Last night, I messaged Rob Kall to expect an early morning submission from me regarding the Mainstream News Media's poor coverage of the resignation of Congressional Representative Tulsi Gabbard from the Vice-Chair of the DNC. When I awoke early this morning, I was pleasantly shocked to see that Fox News and MSNBC's "Morning Joe", MSNBC, and are running with the story. Granted, it is not on the front pages of any of those sites and is under Politics. There is nothing on Fox's front page either. If it was any other Candidate, including the GOP, a story of this magnitude would have been under Breaking News and we would have been peppered with coverage until we were sick of hearing about it. The Bias towards Clinton is still there. However, this situation is fluid and most likely changing more rapidly than I can write.

One of the biggest surprises I had was when I looked at CNN this morning. (Last night, out of sheer anger, I sent CNN a scathing message that I was going to organize a Twitter Campaign against them. I supplied a link to the Op-Ed I wrote in regard the proposed Civil Rights Action and complimented them for making my case by refusing to cover the Tulsi Gabbard story, which I still maintain should have been under Breaking News.) When I checked their main page for CNN this morning and nothing was there, I almost started the Op-Ed I intended to write. As an afterthought, I clicked on Politics, and there it was, hiding with a small blurb you wouldn't have noticed if you were not looking for it. A few minutes later, it was on the Front page under Politics.

I have not been able to find anything from CBS or ABC, and both of them need to be targeted by us to help Sanders take his rightful place on Super Tuesday. The recent developments make any Federal Action I intended to file Moot. It may not be the coverage we wanted, but that too may change.

What Can We Do to Assist Bernie Sanders for Super Tuesday?

I'm glad you asked that question. To help the Sanders Campaign, today is the day we need to coordinate our efforts and stand together in solidarity to force the changes we believe will best serve the Sanders Campaign. Change is in the air, and ABC just ran their own story on Representative Gabbard, again under Politics. Fluid is an understatement in regard this rapidly changing situation! Checking again, I looked at, and again, under politics, there was a story on Tulsi Gabbard. If I wasn't looking for it, I might not have found it. (Same old story, just a different Network.)

That covers the full range of the Mainstream News Media. Now, we need to make an effort to bring pressure to all of those Networks that haven't placed this story on their front page. They do it for other candidates, and they should do it for Bernie! We learned a long time ago, right here on Op-Ed News, that people, especially Congress and the White House, do not appreciate their phone lines being tied up. Businesses are even more sensitive to those concerns, so if enough of you call and complain, we may be able to help make history!
