Jeanne Sahadi Shows CNN Bias
Today CNNMoney.com senior writer Jeanne Sahadi gave what on the surface appears to be a fair and balanced analysis of the competing tax plans being floated by Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain. You can view it here:
However, whether she knows it or not, Sahadi gives the reader a slanted view of the two proposals and of economic theory in general, by citing quotes and findings from The Tax Policy Center as pad for her article.
Two minutes of research is all that is required to discover that The Tax Policy Institute is little more than an arm of the Brookings Institution, a left of center think tank in Washington DC.
Now I'm not sure if Ms. Sahadi has the number of The Heritage Foundation in her Rolodex, but I'm guessing that someone from that think tank would have made a decent counterweight to what comes across as a fairly one-sided view of the effects of taxation and tax cuts, including quotes from Tax Policy Center director, Clinton appointee and tax increase advocate Len Burman.
As a young journalist, struggling to find work it's upsetting to me that someone who is employed by such a high profile news organization can get away with this kind of biased reporting.
This stuff isn't obvious upon reading the article, but it's exactly this type of sneaky journalism that has given much of the media its liberal reputation over the last 30 years.
Sahadi needs to learn that just because an organization is billed as "non-partisan" doesn't mean that it's not pushing a political agenda.
