I have read your links, and it's very interesting to me how differently we both seem to sincerely see things so much differently.
I never said Bernie meeting the Pope was not covered on MSM, my point is the way the story was covered carried a negative narrative that he was
somehow neglecting his campaign duties in NY because he choose to attend the Conference at the Vatican. I agree the whole paradigm of this story was
influenced by the MSM.
As for Bernie partnering with Developers to build a Hotel and 300 ( mostly, what does that mean? ) upscale condos , why is that so bad ? The Hotel
would have generated 100's of local jobs, generate tax dollars for the city and create 300 new homes, creating even more local jobs to build them ! At
the end of the day, the people in that community decided they would rather have a park and stopped the project. We didn't see Bernie bribing
government officials or trying to take the power out of the city to decide. Gezz Bernie just can't win with people who want to condemn him for being
anti-business and also want to point out that he has in the past worked with business. I also find this 30 year old story grasping at straws to
tarnish Bernie's pretty darn clean record in Politics.
I'm obviously very disappointed about how NY's primary went down. I am REALLY trying to watch the news coverage with an open mind and take off my
"Bernie" glasses and look at the results objectively, but I have observed so much blatant bias toward Hillary ,I'm pretty sure this is a "conspiracy"
The news coverage yesterday was shamefully stacked against Bernie, here are a few examples I noticed.
1. Interview on MSNBC were they had a Hillary supporter there "pushing" her agenda , but being told that they also asked a member of the Sander's
campaign to participate in the interview, BUT because the Sander's camp responded at the "last minute" they wanted to participate they were "unable"
to accommodate them !? Seriously ???? Not only did they exclude Bernie's camp, they also implied it was because the Sander's camp somehow "flaked
out" on the interview ?
2. They had a segment where they had reporters out asking people how they were voting.....the 1st 2 people they showed were Bernie supporters who were
deciding at the last minute to switch to Hillary...."because she has so much more experience"......they were both also blue collar workers of
color...break to commercial....this was yesterday morning before I had to leave, so I don't know if they ever interviewed any Bernie supporters.
3. "The Democratic campaign has been very nasty, and that Bernie is hitting below the belt by accusing Hillary's camp of election and finance fraud"
How they managed to spin that one to somehow make Bernie look bad was incredible really ! A month ago this was being hailed as a very respectful race,
and I don't think bringing light to what was clearly a problem with voters being out right denied the right to vote because of some bizarre sort of
computer "clinch" that knocked out thousands of eligible Democratic voters is disrespectful to anyone except those people denied the right to vote
fairly....they won't even play by their own messed up rules now !
4. Last but not least, the incredible "guilt trip" being put on Sander's supporters to unify with Hillary now.....nope, they miscalculated this
I'll end by saying this, a campaign "promise" or more accurately "goal" is not a lie...it's a vision......and if Bernie could get everything done,
which we all know he can't alone...it would still cost less then the Iraq "invasion" and the profits made there by Halliburton and the rest of the
ty for your perspective, but yeah, unlikely we'll ever find common ground here...hagd ...
