I watched the very same debate on TV live, and next I was astonished at the different people’s various opinions, even though I had honestly watched also the same debate. It was clear to me that CNN was bashing Sarah Palin , trying to falsely influence other people’s opinion negatively too. This was very dishonest, unprofessional of them still too. SO ARE THE OTHERS LIKE TIME WHO ALSO DO THIS.

CBC News apologized Sunday for publishing a column about Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, conceding that it was “viciously personal.”

More than 300 people complained to the CBC ombudsman about a column that ran on Sept. 5 on CBCNews.ca by award-winning freelance writer Heather Mallick.

The article, “A mighty wind blows through Republican convention,” reportedly said Ms. Palin was chosen to appease the party’s “rural,” “unlettered” “white trash” base and said that the vice-presidential nominee looked like a “porn actress.”

CBC News publisher John Cruickshank said in a letter that the public broadcaster erred in judgment.

 CBC Ombudsman,  ”  he objects that many of her most savage assertions lack a basis in fact,” Mr. Cruickshank wrote.

“Mallick’s column is a classic piece of political invective. It is viciously personal, grossly hyperbolic and intensely partisan. And because it is all those things, this column should not have appeared on the CBCNews.ca site.”

It is about time now, Better late than never too

I have no problem with it.

Sarah Palin Once Blessed Against ‘Witchcraft’  
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Sept. 24) – A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from “witchcraft” as she prepared to seek higher office.
The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from “every form of witchcraft.”
“Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan,” Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Palin’s shoulders. “Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. … Use her to turn this nation the other way around.”
Palin filed campaign papers a few months later, in October 2005, and was elected governor the next year.
Palin does not say anything on the video and keeps her head bowed throughout the blessing. The Republican vice presidential candidate was baptized at the church but stopped attending regularly in 2002.
A spokesman for the McCain campaign declined to comment. A person who answered the phone at the Wasilla church confirmed the video was from May 2005 but declined further comment.
Palin was baptized Roman Catholic as a newborn.
Pentecostals are conservative in their reading of the Bible. Unlike most other Christians — including most evangelicals — Pentecostals believe in “baptism in the Holy Spirit.” That can manifest itself through speaking in tongues, modern-day prophesy and faith healing, which includes the laying on of hands.”
Those Obama Liberals, News media still seem to like falsely  to bash, hate Sarah Plain, they still are alienating  now too  more and more right right winged Christians, causing them to support Sarah Plain instead..
The Pentecostal  Church services tend to be vastly different, but not always, some churches are more active in participatory services of worshiping God in songs, tongues, and in prophecies and they also do tend to have longer prayer services , they are more diverse, less predictable  church services than many other supposedly Christian denominations.
