Rarely is there as transparent an example of liberal media bias as the tantrum thrown by CNN’s Susan Roesgen yesterday while “reporting” on a tea party, but the full extent of her bias only comes into light when you look back at her attitude toward anti-Bush protesters.
In video posted by Paul Chesser from yesterday’s CNN broadcast, Roesgen harassed a man who had a sign in which Obama was portrayed as a fascist with a Hitler mustache. “Why be so hard on the President of the United States though with such an offensive message?” an indignant Roesgen hollered.
Yet back in 2006, when she was covering protests against the Bush administration’s response to Katrina, she jokingly referred to this photo of a man wearing a mask with devil horns and a Hitler mustache as a Bush “look-alike.” (Video available at NewsBusters).
Personally, I don’t think it’s appropriate — or helpful — for any protesters to portray the President in such a light, but this isn’t about me. The point is that when an anti-Bush protester assailed our last president with offensive imagery, Roesgen viewed it as harmless fun, but when somebody dared portray Obama in a similar fashion, she sanctimoniously attacked the protester on national television.
UPDATE: More behind the scenes footage of Roesgen at the Chicago tea party here.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
