Why Would Wolf Blitzer Want Hillary to Win?

This post, written by Manila Ryce, originally appeared on The Largest Minority

In honor of the terrific job Wolf Blitzer and CNN did in moderating the most recent "debate" in Las Vegas, I thought I'd dig out this blast from the past.

In a recent episode of Hardball, Ed Schultz was asked why he thought Wolf would want Hillary to be elected president. One reason could be that she's the most pro-war candidate who supports Israel's ongoing occupation, ethnic cleansing, and oppression of the Palestinian people. Of course, "Hardball" is anything but, so you're not allowed to say those sorts of things. As Clinton stated in the last debate, she favors security over freedom, just as the Zionists and Neocons do. Here's one disgusting speech in which she declares her unconditional support for the inhumane practices of the Israeli government.

Blitzer himself is a former editor of AIPACs monthly publication, the "Near East Report". It doesn't look good when a network which claims to be "the most trusted name in news" hires a propagandist within such a powerful pro-Israeli organization to disseminate "objective journalism" to the American people. Hopefully, the following debate can offer some context to the abomination we saw just a few nights ago. Corporations such as Time Warner are pure tyrannies. It is in their best interest to crush democracy by limiting legitimate debate within our society. They too believe as Hillary does, that the importance of their security trumps the freedoms of the many.
