Reporters Whoop and Cheer as Bernie Sanders Says Reporters Shouldn't Be Reporters

"Joey, have you ever sucked on The Man's teat?"

What do mainstream American reporters and Bernie Sanders have in common?

They style themselves as speaking Truth to Power when in reality they are sheep bleating what they think the establishment wants to hear.

Bernie, you're no real socialist (bless them). You are a fraud and a stooge.

CNN Debate: Press Room EXPLODES IN CHEERS as Bernie Sanders Demands Media Stop Reporting on Hillary’s Email Scandal (by Kristinn Taylor Oct 13th, 2015): 
Reporters in the press room at the Democratic Party presidential debate held in Las Vegas Tuesday night exploded in cheers after Sen. Bernie Sanders emphatically called for the media to stop reporting on the Hillary Clinton email controversy. 
Two reporters in the press room, Hunter Walker of Yahoo News and Dave Rubin of Ora TV posted to Twitter the reaction of their fellow reporters. 
“The entire press room just exploded when Bernie said that about Hillary’s emails. #DemDebate” 
“Audible clapping and laughter in the press filing room after Bernie Sanders’ “enough of the emails moment.”” 
“Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damned emails! 
“The middle class, Anderson (Anderson Cooper, a member of the billionaire Vanderbilt family, and the debate host), and let me say something about the media as well. I go around the country talk to a whole lot of people, middle class in this country is collapsing. We have twenty-seven million people living in poverty. We have massive wealth and income inequality. Our trade policies have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know whether we’re going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United. 
“Enough of the emails! Let’s talk about the real issues facing America!” 
Hillary Clinton warmly shook hands with Sanders after his ringing defense of her email scandal. . .

  1. All I have to say about that is I find it amazing that everyone forgot about the thousands of emails that W "lost". Oops.

  2. I guess the old coot isn't aware that Hillary is being investigated by the FBI for mishandling classified documents.

  3. Bernie Sanders hatched a scheme
    to rant an old progressive theme.
    He left the greening mountain heights
    to bellow forth for Social Rights,
    descending to our nation’s valleys
    milking the faithful at his rallies.
    Mr. Sanders sold the farm,
    sounded socialist alarm,
    trading professorial tweeds
    to bloviate for human needs.
    Setting lefties all a-twitter,
    bartering the sweet for bitter,
    he glared through academic glasses
    at the doubtful working classes
    wondering why they failed to note
    exactly how they ought to vote.
    Sanders patched up race-relations
    fixing holes with reparations,
    working up his magic wonder:
    horsey voice of righteous thunder –
    till the clouds hung heavy and gray
    the portent of a darker day.
    Warming up leftover Hope
    sparing no change for hangman’s rope,
    sputtering — he blew a gasket
    redistributing our basket;
    scolding, bellowing, pumping fist
    and waving fingers from the wrist
    (like Politburo retro-chic:
    a tousled old white-headed freak).
