I find it interesting that the media has spent hour upon hours covering Donald Trump’s bloviating lack of substance statements. On the other hand, they have a blackout with respect to Bernie Sanders. He has provided very specific solutions to the nations problems, but nothing has been said about them in the mainstream media.
If they do discuss Mr. Sanders, it is done by referring to him as a fringe candidate who doesn’t have a chance to win. If that is true, how come over 20,000 people came out to see him in Portland, 16,000 in Seattle, 15,000 in Phoenix and so on?
Could it be that the corporate media is scared that his message will resonate among the middle class? Today’s electronic media is owned by billionaires who tell millionaires what to broadcast.
Fortunately, today we do have social media and it gives voice to everyone. Long gone are the days of Edward R. Murrow, Huntley & Brinkley, or Walter Cronkite — broadcasters who told the truth the way they saw it.
