StopKoolaidPoliticsT (1010439) writes "Wednesday night, the Republican candidates participated in a debate run by CNN with questions fielded from Youtube. Today, even The NY Times, hardly a bastion of conservatism, is questioning CNN's vetting of the people whose question were chosen. There are at least eight participants who have already been outed as Democratic activists, interns and supporters, the least of which is retired Brig. General Keith Kerr who serves on two of Hillary Clinton's campaign advisory panels and was flown to the debate by CNN to ask a follow-up question live. Was it fair for CNN to frame the Republican debate in terms of Democrat ideology? Should those who would question the candidates at least be honest about who they are everyone knows the full context of the question? Did CNN fulfill its journalistic responsibility?"
