This is yet one more example of just how childish and unprofessional these partisans disguised as "objective" reporters are -- and it gives you a hint of what Romney's been up against throughout this entire campaign. Not just from the likes of BuzzFeed, and they're bad enough, but from a media atmosphere so stacked against Romney and in favor of Obama that anyone pretending to be an "objective" journalist can feel comfortable popping off like this.
It's also a look at how comfortable these elitist jerks are behaving this way amongst themselves when they think no one is listening. I have no issues with reporters joking around, but it's no coincidence that you never ever hear this kind of thing coming from the "objective" media about President Obama.
But it wouldn't be fair to single Coppins out. Accidentally, he just proved once again who 99% of these people are, and why they must be defeated. Coppins isn't the problem. If he was, he wouldn't have felt that his childish wishful thinking would be amusing to his peers.
This is reminiscent of what we heard from David Chalian, the former Yahoo News political director fired for saying Mitt and Ann Romney are "happy to have a party when black people are drowning."
Looks like my snide comment, caught on livestream, was wrong: Romney got the tone just right at this event in Dayton.
A hot mic is the only thing that trumps too much booze when you really want to know what is on someone's mind.
