Should CNN get rid of Corey Lewandowski and other surrogates?
CNN’s reliance on Trump surrogates to provide defense for a “candidate who doesn’t exist” has come under increased scrutiny over recent weeks, with their decision to hire former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who was still receiving payment from the Trump campaign, as a paid political analyst.
There's a long history of surrogates for political candidates in the United States. Lewandowski and Brazile (before she was fired) provided useful insight to the campaigns, especially when Hillary or Donald are unable or unwilling to go on air.
