CNN Duped by Clinton Plant" - That was what the headlines were reading heading into Thursday morning following the first ever CNN/YouTube Republican Debate, which at times resembled World War III. There were probably no real winners though experts tended to agree that Mike Huckabee performed well. Depending on who you asked, John McCain and Ron Paul also scored points. And for the most part, the two front runners, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, came off rather weak, as did Fred Thompson for that matter. The real winner then - Hillary Clinton.

At 1/3 odds of becoming the next US President, news began surfacing late Wednesday night that Mrs. Clinton may have planted a retired gay Colonel in the audience to ask a question concerning gays in the military.

It turns out that Keith Kerr, retired Colonel., U.S. Army; retired Brigadier General, California National Reserve, who submitted a YouTube question about gays in the military, is actually a member of Hillary Clinton's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual Americans For Hillary Steering Committee. He's also part of a film production crew trying overturn the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Anderson Cooper acknowledges that CNN messed this up and states that CNN did not know that Kerr has a position within the Clinton campaign and that had they known, they would have disclosed the association.

Did CNN know that retired Brigadier General Keith Kerr was a plant from the Hillary Clinton campaign? The cable news network is so friendly to the Clintons that many have dubbed it as the "Clinton News Network" and there are many that will not take it serious as a news organization because of what they perceive to be a bias.

Keith Kerr a Hillary Clinton Plant: Joe Scarborough Declares CNN Knew

Last night's CNN YouTube debate certainly won't help that image. The network gave a ton of airtime to Keith Kerr without disclosing that he is tied to the Clinton campaign. The network plated dumb, claiming that they had no idea that was the case.


Few are buying that. MSNBC host ripped into the network this morning according to Newsbusters. He said on his show, "I'm not blaming Anderson Cooper. He can't do everybody's work for him. But it is total crap to suggest that nobody in CNN knew that this guy was from the Clinton steering committee, and that somehow Bill Bennett, a conservative that -- let me tell you -- does not check the Hillary Clinton gay and bisexual and transsexual Americans for Hillary Clinton steering committee list every morning. If he knows, don't tell me that somebody at CNN doesn't know, and don't tell me that Hillary Clinton's campaign didn't know."

Ouch! CNN gave a quasi-apology last night on air after they were caught. Since then they seem frightened of the issue. They now look like they are in bed with the Clinton campaign completely
