for hiding her positions from voters. That's a slimy position to take.

You can't use corrupt media as an excuse for corporate politicians to deceive voters and deliberately hide from the democratic process.

If Hillary were truly concerned about corrupt media, she would be calling out their avoidance of real issues and doing her best to work around them to make her agenda clear. That is what Bernie Sanders is doing:

Instead, she is USING corrupt media as an excuse to avoid taking positions on issues where her actual positions are unpopular, and predatory. She is the poster candidate for the vapid, policy-avoidant, entertainment pageants our elections have become under corporate rule. She ought to be ashamed.
