to win the independents. That's the niche they seek. I don't think they are biased to the left at all.

Anyone that is still looking for media infotainment, aka "news," to be anything but produced in the best fiduciary interest of the owners is living under a rock.

No one source can be deemed accurate without some attempt at verification. Even live coverage of events unfolding can be misleading and often is the catalyst for misinterpretation and further amplification leading to massive distortion. The best example is watching the instant replay of a questionable play in sports, where several angles seem to indicate one set of events and that last camera angle shows the weakness in all of them, capturing the exact moment of infraction or legitimacy.

^ Exactly.

They are only in it for the almighty dollar.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as the people watching it understand that.
