6. Thank you for your input and I appreciate what you are saying but

you did come off as my bossy big sister. Did you give me a homework assignment? I am in my 60's, have been voting since 1972 (McGovern.) I have been a state volunteer coordinator and have canvassed, phone banked, etc, etc for years. I am almost maxed out on donating to Bernie and I am retired.

But to keep the peace I wrote this and will send it off to all the listed organizations. What I had hoped to accomplish today was something a little more immediate because they not only still have the same chyron up, their talking heads keep repeating the same BS.

Now can I please go outside and play?
Tomorrow is my mother in law's 89th BD and I need to get some stuff done.

Director of News/Politics,

I am disgusted by your ‘coverage’ of the Democratic Primaries/Caucuses. Why do you never discuss Bernie Sanders’ policy positions and his history as a Mayor, member of the House of Representatives and Senator? Why do you freely donate millions of dollars’ worth of free air time to Donald Trump? I will be contacting and boycotting your advertisers if you continue the Bernie blackout and incessant Trump TV.

It appears your best efforts to drown out the millions of voices supporting Senator Sanders is failing. Is it because you are concerned if he wins he will pose a threat to your seemingly unlimited advertising dollars? It has been interesting to watch your ‘journalists’ in various contortions trying mightily to spin this election in Hillary Clinton’s favor. Why do you add the super delegates to your vote totals when they have not yet voted? Your bias is showing and it is a sad reflection on the pathetic state of what passes for journalists and journalism in 2016.

My best friend and college roommate from over 45 years ago is a tenured Professor of Journalism at a large university in Texas. This is what she tells her students, “Read and watch everything you can that is available in the media for election coverage and vow that you will NOT follow their memes. Write and report the opposite of what they are saying because they have lost all integrity.”

Best regards,
