From CNN - yes, I do occasionally visit the Communist News Network

The college student who was told what question to ask at one of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign events said "voters have the right to know what happened" and she wasn't the only one who was planted. In an exclusive on-camera interview with CNN, Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, a 19-year-old sophomore at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, said giving anyone specific questions to ask is "dishonest," and the whole incident has given her a negative outlook on politics.

Gallo-Chasanoff, whose story was first reported in the campus newspaper, said what happened was simple: She said a senior Clinton staffer asked if she'd like to ask the senator a question after an energy speech the Democratic presidential hopeful gave in Newton, Iowa, on November 6.

"I sort of thought about it, and I said 'Yeah, can I ask how her energy plan compares to the other candidates' energy plans?'" Gallo-Chasanoff said Monday night.

According to Gallo-Chasanoff, the staffer said, " 'I don't think that's a good idea, because I don't know how familiar she is with their plans.'

He then opened a binder to a page that, according to Gallo-Chasanoff, had about eight questions on it.

"The top one was planned specifically for a college student," she added. "It said 'college student' in brackets and then the question." FULL STORY

Actually, CNN stands for Corporate News Network.

Dave's correct. Ted Turner & "Hanoi Jane" no longer influence CNN editorial policy. I have come to respect Lou Dobbs. He might run at the last moment, as a thoughful Independent, to save my old
party's credibility. Wouldn't it be nice to have a third party? Now That...would be a welcome "New Direction". It might even shake up George Soros Powerful Hate-Groups,
like PSFG & Media(Mud)Matters. Wowee! reb
