Why are the media including super delegates in reporting Hillary's and Bernie's numbers?

Chuck Todd and gang were talking about the numbers and Hillary was up by 600. At the very end of the conversation Todd says: that includes super delegates but Hillary is still ahead by a unsurmountable 200 delegates.
The media is the enemy!!!!!!!!!

2. Superdelegates removed, Clinton is only up by 205.

 

Bernie'll get that made up plus more after the 15th.

9. ^^ this is the answer

 

Why Clinton, you ask? Because Bernie scares the shit out of the establishment, that's why.

8. Because they count?

And most places when doing it are listing it as both, so you can see which are regular and which are superdelegates.

10. Actual they don't count

 

at this time because they only vote at the convention. To declare them for her is just media slant to make it seem Sanders has no chance of winning. BTW anyone who think Super Delegates are a good idea and are happy Clinton has them needs to take a step back and ask yourself Why are lobbyist who are Super Delegates votes worth about 10,000 of us lower class citizen votes? We the people are 1/100000 as important than "Jeff Berman, well-known for his delegate-strategy work in the past, is being paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign to organize her delegate-counting effort while himself being a superdelegate. A “top lobbyist” at Bryan Cave LLP, Berman previously worked as a lobbyist for the private prison company Geo Group and as a lobbyist helping TransCanada build support for the Keystone XL."
