CNN Plays ‘Stupid Girls’ Before Palin Segment

CNN Plays ‘Stupid Girls’ Before Palin Segment
Sarah Palin tweeted a picture of herself with her husband, Todd, at Chick-fil-A.

On Sunday, CNN played the song “Stupid Girls” before a story about Sarah Palin. The snippet of the song contained the lyric, “Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls, maybe if I act like that…”

The segment, covered by anchor Randi Kaye, was about Sarah Palin tweeting a picture of herself at Chick-fil-A. The tweet said, “Stopped by Chick-fil-A in the Woodlands to support a great business.”

Jazz Shaw wrote on Hot Air:

For the record, it’s my understanding that the hosts of these shows on the 24 hour cable news channels generally have nothing to do with the selection of the bumper music. That’s usually handled by the production staff, and a specific individual is frequently assigned to do nothing but select the musical cuts. CNN can — and probably will — easily say that it was all a coincidence and it might be hard to prove otherwise.

The most trusted name in news isn’t the only one that seems to be criticizing Palin. Former Vice-President Dick Cheney recently said he thought it was “a mistake” to put Palin on the ticket in 2008.

John McCain, as well as Cheney’s daughter, Liz Cheney, quickly came to Palin’s defense. McCain responded to the criticism with his own jab: “I respect the vice president. He and I had strong disagreements as to whether we should torture people or not.”

    Mybe they played the song because palin is a stupid girl. Liz Cheney, well she is beyond stupid.

    • Bobbytob

      You are a MORON

    • Jim T

      Interesting comment, I suppose you have been a Governor, raised your children and one being handicapped. Also selected to run for VP of this country and balanced the budget in her state. Eliminated the paying of favors and electrified dumb critics to spew such vitriol from listening to the left wing media. It just might be an honor to be called stupid by the likes of you and the other who don’t really pay attention to the news or read.

      • James P

        Well spoken.

      • Mike

        Hey, go easy on the facts will ya. It overwhelms the liberals and makes them throw temper tantrums.

      • Brad

        Jim don’t pay ant attention to Ron, Dumbocrats always yak-yak-yak when they are losing, it is just in their nature.

      @-ron———COMRADE———-Not as smart as your flea-infested flea-bagger what’s in charge in the white house that said he has visited almost all 57 states——-What a puke————–Or the likes of the oil spill in the gulf by the b.p. co.,where there were some 30 other countries that wanted to come in and SUCK up the oil,seperate it from the sea water,and then send it to the refineries,but noooooo,he gives them the JONES ACT AND THE FINGER,and tells them to shove off.To which there was DEVASTATION to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in lost revenue (not to mention the VAST NUMBERS of people that got LAID OFF) from the likes of no hotel rentals,no food sales,no clothing sales,no gasoline sales,trucking came to a stop,the MURDER of all those air,land and sea animals,the cost of the clean up,which could have been prevented in the first place,then the EXTORTION of over 20 BILLION DOLLARS to b.p. oil co..———–Not only has he gotten more people on FOOD STAMP ,but also,he has gotten more people LAID OFF —————-With his policies more people have been LAID OFF than anything that Gov. Rommney could have done.———-Real smart—————-

    • Gary L

      So are you Ron.

    • Renée

      Ron, you might want to put youself in her shoes to see if you can walk a mile in them before putting her down. I have a feeling that you wouldn’t be able to do it. The only reason why men put her down is they don’t like the fact that a woman can actually do something that only men have done before and she can STILL be a nice looking woman who doesn’t fold over and walk way do to those same cheuvinistic men. I am a wife and mother who was blessed to be able to raise my own kids and I couldn’t do what she does so don’t put down what you don’t understand.

  • TooTrue

    Hardly anyone would notice, or care, about the music if it wasn’t brought up by you to have something to write about. There might actually be some folks out there who care where Mrs Palin eats, but I doubt it.

  • Brian

    On CNN really.. The reality is nobody watches CNN so maybe 3 or 4 people saw it. Just another desperate dying gasp from the former Clinton New Network.

    • Gary L

      You are right Brian. this article was just a plug for the network.
      Speaking of plugs, CNN’s needs to be yanked.

  • dan

    I must have missed that because I don’t watch CNN….and never will.
    ditto MSnbc and other propaganda outlets….thank God for the internet

  • Brian

    Rather than report news CNN makes news. That news for me is not really news at all it simply shows one hand does not know what the other is doing. Maybe they should play, “Tear of a Clown” the next time Obama makes a speech.

    • Vigilant

      Perhaps “Y.M.C.A.”

  • 45caliber

    While I’m not a particular fan of Pallin’s, I keep remembering the 2nd rule of the American Communist Party for takeover of the US:

    “Take control of the news media and use it to prevent people from knowing what goes on in the legislative halls and to TEAR DOWN THE IMAGE OF ANY NATURAL LEADER THE PEOPLE MIGHT WISH TO FOLLOW.”

  • Thomas Paine

    When liberals can’t stand on their miserable record or defend the politics of socialism, they resort to name calling, class warfare, and race baiting. Liberalism is a disease that needs to be eradicated. Hopefully we can begin this process on Nov. 12. By the way, Dick Cheney when you use experience as a criteria for elected office, you obviously don’t know what your talking about. Exhibit A. Barack Huessein Obama.

    • Ron H

      Well written Thomas Paine!

  • Wally

    I am a minority who has the deepest respect for Gov. Palin. I hope she will become President one day and I hope that a whole bunch of us can support her as long she respresent the people. Comparatively, Sarah Palin is beyond the Bu;;@$%# of what comes out of the mouths of Obama and his deplorable Marxists/Muslims who have stolen the monies of this nation! If that isn’t reason to wake you up – just keep paying the pied piper fool!

  • Dad

    Is CNN still in business? Amazing. There is a big difference in being informed and being opinionated. Really, who watches it anymore.

  • Bill Willis

    I don’t watch the Communist News Network and really don’t care what they say or do, but that is just disrespectful.

  • jopa

    The bumper music is usually just a roll of the dice and left in the hands of the Lord as to what will be played.What selection did you say he chose??

  • Gerry

    Stupid girls is the song banner of the staff of CNN. They think that song will entice S. Palin to join them.

  • Palin16

    Sarah is a lot more qualified to be president than the Affirmative Action president, who spent only 2 years in the US Senate, was out campaigning for president that entire time, and the only time he was physically in Congress voted “present”. Please tell me how a community organizer on a salary of $12,000 a year can afford to attend Harvard Law School.

  • chuckb

    palin 16, sarah is the best candidate for president, the bolsheviks have denigrated her since she was nominated vp. she is a greater danger to them than any other candidate, otherwise they wouldn’t continue to belittle her. what surprises me is the conservative women (or so they say) who constantly bad mouth her, is it jealousy? she is highly intelligent and very attractive, a combination like that does create envy among some women.
    when i saw what the republican hierarchy did to her, i refused to send anymore donations, when they call i hang up. the republicans talk big until they get elected then they hide in the chambers never to be heard of again. palin is a threat to them also because i think she would hold their feet to the fire and make them do their duty, there’s nothing harder than trying to make a republican stand up against the bolsheviks.

    • Palin16

      I know what you mean, chuck. Sarah wanted to go after Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright but McCain’s handlers told her no, stay on the script we gave you.

    • TooTrue

      Wow! It is possible that Mrs Palin is ‘highly intelligent’ and just does a great job hiding it. Imagine what might be accomplished by her if she eliminated the smirking and what she apparently thinks are cutesy and profound comments about matters she obviously knows nothing about. And notwithstanding her ‘trade experience’ with Russia, she needs to become aware that there are other countries in this round (not flat) world. Just a modicum of displayed intelligence would do wonders for her and would probably get those ‘jealous’ conservative women to recognize her so well hidden leadership qualities.

      • Palin16

        At least Sarah doesn’t think we have 57 states and doesn’t claim that Guam might capsize.

        • tootrue

          Well, let’s be honest here. The President is in office because of her, so…

  • swampfox

    Communist News Network

  • JimH

    Maybe before Obama comes on a rousing course of “Pop Goes the Weasle” would be apropriate.
