If you need further proof of the existence of the Democrat-media complex, here it is. On Wednesday afternoon, Rebekah Metzler demanded that Gov. Bobby Jindal leave Barack Obama alone.
According to Metzler, Obama is “old news.” She also demanded that Jindal “find a new boogeyman.” So who is Rebekah Metzler, you might ask? According to her Twitter bio, she happens to be the “Breaking News Editor” for CNN Politics. That’s right — she decides what’s news and what isn’t.
Memo to Bobby Jindal: Obama is old news. Find a new boogeyman.

Here’s her Twitter bio, at least as of this writing:
@rebekahmetzler So he's no longer president? News to most of us.

@rebekahmetzler Are you going to tell Obama to give up the Bush boogyman?
— Jeff Dunetz (@yidwithlid) October 29, 2015
Good question. Probably isn’t ever going to happen, though.
@rebekahmetzler you said this about Bush in 2008, right?
— Wrecker (@Article58) October 28, 2015
Another very good question.

Was her statement racist?

Why, yes, it could very well be…

But wait, she managed to attack former President George W. Bush, who hasn’t been in office since Jan. 2009:
Is O'Malley blaming Clinton for the economic collapse that happened under Bush? #DemDebate

So, Obama is old news and everyone should lay off, but it’s okay to bash George W. Bush? Can you say “hypocrisy?” Or maybe that’s just the CNN model for what constitutes “breaking news.”
@rebekahmetzler Remember, folks… there's no bias in the media.
— Eggscuse me? (@NetConscience) October 28, 2015
At least, that’s what everyone claims…
One person gave Metzler the scolding CNN should have:
Rebekah: you are supposed to be a journalism professional. Fucking act like one.
