    All the news media seems to be going out of their way to not talk about Sanders. They will say something that concerned him but never follow up like they are not supposed to talk about him. Even the Democratic pundants gloss over him like he doesn't really matter. I feel like Bernie Sanders is the last lifeline that will be thrown to us and if we don't take it then ......you.

    Chet completely agree; he's the only person who does not paint others black as well gives appropriate answers and has a "program" of what he intents to do. Like I said in some other mails if he had a posture like Trump and was a body builder with a big mouth he would be elected in a flash. Due to the fact people here only look to the "outside" of a person they may think the guy can drop dead the next day because he looks kind of "old"". Brains do not matter here.

    Bernie doesn't give any of the media anything to sell ads with! Why do you think Trumpy is everywhere 24/7? It's because he sells advertising clicks for them. The media couldn't really care about any candidates politics only if they can turn a buck on their BS!!!

    Chet, the issue I see here is that, like Bernie himself says, he relies ONLY on the "small" (

    This morning on morning joe Mika, who was talking before about how treatment of Betnie wasn't fair, said something about Bernie and then quickly moved on. The financial situation is bordering on another huge correction. Every other candidate is totally mum about the situation. Trump mentioned very briefly something about Wall Street. There is without a doubt a correction every few years. They call it a correction because it might not sound too good to say that in order to keep getting an income the price of stocks have to drop so they can bid it up again.i believe Bernie might call attention to the farce. Berine is good.

    Right ! That is why Fox made up with Trump. Their income desire over rode their ethics.

    I find it truly amazing that BERNIE attracts all these huge crowds, without needing a jazz band, or 15 clowns twirling on a high wire. He is just what he says he is, with no pretense, -- and yet people line up to hear his every word. That, in itself, is a Miracle. I am hoping to see him in person in this next few weeks,

    He is EXACTLY the Man we need, with the MESSAGE we need, at THIS EXACT MOMENT in History. And apparently, thousands of People will all AGREE that BERNIE SANDERS would make a GREAT PRESIDENT. (And so do I. )

    This will be a very difficult decision, when you try to balance Hillary into the equation. Our problem, is that we have an Abundance of TALENT in the Democratic Party. (But how cool is that)? : ) And all 20+ candidates on the GOP side, can't compare at all with our 2 or 3 candidates. --- WE ARE SIMPLY THE BEST.

    Hillary might be a victory for the Democratic Party but not the Democratic people. Bill is responsible for the 2008 crash. Hillary has said nothing that identifies our financial problem and she is more closely aligned with Wall Street than Main Street.

    I just wonder about the word "TALENT" what Eternal wrote; my guess most politicians have only one talent and that is like preachers do, convincing the crowd with talk only. About Hillary I wonder about her talent, looking at on how she handled the "e-mail" issue. If you only make money for "speeches" that does not mean you have "talent".

    I think they don't pay attention to him because he doesn't pander to the people who fund our corporate media. He is one of the few politicians who actually says what he believes and he isn't afraid to say it.

    The "media" in this country don't know how to cover him because they are used to politicians toeing the line they are supposed to toe. Comcast doesn't want NBC News talking about him because he has positions that would hurt their bottom line. The Walt Disney Company doesn't want ABC News talking about him because he has positions that would hurt their bottom line. I'm surprised that CBS doesn't give him much air time because they are their own corporation. And we all know why Fox doesn't want to talk about him.

    If you want to understand why the "media" doesn't talk about Bernie then follow the money. These people are terrified of him. What better way to try to get rid of him than completely ignore him?

    Jared, Absolutely correct; in other threads we already discussed the "media" in this country, so I have nothing to add.
