The protest against the “Bernie blackout” comes a week after Sanders took Hawaii, Washington and Alaska by large margins in the primaries on Western Saturday, which CNN downplayed.

    How about protesting a lack of democratic coverage in general? Another yawn from the Sanders camp. I’m sure they lit a bong when they were done.

    Now this is rich! And the irony is palpable.

    Conservatives been complaining about MSM for a decade being unfair and partisan. Now the left is fighting the left because they don’t feel they are getting the attention.

    Oh my, Karma!

    Yes of course. The media is completely biased and generally doesn’t even report the truth.

    Americans you are all screwed up. It is pretty obvious that an upper hand uses the media to decide presidential candidates for you. Donald Trump gets more coverage on CNN more than all candidates combined. In the eyes of the rest of the world, Donald Trump is just but crap.

    Anyone we disagree with is biased. And in normative matters, there is no meaning to the idea of “the truth.” What is “the truth” regarding the question of whether chocolate tastes better than vanilla?
