January 24th 2016 --


In the first-ever nationwide march for a presidential candidate, thousands of people in at least 35 cities took to the streets in the “March for Bernie.” Despite the marches going viral on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, national corporate-owned media outlets have, so far, remained silent about the historic nationwide turnout — for many cities, in the midst of a blizzard.


Marching For Bernie

January 30th 2016 --


I am on the other side of the country so posting tweets. THIS IS HUGE GUYS! 3000 people just in New York. The marches were held all over though, check the hash tag.

But the young people don’t vote, they are too lazy to stand in line, show up or actually do anything other than tweet?

Sanders doesn't get media coverage and when he does it's usually negative but that hasn't stopped his surge in the polls and donations. I'm actually looking forward to the primaries and caucuses to see if he'll beat Clinton. Then he'll be off to tackle Trump.

This is actually the first that I've heard of it. And gotta say, I am impressed and excited by their actions.

Personally would like to see more such as these, so long as they remain peaceful.

I don't support Sanders (he's a career politician) but I'd have to say I agree with his policies more than any other person running right now. Though I like his policies, I think these people are counting their eggs before they hatch. If Sanders gets into office he won't do anything I'm afraid because his policies are against the establishment and the establishment will probably kill him before they let him destroy what they've worked so hard for for so long.

469 seats in the U.S. Congress are up for election on November 8, 2016. If Bernie can get in it's time for a Political Revolution, that's what he's calling for from the people.

I hope you're right and that actually happens, but I have a feeling corporate money will always win against a good conscience. There's no money to be made in doing what's right, that's the sad state of the world we live in.

I just saw a poll of likely Democrat Iowan voters where it showed that over 60% of them feel the system is rigged, which included media coverage. The media appears to be carrying Hilldogs water, which has been the case for the past two and half decades.

Restoring our anti-trust laws is so important. Breaking up the media is just as important as breaking up the banks.

I understand you're not a Bernie supporter but anytime you think the fix is in that's when it's time as an American to double down on your contribution to the political process. I have to reject a fix being in as long as we have our democracy in theory at least.

This is not an anti-trust issue, the people not reporting also have their own political bias and it is influencing how they cover all elections. This has been around for as long as there has been politics and making media outlets smaller will not eliminate personal opinions from intruding into reporting.

The media has more influence on a candidate's popularity than the public realize. Hillary has been their candidate from the start.

Sure, I agree with you.

As soon as I see an action like ABC dumping Clinton lover Stephanopoulos then I might believe we have a glimmer of hope of making these elections legit.

I didn't actually see 'thousands' marching, didn't watch all those vidbits.

If they aren't covering him as much in the main stream its because he's not the chosen one.

As an aside, is there anyone marching and chanting Hillary's name?

Scroll down in here…


Holy crap. When I first had this idea I thought I might kill some conspiracy theories about the media. What we found is strong evidence of media bias.

Our analysis shows Bernie Sanders is being ignored by the mainstream media to a shocking degree.

The MSM has lost a lot of it's relevancy. Social Media is the new power house; A fact completely lost on the boomers and geezers.
The Donald better get with the program or be steam rolled by the millennials. All his twitters meet with LOLs and in fact lose him support rather gain more devotees. Trump tweets how rich and smart he is constantly...That doesn't really impress the young folks.

However the msm seeing market share in their eyes will soon latch on the Bernie and give him the recognition he deserves much to the despair of Trump and the rest of the losers. They can only ignore a groundswell of grass roots support for so long. Bernie is not going away!!!!

What do you expect? The media is 'Ready For Hillary'!

People marching has had little effect on politics. I remember the tea party march on taxes, some half a million people marching throughout the country for whatever reason back in 2009, and it did absolutely nothing.

Sanders will get more votes if he keeps offering free things and good feelings.

Exactly. It doesn't help that some media companies are owned by parent corporations which have donated to a particular candidate. CNN is owned by Time Warner, which has donated approximately $501,831 to Hillary's campaign.

Such moves should be illegal, in my opinion.
