WATCH: CNN Cuts Bernie Sanders OFF AIR After He Calls Them ‘Fake News’

CNN was interviewing Bernie Sanders this afternoon, when Sanders made a “joke” calling CNN “fake news”. But the producers at CNN evidently didn’t think it was very funny.

First, they embarrassed Bernie by cutting off his audio feed so he looked like a fool.

Then they used that ‘technical glitch’ as an excuse to cut him off the air completely.

Here’s the video:


They eventually had Bernie Sanders back after the commercial break, and started off the conversation with the host reminding the audience that Sanders was just joking when he called CNN “fake news”.

It seems like CNN meant to send a message: They don’t even want you joking about them not being credible, when you’re a guest on their network.

Here’s a compilation of other times that CNN has cut the feed on their guests:

    HAHA, wow, haven’t seen that before

    CNN is infamous for cutting feeds. They’re partisan hacks only interested in trashing the Right and pushing the Lefts talking points. I read somewhere Nickelodeon beat them in ratings recently…I didn’t even know Nickelodeon was still a thing. CNN is tanking fast and is only staying afloat from private donations.

  • Maintenance Renegade

    This practice seems to be really spiking, it used to be reserved for conservatives but now they’re just doing it to anyone on their own side who goes off script or gets the least bit critical of them. Was listening to an NPR broadcast a week or two back and they just cut to a promo right in the middle of one of their own handpicked analysts speaking because he was starting to contradict the narrative.

    Anyway CNN is cooked, Bernie may be a doddering old fool but he’s got a fanatical following among the progs. I wonder who the hell their key demographic even is at this point, off the top of my head I’d wager it’s mostly people Bernie’s age with sub-average IQs.

    where’s the video

  • Bob Edwards

    CNN is a ClusterFu*k

  • fnd

    Aww shucks lol

  • Silence Dogood

    Too fucking funny.

  • Mr0303

    This seems to be a legit technical issue, but it would be funnier if they set up an automated algorithm to cut off anyone who says “fake news” on the air.

  • Memorable Event – A Deplorable

    Next they will time-delay with a ten second buffer to allow editing. Live is just to revealing for them.

  • Renaissance_nerd

    Bernie is a communist and CNN blows goats for quarters.

  • Troy Wilkinson

    CNN now censor too suit lol. Paranoid much?

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    lol…. Funny coming from Sanders who had his honeymoon in the Soviet Union.

  • Zanting

    lol.

    • Perrico de los Palotes

      Good to see you here!

  • One-Eye

    I love that the ‘fake news’ tag has stuck to them and they can’t do anything about it.

    It must be driving them up the fucking wall. It’s like how the Right cheerfully adopted the ‘deplorables’ tag and turned it around to represent the Left’s stupidity and intolerance of ideas.

  • Typical

    They can pretend all they want, but no one’s buying it anymore.

  • Kellen Joel

    Damn. I thought that Sanders was a crazy old man, but after this, he’s cool in my book. As for CNN, I hope they get fucked to Hell, because as Bruce Wayne said, “when your golden boy saves a cat out of a tree, you write a puff piece” (I’m paraphrasing, but you get the idea)
