Too much drug $

I’ve been a fan for years but after the last two night CNN Democratic Debate I am seeing your station in a different light.
I was disappointed you used questions designed to create attacks between the candidates, and Bernie was right to point out the next commercial break will be sponsored by a drug company.
Your too biased for me
Good bye CNN

Jake’s coverage of the news is consistently stellar, however, on this day... he excelled. Clips from this episode will be played for years to come - bravo!
