Now picked to moderate Trump-Clinton debate
It has been announced that CNN’s Anderson Cooper will moderate one of the Presidential Debates this fall. Cooper has been listed as a “notable past member” of the Clinton Global Initiative. According to CGI, membership comes with a $20,000 donation, though according to the Foundation none of these journalists were asked to pay the $20,000 membership fee.
The video above shows Anderson Cooper moderating a session on education during a panel at the 2007 Clinton Global Initiative.
“Honestly, I can’t even remember what the panel was. There were no Clintons on the panel. I think it was on, like, international development aid or, honestly, I have no memory of what it was. But I was the panelist. I was the moderator of a panel of handful of people. I walked in, I did my moderation, I left, I wasn’t paid. I’ve never been back to the Clinton Global Initiative.”
Cooper’s network CNN has also been accused of trading, it’s “ethical purity for exclusivity,” to score an interview with Bill Clinton.
It would seem that CNN and Cooper’s involvement with the Clinton Foundation will undoubtedly raise the question whether or not they can reasonably moderate a debate.
