CNN Reporter Appalled by Obama/Hitler Comparison, Flashback: Linking Bush/Hitler, Eh...Not So Much

"In (her segment) (Susan Roesgen) sought out another TEA Party participant who had a mocked-up sign in which President Barack Obama is melded with Adolf Hitler.  She immediately began arguing with this gentleman as well; amongst the things she angrily said were "Why be so hard on the President of the United States with such an offensive message?" and "Do you realize how offensive that is?"

While I agree with her that it is over the line to like Obama with Hitler, that isn't the point of this post. Newsbusters has dug up an old video of her covering a anti-Bush protest in New Orleans where someone made a float with W's head with devil horns and a Hitler mustache, and all she could say about it was this:

"City officials aren’t the only ones wondering when federal money will materialize. Catholic school girls marched on Jackson Square. They and their teachers say more money is needed to fix the levees, and they hoped the President would stop by after his meeting with business leaders. But while a look-alike showed up with a wad of cash, Mr. Bush did not."

This "look-alike" was the previously mentioned Bush head. Where was her outrage then? There was a stark difference in her demeanor between her confronting the "tea" protestor and her commenting on the Bush float.

Your honor, this is exhibit A in the investigation as to why CNN gets beat by Fox every single day and time slot for the past few years.
