At tonight’s presidential press conference, CNN reporter Dan Lothian exposed his bias against the GOP candidates regarding their support for waterboarding. He asked Obama if he thought that several GOP candidates were “uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible” for expressing that waterboarding is not torture and giving it their support. Obama jokingly quipped in reply “That’s a multiple choice question, isn’t it?” before declaring that the GOP candidates were just wrong:
Wow, you’d think Lothian would have been more subtle about his bias, especially since he is strictly functioning as a news reporter. I would have expected a question framed with “do you agree with…?” or simply “what are your thoughts about this?”. But he exposed himself as many others have, and now we know.
