Donna Brazile out at CNN after getting caught feeding more questions to Hillary campaign

Donna Brazile out at CNN after getting caught feeding more questions to Hillary campaign

Why isn’t this a bigger story? Has there ever been a proven case of debate cheating?

Why isn’t this even a bigger story?

Is there any prior report of actual cheating at a debate or town hall?

Why aren’t Bernie supporters spitting nails and vowing to take down the Clintons?

For the second time, Donna Brazile has been documented to have fed a question to the Clinton Campaign, as The Washington Examiner reports:

Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman and former CNN contributor Donna Brazile appears to have leaked more than one debate question to Hillary Clinton‘s campaign team during the primaries.

In an email dated March 5, 2016, Brazile sent a note to Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and the Democratic nominee’s director of communications, Jennifer Palmieri, titled “One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash.”

The body of Brazile’s email read, “Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the [people] of Flint.”

“Folks, I did a service project today. It’s so tragic. And what’s worse, some homes have not been tested and it’s important to encourage seniors to also get tested,” she wrote.

On March 6, during a Democratic primary debate in Flint, Mich., Clinton fielded a question from Lee-Anne Walters, one of the city’s first residents to report having issues with water contamination.

“After my family, the city of Flint and the children in D.C. were poisoned by lead, will you make a personal promise to me right now that, as president, in your first 100 days in office, you will make it a requirement that all public water systems must remove all lead service lines throughout the entire United States, and notification made to the — the citizens that have said service lines,” Walters asked Clinton.

The former secretary of state responded, “Well, I agree completely. I want to go further though. I want us to have an absolute commitment to getting rid of lead wherever it is because it’s not only in water systems, it’s also in soil, and it’s in lead paint that is found mostly in older homes. That’s why 500,000 children today have lead – lead in their bodies.”

Politico reports that CNN has severed links with Brazile:

CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing former contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile sharing questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.

Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, and sharing with the campaign a possible question prior to a CNN town hall also in March.

Apparently Brazile was out after the first breach of trust, it was just announced now.

Let’s be clear – CNN has no problem with what she did regardless of their statements. The problem is she got caught.

    The corrupt media is in bed with Crooked Hillary.
    This normal operating procedure.
    Just another bold faced liar!!

    The game is truly rigged!

Don’t forget she lied twice about feeding questions.
DB is a disgusting POS.
Can them all!

    She lied through her teeth when she was on with Megan Kelly then tried to claim the emails were doctored.

and it pisses me off that in the earlier occasion, she hid behind her faith. To paraphrase Daniel, she was weighed on the scales and found wanting

Why isn’t CNN being called racist for firing a poor black woman?

1. Why is DB still at CNN?
2. They are admitting the emails are real, not forgeries?

Soon we are going to need to hire political advisors from Angola to help us run an honest, fair and prosperous government.

Other than voting by AK-47, they seem to have their government at least as functional as ours has become.

Silly Professor, thinking ends do not justify means.

    It’s not a bigger story because WE ALL KNEW IT WAS GOING ON.

    You may as well ask why anyone in the Wide Wide World of Sports actually believes ANYTHING from CNN.

Why isn’t this a bigger story? Has there ever been a proven case of debate cheating?

Two good questions, with obvious answers.

“Why isn’t this a bigger story?”

Because anyone with any awareness…on either end of the “sane” political spectrum…has known this for decades; Deemocrats cheat. That’s why I term them “Deemocrats”, out of their threat to “deem” legislation passed according to the Constitution…which you cannot do.

For the rest of America, it isn’t a bigger story because it does not involve a Kardasian.

“Has there ever been a proven case of debate cheating?”

This begs the question as to what is “proven”. Candy Crowley was, to most anyone with any brains, a red-handed cheater vis Romney. I dunno if you would say that was “proven”, but I sure do.

    It’s not so much that democrats cheat it is how open they have become about it. When the news media and academia have internalized the concept of subjective reality, for them it is not cheating but a viewpoint.

    In a world with no such thing as truth and false but only degrees, any subjective opinion is as valid as any other.

    So far the only place that I have found this workable is reading the dial on my bathroom scale.

    Case in point Harry Reid’s greatest accomplishment (other than enriching himself and his family through shady deals) in the Senate was lying on the Senate floor in 2012 about Mitt Romney not paying any federal income taxes for 10 years.

    They are so comfortable lying it is second nature. Of course, decades of not being called on one’s lies helps provide that comfort.

      When there are no penalties, and only benefits, of course they’ll lie.

      Economists call such people “rational actors”.

        They(HRC Posse) actually have a scale called Pinocchio points. “One” being a little lie. I don’t know what the high end is.. They think it’s funny….

    MattMusson in reply to Ragspierre. | October 31, 2016 at 4:03 pm

    I still think the extensive lists of all the reporters from every major network colluding with the Clintons is a bigger story.

This is small stuff. CNN stayed in Baghdad when the other networks left and paid Saddam Hussein to do so.

Donna is privileged: She has the right plumbing, complexion, body image, and politics

My default approach to anything is that MSM and Dems have colluded in any and every way possible.

Just like Russians don’t seem to have an issue with Putin controlling the media and political opponents turning up dead, the Dems are rolling with the same attitude.

The scary part is 50% of our country has no issue with this.

Sorry…a bit off topic, but…

she did make mincemeat out of Brazile the other day, and the schadenfreude is TOOOOOO delicious…

Poor, poor child. Whatever shall she do, now that her career is over because she was so mean to Donelle T-wamp…???

    Reduced her to a babbling idiot. Literally. It was beautiful.

    “because she was so mean to Donelle T-wamp…???”

    Strawman. It’s not that MeAgain was mean to Trump. Its that she wants to be a Celebrity Journalist at our expense. Another Bill O’Reilly. She made herself part of the story – cardinal sin in journalism.

    I remember after the first primary debate, tuning into to FOX looking forward to getting expert analysis on where each of the candidates stood. Instead, I was treated to a 24/7 spat between two celebrity blowhards. That’s why MeAgain is under fire.

Why isn’t this a bigger story?

Well, it’s in TV guide, so far. Seriously, it just showed up on AP, too.

It’s not a bigger story because the Democratic media just does not think that stories that disadvantage Democrats are not worth talking about. The Washington Post does this, particularly for Presidential elections. The rest of the JournoList do much the same thing.

“Why aren’t Bernie supporters spitting nails and vowing to take down the Clintons?”

They are, you just have to know where to find them. If you wander over to Reddit at The Donald (Donald J. Trump for President) subreddit, you can find a lot of people who formerly supported Bernie Sanders. Those people are not exploding now, because they already exploded when Bernie capitulated at the DNC.

These people already know about the DNC and their rent-a-riots, the very real problems with our touch-screen voting systems, and the problem of having a candidate for a major political party running around promising big donors that she has private positions that are different from what she espouses in public. They already know about the false charges of racism against a civil rights pioneer, and of sexism against an avid proponent of talent wherever he finds it. They aren’t necessarily fond of raunchy talk, but they know who has an even filthier mouth, and on top of that, is a viciously anti-woman rape enabler.

They also know about the problems at State, where at least two successive Secretaries of State have used government contracts to enrich their children, and the misuse of a charitable foundation to enrich FOBs at the expense of Haitians, at least. They don’t think too highly of a US Secretary of State being involved with a charitable foundation that takes whopping amounts of money from the most miserable governments on earth, to support an American political campaign.

In brief, they have kept up with all of the news, not just Project Veritas and Wikileaks. Finally, they have documented the censorship exercised by Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

There’s anger, and there’s determination.

You note that Brazile is out at CNN as if it was a punishment. Hadn’t she already resigned to take up Clinton’s campaign duties?

All this publicity does is to make it more difficult for CNN to rehire her if Trump wins the election. Of course, in 6 months, only us political junkies will even remember this happened at all.

Something commonly referred to as “Clinton News Network” develops ethics? Now THAT’S a story!

Anybody wonder where Paul Ryan and Michell McConnell are in all this?

It’s we who keep the likes of these two rino rats in high office that are to blame for our political system going to the likes of Obama/Jarrett and Clinton.

    Huh.

    I thought it was voters all this time. Not me, who voted against Barracula and contributed against his supporters.

    Odd…

    “Anybody wonder where Paul Ryan and Michell McConnell are in all this?”

    Good point. Where is the GOP “leadership” been during all of this. Are we to believe that they can’t find a way to get on a network and talk about the rule of law?

    Somebody call out to Martha’s Vineyard, tell them it’s time to suit up.

This isn’t the first time she was fired for unethical conduct during a campaign.

I have a question for the lawyers. Would it be unconstitutional for Congress to pass laws regarding media malpractice? Is there some way of holding all of the media to some standards? After this election cycle where their bias is out there in the open for all to see it seems the American people should have some recourse to stop all the lies and bias against Conservatives.

    Ragspierre in reply to riverlife_callie. | October 31, 2016 at 7:26 pm

    It would be hard to think of anything more dangerous!

    Andrew Klaven is a pretty smart guy, but this is stupid.

    https://pjmedia.com/andrewklavan/2016/10/30/reform-the-mainstream-news-media/

    The TERRIBLY clumsy sledge hammer of law is the LAST thing we want to resort to. Remember, I say that as an attorney.

    So…how do we reform the media? I can’t think of anything better than the marketplace.

      The market place has failed to rein them in. Its like allowing corrupt refs to call the Superbowl. Every year they make outrageous calls that decide the game, and every year we let them back in.

      The RNC does the same thing with debate moderators. How many more times are they going to allow “Democrat operatives with bylines” to put their thumb on the scales? Why agree to ANY moderators from CNN, MSNBC, etc. Or why do they not insist on counter-bias, like having a Breitbart or a Milo Yiannopoulos for every Anderson Cooper? This is the Failure Theater that has my side ditching the GOP. Its like they don’t want to fight for us.

      And while I agree with you that its a bad idea – a law made in a good faith attempt to rein in the MSM would be abused later in bad faith by the Left – I’m not ready take it off the table. There has to be some way to address this, short of violence.

      Oh don’t be so passive-aggressive. If you are going to down vote, at least have the intellectual integrity to explain what you disagree with.

      And downvoting again with your sockpuppets just makes you look pathetic.

      Not 24 hours ago you were bragging about being a lawyer and having such a superior mind. Is this how law school sharpened your mind? Teaching you to “ring and run” ?

      Stop hiding.

“completely uncomfortable”

What an odd phrase. I’ve never heard someone say they were “completely” uncomfortable. Communication is an art form for these people, they have Doctorates in Spin. So I wonder what they are trying to convey here?

The bigger question is why is no one is asking Hillary why she accepted the unethical help. There is no question that she was in on scam and knew exactly where it came from.
DB is just a conduit.

Unreported: Donna Brazile secretly told Hillary that the following question would be asked at a town-hall style appearance in Moscow: “What was the name of your first pet?”

I too share the disdain and outrage towards Donna Brazille, but the real outrage should be directed at hillary and her campaign. Think about what she knowingly did. She went into a national debate knowing that she already had at least one question ahead of time and she was ok with that! That means that she has no ethics or morals about winning. We, of course, all knew this bout her but this one episode clearly shows that there is no advantage she will not take to defeat her opponents. She is the one who should be asked about knowing the question and why she did not report it to the debate commission. Where is the msm when we need them?
