Reporters Caught Mocking Romney on Politico Live Stream (Update: Buzzfeed Busted!)
October 30, 2012 - 9:15 am
The things you learn on Twitter:
Reporters overheard on politico live stream speculating before Romney event that there is “a 40% chance that he says something stupid.”

Names and affiliations would be nice to know.
This is far from the first time members of the allegedly non-partisan media have been caught showing their partisan bias. A hot mic caught reporters coordinating their attack questions for Mitt Romney at his Sept 12 press conference on the Benghazi attack. Yahoo! news DC bureau chief was caught on tape racially mocking the Romneys during the RNC convention.
Yahoo! fired him, and then Politico hired him.
Update: The snide reporter was none other than Buzzfeed’s own McKay Coppins.
Looks like my snide comment, caught on livestream, was wrong: Romney got the tone just right at this event in Dayton.
