Media mockery: Soledad O’Brien meets Biden’s ‘back in chains’ comment


Ha! When two news items collide, the result is spectacular. As Twitchy reported, Vice President Biden shamefully said that the GOP was “going to put you back in chains,” while giving a speech in Danville, Va., today. And yesterday, Soledad “Wikipedia is my source” O’Brien was caught on-air using a printout of an email consisting of, well, talking points from liberal blog Talking Points Memo.


She hasn’t been fired … yet. But the awesome Ace of Spades is taking her to task as only he can. Other Twitter users join in and the results are gold, Jerry. Gold.

@mkhammer You are made of hatred and lies.

@AceofSpadesHQ Wikipedia: where CNN hosts go when Talking Points Memo fails them.

Next up on Soledad, why are Romney and Ryan injecting racial themes & code-words into this campaign?

@mkhammer so racist

#tonightonsoledad, the new social of "Presidents With Benefits." Is this the way to his heart, or am I just being a fool, like my mom says?

#tonightonsoledad, my heart-radio is sending out 50,000 watts of pure blazing love for Barack Obama.

It is my mission to further The Truth. "The Truth" is what I call Barack Obama.

#tonightonsoledad, I gaze wistfully at an old Obama poster and practice signing my name "Soledad O'Brien-Obama" (See how it rolls!!!)

Tonight on Soledad, the Top Five Vacation Destinations I'd like to go with Barack Obama.

@MelissaTweets @JammieWF racist. Cite: Everyone thinks so.

Which brings it all back to Biden’s deplorable, race-baiting “chains” remark.

"Half true." RT@DrewMTips: I dare @politifact and @GlennKesslerWP to "fact" check Biden's "put you back in chains" line.

No need! Soledad has already “fact checked.”

Politifact: We rate Biden's chains claim as "mostly true." (Via a commenter on a blog I use for research)

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 14, 2012

The highest, independent fact-checking authority available — Barack Obama — has already said he has "no problem" with Biden's chains claim

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 14, 2012

She so wishes it was fact checking with benefits! Keep it coming, Twitter. Once again, you are doing the job that the “real journalists” won’t do.
