To say that CNN has deliberately and unfairly undermined Senator Bernie Sanders’ efforts to gain the Democratic party’s presidential nomination is not a matter of opinion. The fake news organization got caught in the run-up to the 2016 primary secretly advancing Hillary debate questions to give her the upper hand over Sanders.
This is neither conjecture nor speculation. These are facts.
And the ugly fact about the media outlet most known for fake news is that it is wrongfully targeting Sen. Sanders again.
The fake news media created something of a firestorm heading into the recent primary debate. Claims circulated that ultra-liberal Bernie was actually a misogynist. CNN and Democrats usually reserve that designation for Republicans and conservatives, regardless of disgraced ex-Pres. Bill Clinton being accused of rape, and video footage of Sleazy Joe Biden groping women and young girls.
For those who remain skeptical of CNN’s blatant attack on Sen. Sanders, consider the transcript from the recent CNN debate.
“CNN reported yesterday that, and Senator Sanders — Senator Warren — confirmed in a statement, that in 2018 you told her that you did not believe that a woman could win the election,” moderator Abby Phillip said. “Why did you say that?”
“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it. And I don’t want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want,” Sen. Sanders said, completely denying the allegation.
“Anybody who knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman could not be President of the United States.”
“You’re saying that you never told Senator Warren that a woman couldn’t win the election,” Phillips confirmed.
“Correct,” Bernie also confirms.
But the segue to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is where the CNN moderator subtly throws Bernie under the bus, ignoring his rejection of the claim.
“Warren, what did you think when Sanders said a woman couldn’t win the election,” Phillips said as if the allegation were completely genuine and Bernie is a misogynist.
“How did CNN just pretend that Bernie didn’t totally deny that he said a woman couldn’t win and pretend like it was a fact just because Warren said so? It’s not like her entire persona isn’t built on lies,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. “Is the fix against Bernie in again???”
CNN has a long-standing reputation of favoring establishment candidates its rank-and-file can control. Sleazy Joe was a malleable Obama underling and one who consistently fell in line with their left-wing narrative.
Much like President Trump on the GOP side, “Crazy” Bernie cannot be controlled. He’s a guy who speaks his mind, bucks conventional wisdom, and is the only candidate on that stage who voted against the war.
During the debate, CNN routinely allowed Biden to perpetuate lies about the former Iran nuclear deal, being against the war he literally voted for, and even claiming he and Obama defeated ISIS. Now that’s downright crazy.
Officials at the Sanders campaign began noting in December that CNN and others started downplaying coverage even though he consistently polled high. They are sensing the game has been rigged in favor of Biden, despite his faltering mental capacity.
“The Bernie blackout is real — it’s not a figment of our imagination,” campaign co-chair Nina Turner reportedly said. “I don’t want to see any candidate blacked out but certainly not a candidate that is polling in the top one or two and certainly is in the top three of the candidates that could get the Democratic nomination.” The “system is wrong and rigged.”
