Bernie Sanders Blasts The Media For Not Covering The Real Issues Of The Campaign

At a series of campaign events across New Hampshire, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders slammed the media for not covering the issues that matter in the campaign.

During a campaign event in Littleton, NH, Sanders said, “What the American people want is a media that looks at the real problems facing America and does not look at politics as though it were a football game or a soap opera.”

Sanders challenged the media directly during a meeting with reporters in Conway, NH:

I want you to talk about and force discussion about climate change. Do you think you do that enough? I would like you to force discussion of poverty in America. I have talked over and over and over again that 51 percent of African-American kids are unemployed or underemployed. You think that’s an important issue? I do. Are you going to discuss it?

The American people want a discussion of the real issues. They don’t really care that Marco Rubio threw a football and hit some kid in the head. Not one of the great issues facing our society.

Nearly every interview with Sen. Sanders that has been done by the national media has featured questions about Hillary Clinton and her emails. The questioning of Sanders has turned to his opinion of Vice President Biden.

The media wants to talk about anything other than the issues because the corporate press in this country has decided that the American people are stupid, and they don’t care about the issues.

Sen. Sanders and former Sec. of State Clinton are the only two candidates in either party who are trying to run a civil campaign that discusses the issues. Neither Democratic candidate has attacked the other, and the media has ignored their discussion.

Bernie Sanders is raising important issues, and the media doesn’t want to hear it, so he directly challenged them to discuss the things that matter to the American people. Poor people don’t care about the will he or won’t he of Joe Biden, or Hillary Clinton’s emails. They want to hear about how a system that has been taken over by millionaires and billionaires can be made to work for them. They want an opportunity for a better future.

Sanders is calling the media out, and his efforts to force the media to have a meaningful conversation are helping to improve public discourse and inform the electorate.

No matter who wins the Democratic nomination, the country is better off because of the campaign that Bernie Sanders is running.
