Just in case anyone didn't know or missed this.
CNN is NOT biased and is a fair network.
"This unsavory relationship between the media and the Democrats has long existed, but the political career of Barack Obama marks a quantum leap beyond the media’s traditional liberal preferences and biases––which in the past had at least a patina of objectivity and neutrality––to blatant advocacy, double standards, and explicit partisan hatred." -Bruce Thorton.
The consequence of media bias is a lack of democracy. If democracy depends on an informed population, a bias media undermines this.

Dude...come on...you JUST started a thread about logic and rhetoric, and now you're saying that the bias is just a lack of perspective due to the fault of heavy GOP propaganda?
Both the GOP and the Democrats and been blowing massive amounts of alarmist hyperbole up the ass of the American people for decades--slippery-slope arguments are the foundation of both parties' cliché arguments in modern politics. I guess not living in either camp since about 2009 has provided me THAT perspective.
CNN is biased just like FoxNews is biased, and for the same reason--they both favor one side of the political spectrum and spin their stories in that direction, often even publishing incorrect information in order to (or having the result of) make[ing] that favored political wing appear to be a better option.
But, no, it has nothing to do with GOP propaganda and conspiracies, it has to do with the reality that they truly are biased.

All the media is biased. Fox is just as biased for the right as CNN is for the left.
This is really self evident and shouldn't even need to be explained.
