EXTREME BIAS: CNN's Peter Hamby Exposed

Who is Peter Hamby?
Peter Hamby is employed by CNN and is currently a political researcher at CNN’s Political Ticker blog. He joined CNN in 2005 with Wolf Blitzer and The Situation Room.

Hamby graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C. where he was the contributing editor of “The Georgetown Voice,” a college weekly news magazine. Later Hamby attended NYU to pursue his Masters degree in journalism.

In 2007, Mr. Hamby developed the “mini-bureau” (a form of The Political Ticker today) for South Carolina where he covered the political primaries. Thus, his career at The Political Ticker begins.

Today he continues to blog for The Political Ticker at CNN. His Twitter account can be found here.

CNN Senior Producer Kevin Bohn attempts to link WV coal mine accident to GOP

CNN has ultimately reached a new low in "journalism."  In order to continue their on-going week long campaign against Republicans, Republican National Committee, and conservatives in general, CNN's Kevin Bohn has just added to the hit campaign.  Bohn has been looking into the political contributions for the CEO of the Coal Mine company in West Virginia. Apparently, while the rest of the media focuses on finding survivors, Bohn is more worried about where the CEO stands politically in order to link him to the GOP.

Here's a snippet of the article:
People associated with Massey Energy, along with its political action committee, donated more than $307,000 to federal candidates since the 1990 election cycle, according to an analysis from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. The center found that 91% of that money went to Republicans.

In addition, the company's CEO, Don Blankenship, has personally donated more than $60,000 since 2000 - all of it to GOP candidates and causes. 
Why is CNN making this political in the first place?  Why else would they unless they had some sort of agenda--which is clear if you simply look at all the political reporting they have done in the last week.  If CNN wanted to give out any hint of fairness, it would have also reported on the political contributions of Bernie Madoff.

Let us make note that this is certainly a tragedy, and our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

CNN's Ed Hornick gives us another anti-RNC article.

Ed Hornick pulls a Peter Hamby this week.  Actually, Ed Hornick is known to be an extreme liberal at the CNN Political Ticker.  Here's a recent example. Over 60% of stories published by this "reporter" usually showcase anyone on the right with a negative perspective. Today, we get this little peice of delight from Mr. Hornick: "RNC's bridge to conservatives on shaky ground?"

It seems like Ed Hornick and Peter Hamby have been extremely busy is making sure that the GOP nightclub "scandal" stays in the news cycle.  We reported this earlier.

And then you read the comments on the article and wonder why most commentators are against the GOP.  Because most of the stories that CNN publishes attracts the left to their "news" organization.  We guess "covering politics for CNN" means "cover the Republican Party" for Mr. Hornick.  We have certainly not seen Mr. Hornick write anything that gives Democrats a run for their money.

CNN's Peter Hamby Hammers GOP...article after article after article. Overblown?

A donor to the GOP charged a night out at a racy club to the GOP.  The GOP approved the charge of little under $2000.  Bad?  Of course, its bad!  Major major news which requires 8 completely different articles? No.  Well, unless of course you have some kind of agenda that is.  And Peter Hamby, CNN's housed liberal/progressive reporter, continues to make note of this particular event by publishing as many articles as he can.  Take a look:

Did the Charles Rangel (D-NY) get this much coverage from Peter Hamby for tax invasion?  How about John Edwards (D)?  ACORN? Wasted Stimulus money?  Climategate?  We barely saw one article from Peter Hamby for any of these events.

Now this looks like something you would see on a liberal/progressive news aggregation website like The Huffington Post.  But no, this is CNN.  And that's exactly what Peter Hamby has done to CNN's Political Ticker...turn it into a liberal/progressive news agency.
