And this is unbiased Journalism???

Though the video poster entitled this "CNN Reporter Harrassed at Chicago Tea Party," the reporter seems to be the one doing the harrassing in this clip (Correction: that was the title of the other, not-as-clear clip I first posted)

And as I watched, I kept hearing the voice of one of my Journalism instructors looping continuously in my head from the first day of class, talking about our job as reporters, "I don't care what you think, your job is to report the facts of whatever you are covering." I guess that only applies to some people.

And IMHO, this little outburst from a supposed, professional, unbiased journalist should really give the network and its viewers pause:

"It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing, conservative network Fox...and I think this is really not family viewing."

Really Susan, you should think about giving up this "reporting" gig and switch to Op-eds or something.

I think there are very few adults in the western world today who are emotionally mature.

I'd tend to agree with you on that one ea. I do not support anything for which the Republican Party stands, but in the interest of that pesk little 1st Amendment thing, I agree with their right to have their say - and loudly, just as the legions of Obots had theirs.

If this reporter wanted to school those protesting she should choose another venue. Hell, write a blog or something!!! Totally unprofessional.
