CNN was blasted on Tuesday night for siding with Elizabeth Warren over Bernie Sanders during the Democrat presidential debate when the far-left network asked a question that automatically presumed, without evidence, that Warren was telling the truth and Sanders was lying.

The question stemmed from a shady report that CNN published on Monday that claimed, according to anonymous sources, that Sanders told Warren in a private meeting in December 2018 that he believed that a woman could not win the election.

Serious doubt was immediately case on CNN’s report as video clips quickly emerged online from over 30 years ago that showed Sanders stating that he believed that a woman could be president.

CNN’s Abby Phillips asked Sanders: “So, Senator Sanders, I do want to be clear here; you’re saying that you never told Senator Warren that a woman could not win the election?”

“That is correct,” Sanders responded.

Phillips then turned to Warren and asked, “Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?”


The Hill personality Saagar Enjeti responded to Phillips’ question by writing: “Seriously it is outrageous that CNN would take Warren’s accusation as a statement of fact. Media malpractice.”

Daily Caller Editor in Chief Geoffrey Ingersoll tweeted: “Incredible. The CNN moderator asked Warren as if it were de facto true that Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be president. I cannot believe a moderator did not ask her if it was true. She just said straight up what did you think when Bernie said that to you? I’m blown away.”

President Donald Trump blasted Phillips to her face in November 2018 over the types of questioned that she asks, saying to her: “What a stupid question that is, what a stupid question. But I watch you a lot, you ask a lot of stupid questions.”
