Equal treatment from CNN

Posted by Richard on November 30, 2007

There's a lot of fussing and fuming about the YouTube questioners CNN picked for the Republican debate last night (if you skipped it, read Vodkapundit's priceless drunkblogging of the event: insightful and funny). It seems to me that CNN has treated the Democrats and Republicans just about the same. 

In CNN's Nov. 15 Democratic debate, Democratic activists with easily-discovered ties to Democratic candidates and elected officials were misrepresented as undecided voters. The questions, some of which were planted, largely represented a liberal perspective and were designed to make viewers more favorably disposed toward liberal ideas and candidates. 

In CNN's Nov. 28 Republican debate, Democratic activists with easily-discovered ties to Democratic candidates and elected officials were misrepresented as undecided voters. The questions, all of which were carefully chosen by CNN from among the 5000 submitted, largely represented a liberal perspective of Republicans and were designed to make viewers more favorably disposed toward liberal ideas and candidates.

See? Both parties were treated exactly the same. What could be more fair?
