Anyone trying to take Sanders down is part of the problem. You see it in the major journalists and publications, you even see it here in the detractors. So much that is wrong with our entire planet right now is as a result of these liars peddling their bullshit. If only we lived in a world where people like Sanders actually held sway.

I don’t read the NYT physical or online edition but a google search shows that they have a few articles on it. What’s this user talking about exactly ? Did the NYT’s decline to do more stories, put it on the front page etc?





Edit:
Read the story the tweet was referring to. Seemed fairly positive?
The musical styles in Mr. Sanders’s playlist range all over the place, from the wistful Simon & Garfunkel song “America” (returning from his 2016 campaign) to disco, country, R&B, punk and reggae. But the message is single-minded. Three songs have revolution in the title; then there are “Make a Change,” “Power to the People,” “Uprising” and “Takin’ It to the Streets.” Point made. — JON PARELES

If this consistent narrative is the only response to the most sweeping criminal justice plan in Presidential history, yeah...there might be just tinge of a hatred there. Just a bit. You ask whether media would only put on democratic and republican partisans that would only agree with the core message that the network wants to send to the audience? Its not really a conspiracy

No politician should be above scrutiny. Bernie may mean well, but he's not as good at this as you think he is. The media can be terrible, of course, the problems come in when any criticism of Bernie is lumped into that, and conspiracy theories are encouraged.
