LOL Journalism!! Guess Which CNN Debate ‘Moderator’ Was A MEMBER Of The CLINTON Global Initiative?
For tonight’s totally unbiased Democrat debate at CNN, there will be one completely objective “journalist” who will be moderating, and oh, also happened to be a member of the Clinton Global Initiative!! Just a complete coincidence, really!!
From the Weekly Standard:
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.
Oh yeah, that’s not a problem at all, right? TOTALLY fair..
Should being member of 'Clinton Global Initiative' disqualify Cooper from moderating? Before answering, remember, ethics not an option…
