CNN’s coverupage of Obama’s collectivist statement

(Note: Here is the definition of coverupage.)

Remember how CNN is supposed to be the “objective” cable news channel, as distinct from MSNBC and Fox, which are partisan?

CNN did not report Obama’s stunning “You didn’t built that” speech until four days after he had made it. And when they did report it, it was only in the context of the Romney campaign’s attack on it. Thus CNN did not consider the speech newsworthy in itself.

As a commenter at puts it:

There is no question that the corrupt news media has their thumb on the scales of American politics with very significant impact. Their spiking of stories with impunity is often more insidious than their bias on the stories they do cover.
