From the Boston Globe, CNN planted question at debate, student says:
But when she arrived in Boston for the debate, she wrote, she was "handed a note card" with the question and told [by CNN Producers that] she couldn't ask her alternative "because it wasn't lighthearted enough and they wanted to modulate the event with various types of questions."What, 2 soldiers dying in Iraq every day, a sluggish economy, environmental protection being gutted, a fucking moron for a President who's alienating the home-base of democracy from every other democratic nation, one by one, I could go on, this isn't lighthearted enough?
This is a big problem: Corporate Media Interests are focus grouping our democratic process. Really, right now we don't need some fucking media whore clowns making the next presidential election into some sort of funny car show.
