This Is CNN: A News Network To Meet All Your Right Wing Bashing Needs UPDATE: An Audio Error?

Sure they're way behind MSNBC in being the anti-Fox News but it's not for lack of trying.

After giving the White House Communications Director 9 minutes to whine about Fox News (she said they were an arm of the Republican Party), CNN ran a promo for Anderson Cooper's show.

What were they promoting? His on the scene coverage of breaking news? His ability to get the most important news makers of the day on the show? No. CNN, that bastion of journalism, was proudly boasting they are where idiot liberals go to get their talking points.

The new promo, by contrast, consists of a woman's voice, pitching Cooper's show as, essentially, a liberal alternative to Fox News: "I'm a lifelong Democrat," she says, "and that's why I watch Anderson Cooper." Hmmm. The voice goes on to say that Cooper is the person she can turn to hold "right wing" conservatives accountable.

Yes, thank God someone is holding the 'right wing' accountable. I mean what with us controlling the White House and both houses of Congress, we right wingers really need to be kept in check.

Oh wait.

Maybe CNN and MSNBC would have better luck in the ratings if they actually tried to be journalists and not a Praetorian Guard for Obama.

Update: CNN says it was a mistake in the audio.

The Time blogger who posted on it makes it sound like it's his fault. I heard the same spot during the Howard Kurtz show and had the same reaction. I tried to find the promo online yesterday but couldn't so I didn't post anything. I don't know if my TV isn't stereo or not (I'm pretty sure it is) but this is CNN's problem, not the people who heard it.

The 'correct' spot is below the fold.

The version that originally aired only had the female (left wing) track.

Maybe I'm just sensitive but the 'right wing' sounds louder.
