It was Fox News against the world about tea party coverage, but CNN “Lou Dobbs Tonight” host showed he’s just as disgusted with some of the coverage as many conservatives are.
“The national liberal media gets so snarky, it can’t stand itself ,” Dobbs said. “Then all these too cute by half ideologues trying to pose as some sort of objective journalists. You know, these fools, start falling off their little high horses – it’s fun to me. But, I’m pretty sure you’re going to see a lot more snarky little nastiness coming out of the national liberal media.”
Dobbs, in his own brand of populist outrage showed his ire against the media for dismissing the April 15 protest.
“They can’t accept that the American people – that the vast majority of American people are through with the ideological nonsense – whether it’s on the left or the right. And they’re sure through with the national liberal media who think you know they’re just a heck of a lot smarter than everybody else in this country.”
Janeane Garofalo appeared on MSNBC’s April 16 “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” where she unleashed an ugly attack, calling the protesters “a bunch of teabagging rednecks.” Dobbs unleashed his own assault on her commentary, the video of which appeared on the Web site OlbermanWatch.com.
“Get ready for a lot of vitriol, a lot of pure – I mean, this Janeane Garofalo – who by the way, I don’t know what she does other than appear on left-wing venues and programs like Keith Olbermann’s and then just sort of whine and snark – and she’s a one-woman, you know – hate event. She’s just nasty – nasty piece of business, my Lord. And to be on Keith Olbermann’s show, you know a lot of meds running around there and his bile spewing everywhere.”
Despite some of the disparaging coverage from CNN, including Anderson Cooper, Dobbs explained that the media are determined to prop up the policies of Barack Obama.
“Their responsibility as a media outlet is to be a conduit for the Obama administration,” Dobbs added. “They think they are the bastion of, you know, of the 21st century socialistic thought. They’re as left-wing as it can get and they apparently are hell-bound to be the conduit for the Obama administration – the venue for left-wing politics and zaniness in this country and power to them, because the farther they go in that direction, the more irrelevant – if they’ve been relevant at any point – but the more irrelevant they’ve become.
