A good debunking of the Donna Brazile CNN fiasco

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

CNN's Jeff Zucker thinks Donna Brazile's actions are "disgusting" and "unethical". Well, huh.

It seems he thinks so because some pundits have decide that Brazile was given questions by someone (some magical someone who evidently doesn't work for CNN, according to Zucker), in advance of one of CNN's rather anemic election events.

One would think that a news organization like CNN might actually take the time to make an in-depth investigation of the accusations against Donna Brazile. And perhaps even an internal investigation of its own people.

But not CNN. Zucker literally took emails stolen from Podesta, possibly edited, and then published at Wikileaks—all at face value.

I'm not a journalist, but this doesn't strike me as a journalistic viewpoint. Perhaps that's because CNN isn't about journalism anymore...it's about entertainment.

Let's do what CNN should have done. Let's take a closer look at the two emails containing questions that Brazile supposedly coerced out of someone to send to Podesta. I'm going to, for now, take the text at face value—that it hasn't been edited.


some really solid points in the rest of the piece

1. People are losing their minds over Donna Brazile telling someone they'll get a question about Flint

water at the debate held in Flint.

Well, Duh!

This OTT nonsense coming from Zucker reveals a lot about who he is as a person. This is classic psychological projection.

2. A lot of idiots are taking that policy of not confirming nor denying as being conformation of truth

I see it everywhere, even here on DU. They're not denying it! So, it means the emails are authentic! It's maddening.

9. Yep. Psychological projection.

Falsely accuses Brazile of his own character flaws.
