(Slate)   Random interviews with hard-core Sanders supporters pokes holes in the persistent "Bernie Bro" myth that says they'll only vote for their candidate and nobody else. They'd totally consider voting for someone else: Tulsi Gabbard   (slate.com) divider line

That's a great sample size that they have there. There's no way that that couldn't represent an accurate representation of what the voters want. There is no way that this article could have cherry picked the people quoted to make Sanders supporters look like loons.

This isn't journalism, this is either cherry picking from a large number of interviews to get a desired result or absolute laziness in that these are the only people interviewed. Either way it has about as much journalistic integrity as something written in a toilet stall and should be treated as such. It doesn't matter which candidate this is about when you pull something so half assed as this.

I guess it's nice to know that Sanders is a full blown threat.

Finally.

The derpage is thick.

Feels like we're head for four more years of the asshole.

Hopefully, no more than that, but I'm not optimistic.

Unlikely.  But he will lose 45 out of 50 states' Electoral College votes if the's the Dem candidate.  The election becomes a referendum on Socialism rather than a referendum on Trump, and that puts Trump right back in the game.  A *TON* of people who hate Trump are scared to death what the Bernie Plan wants to do to their taxes.

Not that I'd be surprised by the DNC doing that, but where has that been reported? I've just been seeing a shrinking gap between Pete and Bernie but nothing about the DNC stepping in.

This trolly thread can otherwise f*ck off. Tulsi is a tool and I loathe her presence.

The corporate media and billionaires sure have some axe to grind against a candidate not in their pockets.
 
2020-02-06 1:20:54 PM  
Best I can tell, Sanders came in a very slight second in Iowa and with everything I have seen, won the popular vote.

So all the media can do is run hit pieces on him? Thus the reason so many people hate the media.

/I'm not even that big a fan of his, but come on.

Anything bad reported about Bernie or his supporters was made up by the DNC and the corporate media.

Anything bad reported about any other candidate is 100% accurate.

Well I care, damn it! Being technically correct is the best kind of correct. But in this case, it aint even being technically correct; its being completely correct.

Yeah, Sanders is all-or-nothing on a lot of proposals, I'm not one to proposal-shame but maybe just focus on doing some good instead of trying to wrap up everything-and-the-kitchen-sink into one basket. I have enough difficulty trying to explain to coworkers and neighbors why private insurance are rent-seekers.

Media's gonna be working really hard to keep "Bernie Wins Iowa" out of the public awareness.  They're going to keep fighting against the only actually left-leaning option, because their bosses are billionaires and they like their jobs writing brainless bullshiat as a vanity project for some fancy lad princeling.

Everyone who is protected from their own incompetence in the current system, provided that they protect the powerful... will protect the powerful.  That will include all the people who fiddled while the world burned, popping out substance-less articles about snarky owns and clapbacks from politicians who ended up voting for the shiat they performatively opposed.
