CNN Anchor: ‘We’re Not Supposed To Call Americans Dumb, But…’


As Tim Graham writes at Newsbusters, CNN’s Roland Martin thinks you’re stupid:

Well, not you, specifically, just a lot of you in general. “We got some pretty dumb people,” says the Chicago-based CNN contributor, relaxing in the network’s offices at Tribune Tower between appearances discussing “broken government.” “I mean, I know we’re not supposed to call Americans dumb…but sometimes you gotta go ahead and say it.”

Voters who barely show up at the polls, tea partyers who don’t know the federal stimulus bill included tax cuts, Obama supporters who haven’t done anything since the election but whine about how little the President has accomplished–they all burn him up.

This quote runs just about a year after another CNN anchor insulted half his audience, and another (since released) referred to half his audience as looking like Nazis.

And yet, CNN executives wonder why they just can’t seem to connect in the ratings these days. I mean, I know we’re not supposed to call network heads dumb, but sometimes you gotta go ahead and say it.
