CNN star caught reading liberal blog on air

'She is a puppet. Somebody's mouthing for her'

CNN's Soledad O'Brien reads from the left-leaning Talking Points Memo during an interview with a Mitt Romney adviser Aug. 13, 2012

CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien is making headlines today after being snagged on the air reading from a leftist blog during an interview.

While filling in for regular host Anderson Cooper Monday night, O’Brien was talking with Virginia House of Delegates Republican member Barbara Comstock, who is a senior adviser for the Mitt Romney campaign.

O’Brien was seen reading from a printout by the left-leaning Talking Points Memo.

Specifically, the piece used for her notes was titled “The Myth Of Paul Ryan The Bipartisan Leader,” posted Monday at 6:08 p.m. just a few hours before O’Brien’s interview.

“CNN, if you want to know why nobody’s watching,” said radio host Rush Limbaugh as he analyzed O’Brien.“You want to make the claim that you guys are objectively in the middle?”

Limbaugh continued,“Soledad O’Brien is doing McCarthyism, Charlie McCarthyism. She is a puppet. Somebody’s mouthing for her. She doesn’t know what to ask unless she goes to a liberal blog for guidance, has to print it out and use it on the air, and she’s one of their stars.”

According to Viral Read,“She never cited it, but used its contents. In fact, she claimed to be reading a direct statement from Senator Wyden’s office, but was in fact reading this excerpt from the blog:‘The Romney campaign’s lone evidence that Ryan is a bipartisan leader amounts to a vague blueprint he co-wrote with Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) late last year that mirrors key elements of his Medicare plan. Wyden voted against Ryan’s budget and said Romney’s characterization of their work was dishonest.

‘Governor Romney is talking nonsense. Bipartisanship requires that you not make up the facts,’ Wyden’s office said in a statement.‘I did not ‘co-lead a piece of legislation.’ I wrote a policy paper on options for Medicare. Several months after the paper came out I spoke and voted against the Medicare provisions in the Ryan budget. Governor Romney needs to learn you don’t protect seniors by makings things up, and his comments sure won’t help promote real bipartisanship.”

Newsbusters reported that less than twelve hours after getting caught reading from the liberal blog, O’Brien was back on the air this morning echoing Democrat talking points.

In fact, things got so hot with former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu on CNN’s “Starting Point” that he ended up saying,“Put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead when you do this.”

Sununu To Soledad O'Brien: You are aiding and abetting his dishonesty. Paul Ryan and Republicans did pass a bill to take care of the drought problem, but it's the Democratic Senate that hasn't passed it. And so when you show that clip and you show the President lying through his teeth, then you are aiding and abetting a distortion.

Sununu To Soledad O'Brien: 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. If you're going to mouth what comes out of the White House. Put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead when you do this.

It is not a lie, CNN proves it to be true day in and day out. The proof is right there on video tape. No need to cry anything. Yes them facts and pictures, they are some very inconvenient things for you liberal folks.
