Now this is just a quirk of my personality but, if it were me, and I thought a reporter was being untruthful and unfair, and he worked for a network that misrepresented the facts and made stuff up, then I would not call on @Acosta because this would invite the very evils I abhor.

We don't know why CNN did a town hall with Howard Schultz, who is not a declared candidate and has no visible support. They won't explain it.

We don't know why CNN hired Sarah Isgur Flores, a political operative who joined in culture war attacks on CNN. They won't explain it.

Over the last few days, it's become clearer and clearer to me that, without intervention, coverage of the 2020 campaign is likely to be a disaster for everyone except Trump and his core voters, who want to watch it all burn anyway. In this thread I describe the danger I see. 1/
