Special Snowflake Soledad claims she’s so special that she’s above bias

Oh, honey. Bless your precious, little heart! As Twitchy reported, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien was recently caught using notes, on-air, from liberal blog Talking Points Memo as “research.” This resulted in side-splitting mockery from Twitter users. Bless her heart-y Soledad decided that the way to conquer this was to … utter more mock-worthy nonsense? We aren’t really sure why she chose to give this interview; we’ll wait to hear from Talking Points Memo.

@adamsbaldwin @soledad_obrien if I'm defending my integrity, I'm going to the Hollywood reporter! 5 more people will see there than on CNN

More from The Hollywood Reporter interview:

After spending several minutes excoriating O’Brien for what he called her liberal bias, Limbaugh on Tuesday posted photos on his website of her with a bumper sticker on her forehead touting the Obama-Biden ticket.

“I didn’t hear what he had to say, and it’s sort of irrelevant to what I do,” O’Brien said Wednesday. “People are entitled to do what they want, and I do what I do — which is, as a journalist, focus on the substance of someone’s argument.”

She’s a “real journalist,” people! Of course, by “substance,” she actually means only “things with which she personally agrees.” Twitter users quickly call her on this latest idiocy; how on earth does she lie with a straight face like that? While debunking, hilarious mockery also occurs.

Biased people never do @Soledad_OBrien. CNN Soledad O'Brien: 'I Don't Think I Show Bias'… http://t.co/QbSznnMn

.@Soledad_OBrien is so unbiased she blocks her conservative critics on Twitter.

Hey @Soledad_OBrien, when your biggest defender against obvious charges of bias is @mmfa, you're doing it wrong https://t.co/CFA5fzU1 #Fail

— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) August 16, 2012

In the interview, Soledad also claimed that she uses conservative blogs, like RedState, as well. Twitter users swiftly debunk that fallacious claim.

@AceofSpadesHQ check @soledad_obrien follow list. No @RedState but plenty of Daily Beast and Huff Post!

— cosmoscon (@gdthomp01) August 16, 2012

Is she a liberal? Is she a conservative? Who can tell? Except anyone checking her Twitter feed. @gdthomp01 @Soledad_OBrien @RedState

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

@TheRickWilson She said Redstate, but I'd bet money she can't name one post she has ever used. @guypbenson @Soledad_OBrien

And Ace of Spades gets right to the (bless your) heart of the matter.

I think @jonahnro wrote a book that might help @soledad_obrien de-mystify herself as regards her politics.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

There are three things going on here. 1, liberals simply lie about their political allegiances.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

This is particularly true in the media, where they want to pose as neutral truth-seekers to push a partisan/ideological agenda.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

It’s harder to create false narratives if people know there is an agenda behind them.

2, liberals lie to themselves about political leanings. They conceive of themselves as utterly unbiased, even by previous experience (!!!)

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

They conceive of themselves, as @jonahnro argues, as "above ideology," only interested in facts. But the facts they like skew left.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

Plus, they are Smarter Than You ™, dumb ol’ “unwashed masses.”

3, They suffer from the Special Little Snowflake ego-stoke syndrome, believing their mindthoughts are so original as to be uncategorizable.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

Everyone's a Special Little Snowflake, but that doesn't make us so inscrutably complex as to defy categorization.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

Participation ribbon syndrome! Soledad, honey, if everyone is special, then no one is. Sorry to burst your hugely inflated bubble.

.@soledad_Obrien thinks she's such a maverick thinker her prodigious intellect could not possibly be categorized in a one word descriptor.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

Smarter Than You ™ and Better Than You ™. Ah, the delusions created by an Ivory Tower!

I disagree. Here's one, @soledad_Obrien: Liberal. Here's another: Obamabot. Here's a third: Idiot.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

That’s a win right there.

Is there a more risible conceit than that @soledad_obrien, of all people, possesses a mind of such startling originality it defies category?

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

should have stuck to the point I've long made: People like @soledad_Obrien read all the leftwing blogs, do "research" off those blogs…

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

…and then tell you, "But I'm not a liberal. I defy easy categorization."

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) August 16, 2012

A Twitter user offers some advice for those unlucky enough to have to suffer through being “interviewed” by Special Snowflake Soledad:

Every conservative / Republican who gets interviewed by @soledad_obrien should just laugh at her when she asks them a question.

— RB (@RBPundit) August 16, 2012

And another Twitter user sums it up; non-biased? Then why the tears, sad Soledad? Evidently, she can’t really lie with a straight face.

@RBPundit The best part is how upset she seems about someone saying something bad for Obama. Yet, non-biased!! @soledad_obrien
