Default anderson cooper needs to go

We all know CNN and their inability to provide us with any semblance of objective news coverage. Many have come to accept that CNN will live down to their expectations. Their “coverage” of the tea parties was their usual leftist mockery of anything that takes a view contrary to their own. But they charted new territory this time. I won’t go into most of it – its all “out there” to see for yourself. Rather, I will focus on a comment that anderson cooper made that dwarfs the Imus incident and resulting firestorm.

CNN's anderson cooper insulted the grass-roots Tea Parties that blanketed the United States this week by making a lewd joke about the protesters. His exact words, in response to a guest who said Republicans are still searching for a voice to address the nation's economy, were, "It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging." The comment parallels the "tea-bagging" term commonly used in the homosexual community to describe a sex act in which testicles are inserted in someone's mouth. The comment can be heard at .50 in this video…


Of course, no “mainstream” media source will cover the remark or comment on it, and the thread in New Republic has been pulled. So here’s some “coverage” to prove I didn’t just make this up…

You get the idea.

IMHO, this warrants a response from Americans not only for the vulgarity, but for the unrestrained attack of Americans merely expressing their opinions. Don’t let them get away with it. Contact CNN @

And express your opinion. I did…

CNN needs to fire anderson cooper. Your network redefines the term bias, and most don't watch as a result. But cooper consistently charts new territory. The "tea bagging" remark was purposeful and disqualifies him from further "journalistic" credibility. If CNN actually seeks to present news as news with any shred of credibility, they need to jettison those incapable of doing so. Imus was fired for a lesser "offense".

“Thanks for listening”.
