Blitzer: Wolf or Lapdog

By |

It's one thing to be a bad debate moderator. It's another thing to be a biased debate moderator.

Check out the interference CNN's Wolf Blitzer ran for Hillary last night in this exchange with Obama:

CNN.com - Transcripts

BLITZER: Let me bring in Senator Obama, because you've been among those critical of Senator Clinton. You've suggested she's triangulating — whatever that means — on some of the key issues.

Funny that Wolf should suddenly find this vocabulary so challenging. After all, he defined the word himself on CNN Newsroom the morning of the debate:

"[Hillary's] going to have to take some clear-cut positions, otherwise she'll be accused of waffling or triangulation, as some of the pundits call it, and that's not necessarily going to be good for her." (via Nexis)

So Wolf identifies triangulation as Clinton's primary weakness in the morning. And then tries to make Obama look like an asshole for calling her on her triangulation in the evening.

What a douche dislikeable fellow.
