I Hate Air Travel

Not so much the 2 1/2 hour delay out of LaGuardia as the fact that I was forced to listen to CNN blaring at the gate. CNN has gone completely around the bend; the entire 2 1/2 hours were devoted to hysterical Republican-bashing. It’s hard to say who was worse, Jack Cafferty, CNN’s Keith Olbermann, or the formerly-sober Wolf Blitzer, now drunk on liberal triumphalism. Or the newsreader whose name I didn’t catch, who said something to the effect that John McCain is trying to show that he has the average person’s interests at heart, which, of course, is always tough for a Republican. Unbelievable.

After a half hour or so of McCaffrey hysteria, Wolf Blitzer did a fawning interview of Arianna Huffington. I was starting to wonder whether they ever allow a Republican on CNN, when, wouldn’t you know it, they finally had one on. Ron Paul, who said he hadn’t decided yet whether he’s voting for Barack Obama.

Liberals sometimes complain about Fox News, but I suspect that’s mostly because they don’t watch it. Fox tilts a bit to the right, but compared to CNN, which has careened wildly off to the left, it is straight down the middle. If I had had a rock close at hand, my fellow passengers might have been liberated from the necessity of suffering liberal propaganda along with their flight delay.

PAUL explains: I think the problem at CNN is that the reasonable voices defected to Al Jazeera.
