Bernie Sanders is on a journey that looks similar to Howard Dean-- a lot of popularity, cover of Time magazine, a lot of buzz. Then, after coming in third, after John Kerry and John Edwards in the Iowa primary this happened:




The "Dean scream" was characterized as a media gaffe. I never thought it was nearly as bad as it was characterized (did you?) But the MSM put a loop of about 20 or 30 seconds into high rotation and it was used to make Dean look foolish.

I don't believe that the scream was the key. A smart video editor could do it to any candidate, and today, there are staffers whose job it is to shoot continuous video with the goal of catching gaffes, or anything that can be exploited.

This doesn't work without the collusion and cooperation of the mainstream media. It hasn't been necessary yet, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen to Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Ben Nelson-- candidates who may not be the first choice of the Democratic or Republican parties, or the MSM, though Nelson seems to be doing himself in without the help of the MSM.

I'm wondering whether such a concerted media take-down attack on Sanders and/or Trump will be as effective this time around. is there a way to immunize the candidates against such an attack?

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
