No, CBS, Bernie Sanders Did NOT Call ISIS 'Marvelous' (Updated)

CBS has a glaring error. Will they fix it?

CBS has a horrible error in their transcript, one we would all hope is corrected quickly.

Look at Bernie Sanders' reference to ISIS in the transcript below, where CBS claims Sanders called ISIS a "marvelous organization:"

Now watch the video above, and you'll see that he called them a "barbarous organization."

There's a big difference, and if CBS doesn't correct that fast, they're going to set wingers off on Bernie in a big way.

Get on it, CBS.

Update: The transcript is now corrected. But do they have no proofreaders? You don't even have to go word-by-word to know he would never have said "marvelous."

Can you help us out?
