Default 'Undecided voters' at NBC-Biden town hall once told MSNBC they were voting for Biden

I don't think they even care that everyone knows how in-the-tank they are...Those who support them will support them no matter what and the ones bothered by blatant political bias are the enemy, so f**k 'em...

'Undecided voters' at NBC-Biden town hall once told MSNBC they were voting for Biden

Quote:
An NBC town hall with Joe Biden billed as consisting only of "an audience of undecided Florida voters" included two Cuban American voters who told MSNBC in August they were voting for the former vice president, according to a Tuesday report in the Washington Free Beacon.

"Welcome to tonight’s town hall, where we are surrounded by dozens of undecided voters and where Democratic candidate Joe Biden will answer our questions and make his case tonight," moderator Lester Holt told viewers at the top of the broadcast on Monday night.

One question at the event came from attorney Peter Gonzalez. Six weeks ago, Gonzalez told MSNBC on Aug. 23 that "if we get four more years of Trump, good luck, and good luck with the future attracting younger voters."

An MSNBC on-screen graphic read "Voting for Biden" underneath Gonzalez as he spoke.


The network promoted Gonzalez's comments on its official Twitter and Facebook pages at the time.

Another question came from Ismael Llano, who voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“Something that Joe Biden said during his speech that resonated with me was what defines America is a possibility,” Llano told MSNBC's Ellison Barber in August.


A third "undecided voter," Michelle Cruz Marrero, did not appear on MSNBC earlier, but has featured several pro-Biden posts on her Facebook page in recent weeks, per the Free Beacon.

So they are using already decided voters to pretend to be "undecided voters"? Most registered voters are totally ignorant when it comes to politics and voters would have to be ignorant as **** when it comes to politics if they don't already know who they are voting for. Not sure why people who are totally ignorant when it comes to politics would go to a town hall meeting or even know what a town hall meeting is.

I agree.

ENOUGH!

Beware the carefully scripted puffball "town halls" that have been organized by CNN and NBC to help Joe Biden's campaign. As Biden makes a virtue out of having tiny, underpopulated "campaign events" for the TV cameras, these provide the fraudulent illusion of Biden engaging with undecided voters. The questions are toothless and designed to promote answers that impress the audience as being thoughtful and measured.

The first words out of NBC anchorman Lester Holt's mouth on Oct. 5 were the following: "Good evening, everyone. Welcome to tonight's town hall, where we are surrounded by dozens of undecided voters." Listening to the questions asked disqualifies that claim.

For example, Holt presented Ingrid Gilliam-Alexander as "undecided but leaning toward Biden." She insisted President Donald Trump was "bullying" Biden at the debate and said: "I'm worried that it knocked you off your game. How do I know that you're able to forcefully lead this country moving forward when being faced with unforeseen challenges and other bullies?"

Surprise! On her LinkedIn page, she posted a video with the hashtag "#joebiden2020."

Or try this Holt introduction: "Our next one comes from Cassidy Brown in Orlando. Voted for the first time in 2016." Brown's question? "My youngest sister is in high school right now. And I knew whenever I was graduating high school and entering college that I wanted to obtain my degree and start a career before starting a family. Having access to birth control and safe reproductive health care was imperative in making that true for me. So, considering the new Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, what are your particular plans to protect women's reproductive rights in the U.S.?"

That sounds like a Planned Parenthood questionnaire, not an undecided voter. Sure enough, on her public Facebook page, Brown reposted a meme in 2019 from the "VOTEPROCHOICE" Facebook group showing a protest sign that reads, "You're pro-life until the baby is poor, transgender, black, gay, Mexican, disabled, sick, etc."

This is ironic since the "right to choose" is often reserved for eliminating disabled or sick unborn babies.

Or try Michelle Cruz Marrero, presented by Holt as someone who "used to be a registered Republican but voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016." She professed, "As a mother of a police officer and the wife of a retired police officer, served 28 years, the term 'defunding the police' is of concern and troubling. ... With that being said, I would like to know what you and your administration's policies in reforming the police — how those will come about, how — how they will be best handled to ensure police officer safety and the public — citizens' safety as well."

It turns out that Michelle Cruz Marrero can be easily found on Facebook posting on the "Cubanos con Biden" page. She's no undecided voter. After the event, she wrote: "Biden was eloquent and I hope that this clarified all questions regarding the false narrative of 'defunding the police' and that he seeks to reform the police and make it a better place for all of us to live in."

The valentine continued: "He is intelligent. He is elegant. He is poised and he has a plan. He does not dismiss COVID and the future of our country rests on this election and a vote for Trump is a vote for insanity. This country needs Biden. We need Biden. ... He will save America and he will restore the country we had before this monster took over."

The proper description for this NBC "News" event is an infomercial. Holt was selling Joe Biden like Larry King hawks Omega XL diet supplements and Prostagenix prostate pills. Can we expect more of the same at the Oct. 15 "town hall" debate, with a much larger audience?

For your next softball question, Mister Biden, let's go to an employee of the Obama-Biden administration...and we will NOT reveal that to the viewers!!!!...

Biden town hall questioner worked as speechwriter in Obama administration

Quote:
A participant in Thursday night's ABC News town hall with Democratic nominee Joe Biden previously worked as a speechwriter in the Obama administration, but was only identified during the televised event as someone who works in "communications," Fox News reported Friday.

The town hall from Philadelphia moderated by George Stephanopoulos included a question from Nathan Osburn, who reportedly worked in the Office of Public Affairs and was director of speechwriting for members of President Obama's Cabinet.

The Twitter bio for a Nathan Osburn says he's a former Cabinet speechwriter.

"They're a group of -- some are voting for you, some have said they're voting for President Trump, some are still undecided, and we're going to try to take questions from as many as we can tonight," Stephanopoulos said.

When Osburn was selected to ask a question of Biden, his profession was only shown as "communications." He was introduced by Stephanopoulos only as a "Philadelphia Democrat."

Here's an even sneakier clandestine ex-Obiden operative for you!

Anna Makanju is currently the person at Facebook who is in charge of “election integrity on the platform”. She was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia (including Ukraine) to former US Vice President Joe Biden.

the only news channels are on the internet; they are partisan but many of them tell the truth regardless.
