Leaked CBS Memo Backs Bachmann 'Snub' Charge

• World Net Daily via e-mail

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.
But despite often vociferous attempts to weigh in, the moderators chose other candidates.
Now the Bachmann campaign is going public with evidence CBS News planned all along to snub her.
Keith Nahigian, Bachmann’s campaign manager posted on her Facebook page an email exchange between CBS News political director John Dickerson and correspondent Caroline Horn in which Dickerson suggested before the debate "she's not going to get many questions."
Nahigian commented that the memo represents "concrete evidence of what every conservative knows – the liberal mainstream media elites are manipulating the Republican debates by purposely suppressing our conservative message and limiting Michele’s questions."
(Editors note - I notice the subject of the e-mail has to do with a 'webshow' that Bachmann is to be guest of - could this be related to an event other than the Presidential Debate?)

Ahhh - I get it now!  According to Politico, the 'webcast' referred to in the e-mail was regarding the 'post-debate' webcast - not the debate itself! From Politico:

And Rep. Michele Bachmann produced a pre-debate email from newly minted CBS political director John Dickerson, mistakenly sent to a Bachmann staffer indicating that Bachmann is “nearly off the charts,” “not going to be getting many questions,” and probably wouldn’t be even be worth inviting to a post-debate webcast.

“Bachmann is at 4 percent in the polls and has been for a while. Other candidates aren’t,” Dickerson responded. “I sent an email based on that.”

CBS’s McNair also cited the poll numbers, adding, “It was a candid exchange about the reality of the circumstances.”    *******************************   Still, the onus of “not going to be getting many questions,” is still there as proof of what was to come IN THE DEBATE there's no doubt about that. - Ed
