Maybe there should have been allowances made for Protest-Zone-style seating, to keep the Rep's debate more Party-friendly....and, keep the insurgents in-check. * "CNN expressed regret yesterday for allowing a Hillary Clinton adviser to ask a question at Wednesday's Republican presidential debate, even as controversy swirled about two other questioners who have declared their support for Democratic candidates. Retired Brig. Gen. Keith Kerr, who asked why gays should not be allowed to serve openly in the military, is a member of Clinton's steering committee on gay and lesbian issues, something her campaign disclosed in a news release in June. "Had we known that, we probably wouldn't have used the question," said David Bohrman, CNN's Washington bureau chief, who produced the debate. He added that "you could spend hours Googling everybody. What we cared about was that he was real." CNN deleted Kerr's question from a rebroadcast of the debate. Moderator Anderson Cooper acknowledged the error involving Kerr after Bill Bennett, the conservative author and radio host who is a network contributor, raised it during a post-debate discussion. Bennett said yesterday that his radio producer e-mailed him information from a National Review blog. "It shouldn't have ever happened," Bennett said. "You've got to vet that sort of thing." * Silly CNN! In their efforts to pander to "conservatives"....to prove they're not the Clinton News Network (so critical to news-accuracy )....they'd slipped-up and allowed too-real people on the premises.
