Growing CNN Scandal: Anderson Cooper Knew Gen. Kerr All Along
Gordon Bloyer called Rush Limbaugh on Monday and related what he saw at the YouTube debate where he was one of the questioners who was flown in to participate in the debate.
Here is the transcript from the Rush Limbaugh Show:
CALLER: Right. And so here we all come up there, and Anderson Cooper comes out, and he immediately recognizes the general. He says, “Oh, General Kerr. I’m glad you’re here.” He didn’t recognize any of the rest of us, but he recognized him real easy.
RUSH: He did, eh?
RUSH: Cooper recognized Kerr?
RUSH: Well, he’s been on CNN. We found it. He was on CNN back in 2003, and I think it might have been Anderson Cooper’s show.
CALLER: I’m not sure of that, but, yeah, I saw that on the FreeRepublic.com and they had the complete transcript. But then they took us into the little bus, and as I’m going up into the bus — and I have this on video, and you can see it on YouTube. I had this on video. I’m going into the bus, and you can hear the people on the bus saying, “Oh, welcome, General.” They immediately recognized the general.
RUSH: Who was on the bus? All of you that were flown in?
CALLER: Some of us that were taken up there, and all the people who worked for CNN who are doing behind the scenes stuff in the little office. It’s their headquarters, like the NFL has their headquarters outside the stadium.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
CALLER: They gave us a little speech. I got part of that, you can see that on YouTube.
RUSH: Hey, General, good to see you again — and they claim they didn’t know anything about the guy!
CALLER: First of all, the guy had never had anything on YouTube until August, and the only thing he had was his question. So the question tonight when he’s on TV on a prominent television show should be asked, general, who — and he says two people told him he should ask a question. Well, who gave him the camera? Who videotaped him? Who set him up with a YouTube account? Who put him up there — and you’ll find that on his YouTube account he has now uploaded one video since then, and that’s because YouTube gave every one of us a camera when we got down there, as a gift, and it’s real easy to upload video to YouTube with this camera, a flip video camera.
RUSH: Have you offered to go public with any other media on this to try to explain what happened, and have you been accepted or rejected?
CALLER: Uh, so far nobody’s contacted me. I sent out releases and sent out copies of my video. I explain this on YouTube, on my YouTube site: Gordon Bloyer Show.
And, here Gordon Boyer, the Rush Limbaugh caller, shares his story on the CNN plants at the YouTube Republican debate:
Apparently, all of the CNN folks knew the general and welcomed him to the debate.
