CNN suggested Dems' support for writers' strike compromised by media moguls' money
Blitzer sucks as usual:


On the November 26 edition of CNN's The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer suggested Democratic presidential candidates were "trying to have it both ways" by expressing support for the strike by the Writers Guild of America despite having accepted contributions from entertainment executives. During the report itself, general assignment correspondent Kareen Wynter stated: "They're speaking out for writers, but the Democratic front-runners have previously accepted donations from senior executives at some of the very companies the writers are striking against." Wynter added: " Clinton , for example, took $4,600 in June from Peter Chirnen, president of the parent company of the Fox Network and Film Studio. That doesn't mean writers will refuse her support." Neither Blitzer nor Wynter explained their suggestion that Democrats are behaving inconsistently in accepting contributions from studio executives and then supporting the writers' strike.

1. So the real story is...
Democrats don't "stay bought?"

Jeez, how horrible.

2. Wait, what?
So because Hillary took a donation in JUNE, that means she should have predicted a writers' strike in November?

Brilliant, CNN.
