In B0botland one of the top discussions – based on a Cheetos entry proclaims

Breaking: CNN’s Stunning One-Sided Coverage of Health Care Summit

The conclusion is based on a time breakdown of commercials during Obama and Dems speaking

In the first three hours televised so far, CNN interrupted:

1. Pres. Obama (D) for a Chantax / Pfizer commercial

2. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D) (entire speech) for a Liberator medical device ad as well as an ad by American Future Fund featuring a lipstick-wearing pig which advocated “Tell Congress Start Over and Get Health Care Right.”

3. Pres. Obama (D) for ads (including an ad by the Oil and Gas Industry)

4. Sen. Max Baucus (D-sorta) for ads

5. Rep. Robert Andrews (D) (entire speech) for comment

etc, etc concluding that

In a stunning display of one-sided coverage, during the first three hours of coverage of the Health Care Summit televised so far, CNN only interrupted, whether for commercial or comment, Democratic speakers.

B0bots get incensed and write CNN.

For the other side,

Afrocity posts at the Confluence a different time score

Time Score for summit

Obama spoke over 1 hour
Democrats 3 hours
Republicans 1 hour, 20 minutes.

Yep, it was a set up.

I guess that explains the more commercials during Dem speeches (4 times more?)

Me? I have no intention to defend CNN (I am snickering when B0bots get angry with it), nor do I cry for the poor uncovered GOP.

But after reading this headline

Obama: Bipartisan health deal may not be possible

I wondered for a second what was the purpose of it all was.

After seeing the B0bots so agitated today, I figured it out. A recent headline popped to mind

White House privately plots 2012 campaign run

After all, we are told

The planning for now consists entirely of private conversations, with Obama aides at all levels indulging occasionally in closed-door 2012 discussions while focusing ferociously on the midterm elections and health care reform, the Democratic sources said.

So, was this televised theater an attempt to distract the base from assessing Obama to hating the other guys?

Absolutely. Did it work?

Well, the CNN bias discussion was one of the most popular in B0botland. But not half as popular as the #1 entitled

The Real Reason Obama’s Plan Doesn’t Include a Public Option

You know the one about selling PO out to the hospital industry. So, nice try, but…FAIL!.
