Common Dreams ran a shocking piece on how the the Washington Post ran 16 negative stories on Bernie Sanders in the space of 16 hours, between roughly 10:20 PM EST Sunday, March 6, to 3:54 PM EST Monday, March 7—a window that included the crucial Democratic debate in Flint, Michigan. Here are the headlines..
“Sanders speaks to white ideological liberals and young Democrats. Clinton speaks to practically everyone else in the party.” And… “the two candidates talked about fracking, an issue on which there is an obvious, sensible middle ground that Sanders predictably scorned.”
“What is striking about Sanders, is that he’s campaigning on Two Big Lies about the global political economy. The only way President Sanders would help address climate change is by slowing down global economic growth and impoverishing millions and billions of people.”
“Hillary Clinton is building her delegate lead, and Bernie Sanders is getting angry. The Vermont senator needed a good night in Michigan to change the dynamic of a nominating contest that has been slipping away from him. He didn’t get it.” (Except he won Michigan!!!)
Just another example of how the establishment is scared of Bernie.
