CNN Debate: Press Room EXPLODES IN CHEERS as Bernie Sanders Demands Media Stop Reporting on Hillary’s Email Scandal

Reporters in the press room at the Democratic Party presidential debate held in Las Vegas Tuesday night exploded in cheers after Sen. Bernie Sanders emphatically called for the media to stop reporting on the Hillary Clinton email controversy.

Two reporters in the press room, Hunter Walker of Yahoo News and Dave Rubin of Ora TV posted to Twitter the reaction of their fellow reporters.

“The entire press room just exploded when Bernie said that about Hillary’s emails. #DemDebate”

“Audible clapping and laughter in the press filing room after Bernie Sanders’ “enough of the emails moment.””

“Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damned emails!

“The middle class Anderson, and let me say something about the media as well. I go around the country talk to a whole lot of people, middle class in this country is collapsing. We have twenty-seven million people living in poverty. We have massive wealth and income inequality. Our trade policies have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know whether we’re going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United.

“Enough of the emails! Let’s talk about the real issues facing America!”

Hillary Clinton warmly shook hands with Sanders after his ringing defense of her email scandal.

Walker also reported earlier that the press laughed at Jim Webb when he had a brain freeze naming all his children.

“Audible laughter in the press filing room as Jim Webb struggled to name his children and their occupations.”

Walker noted he was located adjacent to the main press room.

I should note I’m on radio row as I was a late addition to the debate. It’s kind of an eclectic crew adjacent to the main filing room.”

Rubin posted a photo he took in the press room while Sanders later answered a question about marijuana.
