Watching the Democratic debate last night was a joke. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton debating and the moderators PBS, Gwen Iffil and Judy Woodruff, who donated to Hillary’s foundation. Isn’t it strange that the moderators did not ask one question about Hillary’s email investigation nor asked not one question on the State Department’s subpoenas on the Clinton’s foundation?
Why didn’t Bernie ask Hillary about either of those issues. Did you notice they were not asked any questions that the American people are concerned about.
The reason is Bernie is a patsy for the Democratic Party and knows he will not be winning and is only going through the motion for the party to protect Hillary. They are both communists, Hillary and Bernie, so in order to nominate a communist, they have to make Hillary as the lessor of two evils. It is well documented that the Democratic Party and the Elite Republicans want to take over the country to work toward a One World Order.

PBS Moderators Spend First 10 Minutes Of Debate Asking Candidates For Fundraising Advice

MILWAUKEE—After introducing the two candidates onto the stage at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, the moderators of Thursday night’s PBS-hosted Democratic debate reportedly spent the first 10 minutes of the forum asking both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for advice on fundraising. “Senator Sanders, you raised $6.5 million in the 24 hours after winning the New Hampshire primary this week, while Secretary Clinton, you have amassed over $150 million in donations to date; my first question to both of you is:
How did you do that?” said PBS NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill, before following up with a more pointed series of questions about how often each campaign cold-called prospective donors and what specific donation pitches were used in each candidate’s most successful fundraising emails. “We ask that you clearly articulate what kind of merchandising you do.
Do you make a lot selling shirts and bumper stickers, or is it mostly just straight donations? And what about membership levels?” At press time, Ifill was asking each candidate to turn directly toward the camera and clearly say the phrase “Your generous contribution will ensure PBS continues to educate, inform, and inspire” into their lectern’s microphone.
FIX IS IN: PBS Moderators Ignore Clinton Scandals
by Peter Schweizer11
So let me get this straight: on the same day that the Washington Post reports that the State Department issued subpoenas to a family foundation bearing Hillary Clinton’s name as part of a federal investigation, the PBS debate moderators didn’t ask her about it.
While presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been asked about a loan from Goldman Sachs and Donald Trump about bankruptcies in his past (legitimate questions in my mind), a federal subpoena to a foundation where Hillary Clinton recently served on the board doesn’t even warrant a murmur from Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff, two PBS journalists?
As the Washington Post’s investigative unit reported just today, the State Department Inspector General issued subpoenas to the Clinton Foundation as part of a federal investigation. (Why did the Inspector General issue the subpoenas? Did the Clinton Foundation refuse to turn over relevant documents? It’s unclear at this point.) What is clear is that the State Department felt the need to obtain internal documents from the Clinton Foundation as part of their investigation.
It’s also clear that the Clinton Foundation is of interest to the American people. All day it was a ten top trending subject of Facebook, which was the cosponsor of the debate. But it was never mentioned by the debate moderators.
In addition to the ongoing email investigation by the FBI, we now know that the bureau is also investigating the Clinton Foundation. How does this not warrant a single question by debate moderators?
Monumental journalistic malpractice is the only answer.
