Visual Proof of CNN's Liberal Bias?

First off.... I couldn't care less about a perceived bias in the media. But when I browsed to CNN.com this morning, this kind of caught my eye. On the right is a screen capture from about 9:45 this morning. At 9:53, CNN had changed the image. Anyway, just thought this was funny!

That wall in the photo (or whatever it is) also looks like a large S -- as in SS

Re: Visual Proof of CNN's Liberal Bias?

that is a direct screen capture off of CNN this morning that i took myself. It was down about 5-10 minutes after that. I've worked in Media before, there is NO way that was an accident.

Dang! Somebody is fired! That Idiot should have put that up on another web site. Someplace where it wouldn't be taken down. But it still made me laugh though!

Re: Visual Proof of CNN's Liberal Bias?

I thought it was pretty much understood that cnn was liberally biased, as fox news is conservatively biased...

Re: Visual Proof of CNN's Liberal Bias?

I'm not arguing one way or another. I just thought it was funny to see how openly biased they are. (I agree about Fox, it's almost laughable when you watch their version of "Fair and Balanced") it's one thing to present a Democratic slant, another to select a photo of an acceptance speech that clearly looks like the VP nominee is giving the ol' sig heil.

Re: Visual Proof of CNN's Liberal Bias?

Just to be clear, the picture of Hitler was edited in by the OP, correct? Because honestly, I don't see any big deal with the picture. She's gesturing, not much more than that.

On a side note, every speech Ive seen at a convention (went to bed before Pelin last night, but saw some of Rudy's stumble fest.) every speaker I start imagining Dwight Schrute doing his speech to the paper folks. BLOOD ALONE MOVES THE WHEELS OF HISTORY ::bang bang bang:: ::Shake fist:: (This isn't a Republican vs Democrat thing. I vote for whoever slams the podium the most and waves their fists.

No, I added the Hitler pic just in case people didn't know what I was talking about. Everyone in my office that i have shown just the Palin pic reacted immediately, so I thought I wasn't the only one. I think juxtaposing the two poses plants a suggestion in the unconscious of readers. I know when I was putting together newscasts and various graphics, I was always trying to slip things like that past my supervisors.

You mean the conversations between the two Republican pundits they had on?
