After CNN contributor (and DNC vice-chair) Donna Brazile got caught funneling debate questions to Hillary Clinton in 2016, you’d think CNN would know better than to openly shill for the DNC again this time around.
CNN is already up to its old tricks.
And the target this time around is the same as the last time: Bernie.
The New York Post is reporting that CNN was forced to admit that the townhall they hosted for Bernie Sanders was populated with Democrat operatives – all of whom asked Bernie some particularly difficult questions.
I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you!!
CNN and the DNC aren’t just joined at the hip; they’re two sides of the same coin.
And clearly the Democrats no more want Bernie Sanders as their nominee in 2020 than they did in 2016.
From the NY Post:
“Though we said at the beginning of the Town Hall that the audience was made up of Democrats and Independents, we should have more fully identified any political affiliations,” the cable news network said in a statement.
The outlet has come under fire for presenting the questioners on Monday’s episode as everyday voters, without mentioning that some are local party officials or work for politically connected firms.
“Everyday voters.” “Party officials.”
Good going, CNN!
This quote made me laugh out loud:
Among those who quizzed the socialist presidential hopeful was Baltimore County Democratic Party Chair Tara Ebersole, who was identified on the episode only as a “former biology professor,” and Charles County Democratic Central Committee Chair Abena McAllister, who was described as “an active Democrat,” according to Mediaite.
I guess it could have been worse.
They could have tried to pass Chelsea Clinton off as “Manhattan pregnant mom of two.”
Yunjung Seo was introduced as a college student, but neither host Wolf Blitzer nor the on-screen chyron mentioned that she is an intern at Democratic fundraising outfit the Katz Watson Group, according to her LinkedIn page.
And Shadi Nasab was also presented as a college student, even though her LinkedIn page says she is an intern at DC lobbying firm Cassidy and Associates.
Good heavens, they’re shameless.
The irony, of course, is CNN is taking major heat for hiring a former “Republican operative” Sarah Ingur for fear that her participation in the network during the election year might lead to “bias.”
I think that ship has sailed, my friends.
CNN had to promise not to include Ingur in Democrat debates or anything like that just to appease the frothing, angry members of the Resistance.
Meanwhile, they rig a Bernie townhall with Democrat operatives determined to once again scuttle his chances of securing the nomination.
Honestly, CNN is an absolute clown show.
