In case you missed it: A newly revealed State Department email shows that CNN correspondent Elise Labott coordinated with Hillary Clinton’s aids to discredit Rand during the 2013 Benghazi hearings.
Even I didn’t think CNN would actually go this far.
The liberal media has taken their Clinton sycophancy to a new low. CNN needs to address this bias and lack of journalistic integrity. This email revelation should give Republicans pause as to their coverage and possibility of fair treatment towards Sen. Paul during the next debate. All eyes will be on CNN’s response to their employee colluding with Hillary Clinton in order to attack a prominent U.S. senator on their dime.

Subject: Preview – CNN reporter conspires with Hillary to smear me!
“EMAILS: CNN REPORTER COORDINATED WITH HILLARY AIDE TO SMEAR RAND PAUL . . .”
That was the headline that broke right before Thanksgiving following the U.S. State Department’s release of a trove of emails.
These emails show a CNN reporter coordinated with Clinton staffer to launch social media attacks against me for daring to ask Secretary Clinton tough questions during the 2013 Benghazi hearing!
Shortly after that hearing, emails show she even congratulated the Clinton team stating, “[Hillary] was great. well done. I hope you’re going to have a big drink tonight.”
With the December 15 Republican Debate in Las Vegas rapidly approaching, I have to ask…
Is this a reporter concerned with uncovering critical news to bring to the American people? Or is this a partisan who’s already in the tank for her Democrat candidate of choice?
Tamara, we can’t allow the media’s shenanigans to silence us. We have to break through and take our message of liberty straight to the American people.
The truth is, I’m fed up with stories like this.
First, it was news that former Clintonista George Stephanopoulos tried to hide fat contributions to the Clinton Foundation while masquerading as an objective news anchor.
Then the American people witnessed the utter embarrassment of the CNBC debate.
And now this?
Is it any wonder why recent polls show 60% of Americans don’t trust the news media?
After winning the night with my strong performance during the last Republican debate, my campaign has seen a massive increase in momentum, fundraising and on-the-ground grassroots support.
We’ve posted growing poll numbers both nationally and in key early states like Iowa.
And thanks to your support, we reached $500,000 in our last money bomb!
Tamara, my campaign’s growth over the past few weeks is the biggest story our national media just won’t touch . . .
A big money bomb for my campaign during this most critical time will FORCE their hands and give me a big boost of momentum heading into the next Republican Debate.
It will help silence those in the media who are using their platform to smear me.
And it will help pave the road to the victory you and I are fighting so hard for.
Thank you for your support.
