If you don't think a question is legit, don't ask it. If you do, and you're called to defend it, you need to do so, not relapse into "What had happened" mode. I don't know how objectivity is served by being afraid of your own questions. Newt Gingrich knew the rules. He's defending his brand. CNN should defend theirs. Gotta say, Bill O'Reilly--to his credit--would never go out like that.
Sorry I'm late. Too much Civil War on the brain.
