Why the First Democratic Debate Was a Joke
Was the first Democratic debate really an airing of the issues?
Was it a fair presentation of the candidates?
Or was it one big staged infomercial for a favored candidate?
Based upon the actual debate and its aftermath, it sure seems that CNN stacked the deck for Hillary:
CNN host Anderson Cooper, who is set to moderate tonight’s Democratic debate, was listed as a “notable past member” the Clinton Global Initiative’s website along with a number of other big name journalists:
The list includes: CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Christiane Amanpour, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, NBC’s Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw, New York Times‘s Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristof, Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, Yahoo’s Katie Couric, The Economist‘s Matthew Bishop, and Financial Times‘ Lionel Barber.
The Clinton Foundation later told Mediaite that none of these journalists were asked to pay the $20,000 membership fee required of members. However, it’s safe to say that access to big name journalists was a key selling point for paying Clinton Global Initiative members. In a nutshell, Anderson Cooper helped Hillary Clinton raise money, and now he’s presented as an impartial moderator for tonight’s debate.
So the host “journalist” was a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.
Why didn’t Bernie Sanders and the rest of the boys in the debate mention this fact before answering one single question?
Get ready for life with Hillary as President…
One big staged special interest infomercial sponsored by the Main Stream Media.
