The Biggest Loser of Tuesday's Dem Debate Wasn't Any of the Candidates

CNN’s bias was in full force Tuesday evening during the seventh Democratic debate, particularly in the way the moderators clearly favored Sen. Elizabeth Warren over Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Moderator Abby Phillip asked Sanders about the private meeting he had with Warren in which he allegedly told her (according to the network's reporting) that he didn't think a woman could win the election. 

The Vermont senator said the idea he would believe that is “incomprehensible” and pointed to footage of him from 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States. 

SANDERS: 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. Anybody knows me knows that it's incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. 

Go to YouTube today. There's a video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States. In 2015, I deferred, in fact, to Sen. Warren. There was a movement to draft Sen. Warren to run for president. And you know what, I said — stayed back. Sen. Warren decided not to run, and I then — I did run afterwards.

“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?” she asked.

“That is correct,” Sanders responded.

Mind you, CNN does not have Sanders on video saying he didn’t think a woman could be president—the network’s reporting was based on anonymous sources. Instead of treating it as an allegation, Phillip turned to Warren with a question that assumed Sanders was lying. 

“Sen. Warren, what did you think when Sen. Sanders told you a woman could not win the election?” she asked.

Twitter users excoriated the network over the blatant bias.

That wasn't the only time the network showed clear favoritism toward Warren. 

It's no wonder #CNNIsTrash and #NeverWarren are still trending.
