Kiran: Republicans Yahoos?

October 26, 2010

John: “Beats me. I don’t know. Wow!” Were American Morning co-hosts Kiran Chetry and John Roberts flying their true colors only one week away from the mid-term elections? In a “Morning Talkers: Red or blue brands?” segment, Kiran and John reported on a recent survey that indicated that “Google is the favorite brand of Democrats…while Fox News topped the brand list of Republicans.” Not surprisingly, John took the opportunity to whack rival Fox News but, interestingly, Kiran seemed to possibly snipe at her Republican fans instead.

Introducing the story, Kiran stated, “How you vote could decide which brands you choose as well. A new survey looks at how your political party affects brand loyalty. They found that Google was the top blue brand.” Strangely, veering off-script (since the survey merely mentioned brand loyalty in general rather than within particular categories), Kiran commented, “This was weird, though. Everybody uses Google.” When she got back on message, stating, “Fox News, the top red brand,” John derisively declared, “Wow! Surprise there.”

After Kiran listed a few more brands, she ad libbed, “But Google being a blue thing? That’s–everybody uses Google.” With eyebrows furrowed, John queried, “That’s kind of interesting. Well, if you’re a Republican, what search engine do you use?” Shaking her head, Kiran replied, “I don’t know.” Perhaps, using a double entendre, she laughed, “Yahoo?” Shrugging his shoulders, John responded, “Beats me. I don’t know. Wow!”

Another CNN “we Democrats” moment?
