Conventional media wisdom is gaga over Biden’s lift in national polls since he announced. The former VP was barely ahead of Sanders in polling before April 25. The normal upward spike after a major candidate’s formal announcement rollout was made spikier by reverential coverage from the many journalists who seem quite fond of him.

The elite-oriented atmosphere of media aversion to Sanders is in sync with media disregard for the power of community-based activism that could result in a Sanders presidency. For the establishment press corps, the idea of grassroots progressive populism as a pathway to the White House is very strange. But for people who want genuine progressive change, it’s the only path.

The Presstitute Media Propagandists have been reduced to nothing more than clueless, soulless, automatons mouthing only what their daily "talking points" sheet orders them to spew. From what little I have watched those orders are to "sell" Biden, degrade Sanders, ignore Gabbard, and "go easy" on Harris and Warren in case the brainwashing campaign favoring Biden fails.

Ah, Dennis!


You have such a way with words! You have summed up the whole nasty scene quite well, except I wonder whether those "journalists" have talking point sheets and marching orders laid down for them, or are they just fawning and trying to please their corporate sponsors with their skewed writing?
