Back in March Soledad O’Brien attempted to rewrite history to protect Barack Obama and was roundly criticized for it. As noted back then, O’Brien is very obviously an Obama/liberal sycophant yet she insists otherwise.
“I don’t think I show bias in my TV show. I think I am aggressive with people about trying to find the facts behind what they say,” O’Brien said. “Am I a liberal or conservative? I’m neither. Like most Americans, I find politics very frustrating. Like most Americans, I’d like to hear from politicians the facts. That is what drives me.”
Self-deception can be very cruel.
In an exchange with Romney representative Barbara Comstock O’Brien was seen reading from TPM talking points
Following her being caught reading from TPM talking points she largely denied it
“Editorially, I was not reading off the Talking Points Memo.”
Then O’Brien get into an exchange with Romney rep former Governor John Sununu and he just let her have it
Rush Limbaugh has the transcript:
SUNUNU: I have Congressional Budget Office report right here.
SUNUNU: It’s reduced revenue.
O’BRIEN: I can tell you what it says!
SUNUNU: Yes, it cuts a reduction in the expected rate of growth, which you know.
SUNUNU: No, ma’am!
O’BRIEN: Not cutting budgets to the elderly. Benefits will be improved.
SUNUNU: He gutted it.
O’BRIEN: The focus is on hospitals. The focus is on health insurance.
SUNUNU: He gutted the program by $711 billion —
SUNUNU: — and the fact is he reduces services.
O’BRIEN: The expected rate of growth is being cut!
SUNUNU: Soledad, stop this! All you’re doing is mimicking the stuff that comes out of the White House and gets repeated on the Democratic blog boards out there.
O’BRIEN: (snorts) I’m telling you what FactCheck.com (sic) tells you.
SUNUNU: If you’re going to mouth what comes out of the White House, put —
O’BRIEN: I’m gonna… I’m telling you what CBO tells you.
SUNUNU: Put —
O’BRIEN: I’m telling you what —
SUNUNU: Put —
O’BRIEN: — CNN’s independent analysis does.
SUNUNU: I’ve got the CBO report right here!
O’BRIEN: And I’m telling you what it says.
SUNUNU: Put an —
O’BRIEN: I’ve read it several times.
SUNUNU: Put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead when you do this.
On July 24, the Congressional Budget Office sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, detailing the budget impact of repealing the Affordable Care Act. If Congress overturned the law, “spending for Medicare would increase by an estimated $716 billion over that 2013–2022 period.”
As for O’Brien not being biased, I’ve never seen her go to bat for any Republican. Ever.
