Absurd: Sexist CNN claims ‘Stupid Girls’ slam on Palin was unintentional


Another day, another glaringly obvious reason for CNN’s dismal ratings.

Yesterday Twitchy reported that the lapdog media network played the Pink song “Stupid Girls” as bumper music for a segment on Sarah Palin’s recent visit to Chick-fil-A. Today the network confirmed that it believes viewers are “stupid girls” too.

“The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story,” a CNN spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. “We regret any perception that they were planned together.”

A terrible coincidence! Truly regrettable choice! Is there anything CNN won’t try to spin?

The only thing the floundering network regrets is that it got caught out there. Just like when Obama fan boy Jimmy Fallon played “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” as Michele Bachmann’s bumper music. This would have been a more accurate apology:

Conservatives aren’t buying that the sexist slam was unintentional.

Hey, CNN. Not one likes a lying, sexist Democrat shill. No, really, almost nobody does.

Oh, wait. CNN still has a few progressive viewers. Like conservatives, they’re disgusted … but only because CNN apologized.

Love CNN for the song selection on the Sarah Palin segment…but grow a damn backbone! Dont apologize! http://t.co/0FqigAgE Via @huffpostgay

Hey @CNN – It was inappropriate to play "Stupid Girls" as bumper music for Palin. Had it been two or more dumb bitches, you'd have been fine

Now you have to apologize for honesty? RT @TPM: CNN: "Poor choice" to play 'Stupid Girls' ahead of Sarah Palin segment http://t.co/vJ1Vy7cB"

Not sure why CNN is regretting the decision to play "Stupid Girls" by Pink for Palin segment. It's a great theme song for her!

It’s no wonder these are CNN’s viewers — the network bends over backwards to deliver the liberal bias and sexist attacks they crave.
