13. If anyone believes that, they don't understand marketing, corporations don't spend billions

of dollars exposing their products for good will purposes, they're literally buying a piece of your mind, it begins when you're a child; viewing cartoons and its' commercials selling toys and sugar coated breakfast cereal and up until you need or want adult diapers, prescription drugs, reverse mortgages and funeral insurance.

When the time comes that you need or want a product, theirs' will be the first that come to mind.

The corporate media has not only blacked out Bernie, they've kept Trump front and center from day 1, regardless of actual newsworthy events just for the purpose of keeping Trump's face and name in the American Peoples' consciousness.

The corporate media know that Bernie has tapped into legitimate anger felt by a disenfranchised electorate, and that by promoting Trump's non-stop fear and hate based racism, misogyny, xenophobia and all around inane stupidity, the corporate media along with Trump can divert or misdirect a sizable portion of the American Peoples' legitimate angst working against Bernie and his message.

With the American Nation starving for nutritious political sustenance, the corporate media continually peddles junk food because it serves their extremely narrow mega-conglomerate self interests, they love Citizens United; vast quantities of dollars flowing into political commercials from all over the planet, low taxed super salaries for their ownership, upper management and star punditry, this is their preeminent and overriding concern.

It affects and colors all their coverage and commentary or lack thereof.

Thanks for the thread, WhaTHellsgoingonhere.
