Politico, a left leaning political website, just contorted itself into a pretzel to cover for Hillary Clinton’s degradation of Bernie Sanders voters.
Hours after an audio recording from a February fundraiser of Clinton deriding Sanders supporters as delusional ‘basement dwellers’ leaked Politico published the story with a headline that read “Clinton mocks Sanders supporters in leaked fundraising recording.”
An accurate headline that reflects precisely what was heard on the recording.
But then Hillary fans started attacking the news site.

Politico caved in a hurry with a more Clinton friendly headline that masks the disdain that the Democrat presidential candidate, who called half of Trump supporters “deplorables” and half of Sanders supporters “basement dwellers,” has for many Americans.

Oh look! Politico changed the headline so not so many saw that HC said millennials were “living in their parents basement”. Sweet of them? https://t.co/RxtG3t2OZv

Politico cowers from Hillary again: Editor’s note: The headline and lede of this story have been changed to better reflect Clinton’s tone
