Ok, if you are anything like me, or value my opinion you’ll want to read this. Since you are here I know you want to know what I am talking about.
The media bias in this election is out of control. I wrote a piece about the 25 year media vendetta against Hillary Clinton and I still believe strongly in that. All the GOP smears never ended up proving fault, illegal behavior, or any evidence of anything done wrong by Sec. Clinton. Did the media, ever even once, attempt to clarify this? NO.
This is why Mrs. Clinton has a ‘cloud of suspicion’ over her head. Unproven allegations and no media outlet saying each and every allegation has been proven false. This bias has morphed directly into her 2016 presidential bid.
Now, today, Bernie Sanders is receiving outrageous treatment. Every reputable news outlet is saying ‘he is done,’ ‘he is berned out,’ he has lost and needs to go home.’ The headlines are endless. All saying Mr. Sanders has already lost the nomination.
I hate inaccuracy in reporting. Reporting must be telling people the facts. That not only no longer exists, it is a pipe dream.
What thinking people know is that we don’t know what will happen next. We will know more on the first Super Tuesday, March 1st. And, even more on the second on March 15th. But, to be writing obituaries now is not only inaccurate it’s dangerous. Why dangerous? Because when people read it’s over for Bernie, or Hillary can’t win, it affects who they will vote for.
Yes, media bias can alter the outcome of our so-called democracy.
Incorrect reporting and incompetent reporters also make me furious. Yesterday I was watching some of the Sunday so-called news shows. ABC ‘News’ reported Mrs. Clinton squeezed by with a win in Nevada. No, actually, she won with a large margin. Close to 6% and over 50% of the vote. We need news sources to tell the truth and report accurately.
Also, on #MTP Bernie Sanders was talking in one breath about his political revolution will change everything and in the other breath saying he lost Nevada because of very low voter turn out. You’d think even the dim Chuck Todd would ask “How can you have a revolution when you can’t get people out to vote?” But, no. Todd, let that statement slide by. Todd’s lack of intelligence and curiosity are astounding.
I want to hear the truth. I don’t hear it. Just because Mr. Sanders lost Nevada doesn’t mean he is done, campaign over with and time to drop out. He lost Nevada. Mrs. Clinton lost New Hampshire. These are facts and need not be turned into a dramatic crisis.
What really irritates me, I think even more than the media bias, is the childish and pettiness going on on twitter between Clinton and Sanders supporters. I really find it astonishing how petty and immature it is. “Clinton cheated to win,” “Sanders is a fraud,” you name it I have heard it.
A message to all of you on twitter who partake in this nonsense: grow up, no one is even listening to you. Learn to speak in facts and not speculation, and remember the goal is to have a Dem POTUS.
