Looks like CNN is somehow playing favorites.

Many Bernie supporters are complaining about comments being deleted.

Now what was that about CNN being "impartial" ?

Come to think of it, Hillary did seem to be a little better "prepared" for the questions and she was quick with the responses.

More than usual?

Hmmm. Maybe Hillary was "prepped" ?

Fuming Bernie supporters: Why is CNN deleting our comments?



Hundreds on Facebook complain about network’s pro-Hillary coverage

Seeing their comments repeatedly deleted by CNN, Bernie Sanders supporters are hopping mad today.

Already feeling the news network’s coverage had become rabidly pro-Hillary in the aftermath of last night’s debate, Facebook users leaving reactions on CNN’s page are now continually re-posting them, knowing they will be quickly removed. There are hundreds in a seeming battle with the network, with no explanation as to why.

Some users and messages appear to be specifically targeted, especially those accusing CNN of having conflicts of interest that make it naturally inclined to back Hillary.

The MSM the GOP or the DNC would never do such a thing. Politics is immune to special interest and money.

Surely its a coincidence.

However, it serves Bernie right for giving her the nomination last night when he closed the door with the email scandal . The American people are sick an tired of scandals ,corruption, and B$ politicians. So no the American public deserves to grill her for her judgement and being above the law.

Gee, I wonder if CNN is in the tank for Hillary? Nah...they're supposed to be 'impartial' in the debate.

Interesting how the machine works! I didn't watch all of the debate but what I did see looked like a lot like a love fest. There's only one candidate that's running for president. The rest are there to legitimize the process. Sorry for all the Bernie fans but Hillery has been selected by the machine.

I am surprised, that people are surprised, that corporate owned media protects corporate owned politicians.

Actually, most social media and focus groups gave the win to Big Bernie. CNN wanted to declare Hillary the winner.
Makes perfect sense CNN would try to hide anything that showed it's result to be wrong.

Same s*** as the last RNC convention with Ron Paul. Now Dem's are getting the same treatment.

When will folks learn it is not their R or D or Other choice but: 'dis ist zee candeedate you vill vote for!"

Well, I certainly don't like the media fawning over Hillary when Bernie won the internet by miles and poor O'Malley who though he started wooden really brought some heat after about 30 minutes or so. People Left of Far-Right have two great choices and sadly are letting themselves be snowed by right-wing Hillary. /rantoff

That said CNN and other outlets though playing dirty do have T&C's for comment sections, I suspect they aren't being followed. And anyway they are wasting time bitching about the wrong thing and in the wrong places. Like it or not, believe it or not... social media is where this needs to happen. Trends and up-votes on Reddit, Twitter and Facebook get noticed. Giving CNN control over your words is silly. Take it to Twitter.

Yep. I was thinking of the parallels between Sanders and Dr. Paul last night. Both of them were constantly being squeezed out of the media by establishment movers.

The difference is that Ron Paul had stances that appealed to liberals but were deal breakers for many GOP voters. With Sanders, the support is there like Dr. Paul but, in his case, there are no particular issues where he is diametrically opposed to traditional democratic values. His stance on gun control is probably the closest thing I can think of but even his views on that are pretty reasonable.

I think that will carry him much further than Ron Paul got.

FINALLY, I am PROUD of CNN!

Look, impartiality is difficult at best to maintain when delivering news. There's a fine line between delivering the news, versus becoming a tool for spreading misinformation for screaming children who pretend to act like adults in support of whatever agenda and platform they're attempting to promote.

CNN, for years, has sucked, not in small part because it's succumbed to the influence of the right wing nutjobs who have been since 9/11 trying to start a war. It's leveraged AP and Reuters as if it's all factual truth, and forgotten to fact check information for validity, which has decreased it and just about every other news source out there and the credibility immensely to the public.

I for one am proud of CNN for taking control of their image and those who might use their comments section for promoting their own causes on the internet.

Let's be clear though. CNN isn't just a news source. It's a story teller.

YOU have the choice to turn to another source for those stories if you don't like their perspective and who they support.

And if you're naive enough to believe that 'good news' should be and is unbiased.

I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.

I mean. To think. That anything is without bias is simply adorable.

I just posted this in the debate thread:

I think anyone who supported Ron Paul all ready knows how low CNN and FOX can go. I just hope it wakes up enough Dem's so we can stand united for at least just one cause and put an end to this crap.




Seems CNN is all ready re-writing history. Their own polls showed Sanders a 70+% winner of the debate and now it now shows Hillary a winner with 80%. They are deleting Sander's supporters posts to try and hush it up but people have grabbed screens and keep re posting I guess. CNN is owned by Time Warner and they are Hillary's 7th largest backer.

mediaequalizer.com...

Now the Dems get to feel what its like to be a Ron/Rand Paul supporter =/ How much longer are we going to let this keep happening, Can we set aside some of our differences and end some of this corruption so we could move forward by the will of the people...

I found it kind of strange today that even Rush and some of the talk Radio heads were saying how great a job CNN did but did not touch this story.

That's how the corporate "liberals" and "progressives" work - through censorship and editing. Al Gore invented the parental warning sticker.

And it proves the kids still can't read-- look what they're getting
roped into from AL lately.

Besides, I thought Tipper built that argument...
"The Federal Government is the entertainment arm of the
military-industrial complex." Zappa to the Parental Advisory

Wow how things have never changed. I still feel cheated that
Bernie flopped into line that easily about Benghazi. Maybe he
got a phone call from Ross...

Obviously CNN is getting secret funding beyond the Cable Companies ratings system "royalties". Candy Crowley interviened for Obama in the second debate.

Is it Soros money funding the hit-men, hit-woman at CNN?

All networks will claim to be impartial. None of them are. They are all just as crooked and corrupt as the politicians themselves. To assume any of the above are telling the complete truth about anything is childish and naive. You are always being lied to and manipulated. Yes, always.

This has been going on for ages, but when they did it to Ron Paul any outcry was just those "paulbots" causing trouble. Now that it's happening to their Democratic golden boy it's finally worth talking about?

Funny how blatantly hypocritical politics have become.
