CNN Fields Easy Questions to Elizabeth Warren at Town Hall Meeting
Just when you thought CNN couldn't lose any more credibility, we get this. The fakest name in news hosted a town hall meeting with presidential candidate and genuine fauxhican, Elizabeth Warren. The questions they were giving her are a joke:
Monday’s event with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi, hosted by Jake Tapper, was arguably the easiest for any candidate so far.
Out of the 31 total questions asked, 22 of them were from the audience, only three of them were from the right (none from Tapper), and only one of them offered criticism of the Senator. The prescreened questions from the audience also included six from a neutral position (8 from Tapper), but 12 from the left (1 from Tapper).
Yep, CNN was definitely going easy on Warren.
With all those softballs in the town hall, I was expecting one of the quests to ask Lizzie her favorite color. Mind you, there are plenty of hard questions they could throw at her. "Why did you lie about your race for years? What was the deal with that cringe-inducing beer video?"
Compare this to when CNN questions Trump. Jim Acosta can't resist hijacking every press conference to
get a taste of the spotlight grill Trumpy. With the Donald, CNN does everything short of breaking out the Vaseline and giving him a proctological exam. They regard everything the Orange Man says with suspicion. Not with Sacaja-fake-a.
The double standard in the media is real. Leftists get the benefit of avoiding hard questions. People with an R after their name, however, get put under a microscope. Somehow, after examples like this, outlets like CNN still expect us to take them seriously. They're gonna have to make quite a few changes before that happens.
