LOL: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Calls Out Gloria Borger For Having Bad Sources (VIDEO)

You’ve got to love it when CNN eats itself. Things became quite awkward Friday evening when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ripped Gloria Borger for having bad sources. The panel was discussing the replacement of Reince Priebus with General John Kelly. Borger was explaining her sources were feeding her conflicting information, when Blitzer out of nowhere began chiding her. 

Washington Free Beacon reports:

“I think in a way the Reince Priebus departure is not a surprise, although we did get pushback on it today,” Borger said. “But we had heard

“When you say pushback, a lot of our viewers don’t understand that,” Blitzer interrupted. “Are these people simply out of the loop? They don’t know what they’re talking about? Or are they lying?”

Borger looked taken aback.

“Uh, it could be a little bit of both, and it could also be that the person involved didn’t know at that point,” she said. “I mean—you know, Wolf, it’s hard to know. All I know is you’re only as good as your sources, and you have a source that tells you that Reince Priebus will be gone, and then you have a good source that tells you that’s not the case.”

“Well, clearly the sources that were pushing you away are not good sources, so you’ve got to be careful with those sources down the road,” Blitzer said, as Borger laughed. “Either they don’t know what they’re talking about, or they’re lying … That’s my experience as a reporter.”
