Desperate, aren’t they? The times they are a changin’, corporate mass media. You are not going to ram your choice of candidates down our throats anymore the way you would a bottle of Coke or a copy of the NY Times. It’s Bernie all the way.

A review of the political commentary from Matthews passed ‘has-been’ status Saturday into ‘never was’ and indecency. How often has he been dead wrong on issue after issue; but, now the curtain is pulled back and he is revealed as just a hate-mongering troll attacking a candidate whose grandparents died at the hand of Nazis.

It’s time to call MSNBC’s advertisers to request they disassociate from this kind of repugnant hate-mongering. The network certainly won’t take action - it purged all thought from decent people decades ago.

FREAK OUT! Mr. America, walk on by your schools that do not teach
Mr. America, walk on by the minds that won’t be reached
Mr. America try to hide the emptiness that’s you inside
But once you find that the way you lied
And all the corny tricks you tried
Will not forestall the rising tide of HUNGRY FREAKS DADDY!

They won’t go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their minds
The left behinds of the great society

HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY!

Mr. America, walk on by your supermarket dream
Mr. America, walk on by the liquor store supreme
Mr. America try to hide the product of your savage pride
The useful minds that it denied
The day you shrugged and stepped aside
You saw their clothes, and then you cried,
“Those HUNGRY FREAKS, DADDY!”

They won’t go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their minds
The left behinds of the great society.

MSNBC’s freakout about Sanders only serves to indicate that Bernie Sanders stands up for Americans that MSNBC doesn’t report on — the trodden upon non-wealthy majority — and that Sanders is the best remedy for what ails the US.

Sanders is the signal, MSNBC and other MSM outlets are the noise.

Maybe I should start watching MSDNC. I don’t want to miss seeing Matthews hang himself after Bernie’s next win.

From someone who actually knows Comcast CEO Brian Roberts I can tell you this, had it not been for Trump seeking a second term, he would probably have run himself. He is an arrogant piece is shit that is in many ways more conservative than Trump.
That explains the freak out.

MSNBC’s coverage of the Nevada primary was despicable, but they did air Bernie’s victory speech in El Paso. Bernie went through the list of domestic policies he plans to implement. I couldn’t identify one item that any Democrat should be against. I would love to hear the MSNBC talking heads critique Bernie’s speech and explain exactly what they find wrong with his agenda. Bernie’s message is simply uplifting, they don’t get it and they are paid to figure such things out.

And today, (who would have guessed?) The Washington Post and the New York Times are chock-full of anti-Bernie articles.

I thought it was because it would cost money that belongs in the pockets of 1%-ers and war profiteers.

"There is a power that comes from being witnessed and being recognized in your pain and suffering."

And there is a lot of suffering going on in US America and the Sanders Campaign is exposing it. Attention is now payed to every corner of this nation–about time!

Solidarity!

Your point is good but maybe over here they don’t know the difference but here it was reported that he was in San Antonio for that victory speech.

Exactly! Comcast pits MSNBC ex-yuppies against CNBC tea-baggers (the perfect self-pereptuating protection, projecting scam). It’s their dead-eyed, speciously gullible AUDIENCE that spooks and disgusts the “working class,” they joined Reagan in disappearing for four decades? MSNBC is by, for and about those reactionaries who feed upon us.

Boston- NYC - DC media axis of propaganda.
Failed to lift Warren above Bernie

The MSNBC right-wing talking-heads, and that idiot Carville, are clearly mental - devoid of the ability to reason, see or speak truth; loud-mouthed out-of touch asshats! Journalists? Not in this lifetime!

Sloppy Joe sez “we’re alive and comin-back” - wishful thinkin Joe, your dropping like a stone in SC and Bernie is rising strongly!
The cat-fight twins Amy and Mayo Pete are done! Liz just hangin-on, and Bloomy is not going to win over the people even with his billions tryin to buy loyalty and votes - say goodnight Gracie!

Just wait until Bernie wins, perhaps narrowly, in South Carolina, then on Super Tuesday wins many states including Texas and California - the MSNBC empty corrupt mouthpiece shills heads will fuckin explode!

BERNIE 2020 For the People and Planet!
