Accuracy in Media

CNN announced on Monday that they have accepted the resignation letter of acting Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile, after revelations that she gave questions to the Clinton campaign ahead of a CNN debate and CNN-TV One town hall.

CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas issued the following statement about Brazile’s departure:

“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. (Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.) 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, who is an ardent Clinton supporter, has denied passing along any debate or town hall questions to the campaign. But the WikiLeaks revelations of her emails to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and communications director Jennifer Palmieri show that she did exactly that, further exposing the lengths to which Hillary Clinton is willing to go to in order to win the election next week.

    Hillary’s Gender War
    by Carey Roberts
    Feb. 2007

    The greatest controversy during the upcoming political campaign will not be Republican vs. Democrat or conservative against liberal. Rather, the most riveting debate is likely to revolve around the question of whether a female president can better lead the nation than a man. It will be the ultimate Battle of the Sexes, played out in endless bedroom discussions, backyard debates, and newspaper headlines.

    Three years ago Marie Wilson wrote a book called Closing the Leadership Gap in which she wrote (somewhat ungrammatically) that the United States “has been steered by male leadership who tend to lead from a self-centered, self-preservation perspective,” whereas, “Women…are inclined to lead, their families and nations, from an other-centered perspective.”

    Hillary Rodham Clinton soon picked up on that theme and began to brag that female officials are more truthful than their male counterparts. At the 2005 Women’s Global Leadership Summit, Clinton claimed that “Research shows the presence of women raises the standards of ethical behavior and lowers corruption.”

    And others argue that a more caring and peaceful disposition of the fairer sex will lead to a less bellicose world.
