Sexist media lapdogs: CNN plays ‘Stupid Girls’ intro to Sarah Palin story


Posted on: March 21, 2017

As Twitchy reported on Friday, the Chick-fil-A “boycott” has been a total fail. Sarah and Todd Palin joined in this non-boycott of Chick-fil-A and united with the Twittersphere in posting pictures of a Chick-fil-A visit.

CNN, it seems, took this as an opportunity to bash Sarah Palin, playing Pink’s “Stupid Girls” as the bumper music for its Palin story. She’s so icky and stupid, natch!

CNN intro to a picture of Sarah Palin with a Chick-fil-A bag is "Stupid Girl" song. What, is she holding it upside-down?

CNN plays “Stupid Girls” bumper over Palin Story: Just a coincidence, I'm sure Coming out of a commercial break …

— Socorro English (@snoopy4ali) July 29, 2012

Well, obviously RT @ChrisRBarron: purely coincidental I am sure, right?

— Jazz Shaw (@JazzShaw) July 29, 2012

Oh, yes, it’s surely just a coincidence. We totally have a bridge to sell anyone who believes that.

More from Hot Air:

Coming out of a commercial break at 8:40 AM eastern time today, during Randi Kaye’s shift on CNN, the network “unexpectedly” chose to play the refrain from the song “Stupid Girls” by the pop singer Pink going into a story about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The two word refrain repeated over and over as the camera panned past Ms. Kaye and faded into a picture of Palin visiting a Chic-fil-A restaurant. The host then went on to a fairly stock story about the recent Chic-fil-A brouhaha, including Palin’s visit, with no reference to the introductory tune.

Yet, of course, some Smarty Pantsers are poo-pooing it.

@dmataconis I think Fallon already made it a thing.

@opechanga Maybe it was maybe it wasn't. I'm more outraged by my lack of a personal barrista than bumper music @JazzShaw

— Doug Mataconis (@dmataconis) July 29, 2012

Repeat of Fallon Bachman. RT @JazzShaw: CNN just played "Stupid Girls" as bumper music going into a story on Sarah Palin at ChicFilA.

— Scott Radford (@ScottRadford1) July 29, 2012

Remember that one? Jimmy Fallon, Obama fan boy, had “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” playing as Michele Bachmann bumper music.

The Left, naturally, finds this professional sexism to be hilarious.

Well a fact is a fact… RT @DRUDGE_REPORT: CNN Plays 'Stupid Girls' Before Story About Sarah Palin…

RT @p0tus: LMAO! CNN just played "Stupid Girl" while showing picture of Screech Palin eating at Chik-Fil-A.

Yuk, yuk, yuk! It’s totally funny to call a highly accomplished and successful woman “stupid,” as long as she’s not the “right kind” of woman. Scratch a progressive, find a sexist. Every time!

Non-sexists recognize CNN’s actions for what they are: Classless, non-professional and totally biased.

Wow. I'm stunned at the lack of respect and arrogance of CNN.

On the plus side, did anyone actually see it? If you spew sexism and no one hears it, did it even actually happen?

@jtLOL @hotairblog someone should ask them how it feels to be a distant 3rd in cable news…And why they hire immature kids 2 produce "news"

— DeckDude Matt (@TheDeckDude) July 29, 2012

Once again, members of the media prove that they are just lapdogs for the Left.

American news media is the enemy of everything great and good in our nation. Every day just proves it more.
