CNN: Anchor Wolf Blitzer wasn't celebrating Clinton nomination
CNN is pushing back on claims that one of its lead news anchors was seen celebrating Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president Thursday night, calling the accusation "absurd."A video circulating online shows anchor Wolf Blitzer dancing to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" while drinking from a glass and waving his hands in the air, apparently at the network's CNN Grill in Philadelphia.
"CNN celebrates Hillary: Blitzer toasts speech, dancing, party!" reads a headline at the conservative Drudge Report, linking to the video.
But a CNN spokesman said Friday that Blitzer was not showing bias toward the Democratic nominee, only celebrating the end of the network's coverage of both parties' national conventions.
