No I will NOT stay silent about the blatant bias demonstrated during the DNC primaries. They (the DNC and the MSM) actively did it in 2016 and AGAIN in 2020 to get sleepy Joe into the hot seat. They're a bunch of cheats and I'm sick of being told to get over it. If this was Biden his supporters would be screaming in the streets.


Pekary further explained that she couldn't speak for the whole network, saying that “the list was unique to The Last Word" (The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell show) and, presumably, did not come from MSNBC’s higher-ups.

While the show or the network itself has yet to comment on Pekary’s claim, it’s not the first time the cable channel faces accusations of muting non-mainstream political voices.

Late newsman Ed Schultz, who worked for MSNBC before joining RT America, claimed in a 2018 interview that he was barred from covering Bernie Sanders’ presidential bid announcement five minutes before he was to come on air. Schultz said that he received a last-minute call from then-president of the network, Phil Griffin, who told him he was not “covering this.”

RT

I hate using RT but they're the only ones reporting this at the moment. One of my favorite YouTubers Kyle Kulinski is set to report this further in his next show on Secular Talk. People need to wake up. Establishment parties are ACTIVELY pushing out change candidates, the DNC is a particularly outstanding example. Bernie was to bring about REAL Progressive change but instead we ended up with Rhino Lite Biden to continue to same old story in DC.

Whatever. Bernie was always just a useful idiot.
He was never going to be anything more than
that angry old white man.

Just like Biden.

The media is a joke!
Orders from headquarterz.

Angry at the establishment for keeping the average American down? It's no wonder the same old continues in DC. We've got people like you en masse.

Respectfully, remember the time you used RT as your sole source seeing as I see you regularly attacking other members sources.

I do not however, disagree with your assertions. I think Bernie Sanders was the more popular candidate twice within the DNC base and twice he was robbed of the opportunity to stand for election as president.

I don't particularly like the guy, I am a fan of a fair fight though and the best person winning.

I think that’s bad, but she does say it was only the Lawrence O'Donnell show.

Of course, all of the MSM and alternative media now too, is pretty bad.

Its got down to political partisan entertainment.

In America, the CIA and corporate interests have controlled the MSN for a long time.

As for RT, they are a controlled " news" site just as bad as anything in America.

I am slightly amused that even before the election is
settled the msm outlets would need to craft a way back
to "redemption". Lost cause, and not just because they
failed to report on any truth for the last 6 years.

They actively suppress all truth and report only on
events that shape the narrative they are ordered
to support. Before Obama wanted to censor the internet
people learned that all these talking heads are basically
owned by the same news corporation.

Bernie, lol. How many houses does one socialistic need?
Your manufactured "outrage" is also amusing.

Bernie and Biden ARE the D.C. establishment.

Yep, people like you thinking lifetime politicians,
especially old white men lifers (the bane of the
progressives hahaha) are going to save America.

Bernie would have lost to Trump, IMO.

The Dens believed it was vital to nominate a non too radical person so Trump could be beaten.

If they believed that then they can justify their actions.

No media outlet I know of is free from things like this.

Glenn Greenwald just left the supposed radical Intercept claiming suppression of his ideas

Bernie’s fans are as passionate as Trump’s fans.

But, I don’t think the numbers would have been enough.

I think you may be right. Biden is the middle of the road establishment guy that all factions could get behind with the correct running mate.

Agree, every media outlet has it's own bias and agenda dictated to them.

Ole Bernie's a choker. He just bends over and takes it.

Bernie Sanders doesn't have a backbone, he could of exposed Joe Biden and he could of exposed the rigging of the Democrat party nomination. They must have some dirt on him or he accepted a payoff not to fight it.

MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, ABC and NBC all get told what to not cover. It's nice to see Fox News paying the price for stabbing conservatives in the back.

Bernie sold you and all his other followers that propelled him onto the stage, out for a house or two.

The only change Sanders is about lies in his pockets.

This is hilarious.

You think the DNC screws over their own candidates, but it is absolutely outside the realm of possibility that they would try to cheat against their opponents.

Psssh. He's basically on deaths door. And I say this as a Bernie supporter. Dude had enough money to live out his last few years. Money may be the center of Trumps universe, but it doesn't mean that it is the same for everyone.

The more despicable action is Bernie’s acceptance. The media is well known for collaboration with establishment DNC and RNC candidates.

The primaries in 2016 were a total fraud. Yet he went along with the DNC who rigged him out of his win.

Then he went and did the exact same thing a second time. The 2020 primaries were even more of a laughing stock than the 2016 one, with a cavalcade of pitiful candidates that in any fair system Bernie would’ve probably won.

Personally i think it’d be very interesting if both Trump and Bernie ran in 2016 as third and fourth party candidates. Both were incredibly popular in their own right. It may have broken the 2-party system.

Alas that was not meant to be.

Bernie does not run to win. SAAVY?

Regardless, the last generations lack of
Morals and Ethics are proudly on display.

Corruption at its finest.

They are proudly cheats and crooks.
Not to mention "the big lie".

If you don't believe it,
they slap a lable on you.

this is what happened to Ron Paul if you recall.

So, the mainstream media screwed Bernie Sanders. Indeed.

I also find it pretty interesting that the same people who think that the media colluded to affect an election outcome for the DNC, argued against the media colluding to destroy Donald Trump.

So what's the common denominator then? The media. They are the enemy of the people, period. They need to be held accountable.

It was even worse what they did to Ron Paul. I remember a poll that showed he came in second in a debate. So the media just omitted second place on their reporting.

They would not mention him all together even though he was doing better than most of the candidates in the field.

Bernie got a crap ton of love from the MSM compared to what Ron Paul got.
