  • No! These are genuine people who are extremely worried about the future, not just for themselves but for ALL of us. Calling them MOBS is ridiculous! People are angry and scared for darn good reasons! I think that most of us are worried nowadays...

  • CNN is spouting the party-line. When the libs protest, it's freedom at work. When anyone else protests, it's mob action.

    No, this isn't orchestrated or manufactured anger. This is real. We want our representatives to actually represent us. And we don't want governement health-care. We don't want more debt. We don't want the feds in our bank accounts or medical records.

  • CNN has a liberal bias just like the other networks and of course they are going to "report" this as contrived mobs. When in fact many Americans are mad as heck and are voicing their opinion and letting their legislators know it. The American people are not being represented and their bulking at what their own congressmen and senators are doing.

  • While I don't take anything I hear on CNN seriously because of their liberal bias and slant, as for having the "right" to say what they do, they're protected under the First Amendment (freedom of speech). Just as I have the right to say how I feel about the White House being taken hostage by domestic terrorists.

  • CNN and other networks are being way to biased. There is no way these town hall meetings are biased. Americans are not stupid, we know that this healthcare bill is going to cost EVERYONE money and benefits.
    One politician is quoted as saying that those protesting at these town hall meetings are "too well dressed to be believable" Well, I am well dressed, and I am educated, having worked in the healthcare field for almost 20 years. I can tell you from the healthcare providers point of view that your visits to the dr will be limited, as will what can be prescribed to you, and there will be a shortage of healthcare providers. Sad but I swear to GOD it IS true!

  • CNN is just a liberal mouthpiece for the White House. They refuse to admit that people are just angry at having these socialized unconstitutional policies crammed down their throats and so they are protesting it, like every American has a right too. Btw, I don't watch CNN, I watch FOX because the reporting is less biased. I do look at the CNN website once in a while and I am amazed at the news that is NOT reported there.
