Things everyone knew...

...because people are not as stupid as the media wants to believe.

Donna Brazile finally admits she shared debate questions with Clinton.

Why would any rational person not think that the media didn't also share debate questions with Clinton?

You ask: "Why would any rational person not think that the media didn't also share debate questions with Clinton?"

Answer: Rational people would believe this as evidence is presented in each individual case. In the case of Donna Brazile, she was caught red handed and CNN, her employer, publicly disgraced and fired her from her job. I have seen no evidence that Fox News leaked questions to Donald Trump or anyone else prior to the debates they hosted, so as a rational person I don't believe that happened. Neither should you, Peter.

Your thesis is that we should give the benefit of the doubt to people who have already been caught engaging in bias?

How did Donna Brazil get the questions?

Who at CNN shared the questions with her?

Why would CNN share the debate questions with the head of the DNC and a known Clinton ally?

Is there any doubt that CNN wasn't overwhelmingly biased - perhaps totally biased - for Clinton in the general election?

If CNN was willing to submarine Sanders - who was a socialist - why would they have treated Trump better?

There comes a point where the evidence of bias and habit is so strong that the burden shifts, particularly when the evidence is not available to both sides.

Wikileaks provided evidence of thoroughgoing media corruption. The burden has shifted.
