Skip to comments.Donna Brazile: An ongoing disgrace for Fox News (Vanity)
Posted on 11/05/2019 9:28:11 PM PST by Mount Athos
What greater scandal in network news history is there than what Donna Brazile did as a CNN employee, giving debate questions in advance to Hillary to advantage her over Bernie? How the hell is this even remotely forgivable in the profession?
Fox blacklisted commentator Michael Knowles FOREVER for daring to call Greta Thornburg a "mentally ill Swedish child", even though she admits suffering from depression, OCD, etc..
But Donna committing one of the most extremely unethical journalistic outrages in modern history, hey no problem, all forgiven.
sorry i should have made clear in my post that CNN fired her, and later Fox news hired her, where she still works today.
In case anyone didn’t know.
I didn’t, and I don’t know what the acronym “OCD” stands for. Proper usage usually puts the full meaning in parentheses after the acronym. “In case anyone didnt know.”
sorry you are right, OCD = obsessive compulsive disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Yeah, Paul Ryan is like Hunter Biden on the Burisma board — both useless. And I don’t know why Fox would hire Donna. She is corrupt and maybe they want to emulate CNN who also have a slew of corrupt, disgraced people. God knows what goes through their mind.
Brazile is a vile and nasty piece of work.
Well, if you’re going to blame Paul Ryan for everything Fox does that you don’t like, let’s also blame him for the Fox Nation streaming service, which is bringing more pro-America programs reflecting traditional conservative values too.
You cant have it both ways.
Brazile? She’s helps fill space, and Ann Coulter has proven, being controversial helps fill your bank account. As long as she provides commentary that helps sell ads on FNC, she’s got a job, just like an actor or other performer.
i admit i am not familiar with fox nation streaming.
I don’t think it is correct to compare Ann Coulter to Donna Brazile.
Ann Coulter boldly speaks ideas that shake people up.
Donna Brazile gave debate questions in advance to Hillary, grossly betraying journalistic ethics and utterly betraying the public trust. The debates are a critical part of our Democracy. People watching didn’t know that one candidate was given the questions in advance. They were evaluating the candidates. Do you really just view this in terms of ad revenue, that’s sad.
Donna’s skin color, added to her politics, keeps her employed. Her cheating was for Hillary, after all. That’s justifiable in the world of the Left.
“But Donna committing one of the most extremely unethical journalistic outrages in modern history, hey no problem, all forgiven.”
Ehhhh, I don’t even need to look that up to know you are....welll...stretching the truth.
I don’t mind you having a different opinion or pointing out something i missed, what do you remember about it
On March 17, 2017, Brazile admitted to forwarding debate questions to Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 Democratic primary, while she was Vice Chair of the DNC and working as a CNN commentator. In an essay she wrote for Time magazine, she said, “Then in October, a subsequent release of e-mails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign.” Brazile went on to explain: “My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. But sending those e-mails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
“one of the most extremely unethical journalistic outrages in modern history,”
That’s what I was referring to. Brazile is not a journalist and never has been been.
If you want egregious journalism, look at Brian Williams and Dan Rather.
True dat. Not to mention that she is a very odd-looking, creepy little life form to begin with. There were definitely some genetic circuit breakers that got switched the wrong way the second the sperm hit the egg in that one.
ok, i appreciate you correcting me on the distinction between commentator and journalist, it is an important distinction i failed on and good for you to point out.
It still is a shocking betrayal of public trust, ethics, that ranks among the top outrages in network news ever as far as I am concerned. Millions of Americans watching thinking it is a fair debate to judge them on.
Oh yeah, and why exactly wasn’t Hillary called out on having the debate questions in advance and not coming clean, just keeping quiet to benefit from the inside info...
Okay, then. I hope you have a restful night.
Chuck that fannel.
I don’t even recognize FOX. Other than Hannity, it’s all Chinese to me.
Yup. Ever since Fox hired that filthy wretch, our family and many of our neighbors and friends have stopped watching Fox. Personally, she makes my skin crawl listening to her piss-poor pronunciation of the English language.
