Skip to comments.Leaked CBS memo backs Bachmann 'snub' charge Campaign says network debate manipulated to shut her
Posted on 11/13/2011 8:10:20 AM PST by Nachum
WASHINGTON Michele Bachmann's plenty steamed about her treatment in tonight's CBS News/National Journal debate between GOP presidential candidates.
Several times throughout the course of the 90-minute presentation, Rep. Bachmann, R-Minn., attempted to follow-up questions and answers by other candidates just as the moderators of the debate suggested they would be allowed to do at their discretion.

Well, we all know the fix is in. No real surprise.
CBS treated her VERY unfairly.
CBS was basically snubbing the entire Republican Party and interested Independents by only broadcasting one hour of the debate and then not providing enough bandwidth for the other hour online.
If I had not already been thoroughly disgusted with them, this would have done it.
So why is the Bachmann Campaign apologizing to CBS?
No more "debates" unless guys like Tom Marr are the moderators and there's an empty podium with teleprompters adjacent to represent Zer0's positions on the issues.
I was actually digging Bachmann a little last night, too bad the Republicans keep allowing these liberals to moderate our debates and turn them all into the Romney show.
Never will understand why the Pubs keep putting themselves at the mercy of these hard-left Liberal panels.
You have to expect them to cheat. Liberals never play by the rules. They believe themselves and their cause to be so holy, that the end always justifies any means.
Anyone watching the debate witnessed it. We see how the media - in your face - controls our candidates. They do it because they can and it hasn’t failed. Sarah has been implying that for three years. When sidetracking the media when she resigned they, slammed her unmercifully and media pawns and mimics carried their trash here. Have we seen any media trashing Mitt? Nope. Americans will get what they deserve.
She is my candidate. I will not leftists here at Freerepublic or leftists at CBS convince me otherwise. She is the most pure ideologically. Freepers dismiss her because the MSM dismisses her. I will not do that.
The local cable provider (Comporium) here in the Upstate (SC) dropped coverage of the last 30 min to go to a NCIS episode.I was Pi$$ed, could find a telephone # with a human connected ti for 35 min, then the operator told me the debate was over. We live in a pretty conservative area (Ousted Jack Spratt last year), but the newspaper and the cable franchise are controlled by lefties
How much time did they give their boy Huntsman?
It would seem the MSM and pundits are pushing Mitt Romney and have been....I wonder why. Their hissy fits and spats are becoming more open because the right is not falling into lock step with their man or some of the big money RINO'S man.
That pansy, leftist knat of a moderator embodied the MSM’s smug, sanctimonious, and intellectually pretentious attitude to a tee. The great thing about Newt is how he doesn’t take their BS and attacks their biased and deceitful questions. Newt is changing the rules of the game. He unmasks the bias and stupdity of the MSM for all to see. I hope other candidates will follow.
If I was oaranoid, I could swear that Pelley’s question to perry abotu the Dept of Energy was a set-up, a gift..he teed it up, and Perry hit it out of the park. So, were the MSM trying to help Perry get back in the race?
Why does the RNC allow the networks to control these debates? STUPID....STUPID....STUPID!!!
All these debates are doing are helping Obama.
When will the candidates decide not to waste their time with these flaming liberal venues?
I like Bachmann but she should stop whining.
The front runners always get more time. They have more supporters which translates into higher ratings for the network. It’s the free market. If she doesn’t like it she should stay home.

Well, lets see:(repost)
Nixon was a crook.
Reagan was an amiable dunce.
Dan Quayle was an idiot.
Packwood was a male chauvinist pig.
Clarence Thomas was a wild-eyed womanizing black man.
The Judge was Borked
Condoleezza Rice was Aunt Jemimah.
Bush was a chimpy bushitler war criminal moron.
Sarah Palin is _________ (fill in the blank)
The TEApartiers are racist whackos.
Michelle Bachmann is unstable
Perry is a racist.
Herman Cain is...
Guilanni, Romney, McCain, Graham etc. are reasonable moderates.
Exactly! Why are there no ‘rats on that list? :-)
The media has no problem with being obvious yet we believe their polls, their line of questioning and their ruling of ‘our’ debates; i.e., that question to Cain was so out-of-line but the way the audience reacted to it was awesome.
