You Tube Debate Questions "RIGGED" For Republicans

When the Democrats agreed to field You Tube Questions from the people the "people" got to vote and have input on what questions would be asked.

The Republicans finally agree to do the You Tube Questions BUT only if it's rigged. There is no voting on the questions and the "Pundits" (who already ask stupid safe questions) will be choosing the questions.

Want to know what Americans are concerned about and thinking? Spend some time cruising through the You Tube videos...you will be surprised at the questions we are all asking that never make it to the candidates. I'll be perusing and choosing some of the videos here and there.

For now there is this one and I BET you won't see the Republicans asked this one.

Before you worry about the "rigged" questions at THIS debate, the questions that will be chosen by CNN, you know, those friends of the GOP, have you asked questions about the last DEM debate? You know, the one in which 90% of the audience and ALL of the questions were planted. Oh, and while you're at it, check out the connections between the Clintons and CNN. Google it.

First off what I've stated is true....the Republicans have set it up so they don't have to answer any questions from the people. HOpefully this won't happen in future You Tube debates that will involve Democratic Candidates.

As far as your information. I don't want ANY politician to have "connections" with major media outlets...It doesn't matter what party they belong too...Bottom line is that ALL politicians should be held accountable.The major problem with the media these days is they aren't holding folks in power accountable...

When Bush drove this nation to war ALL the networks did was repeat what the Bush administration said with no questions asked...and the link between Fox News and the extremist right wing Republicans has been well established for years,

So I wouldn't be surprised with the Clinton CNN link but would ask that you provide your sources for this statement.

The media is a MAJOR problem in our "democracy" b/c we NEED the media to do a good job at informing us instead of twisting the truth in order to keep our eyes off of what's really happening in this country...The Corporations have bought our politicians and they are now writing the laws to benefit the corporate elite and to decimate America's middle class.

So I'm worried about the media in general....whatever they report is usually so irrelevant, biased or wrong that it's pathetic... Buzz...Buzz...

This is a question that SHOULD HAVE BEEN been asked:
see video: CNN/YouTube Republican Debate: Giuliani 9/11 Question The problem is the CNN political team chooses the videos, not you.

I actually agree with most of what you said above. (The devil just got a jacket.) Here's some sources from the web that I linked to at our site.

Well, I tried to cut and paste, but the links are clumsy and too many. I invite you to our site. Here's our page for this topic:

Hope to see you.

cargo squid...I read your source....and if it's correct I fail to see how the Clinton's connections with a polling company equals influencing CNN news....CNN pays the polling company for polls.

This is definitely "different" than having Murdoch (who owns FOX news) or Ailes (who runs Fox news) in your court.

But true to corporate values and after all it is corporate media IF Hillary wins the election she may end up with Fox News on her side...it has been reported that Hillary has eaten lunch with Rupert Murdoch. (If you get satellite tv I hope it is dish tv and not the Murdoch owned Direct TV.....

Buzz...Buzz....

Cargo Squid--I visited your blog and replied to two posts..one of which was yours (november 28) but it "appears" that you guys moderate your replies so maybe you haven't approved mine yet.
I have no problems with moderation when it is done to weed out folks being abusive and playing games....But I've seen it misused at many sites where it's simply to slant the perspective, viewpoint, "propagandize" and cut off any meaningful discussion.

Anyway, I left a reply to my first comment posted on concretebob's post (which iss directly above your 11/28 post) We started a little talk...We shall see where it goes.... Buzz...Buzz....

As you can see, all comments that are not abusive, ie foul language, etc are still up. Hope you come back. We will probably never agree, politically, but, its nice to visit.

Mosquito said...

Believe it or not I think most of us can come to agreement if both sides are willing to open up our minds, not get fixated on certain loaded words with loaded beliefs, and not let the powers that be colonize and shackle our minds....

I've been very busy lately but do hope to stop by again soon...btw I don't do abusive posts with foul language it's just not my style..maybe the internet glitched and that's what happened to my post?

Take care cargosquid......buzz...buzz... mosquito
