    Candy Crowley has already made clear that she does not have any intention on being a fly on the wall during the debate, but rather plans on inserting her Liberal bias as frequently and forcefully as necessary to help Obama not get blown out of the room again. Remember, this is the same “journalist” who called the Romney/Ryan ticket “some sort of ticket death wish.”

    Nope. No bias there whatsoever. She’s probably part of Obama’s debate prep team.

    Michelle Malkin reminds what happened the last time CNN ran a “Town Hall” debate, which was filled to the rafters with Liberals-pretending-to-be-undecided:

    It just makes me wonder why the dems think they have to have a liberal mod in there...Oh yea! It's because they need all the help they can get tonight! Oh well, let them have their hopes while they can.....it ain't gonna happen for them...too little too late! O has had four years to do something but he can't stay in the Whitehouse long enough to work, he's too busy compaigning or partying with his celebrity buddies!

    It's interesting how the wingnut loons are manufacturing a conspiracy before the debate has even begun. I guess they feel they already need an excuse.

    A pruned argument should still make a point.

    On Thursday, CNN will host a town hall with President Obama as part of his "final-year push to make gun control part of his legacy." In addition to sitting down with liberal anchor Anderson Cooper, the network says Obama will "take questions from the audience."

    Uh-oh. Get out your best pruning shears and trowels. In an age of micromanaged partisan stagecraft and left-wing media enablers, there is no such thing as a spontaneous question.

    CNN has a long history of allowing political plants to flourish in its public forums.

    At the cable station's Democratic debate in Las Vegas in 2007, moderator Wolf Blitzer introduced several citizen questioners as "ordinary people, undecided voters." But they later turned out to include a former Arkansas Democratic director of political affairs, the president of the Islamic Society of Nevada, and a far left anti-war activist who'd been quoted in newspapers lambasting Harry Reid for his failure to pull out of Iraq.

    At a CNN/YouTube GOP debate two weeks later, the everyday, "undecided voters" whose questions were chosen included:

    —A member of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual Americans For Hillary Clinton Steering Committee.

    —A young woman named "Journey" who questioned the candidates on abortion and whom CNN failed to properly identify as an outspoken John Edwards supporter.

    —A supposed "Log Cabin Republican" who had declared his support for Obama on an Obama '08 campaign blog.

    —A supposedly unaffiliated "concerned mother" who was actually a staffer and prominent Pittsburgh union activist for the United Steelworkers — which had endorsed Edwards for president.

    —A supposed "undecided" voter who urged Ron Paul to run as an independent, but who had already publicly declared his support for former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's Democratic presidential bid.

    —A staffer for Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; a former intern for Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., and a former intern for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

    Once a manipulative gardener, always a manipulative gardener.



    During the push for Obamacare, Democrat plants spread like kudzu across town hall propaganda events. At White House "citizen town halls" in 2009, Team Obama hand-picked not-so-random "random" questioners who included:

    Most on the right have been contriving and attempting to propagate their ridiculous lies for so long now they don’t even know what the truth is anymore.
