I'm not a HC fan, but I don't get how this is "unethical". They planted the question, but they had no control over the answer. Its a little sneaky but that's just politics, unfortunately.

Yeah, that was unethical, and it is what I was referencing in my first post. When you plant the question *and* the answer, you have an ethics issue. Not when you manage to sneak your question in to the opposition. It wasn't even a "surprise" question, because CNN would have reviewed it prior to it being asked, and would have determined that the question was within the bounds of the debate. If it hadn't been asked by a HC staffer, it would have been perfectly allowable.

No ethics question on this one. Just good politics.

Judging from all the news reports today, CNN made itself look like a total ass. Rregardless if it is true or not, they made themselves look as though they are supporters of the Democrats. Oh well, no real big surprise.

New car.... 2001 Jaguar XJR!!!!

So you guys are afraid of questioning? What a bunch of fucking pussies, and what a stupid and false issue. How about real issues? The Republicans looked ridiculous last night, what with Rudy and Romney arguing with each other like a couple of old queens in a gay bar, McCain sounding like an Alzheimer's patient and Huckapee sounding like a buffoon, and Duncan Tancredo looking totally lost. The whole country was laughing.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

CNN Cooper: 'I had not heard that he's actually working for a campaign. If so, that would certainly be an issue that should be addressed immediately'...

VIDEO: Anderson Cooper's Mea Culpa...

MSNBC HOST: 'Total crap to suggest that nobody in CNN knew'...

McCain: 'I think it should have been revealed'...

REPORT: CNN Republican questioners were DECLARED Edwards and Obama voters...
