ANNALS OF LEFTIST AUTOPHAGY: CNN goes full conspiracist on Twitter user who posted viral Bloomberg audio.

[Cristina] Alesci, who, by the way, is an alumna of the Bloomberg News empire, added, “We don’t know how he got the sound to begin with.”

It is right there on YouTube! It has been there for five years! Google the damn thing! Also, what do Dixon’s alleged political affiliations have to do with anything? Surely Alesci is not suggesting that this could be a non-story because, well, a Bernie Bro tweeted about it.

“A lot of questions are being asked especially on the timing of this,” the CNN reporter said, “so, the timing here and the mission here all calling into question.”

Alesci then added for good measure that President Trump had already “seized on” Bloomberg’s remarks.

None of this is relevant. None of this has anything to do with the actual news story at hand, which is that a top-polling Democratic candidate is on record endorsing racist, anti-Second Amendment, big-government policies.

The audio, by the way, is pretty bad.

“Arendt had it right,” the late Sen. Pat Moynihan once told an interviewer. “She said one of the great advantages of the totalitarian elites of the twenties and thirties was to turn any statement of fact into a question of motive.”
