Questions on Donna Brazil CNN scandal

Even assuming she did get questions used in the debate and townhall and passed them on:

1) why didn't CNN have better control over their debate questions? They must have known Brazile is a partisan.

2) why on earth were they disseminating a question ahead of time that was supposed to be given by a townhall participant? Isn't the bigger news that they script the questions that much ahead of time?* (if the question was only revealed right before the event happened, it seems unlikely that it would be useful for the Clinton campaign)

3) has Brazil admitted that the emails are accurate?

*apparently the day before:

1. try this link...

http://crooksandliars.com/2016/11/cnn-not-only-unethical-pretty-stupid-too

So it seems the "emails" were really just paragraphs taken from a longer message(s), which isn't on their website, out of context and possibly altered.

There are a lot of questions, but in reality, it is FAR from certain she provided questions she knew would be asked.

2. thanks! excellent piece

 

I hadn't thought that maybe Brazile was in contact with the townhall person separate from CNN. That actually makes more sense.

3. if you read BRAZILE's twitter you can garner some admittance, but the fact CNN fired her for her

interactions with the Clinton campaign they said, makes it clear.

Also, color me sarcastic - but I'm not sure what the big to do is about Brazile thinking, or the media being shocked, that she should tell Hillary - - - who was in Flint for the debate - - - that the question was going to be what would you do about the Flint water crisis if you were in charge?

Yes, it's unfair of her to tell Hillary's people anything, and Bernie was so smart he didn't need told by her that their would be a question about what should be done, lol, but I don't see how that is remotely much of a controversy concerning the topic was as obvious as any topic could ever be. CNN is just so weak on this, because Corey Is brazenly in the pocket of Trump.

5. it's embarrassing - for them! such BS

and this goes right along with Comey releasing multiple Clinton things that show no criminality on her part but nothing about Donald's issues. They're all heavily partisan - and shouldn't be!

6. It all seems pretty ridiculous to me

As if Hillary Clinton, world's foremost policy wonk, doesn't either anticipate that there will be a question at a debate in Flint, MI, about what can be done about the biggest issue in Flint Michigan--lead in the water--or have a damned good answer for it.

And I'm sure she has had a stock answer regarding the death penalty that she has been tweaking for years and years.

(And to the poster above who claims that Bernie is so smart he doesn't need the help--read the article at the link: he says that Brazile reached out to him and their campaign many times with helpful suggestions. It would be interesting to see his emails. As people like to say around here, the primary is over.)

7. not to mention that Brazile may well have known about the question from being on the ground there
