David Bohrman, CNN Bureau Chief and Big Fat Liar

Get a load of this! This was from a NYT article last week. You need to read the whole damn thing but here's the money shot:

"David Bohrman, CNN’s Washington bureau chief and executive producer of the debate, spoke to The Caucus from “an undisclosed location” where he and a team of six others were pouring over the entries.

So far, about 3,000 questions have been posted to YouTube, Mr. Bohrman said, and he expects to have about 5,000 videos at his disposal come Sunday, the contest deadline. That beats July’s Democratic YouTube debate, which pulled in about 3,000 videos.

Most questions online have been pulled from public viewing for review, but many of the remaining posts involve asking the candidates to defend their opposition to gay marriage and abortion. Those kinds of “lobbying grenades” would be disqualified by the CNN selection team, Mr. Bohrman said.

“There are quite a few things you might describe as Democratic ‘gotchas,’ and we are weeding those out,” Mr. Bohrman said. CNN wants to ensure that next Wednesday’s Republican event is “a debate of their party.”

Correction: He wanted it to be CNN's stereotype of the Republican party. To that end they succeeded.

Uhhhh, Dave? You gots some 'splaining to do!

CNN or RNC saying anything doesn't matter. Don't you see? New media has been shown to have real power to effect change (immigration, Harriet Miers, etc).

Have faith my friend! This is a new age, trust me.
