On Sunday, WikiLeaks dumped more damning emails for CNN, or as it’s commonly called, the Clinton News Network. The “most trusted” name in news was caught colluding with the Democratic National Committee, asking for interview questions for then-Republican presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz, business woman Carly Fiorina and real estate mogul Donald Trump.
This revelation comes on the heels of WikiLeaks exposing new interim DNC chair Donna Brazile leaking town hall and debate questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign while she worked as a CNN contributor, though the network has denied any allegation of wrongdoing.
In an email dated April 28 with the subject line “Cruz on CNN,” DNC research director Lauren Dillon asked other DNC staffers to “send some topical/interesting” questions for an upcoming interview. “CNN is looking for questions,” she wrote.
“Maybe a couple for Fiorina,” she added.
On April 25, in an email with the subject line “CNN questions for Trump,” Dillon similarly asked for questions CNN’s Wolf Blitzer could ask Trump in a scheduled interview on foreign policy.
“Wolf Blitzer is interviewing Trump on Tues ahead of his foreign policy address on Wed,” wrote Dillon.
DNC staffer Kelly Roberts sent back 11 different questions she and two other staffers had composed.
As noted by the Daily Caller, the Trump interview with Blitzer ended up being cancelled, as Dillon notified all via email.
“CNN said the interview was cancelled as of now but will keep the questions for the next one. Good to have for others as well,” she wrote.
“Boo,” replied DNC deputy communications director Christina Freundlich.
Blitzer would later interview Trump on May 4.
This most recent WikiLeaks exposure of CNN collusion only compounds the deep distrust many Americans have for the mainstream media, and CNN in particular.
