CNN has always tilted a bit to the right. After all they are a giant corporation with their own corporate agenda, and most of their revenue comes from advertising by other corporations like Big Insurance, Big Oil and Banksters. Lately, however, CNN seems to have shifted so far right that I often forget I’m not watching Faux Noise, the Republican Ministry of Propaganda.
This is the type of segment where CNN shows itself to be every bit as bad as Fox, where we're constantly treated to the false equivalency game when talking about crazy Republican members of Congress who've gone off the rails, as Rep. Allen West does just about every time the man opens his mouth.
Host Wolf Blitzer asks RNC Chair Reince Priebus about Allen West's statements at a campaign rally where he was bashing the Affordable Care Act and the Supreme Court's ruling on the matter and made the outrageous statement that President Obama would "rather have you be his slave" for possibly allowing taxes to go up and made the ridiculous analogy that everyone should possibly have to purchase a Glock 9mm handgun if you're going to make them purchase health insurance.
And of course rather than admit or say out loud that it is the Republican Party that is the problem and won't control the flame throwing mouthbreathers within their ranks, here's Blitzer pretending there's anyone on the Democratic side of the aisle acting the same way… [emphasis added]

There is nobody in office on the Democratic side acting like Allen West, infamous for his calls for Second Amendment solutions. For Blitzer to deceptively imply otherwise is nothing but Republican propaganda. The closest we have had as Alan Grayson, but with him, there is one incontrovertible difference.
Grayson told the truth.
