File under it takes one to follow one. Bernie Sanders, a/k/a Comrade Bernie, is quite simply naïve. Bernie believe that socialism leads to utopia, rather than bread lines. Bernie backers, the Bernie Bros, are a naïve as their leaders. These clodhoppers believed that CNN was a news network, from American Spectator:

The Left’s reaction to CNN’s hostility toward Sen. Bernie Sanders during Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate inevitably evokes that classic Casablanca scene in which Renault indignantly declares, “I’m shocked — shocked — to find that gambling is going on in here!” Renault isn’t actually surprised, of course. He’s smart enough to know exactly what’s been happening at Rick’s. The same cannot be said for Sanders supporters and what’s been going on at CNN. They credulously watched for three years as its “journalists” accused President Trump, without a scrap of evidence, of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election and still believed the cable network was in the news business.

Even more amusing, and revealing, is that CNN is getting hit from the left, from Matt Tarri, Rolling Stone:

This time, the whole network tossed the mud. Over a 24-hour period before, during, and after the debate, CNN bid farewell to what remained of its reputation as a nonpolitical actor via a remarkable stretch of factually dubious reporting, bent commentary, and heavy-handed messaging.

The cycle began with a “bombshell” exposé by CNN reporter MJ Lee. Released on the eve of the debate, Lee reported Warren’s claim that Sanders told her a woman couldn’t win in a December 2018 meeting.

Lee treated the story as fact, using constructions such as, “Sanders responded that he did not think a woman could win,” and “the revelation that Sanders expressed skepticism that Warren could win.”

More, at this alleged meeting there were one two people in the room, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The latter alleged the former made a particular statement. A statement Sanders denied. This is what is called a he said/she said. But not case for full-blown idiot CNN quest:

Then [Jess] McIntosh said this: I think what Bernie forgot was that this isn’t a he said/she said story. This is a reported-out story that CNN was part of breaking. So, to have him just flat-out say no, I think wasn’t — wasn’t nearly enough to address that for the women watching.

Aside to McIntosh, there were two people in the room, one of whom is an habitual liar. No many time Warren tell the story and how many times it get passed on is still all Shiff, he said/she said, and rumor.
