News articles matter-of-factly denigrate these popular proposals as “shoot-the-moon policy ideas” (Washington Post) that may push the Democratic Party “over a liberal cliff” (New York Times). I sometimes wonder if the computer keyboards in certain newsrooms—besides letter and number keys—have a single key that spits out the 8-word phrase: “too far left to win a general election.”

Elite journalists regularly quote their “expert” sources in the Democratic establishment who express worries that if Bernie Sanders wins the nomination, he’ll lose badly in November.

Or do those who own or run corporate media (and corporate Democrats) have a different worry—that Sanders will win the general election, shake up the system, and take away some of their wealth and power?

Gotta notice that a heap of corporate media newspapers have been shutting down....just maybe because they give little of value to readers.

One value of newspapers is that, unlike on-line news, we can all assume that a LOT of others are getting the same headlines, news, and commentary...to agree with or disagree. Maybe this is an opening for ad-free newspapers...uncontaminated with bias toward the Pharms, Banks, Plastic, etc interests that fill traditional papers with ads.
