<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2015/10/13/cnns-cooper-l…; for more.] CNN&rsquo;s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday was forced to respond to an accusation that he is too close to the Clintons. As first noted on the <em>Weekly Standard</em> (and highlighted on the Drudge Report), the anchor was listed as a &ldquo;notable past member&rdquo; for a 2007 conference he moderated at the Clinton Global Initiative.&nbsp; Talking to Jake Tapper, Cooper assailed, &ldquo;With all due respect to the Weekly Standard, this is total bunk.&rdquo; He complained, &ldquo; There was a story in the <em>Weekly Standard</em> that I guess Drudge picked up on...&nbsp; which said that I&#39;m basically in the tank for Hillary Clinton.&rdquo;</p>
