CNN PRODUCERS TOLD ON-AIR GUESTS: GET ANGRY
Mon Sep 12 2005 12:42:11 ET

After weeks of intense Katrina coverage from the main press, LA TIMES guru and former CNN host Michael Kinsley divulges that CNN was coaching guests to artificially enhance emotions!

Kinsley writes:

"The TV news networks, which only a few months ago were piously suppressing emotional fireworks by their pundits, are now piously encouraging their news anchors to break out of the emotional straitjackets and express outrage.

This morning I was watching CNN (I have GOT to re-align the satellite dish soon!) and they were discussing how emotional the news-people were during Katrina.

They were even interviewing people to gauge the reaction to the emptional outbursts of the media.

Pitiful. I don't care if you laugh, cry, or dance on Ted Kennedy's grave - just report the news for me, mmkay?

Liberals love infusing emotion into politics. It overrides reason.
