Bernie’s 'Political Revolution' is Actually Happening, Although the Corporate Media Won’t Tell You

Bernie’s 'Political Revolution' is Actually Happening, Although the Corporate Media Won’t Tell You That
Thom Hartmann
Don't rely on the media to tell you what's going on.

Bernie Sanders has made voter-turnout history, getting about a third more votes than any other primary candidate in the history of New Hampshire primaries, but much of our media is reporting the opposite; that it’s no big deal what he’s accomplishing.

Rachel Maddow rolled out the latest confused bit of reporting on the evening of Friday, February 12th. Whether this ended up on the air as a Maddow-producer “brilliant idea” or was suggested by the Clinton campaign is unknown, but the entire piece was confounding.

(snip)
First, Bernie’s main premise wasn’t that he could get more people to vote for him (although he’s asserted that and is actually doing it, as I’ll get to in a moment). His main premise is that, unlike President Obama, he will ask the American people to be very, very, very involved in the political process. He’s talked over and over about how if, as president, when he’s trying to get meaningful legislation through, he’ll invite millions of people to come to DC to let Congress know what they think.

But more importantly, in this story (played out in other media as well as MSNBC) the numbers were passed along to us from their source in an astonishingly confusing fashion, given their context.

Bernie Sanders Fox News Sunday Full Interview

&feature=youtu.be


Bernie Sanders faced off with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this morning for the first time since announcing his candidacy.

Sanders talked about his admiration of Antonin Scalia and made the case that he’ll be able to pull surprise upsets in Nevada and South Carolina. Wallace confronted Sanders on everything from accusations that Hillary Clinton is bought off by Wall Street to his claims about income inequality and beliefs on universal health care. Wallace asked at one point, “If the wealthy have rigged the system, why have they done such a lousy job of it?” He even repeatedly pressed Sanders on his belief in single-payer health care. Wallace ended by asking Sanders about the DNC’s refusal to do any debates on Fox News. Sanders said he would be perfectly fine with doing a debate on Fox as long as it’s done fairly. Watch the full interview above, via Fox. Bernie Sanders told Fox News host Chris Wallace that he was skeptical about attending a debate hosted by the conservative network because of the way that it had unfairly treated Democrats in the past. During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Wallace noted that the Democratic National Committee had refused to sanction a debate on Fox News. “I hope you feel that you haven’t been mistreated,” the Fox News host said. “Would you be willing to participate in a Democratic debate on Fox News?” “If we were clear to understand what the guidelines were, what the rules were and to make sure that they were fair and the DNC was in favor of it, I would have no objections,” Sanders explained. “You’ve seen this interview we just did,” Wallace replied, insisting that Fox could be fair. “Chris, I have seen this interview,” Sanders interrupted. “But I have also seen other interviews. So, if I could have a guarantee and knew who the questioners were and the framework for the debate was fair, I would have no objection.”

“I’ll take that as a definite maybe,” Wallace concluded.

Bernie Sanders campaign opens Ann Arbor area office

Fighting income inequality. Getting big money out of politics. Reforming Wall Street. Making college affordable. Health care for all.

Those are some of the many reasons Ann Arbor area Democrats said on Saturday they're supporting Bernie Sanders for president.

About 60 people were on hand for the opening of an Ann Arbor area office for the Sanders campaign at 4072 Packard Road.

Campaign staffers and volunteers plan to mobilize and work the phones over the next month to get out the vote for Sanders in the March 8 primary in Michigan.
