CNN Debate Moderator Was 


of Clinton Global Initiative

1:09 PM, OCT 13, 2015 • BY MARK HEMINGWAY

CNN host Anderson Cooper, who is set to moderate tonight's Democratic
 debate, was listed as a "notable past member" the Clinton Global Initiative's
 website along with a number of other big name journalists:
The list includes: CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Christiane Amanpour,
Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, NBC’s Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw, New York
Times‘s Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristof, Fox Business Network’s
Maria Bartiromo, Yahoo’s Katie Couric, The Economist‘s Matthew Bishop,
and Financial Times‘ Lionel Barber.
The Clinton Foundation later told Mediaite that none of these journalists were
 asked to pay the $20,000 membership fee required of  members. However,
it's safe to say that access to big name journalists was a key selling point for
paying Clinton Global Initiative members. In a nutshell, Anderson Cooper helped
 Hillary Clinton raise money, and now he's presented as an impartial moderator
for tonight's debate.
