Sanders campaign to launch own 'newsletter with scoops'



(snip)

Sanders doubled down on his media criticism in an email to supporters Wednesday, discussing the “corporate media’s dislike of our campaign."

“It is no shock to me that the big networks and news organizations, which are owned and controlled by a handful or large corporations, either barely discuss our campaign or write us off when they do,” he said in the email.

(snip)

Sanders said a recent wave of mergers and takeovers meant that "only a few large corporations like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Fox, Disney, Viacom, and CBS control the vast majority of what we see, hear, and read."

"This is outrageous, and a real threat to our democracy," he wrote. "Because in case you haven’t heard, these corporations have an agenda that serves their bottom line."

3. So, is his early whining a precursor to bashing the eventual nominee and

 

helping elect trump and other GOPers like in 2016?

5. So I would like to know, which is it. He walked back his statement bashing the WAPO one of the most

 

Liberal, clear voices the Dems have..but now he’s launching his own newsletter to talk about media criticism?

Really? Soooo tired of this.

they wanted to set the frame that way.

8. "Sanders walks back suggestion Bezos meddled in Washington Post coverage"

 

“Do I think Jeff Bezos is on the phone, telling the editor of The Washington Post what to do? Absolutely not. It doesn’t work that way,” Sanders told CNN.





If "setting the frame" means, "reporting what he said", I'm good with that.

9. You can't walk back that which you never said. Bernie clarified his position because

 

some in the corporate media conglomerates were being deliberately obtuse to confuse or mislead their viewers and/or readers.

Bernie has never stated that Bezos made phone calls in the first place. he has made implications regarding WAPO's conflict of interest of which few in the corporate media have the guts to even acknowledge because it opens the door to their own inherent financial conflicts of interest.

doesn't write particularly good articles about me. I don't know why. But I guess maybe there's a connection."

12. That does not translate to a phone call. Every editor and reporter/pundit at WAPO

 

knows who owns their paper and cuts their paychecks, it doesn't take a phone call.

Maybe the thousands of negative posts about Sanders in this forum makes you wonder? Sustained negativity can be effective, as many people know.

25. That is true. I see that happening with a lot of things/subjects.

 

Good thing I'm objective. I'll NEVER not like Bernie Sanders - regardless of "this or that".

"This or that" is minor bullshit. Come down to it he is still one of the good ones. I think people forget that.

27. Thanks so much for that reply.

 

There was a lot of talk about unity a few months back, I hope that becomes a thing again.

Btw, if Biden is the nominee I'm 100% in. I'll fire myself up by rewatching his debate with Paul Ryan. A thing of beauty.

Why would anyone other than a sanders supporter care about this newsletter? I trust the media in the real world.
