I’m clearly no fan of Bernie Sanders’, but I DO believe the Democrat party worked against his campaign in the last presidential election to make sure QUEEN HILLARY got her turn.
Well… it looks like Bernie might be getting the shaft again by establishment liberals again, because CNN is accused of hiving him a MAJORLY raw deal.
According to Fox News, “CNN has been accused of failing to disclose Democratic Party ties of several attendees who were able to ask 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders questions during the network’s town hall on Monday.”
Looks like the Dems are after Grandpa Bern again, huh?
The CNN event followed other recent town halls featuring Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn; and potential independent candidate, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. But unlike those town halls, many participants who posed policy questions to Sanders appear to have political ties, which was first reported by Paste Magazine.
They basically stacked the audience with a bunch of Democrat insiders.
Paste writer Jacob Weindling questioned whether CNN stacked the audience against the Democratic Socialist by not disclosing the background of some of the participants.
Paste Magazine pointed out that at least four attendees have deep roots in the Democratic Party and the D.C. lobby, and alleged the way CNN described the participants either downplayed their background or did not disclose such ties at all.
LOLOLOL. They called people things like “former biology professor,” and “student.”
Tara Ebersole, who asked about Sanders’ plan for universal health care, was introduced by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer as a “former biology professor,” but her reported LinkedIn page claims her current job is chair of the Baltimore County Democratic Party.
Yunjung Seo, who was described by CNN as a “George Washington student,” is currently an intern for the Democratic fundraising organization, the Katz Watson Group, and was previously a campaign fellow for Hillary Clinton for America according to her reported LinkedIn page. Her question was about how Sanders plans on alleviating student debt.

However, the arguably toughest question of the night was asked by Shadi Nasab, who was referred to as an “American University student” but is also an intern for the left-wing group Public Policy, according to her reported LinkedIn page.
“As we saw in the 2018 midterms, the Democratic Party has become more female, more racially diverse, and younger in age. How can a voter like me feel confident in your ability to represent the party, especially given that your response to sexual harassment allegations during your campaign is that you were ‘a little bit busy running around the country trying to make the case to be elected as president,’” Nasab asked.
What did they list this woman as? “A MOTHER OF TWO.”
What is she ACTUALLY?
The chair of the Charles County Democratic Central Committee.
Of course… this isn’t the FIRST time CNN has screwed the Bern:
During the 2016 election, the network took a lot of heat after it was discovered that Donna Brazile, who was a commentator at the time, leaked questions from a town hall event with the Clinton campaign.
So it appears that YET AGAIN, CNN is not “feeling the Bern.”
