According to The Hollywood Reporter, CNN has admitted that the decision to play Pink’s “Stupid Girls” ahead of a segment about Sarah Palin was a “poor Choice” and wasn’t linked to any news story.
The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story. We regret any perception that they were planned together.
Palin wanted to show her support for the chain, which has come under attack by liberal and gay groups, after Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s recent comments about gay marriage.
Mayors in Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C. have vowed to block any further expansion of the franchise into their cities, while conservatives have rallied to the chains cause by vowing to increase their patronage of the chain.
Conservatives have long admired the chain, which has always made it clear that they follow Christian principles and operates only six days a week, closing on Sunday.
CNN claimed that the music wasn’t linked to any news story, but considering how much the liberal media loves to label Palin as being dumb, it’s unlikely this was an innocent mistake.
