Bernie media bias

In yesterday’s Indiana primary all the cable channels could talk about was Trump,Trump,Trump. hardly a mention of Bernie’s upset of Hillary.

In fact the day before the Indiana primary in a Associated Press article by Thomas Beaumont and Steve Peoples here is what they wrote about Bernie: New signs emerged that front-runner Hillary Clinton’s rival is fading as well. They don’t mention said signs. Imagine that! How did they get these signs? Tea leaves? Coconut shells? Signals from outer space? The lady psychic from New Jersey?

Furthermore the two Woodward and Bernstein wannabees wrote: His total of $25.8 million raised last month is a marked decline from the $46 million collected in March. Collecting $25.8 in one month is not chopped liver my friends considering they are small donations from regular folks, not Super PACS or shady PACS.

They also wrote: Polls suggest a tight race. Bernie not only upset Brunhilda but not even close, with at least a 6% margin. I hope CNN does not come out with a headline saying: “BERNIE SURVIVES DEVASTATING WIN IN INDIANA”

It’s evident that Bernie is not a sexy or polarizing candidate so the cable channels and news outlets deep in their hearts do not want him to beat Hillary. Trump gets people worked up with his bombastic diatribes and Hillary is polarizing so they have a better “Q” rating than plain soft spoken Bernie.

The western states are coming soon, I think Bernie will do better than the so called “experts” call it.

The headline in the Palm Beach Post this morning was “Trump ousts Cruz” No headline about Bernie’s upset.Imagine that!
