It has been clear to me from the beginning that corporate owners of news outlets will do anything they can to prevent a Sanders-or-Trump presidency. Just the way things are, is just how they like them: Ultra rich receiving more tax breaks, and everyone else footing the bill through courthouse fees (a personal point of contention) and increased consumption taxes, excluding tariffs on imported finished goods and exported raw materials.
(00:00) “The New York Times public editor, Margaret Sullivan, admitted that people upset with their coverage on Bernie Sanders are right.” Sullivan claims that the NYTimes did not purposely ignore Senator Sanders.
I do not buy Margaret Sullivan’s bullshit argument that the New York Times simply did not take the Sanders campaign seriously. I think that the Times and its cohorts are purposefully passive-aggressive in their lack of coverage of Senator Sanders.
I used to take the Times very seriously. That was then. This is now.
The Times is driven by scum, like “Flat-Worlder” Thomas Friedman and “Israel is to Die For” David Brooks — two jerks I’ll push into the 42nd Street subway tracks if I ever get the chance! In fact, those who work for the NYTimes should hide their work badges, if they ride the subway, and they should ALWAYS STAND CLEAR OF THE EDGE OF THE PLATFORM!
The money paradigm, noted by Kyle Kulinski, may be breaking down. He credits the “rightness” of Senator Sanders’s message. While that may be true, I think that there’s even more to the story. Specifically, when a person donates money, even as little as a single dollar, to a campaign, that person casts a vote of conscience. It mentally transforms the donor into an active supporter who will campaign for the candidate at the next Thanksgiving holiday dinner. It’s the sort of advertising that comes for free, but cannot be purchased with any amount of money.
(04:30) “And kudos to the New York Times…” Yeah, kudos, and don’t forget: STAND CLEAR OF THE PLATFORM EDGE and HIDE YOUR WORK ID, if you work for the New York Times because I may be waiting for you!
