from The Daily Sheeple:
For the most part, there wasn’t really anything controversial about CNN’s presidential debate last Tuesday, which is exactly how the mainstream media likes to present their “debates.” They’ll never offer anything challenging to their viewers. All they do is shower the flavor of the week with attention and adoration while largely ignoring any candidate who might have something interesting to say; or worse, those candidates will never make it to the stage in the first place.
Really, these debates have nothing to do with informing the public on their presidential “choices.” When election season nears, outlets like CNN have only two objectives. First, they want to fuel their dying ratings, so of course they’re going to give the most air time to whoever happens to be popular. And second, they will manipulate the discourse surrounding the debate, because their secondary mission is to shill for whichever candidate is the establishment pick. And boy, did CNN manipulate the hell out of this debate.
For starters, the debate was clearly all about Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Everyone else on that stage, existed only to maintain the illusion that an actual debate was taking place between diverse voices. Just ask Jim Webb.
“It’s a reality that the debate was being portrayed as a showdown between Mrs. Clinton and Bernie, but if you’re going to be invited to participate and people are going to judge whether you, quote, ‘won’ or not, at least you should be able to have the kind of time that’s necessary to discuss the issues that you care about, that you’ve worked on,” Webb added.
Webb frequently criticized Cooper earlier this week for ignoring him during the contest in Las Vegas.
He admitted on Thursday that he even joked with Sanders about the situation while they were on the debate stage.
“I even turned around to Bernie Sanders at one point and said, ‘Bernie, say my name, will you? Say my name,’ Webb said.
“In that kind of environment, I was either going to be Mr. Angry or I was going to be a potted plant,” he quipped. “That was the only way to try to get into the conversation.”
And after the debate, CNN went into full propaganda mode, as they fawned over Clinton, and called the debate in her favor. The rest of the media pundits quickly fell in line, and declared her the clear winner. But everybody who watched the debate from home seemed to have a different opinion. In fact, the mainstream pundits seemed to be completely at odds with the American public.
