Given that there will be no "View from the Left," will the "View from the Right" special be airing on a new network, CNNFOX? All bias, all bull.

More like "View from the Losers".

Ha! No wonder you dumb bastards are in third place and sinking fact.

Larry King gets his @ss kicked a few more weeks and you folks will probably be begging for 'Bamamercials. But by then, you'll be scratching your heads wondering why you were kicked off the plane.

Where is the "View from the Left?" Talk about biased media! 30 minute program for the right-wing to spew their propaganda with no counter-balance from the progressive left.

Nice job CNN. And you wonder why you are getting trounced in the ratings.

Okay, so we'll have a View from the Right reflecting on the "strength of the McCain/Palin ticket" and what's next for the conservative movement. But no corresponding View from the Left reflecting on the "strength of the Obama/Biden ticket" and what's next for the progressive movement. You do know there's another side to the political coin in this country, right? Next thing you know, CNN will be calling itself "fair and balanced."

Has CNN been bought by Murdoch?

There seems to be one side to all stories, the right wing wing-nut side. This programming decision is too blatantly biased to denied, so it will be interesting to see how they go about denying it.. silence or contorting words and their meanings.

really disgraceful and getting worse..

This is so sad. How can this network's officers look the public in the eye. You want to know why some are pushing the Fairness Doctrine to be returned? It's because of biased crap like this.

CNN could be in trouble on election night. If you
are a Democrat why watch CNN. I am so tired of
Lou Dobbs and the liberal media comments and
rants against congressional democrats. If you
want to see if the Democrats win why would you
tune into CNN. When this election is over I hope
CNN gets away from the right wing spin machine.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.
