Email Said Bachmann Would Get Few Debate Questions

Michele Bachmann accused CBS News of "media bias" after her campaign was included on an email chain that suggested she would get fewer questions than other candidates in last night's GOP debate, CNN reports.

"In the email chain, a CBS employee notified CBS News political director John Dickerson that Bachmann's spokeswoman, Alice Stewart, had volunteered the candidate for an interview on Dickerson's post-debate webcast. The employee copied Stewart on the email and told Dickerson that she had been cc'd."

Dickerson replied, apparently unaware that Stewart was on the email chain: "Okay let's keep it loose though since she's not going to get many questions and she's nearly off the charts in the hopes that we can get someone else."
