Thursday on CNN’s Situation Room, anchor Wolf Blitzer said Sen. Martha McSally calling CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju a “liberal hack” was “disgusting.”
Blitzer was referring to a moment caught on video in which Raju pressed the Republican about whether or not her fellow senators will vote to allow witness Lev Parnas to come forward with accusations against President Trump in his forthcoming impeachment trial. McSally brushed him off as a “liberal hack.” “Well, it’s a key question at this moment…” Raju told Blitzer. “And Martha McSally, as you could see Wolf, did not want to talk about it…”
After playing a clip of the encounter, Blitzer said, “Instead of answering a fair question, she simply called you a ‘liberal hack.’ It was disgusting, it was awful. She should know better. Certainly, you’re one of the most respected congressional reporters up on Capitol Hill.”
No one at CNN is a respected reporter, and Blitzer himself is a liberal hack.
