The Boston Globe reports that CNN planted a question asking Democratic Presidential candidates about their preference for Macs or PCs. The debate occurred last week in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall, and was sponsored by the Rock the Vote organization.
Brown University student Alexandra Trustman said in an online forum that she was handed the question by CNN producers who, she claims, “wanted to modulate the event with various types of questions.” CNN did not respond to requests for comment.
For the record, Carol Moseley Braun indicated that she uses a PC, while her son prefers the Mac. Howard Dean is a PC user; the Reverend Al Sharpton uses a Mac; Rep. Dennis Kucinich has a PC; Sen. Joseph Lieberman indicates that he uses “hand-held wireless.” Wesley Clark, Sen. John Edwards and Sen. John F. Kerry did not respond. (Rep. Richard Gephardt was not present.)
