Skip to comments.CNN's Roberts Refers to Democrats as 'We'
Posted on 09/14/2008 10:13:56 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
It now makes more sense why CNN's John Roberts didn't want to talk about liberal media bias with NewsBusters at the Republican National Convention last week, for while discussing the state of the presidential campaign with former Clinton administration advisor Paul Begala Friday morning, Roberts referred to Democrats as "we." [audio here]
I kid you not.
At 6:57 AM, after showing a video of Barack Obama saying, "I don't care what they say about me, but I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and Swift Boat politics. Enough is enough," Roberts said to his guest (video embedded right, downloadable video available here, file photo):
You know, this almost looks like what happened in 2004 where the Bush campaign was very, very good at defining John Kerry in their own terms, and he was on the defensive, and he was always trying to fight back against them. Do we risk, or does the Democratic Party here risk Barack Obama becoming John Kerry II?
Do we risk?
Wow. Thanks for telling us what we already knew, John.
Hat tip: Mona Charen.
Which CNN hack suggested that Sarah needed to stay home with her new baby?
The same guy, John Roberts.
I see your truuuue colors shining through....
I wish that the MSM would simply be honest about their biases so there would be no question.
When you listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc. you know you are getting a conservative viewpoint on the issues of the day. Granted, they are commentators/talk show hosts, not so-called “hard news” reporters, but a little truth in advertising would be good.

Fire John Roberts. He is a democrat operative. He is not a “pundit”. He is supposed to be a reporter, even though I can’t find anyone on CNN that does not have an agenda going back to Bobbie frikkin Batista.
Wow. A truly disturbing mullet. How did this moron make it to the “news” desk?
early CNN 80s newsreaders were ok
Roberts is from Canada making his comment even more out of place than first presumed.
Tune into CNN and CBS at the same time.I thought this quote would be fitting...
Just watch CNN and you'll CBS all day long. --mrjesse (FReeper)
You know what, every single conservative who appears as a guest on TV from this day forward should start shoving it in their face about being democrats and biased. We’ve taken it since TV began. I see the media and the democrats spouting the same talking points every day. This should be our talking point, make them squirm first, then answer their slanted questions, and point out that they’re slanted before they answer.
All links are bad. I’m just saying!
LOL! I like some of the youtube comments about Roberts. What a jerk! He thought he was going to replace Rather and lost out to a bigger airhead than he is.
Sorry. Just follow the link to the newsbuster’s article site. The links are working there.
Now that is a funny cartoon!
Not a challenge to you but to CNN.. name one objective journalist at CNN in the 80s.
I am sorry I do not remember David Goodenow.
I believe John Roberts is the empty suit that Laura Ingraham always laughs about. She used to work with the guy at some newsroom. He’s just another blow-dry who’s in way over his hair.
OF COURSE he’s a rat. He’s at CNN.
I watched it from the beginning....including the husband wife team (can't recall names)
I could tell beady eyed Bobbie was a femmie and Bernie was left but not too rabid
in my youth (old old media) even known lefties like Walter were a bit toned down (his Vietnam admission was uncommon), nothing like Olbermann or Cooper or that prick Aaron Brown was.
I mean Mudd, Eric, Chet and David....man you never knew where they were...as a lefty youth hell I thought they were the establishment conservative...imagine that.
It's CNN; their standards are low.
Because his dad is a big deal somewhere. Same with Anderson Cooper, same with a lot of prominent people's sons and daughters. The begin in media and some stay there.
Because his dad is a big deal somewhere.
Unless his dad being a big deal in Canada somehow helps him, it looks like that might not be true. According to his Wikipedia profile, Roberts didn't even start working in the US until he was already in his 30's.
John Roberts: So, Scott, you said that — or the President said, repeatedly, that Harriet Miers was the best person for the job. So does that mean that Alito is sloppy seconds, or what?
Independent journalism is dead.
Thank GOD for the internet for without it all we’d have is liars and shills.
Any respect I ever had for news reporters has gone down the toilet.
This election is going to hurry the demise of journalism as we know it cause who wants slanted and biased reporting?
I think the cartoon should have used the middle finger...Obama’s favorite digit.
Thanks...that’s more like it.
Thanks, and a bump for later read .................. FRegards
