Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz (Dem) is not happy with CNN.


Because the network had Rick Santorum on a panel but not an elected Democrat.

BIAS! Except…

For the sake of the argument, let’s take a look at who was on the CNN panel to which Schatz is referring…

  • Rick Santorum (attorney, former GOP senator)
  • Karine Jean-Pierre (national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org)
  • Linda Chavez (author and commentator who served with two Republican presidents)
  • Bakari Sellars (attorney and former Democratic state Rep. from South Carolina)

No (currently) elected Republicans or Democrats were part of the panel.

For CNN’s standards, this is a well-balanced panel, which seems to upset liberals like Schatz who are used to the network overloading each segment with leftists.
