Global News Media, CNN Fires Contributor For Leaking Debate Questions To Clinton
The cable news network, CNN has fired it’s US Presidential Debate contributor, Donna BRazile for leaking questions to Hillary Clinton.
CNN on Monday said it is “completely uncomfortable” with new leaked emails that Donna Brazile fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton.
The media outfit then announced that it has accepted her resignation as contributor.
CNN spokeswoman, Lauren Pratapas in an email to The New York Post said:
“CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate.
“We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
Brazile’s contract with CNN had been suspended in July when she was named interim head of the Democratic National Committee.

This followed the removal of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose hacked emails also incidentally showed bias toward Clinton over Bernie Sanders.
CNN noted in its statement then that “on October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor.”
Fresh WikiLeaks emails show that Brazile — previously accused of leaking to Team Clinton for a CNN town hall — also gave the Democratic nominee a heads-up before her Democratic primary face-off with Sanders.
Brazile, who was then the vice chairperson of the DNC and a CNN contributor, emailed Clinton’s campaign on March 12, the night before the Flint, Michigan, debate.
Brazile wrote to Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, and communications director, Jennifer Palmieri.

She disclosed in the message:
“One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,”
“Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint.”
That particular lead was very close to the actual question Hilliary was asked by local resident Mikki Wade:
“If elected president, what course will you take to regain my trust in government?”
Another Wikileaks revelation showed Brazille helping Clinton behind the scenes.
WikiLeaks earlier revealed a separate email in which Brazile told Team Clinton that the former secretary of state would get a question about the death penalty before a March 13 town hall on CNN.
As a conbfirmation, Clinton was pressed about her stance on the death penalty during the Ohio State University forum.
Latest revelations from WikiLeaks shows Brazile identified her source for the question as Roland Martin.
Martin was one of the moderators of the presidential debate forum.
Brazile said: “I’ll send a few more.”
Meanwhile, a funny hashtag, #HillaryForPrision seeking Hillary Clinton be sent to prison has been trending on Twitter.
