CNN Reporter Advocates For The State Of Lincoln



Listen as this idiot reporter, little more than a stenographer for the federal government, mentions the "State of Lincoln." Wow, where was I when that happened? Did I miss something? I gotta get out more. Perhaps it was a Freudian slip?

This woman (who has been convinced that she's a reporter), is obviously not "reporting" anything. She's spinning and advocating for the current administration while she mocks the folks attending this Tea Party rally.

Notice the headline says "CNN Reporter Harassed At Tea Party." Actually, it appeared to me she was the one doing the harassing - continually interrupting the man she was interviewing, mocking comments, etc. And then the moronic comment about Fox News - she's a real professional, ain't she? What an utter buffoon and embarrassment.

(You would think with the unemployment numbers being what they are, CNN could at least find someone who knew what State they were in. Is there any wonder their ratings are in the basement?)

"Land of Lincoln," of course, is the long-time phrase on Illinois license plates; I think the young lady was simply using that metaphor because the gentleman she was talking to had made his point about Lincoln.

I think she was over-hyped, unprofessional, and a moron.
