CNN's Susan Rosegan went to a "Tea Party" full of angry folks protesting everything ostensibly liberal. The tea parties were co-sponsored by conservative news network Fox. She must apologize for explaining all that!
Over shouts of, "You're not a reporter," Roesgen quickly wrapped up an interview with an attendee, then said, "I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox."
Well, she forgot CNBC (the "Rick Santelli for President" sign behind her should've reminded her!) but otherwise pretty spot-on.
So yesterday, former CNN correspondent Eileen O'Connor demanded Susan issue an apology, for getting testy with an angry nut. "She was rude to people she was interviewing," O'Connor explained, and as we all know that is never acceptable in broadcast journalism.
