More Maddow Hackory [View all]

I swore I wouldn't watch her anymore (couple of times now) but again I made the mistake tonight. She had this whole segment on "Sanders party of one" where she went detail how Sanders is not raising money for anyone else but himself. Hillary on the other hand is fund raising for other Democrats, and aint it odd Sanders isn't? She played ignorant on how this could be!!!

This story perfectly illustrates how she has sold her soul to be partisan hack. I don't even care if she supports Clinton, but for someone who claims to be student of politics, and is a "journalist" who does 15 minute segments on subjects to inform her viewers, this was blatant hack job.

1) I'll give her the benefit of not investigating or informing her viewers that Clinton is basically using the DNC to get around campaign finance laws, and just having her rich donors get around the $2,700 limit by laundering the money through state level democratic parties. All the money Hillary is raising is all about Hillary. For the purposes of this thread, lets skip this for now.

2) Most important point she could have made and didn't is why is Bernie not raising for other candidates? The obvious answer not mentioned by Maddow is HOW HE IS RAISING MONEY. Typically politicians raise money by holding fundraisers with RICH DONORS. See these rich guys can donate more than the $2,700, so when these rich people go these dinner parties, they donate $2,700, and at same time chip in another $25,000 to other campaigns/state parties. This is how people like the Clinton's get power within the party. They all these rich friends who can attend these fundraisers, and not only give them money, but also money to other causes.

How does Bernie raise his money? He doesn't do these fundraisers. Even if he did, no rich person is going to be attending to give him money. He raises money online. Do you think Hillary is giving away these funds to other people? HAHA.

You can even think this system is great, and nothing wrong or corrupting about it, but don't you think Maddow could have mentioned this? Just said its difficult for Bernie to raise money for anyone else because he does not run fundraisers like other politicians.
