So was watching MSNBC coverage...

last night. It was disheartening to see them rant and rave about how Bernie is just being self-centered, nasty and destructive and how his supporters are just idealistic young folks with no real life experience and are not democrats. The condescension was dripping from their lips like Hillary can do no wrong. Even the cool headed heads were drowned out by the yelling and constant bias against Bernie – especially by Joy Reid and, of course, Chris Matthews shaking his head in harsh disapproval of all things Bernie. They were mad last night about the reality that Bernie isn’t just going to roll over; it all came crashing down hard on them especially as they realized that Hillary has major weaknesses that won’t now be papered over immediately and may limp into the nomination. They told us for months (heck years) that Hillary was going to win not just by huge margins, but without a real challenge from any quarter. I will no longer watch MSNBC and might even have to revoke my membership in the Democratic Party iif this kind of behavior continues.


PS – A note of appreciation to Legends303 of Hillary group for providing the framework and much of the text for this post. The names and some of the facts have been changed to provide perspective, but the sentiments remain the same.

1. Some discussion on CNN last night looped around on itself also...

 

... when they suddenly realized that Hillary's establishment cred compared to the outcry against the establishment ... and Trump's ability to lower the boom on anyone who attacks him...

suddenly led to a nearly universe ending paradox.

It was a close one.

2. Never before in the History of

Presidential Politics have we had a Democratc Candidate whose campaign is more in line with Republican politics than with Democratic ideology.Hillary is a Corportist.She has the Corporate funding,the Corporate Media behind her and her Campaign organization is filled with right wing advisers using Karl Rove tactics
So why should we expect the media to act any different other than bowing to the Queen?
