Pretty easy for some to pose as a Supporter of any Candidate and become aggressive with an entirely different outcome in mind.


Good point. Have we all forgotten about Clinton's million dollar troll army? Many don't know, but has his own elite troll army that he got for free, because 4Chan considers him the ultimate troll.

I do, having been one. It is ranked as the worst job for good reason. The pay is horrible. Corporations have taken over and it has gotten even worse. Not everyone went with APs story and those that didn't are asking questions. Lots of questions need asked on why this story broke when it did. I do understand the frustration though.


I should apologize, but it's hard.

Reporters used to report. Now they opine.

Yes pretty easy for infiltrators.

Very easy for real supporters because they don't have to "act".

Could be a Hillary trick !!

Right, it could be anyone, and this is why this is not News or Important to anyone with a modicum of sense.

Orchestrated death threats against specific members of the press is "not News"?

For the record...I don't believe Bernie Sanders condones this behavior. I also think this type of widespread coordinated dirty tactics have the unmistakable stench of Soros money behind it.

But of course it boils down to nothing which pretty much explains the MSM today. Agenda w/o Investigation, Scrutiny or Journalism.

AP and FOX swing right more than tarzan can swing on a vine. Bad press of the opponents leads to exposure, exposure leads to votes, and votes lead to election. Its the Yoda philosophy.





The Administration's Press swings right? Surely you jest.

You are right. The entire story , as with the anti-Trump protests , reek of the command from Soros to moveon and codepink.

People talk crap about youtube and others all the time but podcasters are already complimentary to mainstream and for some they only rely on te podcast. Youtube is a good thing, it should be respected ! Never have we had such freedom to express ourselves to the public. I know, its not just youtube but Im not naming all of that.

Does anyone remember death threats levied at reporters or members of the RNC when Ron Paul got shafted?

I don't. I wonder what the difference is...

Several possible reasons, aside from the anti-Bernie, "Socialism is evil" message you're probably implying.

1.) Sanders is still a huge threat to the establishment. Ron Paul as far as I'm aware unfortunately never got such strong support. If we assume it's a false-flag situation of people pretending to support Sanders it makes sense that they'd exist for him but not for Paul.

2.) Sanders has a significantly higher level of support. It's inevitable that he's going to have people on his side that are prone to violence or other things such as that. There are probably a reasonable number of murderers who support him too, rapists, child molesters, who knows. Same with Trump, Clinton, Nixon, FDR, Reagan, Lincoln, every leader of a huge number of people in history. When your message is very broad and your support base is massive, it's extremely mathematically likely that you'll have unsavory types there too (unless your message is directly counter to them.)

3.) Sanders has gotten more than "shafted." A very large number of people (myself included) think that despite the media and DNC doing everything in their power to hold him down (like Ron Paul), what has actually led to the current situation is just flat electoral fraud. That's going to make you a bit more angry than just bias.

It's probably a mix of all three.
