Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters was on top of this. Remember when during a debate Mitt Romney made that completely innocuous comment that he wasn't "concerned about the very poor" because they have a safety net? And remember how predictably the Democrat-media complex took that phrase out of context and milk it for all they could. Apparently the milking included a high five during a news report on CNN.
After anchor Soledad O'Brien skewered Romney for his comment, co-anchor Roland Martin goes "Good job, Soledad." And they do a high five! On the air.
To add ridiculous insult to injury, after Sheppard tweets that Roland and O'Brien gave each other a high five over their "objective" news story on Romney, O'Brien had the chutzpah to immediately tweet back: "Um not true. At all." To which Sheppard suggest she watch the actual video of herself high-fiving Roland!
That was just over two weeks ago. Yesterday, while covering the Whitney Houston funeral, O'Brien gets some words from singer Roberta Flack and slimy race-hustler Jesse Jackson. At the end of the small exchange, Flack offers O'Brien an "Obama bump". (As if Barack Obama originated the fist bump!) O'Brien happily returns the gesture.
Look, Roberta Flack could be a Kool-Aid drinkin' Obama lackey and hang out with the likes of Jesse Jackson all she wants. But if O'Brien wants viewers to think she's an objective reporter, she should practice hiding the Obama-love and Republican-hate just a liiiittle more.
P.S. In an ironic twist of fate, less than a week after Roland Martin offered a high-five on air to a co-anchor for skewering a Republican candidate -- an act the suits at CNN were obviously perfectly fine with -- Roland was suspended by those CNN suits for ... wait for it: tweeting supposedly "homophobic" comments during the Super Bowl.
Doesn't the sick twisted world of liberalism make Alice in Wonderland look perfectly normal?
