CNN says voters were unhappy that GOP candidates didn't discuss healthcare and education. Maybe that's because CNN didn't pose the questions.

On CNN a few minutes ago, reporter Dana Bash said that voters in a CNN focus group were unhappy that Republican candidates didn't spend more time last night talking about education and healthcare. What she didn't say: CNN, which controlled the questions that were put to the candidates at last night's debate, didn't choose any about education and healthcare.
