Andrea Mitchell to Socialist Bernie Sanders: Is Hillary Clinton 'Credible?' 'Authentic?' (NewsBusters)
MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell on Thursday encouraged Bernie Sanders to hit Hillary Clinton from the left, wondering if the self-described socialist senator found the Democratic nominee "credible" or "authentic." Mitchell carefully refrained from labeling Sanders a "socialist," but seemed to question Clinton's authentic liberalism: "Her campaign is supposedly going to raise a billion and a half dollars. Yet, she says she wants campaign finance reform and a constitutional amendment to limit campaign spending. Is that authentic?"
