CNN Failed to Report that Elizabeth Warren Town Hall Questioner is Maxed-Out Democrat Donor


During its recent Elizabeth Warren town hall broadcast, CNN did not disclose that the questioners in the audience were not regular Americans, but were instead Warren operatives. In fact, one of them was a maxed-out Warren donor and CNN didn’t tell its viewers or those in the live audience.

The one questioner in particular offered a question that went viral after CNN’s town hall. But the station never divulged that the man was a maxed-out donor to Warren’s campaign, according the the Washington Free Beacon.

During the October 10 town hall, CNN host Chris Cuomo introduced Texas resident Morgon Cox to the audience as “the chair of the Human Rights Campaign board of directors.”

Cox asked Warren what she would say if “a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.'”

To an adoring crowd, Warren replied saying, “Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that. Assuming you can find one.'”

The moment went viral:

But now we learn that this fellow is a big time Warren donor.

According to WFB:

Cox’s Twitter profile indicates that his full name is “Morgan W. Cox III” and he is a partner at the investment firm Marquis Group. The Marquis Group is located in Plano, Tex., part of the larger Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. FEC filings show that a “Morgan Cox III” from Plano, Tex., who listed his occupation as “investor” donated the legal maximum of $2,700 to Warren’s Senate primary campaign in 2017, followed by two donations totaling $2,700 to her general election campaign the following year. Cox also donated $2,700 to the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund PAC.

Records show that a “Morgan W. Cox III” who donated to the Human Rights Campaign and listed his employer as the Marquis Group also donated to Democratic congressional candidates Gina Ortiz Jones (Tex.), Jennifer Wexton (Va.), Nancy Soderberg (Fla.), and Annie Craig (Minn.). There is no evidence Cox has donated to any other 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.

Once again, we see CNN coordinating with the Democrat Party instead of offering honest news coverage.
