Mainstream commentators are insistent that the outpouring of enthusiasm for Sanders’ progressive vision is meaningless.
Is the Media Intentionally Not Covering Bernie Sanders?
Ever since Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy for president of the United States, 1there is one question that has been raised, at least with me. That question is, is the media intentionally not covering Bernie Sanders? To me, the answer is increasingly obvious, yes they are.
Despite the fact that Bernie Sanders draws increasingly larger clouds to every venue where he appears, it seems to media fails to give him the coverage he deserves. It’s almost as though our media is trying to rig the election, mostly in favor of Hillary Clinton. Instead of giving him the coverage he deserves, and has earned, they continue to ignore him and the momentum Bernie Sanders has gained over the last few months.
Whatever happened to the “good old days” when our media was interested in only covering the news and reporting it, supposedly in a fair and balanced way, instead of being part the news? In this case, their negligence of covering the story of Bernie Sanders has become almost blatant in its lack of balance and fairness. It would be really nice if they chose to actually tell the truth for a change, instead of trying to influence voters, mostly in favor of Hillary Clinton. After all, how do you ignore the fact that Bernie Sanders is often drawing crowds of over 10,000 people. He already holds a record for the most people at a campaign rally. What more does the media need to give Bernie Sanders the coverage he deserves?
This article highlights how the Washington Post is writing off Senator Bernie Sanders in his quest to be president. They seem to be writing him off as though he was some kind of weird phenomenon, instead of a viable presidential candidate. As someone who supports Bernie Sanders to the point where I am actually going to change my party affiliation from the Green party to the Democrats just so I can vote for him, I really resent the negligence the media has shown about giving him adequate media coverage.
I really wish the media would start doing their job properly. Stop trying to influence the election, and just report it fairly with some balance and fairness.
