See this article: CNN-YouTube Debate Producer Doubts the Wisdom of the Crowd

"For all the talk about online voter empowerment, the web is still too immature a medium to set an agenda for a national debate, says CNN senior vice president David Bohrman.

"If you would have taken the most-viewed questions last time, the top question would have been whether Arnold Schwarzenegger was a cyborg sent to save the planet Earth," says Bohrman, the debate's executive producer. "The second-most-viewed video question was: Will you a convene a national meeting on UFOs?""

It is a disgrace that CNN picks the videos! This is the kind of question they don't want asked

Bohrman's comments about most watched are disingenuous, the videos selected should be the ones voted on, not most watched. For God sakes, I have to watch a video before I can decide if it should be asked in the debate. Bohrman is making up excuses.

This is a question that should be asked!

CNN/YouTube Republican Debate: Giuliani 9/11 Question Giuliani claims, "American foreign policy had nothing to do with the September 11th. September 11th happened because these people who hate us, hate us because of the freedoms that we have." Giuliani is lying to us. see my question. Think Bohrman would allow this to be asked?

You'll like my idea for US policy for Israel. Freeze monetary and $$ support at 2007 levels, starting in 2008 reduce support by 10%, repeat 10% every year there after. US is like a spouse that covers for and alchoholic, abusive person to keep up appearances. The US support of Israel enables their borish, arrogant behaviour with other countries in the region.
