    I was watching CNN this morning and was very disappointed and offended when the CNN news anchor, when reporting that President Obama was in Ireland getting in touch with his relatives, made a very derogatory little laugh. She did it more than once when reporting this story. It sounded as if she didn't believe that the President had relatives in Ireland. I don't know her name. I was watching CNN between the hours of 10:00-11:00 am EDT. I've always thought of CNN as a news network that is one of the most unbiased. It may sound like a small thing, but it was the way she said it. As I said, she did it every time she mentioned the President's visit. I was very disappointed in her professionalism.

    She's one of those brainwashed evil GOP Faux News on CNN as anchor with sarah Palin agenda. Gloria Borger, John King, David Gregan or whatever name they call him. Each time this little white woman; Gloria Borger has anything about Pres. Obama will see her evil face light up and will be jumpy constantly to dig it in to Pres. Obama with an her usual evil smile.
