13. Are you serious? THIS is what you're going after them for?
There is so much rediculous awful anti-journalistic practice among CNN employees. Bombarding someone for using a term that isn't even deroggatory it's just informal is just anti-productive.

I don't know what the context of what you're talking about is. But if he just called a Clinton supporter/allie a Clintonista there's no good reason to chose that to question him about in my opinion.
