Now if we can just get the MSM to do their jobs and start vetting Sanders, cuz he's got issues that should keep him from getting anywhere near the Democratic nomination stage.

You're absolutely right, but the media hasn't been doing their jobs for a long time. . There really isn't much space left to critically examine anyone other that Trump, lest they risk pissing off their readers/viewers and the Democrats. It looks like Sanders is gaining momentum and if the DNC and the media screw him again, can you imagine how his hardcore left supporters are going to feel if it happens again? The Dems can't afford to fracture their party into two halves if they want to beat Trump so the media will be very careful not to expose crazy Bernie, just in case he's the one.

If real journalism still existed, Bernie and Warren's bad math would have been exposed and explained a long time ago.

Please elucidate as to the issues that Sen. Sanders has regarding obtaining the democratic nomination.
Of note, you used the acronym MSM, which I take to mean Mainstream Media, a phrase popularized by Gov. Palin during the 2008 campaign. If you would like to retract it for the record I can understand.

WOW!!
Thank God for Elizabeth Warren. Without her 1/1024th "Peruvian Indian Blood", there would be no diversity in the democrat debate,

" Andrew Yang’s (D) campaign on Saturday blasted the Democratic National Committee (DNC) after the presidential hopeful failed to meet the polling threshold required to participate in next week’s debate in Des Moines, Iowa.

Yang failed to meet the required polling threshold ahead of the January 10 deadline, which required candidates to garner at least five percent support in at least four DNC-approved polls or seven percent in two early state polls — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. Candidates also needed to report at least 225,000 individual donors with 1,000 in at least 20".

My favorite candidate, Marianne Williamson, finally dropped out of the race. Sad to see her go, I think she brought a fresh perspective to the debate stage. New debate coming soon.

I really thought Bloomberg was running only to buy ads to go after Donald Trump but after watching so many of his ads during football this weekend, he isn't attacking the current President so much as pushing for his own nomination. I do like that he has never taken special interest money. In 2016, we had two New Yorkers running against each other, could it happen again?

?? 2?? Trump and who in 2016? Clinton is from Chicago, then Arkansas. She's no New Yorker.

The Clintons moved to New York a long while back, she ran for the Senate in NY.
US Senate Career of Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton's Residence

Whitehaven is a Clinton family-owned mansion in Washington, D.C. used by Hillary Clinton when she is in residence in the capital. (The primary Clinton home is in Chappaqua, New York.)


ramage, Governor Palin popularized "lamestream media" not mainstream media; that term has been in use for decades.

Bernie Sanders is officially an Independent, not a Democrat, and his policies better fit the socialist or communist parties IMO. He's old, he's already had a heart attack on the campaign trail (and I just love that double-standard in media coverage where nothing more has been said about his health, and yet Clinton was made to be frail and weak after fainting from exhaustion and illness after non-stop campaigning), and it was like pulling teeth to get him to release his tax returns.

He has questionable ties to Russia (honeymooned there where he slammed US policy), and his former campaign manager was Tad Devine who worked with Paul Manafort to help elect Yanukovich, the Russian-friendly former president. He's voted both for and against sanctions on Russia and Iran, and has on the whole not been all that productive writing legislation.

I view Sanders as a too-far-left, extreme candidate whose campaign hurts the Democratic platform, and should he somehow win the nomination would guarantee a 2nd term for Trump.

"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
