Drudge Gets Wolf Blitzer Wrong: I Was at CNN Party Too

Over at the Drudge Report, the estimable Matt Drudge has this headline:


From Drudge the link takes you to this story in the American Mirror which blares:

VIDEO: CNN Wolf Blitzer drinks wine, dances to celebrate Hillary’s nomination

The Mirror story focuses on a CNN party after the close of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, capturing CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer and Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger “drinking wine and dancing with delegates as ‘Sweet Caroline’ played over the loud speakers at the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention.” The short piece closes with this sentence:

“It was the perfect image of the media and Democratic cabal.”

Respectfully? The fly in the ointment of this story is, well, me. As a CNN commentator myself — regularly identified accurately as a “Trump supporter” — I was at exactly this very party. Ssshhhh. I even danced (gasp!) — with Gloria Borger. A tape, I assure you, that will never see the light of day because I don’t have the time to win Dancing With the Stars.

This CNN party had zero to do with celebrating the nomination of Hillary Clinton (Really? I — a vigorous Trump supporter — would be celebrating that? I don’t think so) and everything to do with celebrating the end of two intense work weeks in Cleveland and Philadelphia for both the RNC and the DNC. In fact, the others captured on that tape were not delegates — this was not a party for delegates — they were CNN staffers, a number of whom I have gotten to know. Any implication otherwise is incredibly unfair to Wolf and Gloria and for that matter everybody else who was there — again, me included.

So. For the record. The story is wrong. The implication in the story is wrong.

End of story.
