Los Angeles, (ENTRAVISION).- On Monday CNN held a forum in which the three Democratic presidential candidates in the United States, presented their proposals within a week of the Iowa Caucus. During the event, a particularly incident caused viewers to suspect that the network had manipulated the discussion.
All televised debates and forums of the presidential race have had a section of questions and answers, and although it is assumed that the organizers have control of the questions that will make the audience, this time one of the participants seemed to suggest that “someone” had told him what to ask.
“I can see why they gave you this question,” said Brett Rosengren, a student at Drake University, before directing his question to former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
The youth voter’s nerves were evident as he began his question referring to Clinton as “Secretary Sanders” then correcting himself and asked her, “Which of our previous presidents has inspired you the most and why?
Twitter users were less concentrated in the former first lady’s response (she did not elect Bill President by the way) and instead focused on the words the young man suggested had been indicated to ask.
The young man tweeted that if it was his question, but explained that it could have been for any of the three presidential candidates and the network chose the question to go to Clinton.
The forum offered the candidates the opportunity to discuss their proposals without the 60 seconds time limits used in the debates. Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley discussed the core issues of their platforms and were encountered with questions from the audience.
