1. They just can't let go of their power. When the corporate power structure is threatened...

 

...these are the types of things that happen. WE'RE ALL WATCHING AND DOCUMENTING THIS!!

2. This post is complete BS

MSNBC admitted nothing of the sort. I suppose what you are proposing is suppressing the news to help Sanders then.

5. They certainly did admit something of the sort.

Paraphrase. "We're going to announce that Hillary Clinton is the nominee before polls close in California. Will it suppress Clinton's vote or Sander's vote more?"

They're talking about time zones, and whether NJ results should be divulged before CA stops voting. In the Internet Age, it's an entirely moot point.

3. rec'd and thanks leftcoastmountains

I've not seen any admission from the MSNBC networks executive office of bias. It is obvious if you tune in to Chris Matthews or Rachael Maddow that they do favor Mrs. Clinton, imo.

10. Yes, yes he is!

To announce Hillary as the winner before the polls close is just WRONG and will indeed skew the vote.

What an admission!

22. They are trying that in California. They keep repeating the Hillary is the winner in hopes

that Californians won't vote for Bernie.

I think it might be backfiring. We Californians are a feisty bunch.

13. Reporting NJ voting doesn't suppress CA results anymore than reporting any other

earlier contests. This is complete nonsense.

14. Which is why

All voting should be done on paper ballots. Most precincts in the USA have a little over 1000 voters. Let the good people at the polls count the votes over night and release the results the following morning. Counting a few thousand ballots will take some number of hours and we can all go to bed knowing that we've done our minor duty by voting. This rush to "break the news" is just more Madison Avenue crap to get us to buy cars, pills, beverages, and more pills for the pills that don't work.

Hand counted ballots. No results until sunup the next day. And Tweety and the rest of the fawning corporate media can sit on a chainsaw until the results are announced.

16. It is the Superdelegates

Suppressing the vote is announcing that Clinton has won enough delegates by counting superdelegates on June 7th when they do not vote until the convention.

17. We need to make clear to them we are noting their actions

I don't have FB but if I did, I would make these a-holes aware of the backlash that may occur. Remember, there are over 10 million of us. I'm not sure how else to say it diplomatically when MSBS pisses you off.

19. Gore had the right idea when he created an 'independent' network (called Current)

and even though it wasn't a success, this may eventually be how to counteract
the biased crap on the major networks. Not like what FOX did, which essentially
served a political party, but more like the model used by the independent film movement
that was a reaction to the major hollywood studio cartel.

27. Current was a good effort by Gore and I was sorry to see it go. For us

Free Speech TV on Dish has been a great provider of programs like Amy Goodman's Democracy Now!, the daytime Thom Hartman Program, Ring of Fire with Mike Papantonio, France 24, David Pakman, the Laura Flanders Show, Bioneers and others along with progressive documentaries they carry on the environment, politics, labor, world affairs and more.

So many on the left are getting their info. from the independent New Media online, rather than the declining 5 corporate owned monopoly television networks- from the Young Turks/TYT and alternative print news websites Truthout, Common Dreams, the Intercept, Truthdig and more as you probably know. Ed Schultz' nightly News program and The Big Picture with TH, M-F evenings, broadcast by RT (Russia Today) on Dish TV or online livestream are also very good sources. Eventually Net neutrality will be challenged and pressure to charge fees for the internet will happen, it's only a matter of time I think although I hope I'm wrong.

In the last 20 years Fox TV and RW Hate Radio with 1,200 channels have done tremendous damage no doubt about it. The contracts which 90 US colleges and universities have for sports team coverage with Limbaugh also contaminate young minds with ultraconservative lies and garbage which is deplorable.

20. Tweety Pie won't be whistling Dixie if...

... Bernie indeed turns that state upside down on June 7th. He'll be eating crow. If it happens (and I think it can), the reaction on all of their faces will be priceless. If Bernie does it, try to stay a bit composed so you can hear their reactions.

Bernie needs to run those ads! "California Dreamin"

And we supporters need to support him till the end.

This one is real easy:

Last edited Wed May 25, 2016, 09:57 AM - Edit history (1)

when wife Kathleen came in third in the congressional election won by left MD State Senator and Amer. Univ. constitutional law prof Jamie Raskin. The network didn't say much about that race. She received campaign funds from Clinton connections, employees of Marriot where she was an exec and others according to the reports. It didn't help apparently.
