Gloria Borger is an American political pundit, journalist and reporter who currently works for the Cable News Network (CNN). Borger is perceived as highly controversial by a good number of Americans. The authoritative pro-Democratic journalist is known for her bias towards anything Republican-related. This has made her a subject of backlash a number of times.
Like her infamous 2011 interview with Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul where she provoked the Republican to anger by asking him about the 1980s and 1990s racial and homophobic newsletters published in his name.
It was rumored that Ron Paul got so infuriated that he stormed out of the interview. However, CNN later released a footage to debunk the rumor.
Nevertheless, Borger has had a good number of outstanding moments in her career. As a member of the team on CNN’s 2012 US elections nights coverage, Gloria received a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Live Coverage. In 2008, she helped win CNN a Peabody Award for her coverage of the 2008 Presidential Primary campaigns and debates.
