Opponents of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton have long stated the media has been going out of their way to groom her to be the next president. A recent report by WikiLeaks uncovered that Clinton received information about the questions which would be asked during the presidential primary debate with Bernie Sanders, from an individual inside CNN who now works directly for the Democratic party, and Clinton’s adversaries are crying foul.
An email which was sent on March, 12 2016 by Donna Brazile, who is now the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but at the time was a contributor for CNN has rocked the Clinton campaign. The email’s subject read, “From time to time I get the questions in advance.”
Brazile wrote to Clinton’s communications director Jenifer Palmieri and said, “Here’s one that worries me about HRC.” The one which Brazile referenced was a question about the death penalty. Palmieri wrote back to Brazile, “Yes, it is one she gets asked about. Not everyone likes her answer but can share it.”
Despite the email leak CNN stands by their staff and says they do not give questions in advance:
To be perfectly clear: We have never, ever given a town hall question to anyone beforehand.
The statement by CNN is a flat lie, as Clinton clearly received information before the debate. Why would CNN attempt to cover-up what is now a known fact? Surely they were aware of the content of the WikiLeaks documents, but apparently they were hoping the public wasn’t paying attention.
