Here is an example of CNN's bias towards the right in their use of subtle propaganda techniques. It's an ad announcing CNN's coverage of the start of the 110th Congress, "The First 100 Hours." It ran on all of CNN's programming, although this clip was made from the broadcast of Wolf Blitzer's Late Edition, January 7, 2007:
"You voted; they won" (with the graphic of the Democratic party's iconic donkey).
The use of red throughout the ad (better appreciated in slow-motion) reinforces that this is a pitch to conservatives, and that CNN is "on Your side."
This ad best demonstrates the need for reinstating the 'fairness doctrine,' and re-regulating the broadcast industry.
