Skip to comments.Sanders Supporters Shocked to Find Bias at CNN

When the CNN moderators gave Sanders the Trump treatment, the outraged ululations of the Left could be heard from sea to shining sea.
Rolling Stones Matt Taibbi tweeted, This is an unusually vile performance by CNN.
The Nations Elie Mystal raged, Jesus Christ I hate these biased questions from the moderators. How would you keep your plan from bankrupting the country? JUST ASK THE KOCH BROTHERS TO MODERATE NEXT TIME!
HuffPosts Zach Carter griped about CNNs post-debate panel discussion, CNNs crew is just straight bashing Sanders post-debate.
The New Republics Libby Watson whined, CNN is truly a terrible influence on this country.
Hmm Where have we heard that before? Oh, thats right. Conservatives have been making the same point for decades, only to be sneered at by progressives who insisted that such claims were conspiracy theories. In reality, it has long been obvious that CNN operates more like the PR department for the Democratic National Committee than a legitimate news outlet.
The last time Sanders ran for president, CNN commentator Donna Brazile gave Hillary Clinton advance copies of debate questions during the Democratic primary. It was CNNs Candy Crowley who jumped in to back up erstwhile President Barack Obama on a brazen lie about Benghazi during a debate with Mitt Romney.
The DNC is terrified of Sanders. They know he doesnt have a prayer of beating Trump and that the latter would like nothing better than to run against an unrepentant socialist. The problem is that Sanders is doing better than expected in the polls, particularly in Iowa and New Hampshire. If he beats Biden in either or both of those contests, his chances of winning the Democratic presidential nomination will rise dramatically.

Funny stuff. Word is bernie had an excellent fundraising day after the debate.
Welcome to the party!
The Democrats aren’t going to spend 2 billion dollars for Sanders to run for President. His only job is (1) Keeping the loons on the reservation, and (2) Accepting a nice vacation home after the primaries.
Pfft. CNN gave Hillary the questions in advance in 2016.
So basically CNN is the Houston Astros of news channels.
Welcome to the party, pal.
Do these Soviet Socialist Sanders supporters know if Bolshevik Bernie is also a National Socialist?
I think that, in their worldview, bias is perfectly acceptable, desirable in fact, as long as it’s to their advantage. If not, it’s a despicable outrage.
What was the strategy?
What makes warren a better choice?
or is it because he’s in the lead and the powers that be don’t want someone who believes as strongly as Trump does in capitalism or one who believes as strongly in communism as bernie does.
Biden gives them back their fortunes and their status quo.
Biden rabid followers would be trouble for them.
For a bunch that wants free education they’re pretty dense. Every time Bernie runs they get a free education.
Rich and ironic.
They love when CNN does it to Trump.
Well, that would have to be “Koch Brother” now...
Yikes. The Wormwoods are turning on their Uncle Screwtape.

Wow. I wasn’t aware of that one, or I forgot it. That is a great one. Thanks for posting.
He was a genius......................
Yes he was.
I went through a period a while ago where I watched a bunch of old Firing Lines on youtube.
“I’m shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!”
Gee, this is the same CNN where questions were leaked to Hillary before the debates with Bernie...
Whodathunk that CNN would be biased against Bernie?
Stupidity begets stupidity.
