“The Daily Caller is a propaganda organization,” Dean, the former governor of Vermont, said. “I’ve read The Daily Caller. I know what’s on there. Look, you got — there’s conservatives and then there’s right-wingers. The right-wingers are all about propaganda. Conservatives have a set of principles that don’t happen to be the same as mine but they are reasonable and you can do business. That’s how I differentiate that.”
Moments earlier, Dean ranted against the “thin-skinned and sanctimonious” press and called National Review “crap.”
“I grew up when the left had all the crazies,” he added. “Today the right has all the crazies.”
