CNBC's Blatant Liberal Bias

I happened to catch a blatant example of CNBC's uber-liberal bias last week. It was the day after Tuesday's primary elections across the nation.

Speaking of Blanch Lincoln's narrow escape from defeat by her more liberal challenger in Arkansas, "Red" John Harwood, NY Times political columnist and CNBC political reporter, solemnly gave Lincoln's re-election prospects.

On a day when Fox News featured guest pundits giving Lincoln's Republican opponent a 25 point lead in the polls, Harwood pronounced Lincoln as having "a 50-50 chance" of re-election.

How blatant and misleading can you get?

But that's what passes for political coverage on CNBC, the business cable news network owned by GE. The ailing, diversified conglomerate mis-led by Jeff Immelt reflects his politics all down the network lineup- MSNBC, NBC, and CNBC. All displaying a massive liberal tilt in political coverage and commentary.

That's why, when I watch CNBC in the morning, I mute the channel whenever Harwood has a segment, or frequent liberal guests Howard Dean or Ed Rendell appear.
