    A July 2009 email to Clinton reads, “I just heard from a friend who is wired at Meet the Press that David Gregory is going to ask you about…”

    The mainstream media is notorious when it comes to hitting Republicans with tough questions. It is almost always about dropping them in a rhetorical, no-win box, “How is gay marriage different from segregation?”, or some such nonsense.

    Democrats are never asked questions like this — never asked, “Why do you support aborting a baby far enough along to live outside the womb?”

    In fact, as we can now see, Democrats are given the questions in advance of the test.

    Democrats sure got it good.

    and when a D is asked a tough question - they beat around the bush by:
    1) blaming Bush / and or
    2) not answer the question.
    eg - Debbie Schultz (and more on google)

    PS, I see no need to use Schultz middle name

    Your headline and the article makes it seem that NBC News gave Hillary the questions in advance. That's not what happened.

    A friend of Hillary who had a friend at Meet the Press claimed he knew some of the questions that might be asked.

    If Republicans had this sort of inside dope you better believe they'd take advantage of it.

    How easy it to intentionally funnel these things down through a friend of a friend to escape culpability. Who in the world in their right mind believes that one.

    Now you are in the arena of gossip and speculation, bordering on false witness.

    That she gets her questions in advance only makes her pathetic answers all the more pitiable.

    She commonly flat out refuses to take questions and when she does it is not uncommon for her to not answer such as with the Keystone Pipeline.

    Sigh

    How does a friend get the very questions that will be asked? How does a friend get that information? So no I am not engaging in gossip and no I am not being a false witness.

    This kind of junk is why threads go bad around here. We cannot just agree to disagree without these accusations.

    The title simply says that Hillary was fed the questions in advance. How does that make is seem anything other than exactly what happened? The title is both truthful and accurate. The title implies nothing other than exactly what happened. Hillary was fed the questions in advance.

    What the opening sentence says:

    ...a source within “Meet the Press” was feeding her questions in advance.


    What the article actually says:
    A July 2009 email to Clinton reads, “I just heard from a friend who is wired at Meet the Press that David Gregory is going to ask you about…”

    So we see that it was not "a source within Meet the Press", it was a friend of a friend in Meet the Press.

    Also, it was not question(S) (plural) it was one topic of conversation:

    "You probably already know this, but I just heard from a friend who is wired at Meet the Press that David Gregory will ask you about David Maziar, the Newsweek journalist arrested in Iran."

    How controversial and important is this question?

    So, really, how can Breitbart say, "Hillary fed Meet the Press questions in advance"?

    Really? What questions was she fed in advance?

    Answer: None. She was given a heads up that David Gregory might ask her about a journalist arrested in Iran. No actual question was fed to her.

    It's like being in school and your math teacher says, "Be sure to study the square roots of negative numbers. It might be on the quiz tomorrow."

    Ok well I will just let you have your distinction without a difference and agree to disagree.

    She can't handle hard questions on her own. She either refuses to answer them or gets them in advance.

    No. Saying there might be a question on a journalist that was arrested in Iran is not the same as saying "Hillary's being fed questions in advance."

    She totally handled the Republican led House committee conducting the Benghazi investigation.

    No she didn't. She feigned outrage in order to distract from the real issue like a teenage girl.

    Ok this is getting silly. Just because the exactly worded question was not given to her does not in any way, shape, or form, reduce the fact that the nature and specifics of the question was given to her.

    If you want to play those game go ahead. I'm not buying it.

    I know you don't look at doctrinal issues with this sort of generalities. Why do it with politics?

    You keep responding. :smilewinkgrin:

    Sorry but your characterization is incorrect.

    "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?"

    Is that the answer that you are talking about?

    The one where she lied?

    Because it was neither "a protest" nor "guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans".

    So she did not answer the question - SHE LIED.

    I guess if you can feign enough outrage lying does not matter.
