Why people hate the press

To the Democratic debate Tuesday night in Des Moines.

It contained my favorite panel-candidate moment of this cycle.

Bright young woman journalist: Sen. Sanders, I do want to be clear here, you’re saying that you never told Sen. Warren that a woman could not win the election?”

Sanders: That is correct.”

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

Warren: I disagreed.”

It was like Judge Judy on drugs:

Ernie, did you hit Peggy on the head?”

No, of course not.”

Peggy, how did you feel when Ernie hit you on the head?”

The moment went uncorrected. This is why people hate the press.
