    BRAVISSIMA, Carol! You did the right thing by stopping Fisher from spreading falsehoods. It's about damn time that reporters like you stood up to you interviewees when they are outright lying. I'm hoping that you, Solidad and Candy have started a trend!

    Carol, thank you so much for standing your ground with Romney's advisor, the former Lt Governor of Massachusetts.
    She had nothing to say and knew it. She was trying to defend a bunch of bunk that no informed voter would believe.
    You called it dead on......Romney was not specific and did not say anything, but dance around the issue.
    Great Work, please keep calling these people out the way you did a few weeks back with those Koch brother dudes who made that video and tried to say they did not have an agenda.

    Yes this flaky liberal (pardon the redundancy) cut off the man and said "That's just not true." before the man had made the statement! Liberals like this whose bias is more important than having impressionable young people hear the hard reality of the consequences of their behavior betray those young people and their family when a world's wickedness is attacking them.

    But anyone who watches such programming anymore than to see what we're up against, as I just did, should expect dangerous liberal propaganda. They betrayed the American people in the failure to honestly vet the current President and they undermine moral civilization at every turn. Our country, and our world, would be so much better off if there were still honest investigative reporters who served their readers and watchers, rather than the newsroom celebrity wannabes that propagate the liberal elite agenda.

    CNN did the right thing by cutting off the lies from the anti-gay person. These anti-gay Hate Cults just lie and lie and lie some more. NO legitimate media outlet should give these anti-gays the ability to spread their anti-gay Hate Speech any further.

    Yeah that's right carrotman, telling young people and the uninformed public about the deadly consequences of the homosexual lifestyle is "hate"; the real HATE is those like you who would keep the truth from impressionable young people even when it risks their health and lives (physical, psychological and spiritual) because you were willing to keep them ignorant.

    Carol, I offer my sincere kudos to you on this matter. However, I have a serious problem with much of your flippant and gratingly obnoxious side bar bathroom gossip style remarks. They are definitively lacking in any true journalistic integrity. You desparetely need to work on keeping your inane banter in check and deliver a more authentic tone of sincerity and a consistently respectful of the audience on air persona. I hope with all my heart that you consider this critique with an open mind and proactive responsiveness. It would be much preferred to see you reach even greater degrees of respectability than to succumb to tabloid-esque mediocrity...

    Like the need to control guns we also need certain restrictions on speech to prevent damaging opinions that are rooted in hate and deceit

    This issue was dealt with many years ago in Canada when Scouts Canada adopted a policy used almost universallyin this country, which is one of non-discrmination on protected human rights grounds which includes sexual orientation (for cubs, scouts, guides and leaders etc). And the world never came to an end. Good grief, isn't time to make the world of chlildren and youth an inclsive one rather than continue to separate the world into "them and us?"

    Carol please just ask the questions I can't and leave the melo-dramatic reactions to entertainers.I find this to be true in most of your reporting of the news.It would berefreshing if you just "reported" the news of the day and not twist and turn and react to it.I am uncomfortable watching you modulate your facial expressions everytime you read a story.

    LGBT?... is that right?... It does sound better than lesbian and gay.. which does sound better than perverted. Kind of how fetus (which means child) sounds better than baby in regards to abortion.. which sounds better than murder... (definately your choice).
    CNN .. sounds better than propaganda.. sounds better than brain washing for those who don't know they are in the process of being imprisoned..

    Oh, nevermind.. I feel better now thanks to the latest news on "sushi".. It's all o.k. now...
    No. What was I thinking... It's not o.k.

    I'm a student @ ITT Tech. A few students including myself were watching your broadcast about "the gay Gestapo" and we were all wondering "What would people think about having the first "Openly Gay" (male or female) president in the White House?
